Likes: I bought these for my daughter for day trips in the shoulder season when we are on snow. They seem durable enough and light weight enough to be used for trips to the coast and for bushwacking up the long valley approaches here in the northwest. The elastic on the bottom is good for the lighter weight hiking boots/shoes...
Dislikes: None at this point. The pair I have I have had for 10 years and they are still going strong with minor repairs.
Likes: I primarily use these over running sneakers and tights for slushy trail walks and runs. They are easy to get on and off and do a good job of keeping snow from creeping up the leg. I find that I can use them over a pair of Columbia snow boots but it is a fairly tight fit. So far the bottom strap has held up well, with just a little fraying along the edges.
Dislikes: With some of the sneakers I wear them with I am not able to use the toe clip (they don't have standard shoe laces) and this can cause some snow to creep up under the gaiter. It doesn't tend to be much of a problem unless I have to venture off the trail into deeper snow.
