Great Product
January 03, 2011

5'2" petite - small fits perfect. pleased with comfort and quality of fit. high quality materials. simple and light to wear. perfect for ice climbing and glacier trekking as I often snag my crampons on baggy pants, which can be hazardous to safety! this product is perfect for reducing crampon snags. would recommend to all mountaineering friends.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value

Excellent product
February 20, 2007

Super nice, love the OR women's gear. I used the size chart and ordered a medium, but they are a little too baggy. I am about 5 feet tall and the height was OK but cannot cinch them tight enough at top. I am going to try a small. Excellent service from Altrec!

Just as Advertised

Appear to be very good quality. Haven't used them yet. Replaceable strap is a nice feature. Women's sizing is a nice option. That should about cover it.

Pros: Great design, Build quality

Really Durable
December 30, 2010

I really like these gaiters they're really durable and easy to get on and off. The gortex upper part definitly prevents my pants from getting wet in the snow. I originally bought the OR Women's Verglas Gaiter, but returned them to get the Womens Crocodile Gaiter because I liked the idea of being able to replace the strap that goes under the boot instead of having to buy a whole other pair. I'm about 5' 7'' size 8 1/2 shoe and the size M comes up to about an inch below my knee, it fits well around my leg with pants or shorts.

Pros: Great design, Lasts forever, Ease of use

slightly dissappointed
April 10, 2011

I bought these gaiters after reading many positive reviews. However, I am slightly dissapointed. The buckles of the straps started rusting after only a couple of uses. I don't understand why they're made from material that can rust - obviously gaiters are getting wet. Also, I got a medium size to fit the gaiters over winter hiking boots. They are too wide below the knee but just alright around the ankle. Maybe I should have bought the small. I also don't trust that the velcro will last very long, it does look sturdy but the stitching is coming off already a bit. These gaiters are supposed to be the most durable on the market - let's see...they do look good though and so far do they job.

Pros: Great design, Performance, Cons: Cost

Great product!
October 06, 2004

After trying on numerous gaiters sized for men it was a joy to put on a pair that were sized for a woman's leg. No more baggy and too long gaiters! I still had a little extra width. However, given the opportunity, I'd might buy a small rather than medium. Gaiters need more specs, not just S,M, and L! How about length and max and min circumference. I wore my new gaiters on a 60ish rainy day on the West Highland Way. Not only did they keep mud out of my shoes and off my pants, but my legs didn't sweat buckets.

Very satisfied.
December 27, 2004

This was my first pair of gaiters. So I wanted something I would get a lot of use out of and have for many years. The first time I used them I was satisfied with the materials and workmanship, they are very well made. It was worth the extra money I spent.


Good Winter Gaiter
April 25, 2010

These work great for winter outdoor sports. I used them snowshoeing and hiking in the snow. I got a Medium - I'm 5'-6" and size 8 shoe. They come up to just below my knee. They fit over snow pants, but if you only plan to use them with a thin pant layer the medium might be too big. OR makes great products and they have great warranties too. I would recommend spending the extra couple of bucks to get OR gear.
