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.

Need gentle care

I recently bought a pair of vertice calf gaiters. They are very light and waterproof, but need gentle care. I wore them hiking Mt. Whitney in deep snow and my calves and feet stayed quite dry But I wore them last weekend dry hiking the C2C. After the hike, I noticed several scratches caused by bushes along the trail. I had to patch them up. So I would say they are probably not very durable.
