Topic - Gaiters

KellyKettle - on 27 Dec 2012
I've been using yeti gaiters for ages now, and they work well enough that I never really think about them... but, given that I'm wearing Buffalo gear most of the time, and softshell almost always, it seems a nonsense to put gortex over that and negate the breathablity of my clothing from the knee down.

So I'm looking for recommendations for short or shortish gaiters to seal the gap between my boots and trousers from snow and at least resist the ingress of water.

I've been looking at the Glacier Gaiter from Berghaus, but I'm not totally sure that would extend far enough to even reach the top of my cumbre's and might not have the wiggle room needed to stop my trouser legs slipping out. The BD Talus looks a bit better position wise, but doesn't seem to secure to the boot particular firmly.
