Rab Latok Extreme Gaiter Features:
Designed for mountain use, Rab's Latok Extreme Gaiter is cut to accommodate the higher-volume of mountaineering boots. This highly breathable gaiter users a combination of eVent waterproofing and Stretch Watergate fabric for an excellent balance of protection and flexibility. Secured with a top drawcord and tough, under-foot strap, these gaiters also feature Robic nylon reinforcements around the ankle to resist damage from crampons.
These are what gaiters suppose to be. They are light, waterproof and breatheable. I have used them on a whole day trek in the rain -they kept my boots upper dry, no water overspilling inside and most imporant no sweat on my trousers and leg. Get these both for trekking and mountaineering.
Very light, and breatheable. The fit and design covers the vulnerable part of my boots, and as these are quite high -up to just below my knee - they offer all the protection I need. I wore thse on a hot september day for 8 hrs on the hills, I never felt hot on the legs and when I took them off there was not sweat on my trouser legs. The cost a few pounds more, but they are well worth the money. These are the best gaiters I have ver worn. Recommended ++++
