If you are keen on hikes and other outdoor activities in extreme weather conditions, the extra layer of protection that gaiters give will help keep your outing a challenging adventure rather than a painful sufferfest. While waterproof hiking boots or ski boots will provide a significant amount of protection, gaiters work in tandem with your boots to protect the little nooks and crannies that are vulnerable to being encroached by abrasive environments or sneaky drops of rain or snow – like the top of the boot.
Whether snow, rain or overgrown trails are the terrain du jour, in "Gandrs" storesyou will find different types of gaiters that excel for different activities, each with different features. These gaiters run from the bottom of your foot to mid-calf and are made of sturdy weather-resistant materials. Gaiter design and structure works well to protect your foot and lower leg from deep snow, wet underbrush or debris that you can pick up while hiking, skiing or mountaineering. Also available are low gaiters – they reach to about ankle height and are designed for less extreme conditions.
Most gaiters are also equipped with a strap that fits over the instep of your boot or shoe or lace hook that holds the gaiter in place; a top closure that cinches or clips tight to seal the upper half of the gaiter; and some sort of entry system.
Active leisure equipment stores "Gandrs" provides you with products by such renowned brands as Fjallraven, Millet, Pinguin, Vaude, Travelsafe, VJ and Lafuma; their gaiters will keep your legs and feet dry and safe during most types of outdoor activities, especially hiking.
