The Women's Crocodile Gaiter by Outdoor Research is a full-length gaiter that offers complete protection for backpackers and hikers as well as mountaineers and alpine climbers. This gaiter is extremely durable and extremely waterproof/breathable. It uses a GORE-TEX fabric as well as a 1000 Denier Cordura in the lower part of the gaiter. The Women's Crocodile uses an extremely durable and thick (this is 2” wide) piece of Velcro at the front to close and open the gaiter. The top of the gaiter is secured through a webbing strap that runs the circumference of the hem of the gaiter as well as a cam buckle. This strap is inserted through the buckle, is pulled taut and the cam is closed. A urethane-coated heavy duty nylon strap is attached to the gaiter through a reinforcement point and is field replaceable. The attachment strap, underneath the Women's Crocodiles, fits through the underside of the foot and secures to the foot through a metal buckle. This buckle is adjustable and allows you to fit the gaiter over various-sized boots and shoes and there's an extra attachment point to stick the extra strap through to keep it from flapping around. The bottom of the gaiter is reinforced with a second Velcro tab. This prevents separation as well as a double-riveted metal buckle that helps secure the laces to your boot.
