"Your gaiter design is better than any I've found elsewhere. You should market them more! They beat the competition which forces you to take off your shoe just to remove the gaiter. And other velcro designs are heavy and mostly for winter use, it seems. Sewing the hem at the beginning of the zipper makes it easy to slip the gaiter over the toe, too!" Kurt N.
"I love the design of the gaiters. I love the coverage, that they form fit to small size trail runners, that you can adjust how tightly they pull down to the shoe, that you can vent them while hiking, and taking them on and off is super easy with shoes on. It's so wonderful to work with people who get the idea of custom gear and at such reasonable prices. Really great customer service!" -Zack F.
"I recently returned from a month of bushwalking in Australia and Tasmania where I wore my new gaiters for six days on the Overland Track. It would be a tough test for any gaiter, given the Trackís extremely wet conditions and they performed superbly! Even though it rained for most of the trip, and sections of the trail were boggy, often containing inches of muck, the lower part of my pants/raingear stayed clean and mostly dry. I really like the fact that Zpacks gaiters have a thin zipper instead of velcro, which have been prone to clogging with mud. I also like that the design covered my boot laces and helped them stay mostly free of the muck that everyone else in my party had to deal with, since they were wearing gaiters with less coverage. At the end of the day, the dirt could be easily rinsed off. When I was considering ordering them, I was a bit worried about the fit since Iím an average-sized female (5í8Ē, 140lbs) and the gaiters are only available in one size, but they adjusted nicely. Thanks for a great product that is now a permanent part of my wet-weather arsenal. Iíll be recommending them to my guiding friends." -Eve W.
