Barrel through rain and wet brush with confidence while keeping your calves and shoes protected. Unlike some gaiters, Vertice Calf Gaiters are designed to fully cover your laces and keep debris and water out of running shoes. Our Vertice fabric is optimized to be lightweight without compromising on durability, and it is among the lightest possible choices for waterproof-breathable rain gear.

These are also available as Ankle height gaiters.

  • Waterproof front zipper for easy deployment.

  • An adjustable, replaceable cord runs under the arch of your shoe. The cord is about 16" (41 cm) long, 2.2 mm extremely strong UHMWPE. The cord can easily be swapped out when it wears through. Extra cord is available for purchase.

  • Adjustable shock cord at the top.

  • A custom made rust-proof aluminum clip near the toe attaches to your laces to keep the gaiters in place.

  • All Zpacks gear has a two year limited warranty against defects in materials or workmanship. Please see our return / warranty policy.

  • Made in the USA.

Gaiter Greatness

These are great. I hike in shorts in the summer, but like gaiters to protect my shins and keep my shoes dry when the trail brush is wet after a rain or morning dew. I did 50 miles in them in hot sunny weather in the Olympic Mountains and could not be happier with them. My feet did not sweat, they are so light I forgot I was even wearing them, and they protected me from brambles etc when off trail,plus the zippers were trouble free and they attach to any footwear with ease. I have some heavier duty gore tex ones for snow and crampon use, but this winter I will try these instead. You cannot go wrong with these.

I am in your system: rodger@rodgerfaulkner.com; but you always address me as “Donna”. She bought me a gift, a pair of gloves, a while ago using my access. So you can delete her name from my account; and address e mails by the correct name (that’s me: rodgerfaulkner) rodger@rodgerfaulkner.com
