    I run Kennetrek. I have 19.5" calves and some of the other brands are to tight for me. Rokslide had a thread on this and the guys with bigger calves mostly liked Kennetrek.

    Caution on the Kenetrek, the strap isn't sewed to the gait or very well. I had mine fail badly in BC. I went to KUIU and I'm very impressed with them. They fit better and are taller!

    I have the first lite gators. I have the largest size the make, and can't get them over a winter boot, with thinner wool pants. There fine over a uninsulated boot, with light pants. They are great, other than the size on the bigger boots.

    I have used a variety of OR gaiters for hunting, hiking, backcountry skiing, and snowshoeing. They work well. I used a pair of KUIU this past winter hunting and they seemed quieter. I am not sure if that is because of the material or if it is because they are more form-fitting than the ORs. Since the KUIUs are new to me, I don’t know how long they will last. The ORs have held up well for years.

    Have owned the same pair of OR gaiters for the past ten years and they have held up great. I highly recommend them.
    DIY Public land Elk hunts are not for everyone but everyone should try it at least once in their lifetime. And for all those younger guys that say I don't have the time, I don't have the money, I'm out of shape or I don't have the experience to do a trip. I only have a few things to say. Take the time to make a experience, Save the money to make the trip, Get in shape so you will enjoy the hunt and the only way to get the experience is to go and make it happen. Hunt on Mark!!
