tactical leg gaiters You Should Consider

I got the Tactical Leg Gaiters from Gaitest. com. I’ve been using them for hiking and backpacking for a few years and have been very happy with them. Gaitest. com is a website started by a couple of guys who have a lot of hiking experience. They have a ton of different gaiters for different conditions and various levels of price. I’ve been buying from them for years and have never had any problems. They have a 30-day return policy, which is great. Gaitest does not provide free shipping, but does offer free return shipping, so the overall cost is still pretty low. Things I like about the Tactical Leg Gaiters from Gaitest. com

Looks good and performs well. Waterproof (but not Gore-Tex). Ventilation (but not breathability). Things I don’t like about the Tactical Leg Gaiters from Gaitest.

They do not come with a stuff sack, which is a bit of a bummer. They are a bit more difficult to put on and take off, but I’ve gotten used to it. They are pretty bulky, which can be a problem if you’re packing very light. How I use the tactical leg gaiters
As I mentioned, I use these gaiters for hiking and backpacking. I take them on shorter day hikes, as well as multi-day trips. I’ve used them in the mountains and the desert, in rain and wind, and in snow. They’ve been through it all and have held up well. My preferred hiking terrain is rocky, root-strewn trails. I like to do my hiking with trekking poles to help stabilize my balance, and I also like to use a hip belt for extra support. I take these gaiters with me on hikes that have loose dirt and rocks, as well as hikes that are very steep and rocky. When I’m hiking with my trekking poles, I always wear these gaiters with the leg straps loosened. This helps distribute the weight more evenly across my hips, and also helps protect my shins from being scraped by the pole shafts.
