A nostalgic nod to Outdoor Research’s early years, Retro Crocodiles apply throwback colors and logo treatments to the award-winning gaiters. A fitted design and durable, waterproof construction make them trustworthy companions for extreme adventures.
The leg sections of the gaiters are made of waterproof, breathable 70D GORE-TEX fabric while the workhorse boot section is constructed of 1000D Cordura line with pack cloth. The top closures employ webbing and cam buckles to secure the gaiter under the knee. Double-needle stitching on the front 2" wide hook/loop closure offers easy on/off and increases long-wear durability. A Shear tab secures the front closure at the toe of the boot and keeps it from catching on trail debris or crusty snow and ice. The triple-bar tacked instep strap and buckle system provides adjustability so the gaiters can be worn over hiking boots, standard mountaineering boots, or plastic mountaineering boots.
