Features & Benefits

FPO
Polyester Knit Face

Quiet knit face fabric muffles the sounds of abrasion from grass and brush.

Durable Water Repellent Finish

The DWR finish resists light precipitation and prevents the face fabric from wetting out.

Low-Profile Silhouette

A contoured silhouette maintains a low profile over boots.

Replaceable Strap System

Instead of buckles, we’ve developed an innovative cable strap system that moves freely and quietly through dense brush and scrub.

Work great but I ordered the smaller pair. I will be ordering the larger pair soon. I ware them mostly in western oregon in the wet part of the state. I wish I would have started using gaiters sooner. I have had zero problems so far. Thank you Sitka.

I'm very disappointed with the gaiters they will not stay hooked to the boot laces. The cord at the top of the gaiters cuts off circulation and hurts. I have big calves and these do not work well at all. I am a guide and I will not recommend this product to anyone. I have a lot of your products and I am very satisfied with them. I tell everyone how great they are but the gaiters fail every possible way they can. I sorry but I am very dissatisfied. I would rate them lower but you don't have negative stars.

Very disappointing!!! For the cost of these gaiters I was expecting a superior product. I have two complete Sitka outfits so I love their products but these gaiters I have to say are junk. First, They refuse to stay up over the calf so they end up around my ankles in a clump. Hunting in the Pacific Northwest there are a lot of berry runners etc. a simple thorn for a runner pulls them down. The elastic has to be so tight that is cuts into my leg and the toggle for adjusting the elastic in turn digs in to my leg. 2. The zipper jams at times forcing me to remove my boot and work the zipper to get it off my boot. Love Sitka products but these are a fail. $169 Canadian dollars down the drain....I'd return the, if I could but they are used so can't be returned.

The design seems fine and quality is good but they are way too short only coming to mid calf which makes them fall down around ankle. I had to tighten them so tight to keep them up that it cut off circulation.

Poorly constructed. Poor fit. Will not stay fastened. Sitka generally has bomb proof products, very disappointed in these gaiters.
