The Nut Shell has been constructed out of 420 pack cloth, a super durable and rugged nylon that is ready to say no to rocks, snow, dirt, and more. The front closes with Velcro® to secure the fit with a Cyberian cord lock to cinch the top tight. The 16.5 inch tall gaiter has grommet holes at the bottom for an under-arch boot attachment.

Great for the priceWhen looking for gaiters, these are a decent choice. There are brands that make much better options, but these were good for the price. One complaint I had was the straps on the bottom they came with were very flimsy and didn't seem to hold them in place well. I replaced the string really easily with some better quality small ropes from REI. I end up tucking it in when I wear ascent shoes rather than my boots. The pros: easily replaceable strap; Velcro is very strong; easy on/off; relatively low profile; keeps out snow, mud, and rain very well. Cons: no ventilation (condensation can build up inside), seems to fall down a bit even when tightening them, and tends to bunch up at the bottom over time. Overall, I find them very good for the price. there aren't many options in the gaiter world, so unless you are willing to pay $60-$100 bucks, these are the best option I've found. I've worn them in snow, rain and mud and been kept dry in all.

Does the jobThese are pretty good gaiters, but the rope for underneath your shoe is pretty flimsy - every time I go hiking I find myself messing with it because no matter what I do it comes undone. In hindsight, I wish I would've bought one with the buckle underneath the shoe.
