        Comments about OUTDOOR RESEARCH Men's Verglas Gaiters:

        I bought these for a winter, alpine climb up Mt. Washington. With snow drifts up to my thighs and waist, snow never got into my boots. Before and after the climb, they were easy to get on and off. I also found that the Verglas gaiters were the "Goldilocks" of all the Outdoor Research gaiter models. I didn't feel like the Rocky Mountain gaiters were heavy duty enough for an alpine ascent, but the Crocodiles just seemed too heavy, bulky, and slow. The Verglas were just perfect. The only one, small negative I found was that the snap/clasp at the top of the gaiter kept coming undone during the climb, and I had some trouble closing it with a lack of dexterity that heavy gloves create. But this was my very first time using them, so perhaps they just need to get broken in a bit first before the snaps/clasps completely adjust to holding in a closed position.

        Not a bad gaitor.

        • Loose At The Top

        Best Uses

          Comments about OUTDOOR RESEARCH Men's Verglas Gaiters:

          I'm using these gaiters for recreational snowshoeing
          They didn't stay attached too well on the front boot hook
          The snowshoe strap kept them in place though
          Shed the wet snow as intended
          A little loose at the top towards my knee, but I can attribute that to my skinny legs and one layer of pants worn.. I believe these gaiters are designed for more alpine use; using with heavier clothing.
          All around a good product

                    I have used these twice this winter. I am more than happy that no snow is getting up my pant leg and making my feet wet or legs cold. They keep my feet, ankle and calves warm by compressing the material against your body. I am able to wear crampons or snow shoes with these which is a big plus. The only negative side I can find to wearing these is only if your pants are baggy they may be hard to put on at first but you will get the application process down in no time.

                      Comments about OUTDOOR RESEARCH Men's Verglas Gaiters:

                      I have now purchased two pairs of these gaiters--one for myself and one for my boyfriend. Mine have gotten very heavy use the past few winters, since I do a lot of winter hiking. They have kept my feet and legs dry every single time I have used them. They have been invaluable this season for everyday wear, since we have had numerous blizzards in the Boston area and have several feet of snow on the ground. I wear them while shoveling, when wading through snowdrifts to get to my bulkhead or birdfeeders, and when walking my dog in the messy streets.
