Made of water and abrasion-resistant nylon/spandex blend fabric, the Outdoor Research Flex-Tex II Gaiters are low profile for protection from ice in environments without excess snow, and they are also very protective against scree. The single draw on the back of the gaiter tightens down in an x-shape to fit over a wide range of boots and shoes. Ideal for hiking, backpacking or winter activities, the Flex-Tex II Gaiters provide durable, all-season performance.
Reliable in a variety of conditions, the Flex-Tex II Gaiters are breathable, easy to put on and take off, and are just as much at home on a rocky trail as an ice field. The 1"-wide hook and loop front closure is secured by top and bottom shear tabs. Movement-mirroring stretch, a reinforced boot lace hook and the single draw tightening mechanism at the back help to keep the Flex-Tex II Gaiters securely in place. A high-visibility BioThane instep strap provides further stability and can be adjusted to fit over different types of footwear. The low cut design allows Flex-Tex II Gaiters to be worn with hiking boots or heavier winter boots.Sold in pairs, Outdoor Research Flex-Tex II Gaiters are available in Small/Medium (US Men's Sizes 5-8) and Large/XLarge (US Men's 9-12) sizes.

Real Customer Reviews
- Good Gaiters
Likes: These gaiters do the job. They keep the rocks and debri out of my hiking shoes. The fabric is more flexible and comfortable than other gaiters that I’ve owned.
Dislikes: It would be better if another material had been used for the bottom strap.
- A really nice surprise
Likes: they are light weight (i weighed the pair at 5.2 ounces) they do keep light rain and debris off, i used them mostly on rocky terrain 2 times and so far no wear on the colored belt on the bottom.
good for mud, and quickly getting in and out of not to deep river crossings.
they are comfortable, after 7 hours walking I never had an issue
they will be in my pack from now on.
Dislikes: they do have some wear on the be hive pattern, but I'm assuming this will eventually be completely gone and just leave you with the fabric, which i actually think isn't going to be too bad. as it seems to be very sturdy.
if your calves are thin like mine you might really need to stretch that bungie tie out. so its a good idea to tuck in the chock cord that remains after pulling it tight so you don't get cough onto something.
