Black Diamond Alpine Gaiter Features:
The Black Diamond Alpine Gaiter is a full-height, Gore-Tex gaiter designed for Alpine mountaineering and Scottish winter climbing. This Alpine inspired design is tough and durable and all the component parts have been well designed and tested to stand up to tough long Alpine style route.
I was looking at gaiters which would fit over a telemark touring boot, the Black Diamond Alpine Gaiter XL was the only brand that had all the features needed, good adjustment for the strap around the heel, tight fit around the base of the gaiter and a strong zip plus Velcro fastening with an adjustable strap at the top, just completed a mountain tour on the Kungsleden and the gaiters performed perfectly, would defiantly recommend.
Fits well and stays up on the calf . The only problem I found was the hook to connect to the Boot is the opposite way to other gaiters and is difficult to fit.
