    Outdoor research crocodiles are tried and true. I've had a pair for over 10 years. Can't go wrong with them. That being said I now have the First lite brambler gaiters and I really like the material and warmth they provide as well

    I have the Sitka gaiters! I love them. I wear them all the time in the woods regardless of conditions. Have held up great and really performed great for me!

    OR crocs...
    For many hunters the stigma of being unsuccessful has become so unbearable that the satisfaction of the hunt itself has become lost...

    I've never owned gaiters until this past fall. Did some research, and opted for a pair of Kuiu's.

    I like them very much. Can't compare them to other brands, but they did the job for me.

    I've had a pair of Cabelas gaiters with the Goretex liners for about 10 years now and they are great. My brother got a pair of Kennetek gaiters last year and the also worked great. One thing I noticed is that they were not as quiet when walking through brush.
    Did the high end gaiters work better? I think they were pretty much the same for a big difference in price.
    When all the trees have been cut down, when all the animals have been hunted, when all the waters are polluted, when all the air is unsafe to breathe, only then will you discover you cannot eat money.
