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.

World's Most Expensive Gaiters--and Worth it!

This is my second pair--I'm a klutz so I ripped up the old ones--but after buying literally dozens of less expensive gaiters that sorta worked--I have stuck with these bad boys. Yes, they are expensive--but they do everything I want in a gaiter and nothing more. My favorite part is that I can put them on after I have my boot on! How many times have you powdered and patched your feet, straightened your socks, slipped into your boots, laced them to perfection and realized, "dang, I didn't slide that gaiter on my leg first?" Goes with being a klutz but is happens to me A LOT! Anyway--love this gaiter.

Great gators!

These gators couldn’t fit any better. They sit nice and close to my hiking shoes and the adjustment above the ankle makes it a taylored fit. They’re super light and it’s easy to see that there is a lot of attention paid to detail. Well done!

Great product

Well made, easy to use, very high quality. I have had other gaiters; these are tougher and lighter than the others.

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.
