The Mountain Hardwear Ascent Gaiter is a durable gaiter for backpacking and mountaineering. Updated this year for a more streamlined fit and comfort, you'll be pleased to find dirt and debris one the ground instead of inside your boot. The 18 inch height secures with elastic and a buckle at the top and the new footstrap is adjustable from either side. The insteps are reinforced with heavy duty fabric to protect against sharp crampons. Finished off with a stretchy backpanel, you're calves will be nice and comfy instead of stiff and restricted. Trudge on.
