I just wore out my first pair.....after a few years of hard use (and some abuse). An absolute must have if you're busting brush on horseback before ascending a mountain for sheep or goats. These gaiters protect your legs like a thin coat of armor. They do what they're designed complaints. I'm back online for replacements!

After two seasons on the Stormfront Gaiter in Kodiak, AK I can say they're tough, but there is much room for improvement. Pros: Hypalon is bulletproof, laces hook works very well at keeping the gaiter in place. Upper material is lightweight and flexible. Cons: Hypalon does not allow for much flexibility and you definitely know you have them on. Cinch band on top would not stay tight so after getting it adjusted I tied a knot in it to prevent slip. I do have skinny legs making the fit a bit baggy. When frozen the zipper is a challenge. Overall the Stormfront Gaiter works as advertised, but IMO they're over engineered.

These gaiters are easy to put on and wear, provide excellent protection against the elements, and will keep you dry. They are noisy so good judgement must be used if you are stalking or otherwise need to be stealthy and unheard. IF you need to adjust the stirrup, be prepared with a lot of patience, needle-nose pliers, and be able to spend at least 3 minutes per stirrup. The inside hook definitely stays inside the stirrup hole, a testament to Sitka's quality made products. It is difficult to remove the strap from the hook and even more difficult to put it back inside a new stirrup hole, which is where the pliers came in handy for both needs. On a recent hunt, I wore them over my Ascent pants which kept the pants completely dry from the morning dew and rain-drenched grass. During heavy downpours, the Cloudburst pants over top of this setup kept me bone dry!

Just got back from a 7 day horseback trip in the Tetons. We rode through snow, rain, mud, wind, and everything else you can imagine. These things literally saved my trip. Had a camera guy along and within an hour of riding in the snow, his socks and feet were soaked and freezing. Sitting in the saddle for extended periods of time caused his pants to ride up, allowing the snow to fall into his boots as it fell off of the willow marshes we were riding through. We had to stop twice to dry him out. These things kept my feed dry while riding and walking. Kept mud off my boots, and performed perfectly. One of those products you don't truly appreciate until it saves you. Love them.

These things are legit. Tough as nails. I wear a size 13 boot and the l/xl fight perfectly. Some say there is a noise issue with these, but I don't have that issue at all. Wore them after a slight rain on an archery elk hunt and they were just as quite as my ascent pants.
