A tough, reliable gaiter that is well designed and ideal for fast and light trips. They provide plenty of protection with stretch and comfort making them great for real adventures.
Our classic original Trail Gaiter comes in one size, features an underfoot strap, hook and loop rear fixing system and a front hook. An excellent adjustable gaiter to protect from stones, mud, gravel, scree etc.
Raidlight's Trail Gaiters are a much more significant gaiter than expected for running. These fit more with fastpacking than running for me. I have used them for both but found that they excel when going fast and light walking and backpacking. They felt a bit too big and cumbersome while running.
The padding around the ankles provides a good amount of protection while the mix in materials around the foot gives comfort and stretch while doing a very good job of keeping debris and water out. The front section repels water well but these are certainly not waterproof. The straps under the foot are pretty robust and do a great job of keeping the gaiter in place no matter what you're doing.
