The original do-it-all gaiter of mountaineers, backcountry skiers, and off-trail adventurers, the Outdoor Research Womens Crocodiles Gaiters are designed for ladies who handle anything. Designed specifically for women, these gaiters feature increased volume in the calf and a shorter overall length. The durable Taslan Gore-Tex leg section, much like the Crocodile Gaiters namesake, creates an impenetrable hide-like shield against snow, rocks and every hikers bane, the thorny Devils Club. The 1000d Cordura boot section, lined with burly, coated 8 oz. packcloth, resists the abuses dealt from ski edges, crampons and general wear. The water-resistant coating on the packcloth faces the Cordura layer, thereby protecting the coating from boot abrasion and insuring a much longer life for these gaiters. A 2in-wide hook-and-loop front closure offers enough range to accommodate leather and plastic boots as well as light or heavy insulating layers.
