These gaiters are great. Keep water, snow, dirt and everything out of your boots. I have seen people having issues with sizing. I’m 6’3 and 205 and I ended up purchasing the ML and they fit fine with plenty of room to spare. I wear a size 12 boot as well. These are slighty on the louder side but they shouldnt be considered an early season gaiter. These are much better suited to a snowy or wet season, as is mentioned in the name stormfront. All in all these are a reat piece that will keep your feet warm and dry all day

Ive been using these gaiters heavily for the past several years in SE Alaska and Idaho. The fit and material is out standing. And I really like the buckle-less bottom strap design. I have two issues with them, the stitching on the bottom needs to be more heavy duty (I’ve had to restitch the bottom around the strap, ended up using braided fishing line). Secondly, the strap would be better if it started on the outside on the bottom, then went inside through a slit to keep the bottom from getting flared out and chafed in snow.

Bought these right before my '21 WY antelope and deer hunt. Day 1 was cold and rainy. Days 4 & 5 were blizzard conditions. Day 6 had snow piled up to 16+ inches in spots. These gaiters performed flawlessly from crawling for pronghorn to trudging through snow.

I'm typically a big fan of Sitka products. The Stormfront Gaiters have been on my bucket list for a while and I finally made the purchase. Unfortunately, after arriving I found the gaiters did not meet my expectations for a couple of reasons and they will be returned. My biggest concern is the noise......these things are noisy......real NOISY; Walking around in these things sounded like I had plastic garbage bags over my boots. As an archery hunter, I would never get close to game wearing these things. They may work fine for modern weapon or still hunters where you have a lot more distance between yourself and the game. I was also disappointed with the way the gaiters cinched down around the calf muscles. The gaiters lack a quick release mechanism, so you have to completely disconnect and reconnect the straps each time. Not a big deal, but I've never owned a pair of gaiters that did not come with a quick disconnect around the calf. Beyond that, the quality and craftsmanship was good and what you would expect from Sitka products.

Gaiters were awesome for a couple seasons, they're remarkably waterproof and fit great. Never had a problem with them being noisy or overheating in them. My gripe with these gaiters and what I think holds them back from being a top competitor is that the material of the band under the boot and the durability of the material on the outside. I noticed after a few uses the band under the boot started to cut very easily and I need to cover it with some tape, and for the material outside of the gaiter, it also cut when going through brush with it. Eventually they became worn and I had to get different gaiters. Other than that, they're great gaiters, recommend them for someone that lives in an area that isn't too rocky or full of sharp brush.

I own these and have hunted with them for a season in Idaho.

Durable, Waterproof as Heck

Noisy, hot

Comments: I hunt in Idaho over usually steep and dry terrain. These gaiters are quite noisy and really very warm. They do not breathe, and even in 15f weather you get enough condensation that your pants will get wet. In dry terrain they are very noisy on brush. Also the velcro closure system is very, very noisy if you decide you want to take them off when glassing.

Appropriate Use: These are probably best for wet or snow conditions. In snow the camo is not appropriate, so...

I just finished a Colorado mule deer hunt. We trekked through scrub oaks, briars, and everything else that can snag lower coveralls and climbing boots. These did fantastic. They even kept the snow out when we went to higher elevations. The lace hook, lower snap, and shin buckle all kept them in the exact place for comfort. These are tough gators. Buy them, use them and you’ll love them.

I wont speak a lot to the waterproofing aspect because this is one of the highest end options on the market. I promise it will keep you dry and debris free regardless the terrain. They all work. But these work the best.

This review is going to address the buyer that is on the fence about spending the money on these gaiters versus a competitors cheaper alternative. I was that guy. This is my second gaiter purchase in a year. I run my gear pretty hard and put it through the wringer. The last pair I purchased were Kuiu Yukon gaiters which were fine but held the same design flaws as almost all the other high end options. These stormfront gaiters fixed almost all of those issues and that to me is why it is worth the extra investment, because sooner or later those lower end components will fail, and you will be faced with the same dilemma you are in now.

The button snap closure was the first to fail on both of the yukon gaiters, followed by the metal buckle adjustment from being smashed against rocks and rendered unusable. Finally the sil-nylon straps delaminated and lost most of their integrity. They looked a mess after just one year of use.

The Sitka gaiters use a streamlined buckle-less strap system which eliminates that issue altogether. The ladder lock design is incredibly efficient and rigid. The snap closure buttons are also much better integrated into the meat of the gaiter ensuring a much more secure hold and the potential of failure is far less. I believe they use the same foot strap material so that quality is to be determined. These gaiters are also reinforced in the high-wear areas but somehow maintain an even lighter weight than other gaiters while still being one of the most rigid and durable feeling options. Even the velcro closure is a much higher quality. You are paying for higher end build components and that will be worth every penny to you once in the field.

Do yourself a favor and buy once, cry once. These are the most badass gaiters on the market.

What an awesome product! I used these for a 5 day Elk hunt in Colorado. The terrain included snow, ice, creek bottoms, grass, mud, and everything else Mother Nature could throw at us. The stormfront gaiter performed well in every condition.

The fit was perfect as I ordered the Medium to fit over my size 10 Danner Mountain 600 boots, with room if I chose to adjust to a thicker boot. Feet stayed dry, and not a single piece of debris found its way into my boot. I will never go on a trip without these.

I heard on a podcast that one user thought the gortex material was loud, but that was not my experience. It was a non issue when we stocked our animals, including tagging out. Proof is in the pudding. Grab yourself a repair.

Fantastic product!! Wore on them on a recent elk hunt and couldn’t be happier with them. The fit was great - no sliding around. We had misty rain and tall grass to walk through and these kept me completely dry. Obviously some minor heat retention being waterproof but it was minor as they still managed to breathe well. These will always either be on my feet or in my pack whenever I head out.
