Anyone ever use these

Looking to pickup a new pair of gaiters, and these caught my eyes.
They only carry them in the UK, so I don't have any experience with the brand.
I just hate wearing rubber boots, and using gaiters lets me stay in a comfortable hunting boot.

TexasRed,


I don't have experience with that brand but I am a huge fan of FirstLite out of Idaho.

My buddies use Kenetrek. I am not sure which model. I don't like rubber boots either.

they seem very pricey! I have a set of waxed barbour ones, a snip at a quarter of the price.

I was trying to stay away from Velcro, if possible. I also dislike anything that's noisy in the field. I walk in wild rose that's knee high, to flush birds out. A lot of material will hangup on it, so most anything with nylon in it won't work. I wish Filson made womens gaiters, as I don't care for chaps. The only turtle skin gaiters I found are 1 size fits all, and mens. So I doubt they would fit.

I will check on the ones you mentioned.
My husband says I could find things easier, if I wasn't so dang picky.

Those just might work.

There is only a $30 difference in price, due to shipping cost of the Barbour.

How well does the webbing strap hold up on them?

It's the underneath strap I was referring to.
