Two-layer Gore-Tex uppers and Ballistics cloth bottoms make these ideal for glacial travel and ice climbing. Black Diamond GTX FrontPoint gaiters are warm, waterproof and tough as nails in repelling crampon spikes. Secured underfoot with a burly strap, these gaiters are easy to put on or remove using a Velcro closure system and shock cord. Compatible with most any boot or shoe, the GTX FrontPoint gaiter is designed for snowy, wet conditions.
My husband had a pair of these that lasted him more than 15 years! He loved them so much I got him another pair for the Holiday and he's as in love as he was with the original pair! They are super breathable and he wears them hiking and ice climbing mainly. He's 5'9" and they are a great height for him and stand nice and tall on his shins. They are waterproof and are fantastic at keeping his legs warmer on a cold/blustery day. When this pair bites the dust 15+ years from now, we'll be getting him another of this exact pair!
