Excellent product!,
December 1, 2014
By: Tropo
from Asheville, NC
"My wife and I each bought a pair of these gaiters to wear while working on our property in North Carolina. We got tired of getting our jeans snagged on the briars that are all over our place...now we can blaze right thru the worst of them without getting stuck. We also have quite a few snakes in our area so it is nice to have a little peace of mind wearing these gaiters knowing that we have some awesome protection on our legs. The adjustable fit ensured that the gaiters were comfortable and secure without being constraining. We wore them for 4 hours the first day we got them and they were worth every penny! A definite must if you're tromping around in heavy brush, briars or in snake country!"

"Light weight - Easy to use - Comfortable - Durable. Moisture buildup between clothing but small sacrifice to avoid snake bite. Held up great in thick cover, rain & mud."

"These gaiters are by far the best for bird hunting. They are light, adjustable and very comfortable. I will have to have a set of chaps also. Excellent performance at a reasonable price."

Snake gaiters,
October 4, 2013
By: anoutdoorsman
from Carlisle, PA
"These are very light weight, easy to use, and comfortable; but they are also very expensive. They are, however, less constrictive than snake-proof boots and, hence, more comfortable. I particularly like the two-sided choice of patterns."

Exceeds the reviews,
July 25, 2013
from Salem, VA
"I bought these to protect me from snakebite in the hot summer months when I wet-wade. They are as light as a feather, and dry very fast. I've never had to unzip them as my foot slides thru easily. The drawstring at the top is a nice feature but takes some getting used to. I wear these with wading shoes that are not high tops and have not had any problem with them "riding" up over the boot and exposing my ankles. Great product."

Very nice...a must buy,
September 25, 2012
By: Ricker1187

"These are very nice indeed. Easy to put on, flexible, and stay where you want them. In my mind they are a must buy if you hunt anywhere snakes are. Put it this way…one bite from a Rattler (I live in Colorado) is about $197,000 in medical bills (no joke, it happened at an outdoor range here)…what does that make the ROI for these Gaiters? Plus, these are made to last a life time. 5 stars! I won’t upland hunt without them now unless it is snowing."

Great product,
September 28, 2011
By: brooker1966
from Jacksonville, FL
"I have worn these Turtle Skin Gaiters hunting, hiking and trail motorbike riding for three years. They fit well, are light weight, flexible, comfortable to the point you forget you have them on, reasonably cool, are easy to put on, they stay put and easy to clean as you just wash them in the washing machine and hang them to dry. I am very satisfied with this product, so much so I bought this product as a gift for several others."
