Gaiters are used for a variety of outdoor activities to keep your feet and legs protected and dry. All gaiters cover at least the top of your feet and ankles, while higher ones go all the way up to your knees. Higher ones are typically best for deep snow and very rugged terrain while over-the-ankle or mid-calf gaiters are best for hiking, rain, or less rugged conditions. All gaiters will have adjustment cords at the top so you can make them fit close to your leg. Most are waterproof and ankle gaiters tend to be more lightweight and breathable than mid-calf gaiters. Most will attach to your shoe with an elastic strap that goes around the bottom of your shoe.
