Trek through rain, water, and brush with confidence while keeping your ankles and shoes protected. Unlike some gaiters, Vertice Rain Gaiters are specially 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 Calf height gaiters.

  • Vertice Rain Gaiters can be put on without removing your shoes.

  • 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.

Height: 8" (20 cm)

Girth: 16" (40 cm)

This three-layer material has a tricot lining to wick moisture away from your skin, a waterproof vapor permeable membrane in the middle, and 7 denier ripstop nylon on the exterior. The outer surface is treated with a durable "C6" water repellent. The Vertice fabric boasts an incredible breathability rating that blows away most other rain gear, including our previous generation fabrics.

Vertice ankle gators

Other gators I owned weren't cutting it in the Vermont mud. Wanted to stay light but a little more rugged. These fit the bill perfectly.

Great gaiters!

So light you hardly know you’ve got them on. Easy to put on over your shoes and they stay put without any riding up. I wore them in a hot sunny day through a wheat stubble field and long grass and didn't suffer a single seed or bit of straw in my socks or shoes. As easy to remove as put on as I’m sure they will be great in wet or snowy weather. Love them. EverythingZpacks does is the best I’ve ever used.

Ankle Gaiters not for everyone

They are well made with great materials. They work well with boots however for lighter weight running shoe style backpacking they are too wide in the back and readily get hung up on rocks and sticks here in the NW.

I love the design of the gaiters.

"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!"
