Good option to start with
I have been using these gaiters for a good season of hikes and they have seen all sorts of terrains, I thought I'd share my feedback. When you buy them try to bring the shoes you'll wear with you, I made the mistake to buy them too big and they tend not to fit well around the bottom of my boots and there is no way to adjust that. They offer a reasonable cover when crossing rivers(better if they were tighter). They are great for hikes in wet bush or protection when walking up or down a scree. The cover of the Velcro strap detached pretty quickly but the Velcro is still holding up well. The bottom strap is keeping up very well, only few scratches and you can change it if it breaks. Overall a good product. Could be better if bottom size was adjustable and material slightly lighter to be comfortably wearable for 4 seasons(I still wear them all the time, they just get hot after a long day hiking).
