      Backpacking Background: I have been an avid Backpacker for 7years. My trips range from day hikes to week long trips.I backpack 12 months out of the year in all weather conditions.  I prefer extended trips into the Colorado high country during the summer and lower altitude Colorado Desert  trips in the winter. I have also done trips in Montana, Idaho,Washington and Utah. My day hikes consist of peak bagging or  rough,steep bushwacks .  I consider myself to be an ultra light Backpacker that makes additional sacrifices for comfort.

      FIELD USE
       

      I have owned this pair of  gaiters since 2009 . I bought them to keep snow and debris out of my boots while hiking.I put them on when i expect to be hiking through snow or thick wet brush.In cold weather the gaiters provide an extra layer of insulation for my ankles .I use these gaiters for snowy hikes in Colorado Sangre De Cristo mountains in fall, winter and spring months.These are a great addition to my winter gear for Snowshoeing . I estimate i have used these 100+ times  and they are still in great shape.
       
      SUMMARY
       
      These gaiters are great.They keep snow and trail debris out of my boots.The gaiters  protect my shins from minor cuts and scrapes while walking through thick brush.Gaiters also provide an extra layer of insulation in colder temperatures.I am very pleased with the way these Gaiters have held up over the years.
       
      THINGS I LIKE
       
      An excellent waterproof layer from the knee down.
      Easy to use. Step into the strap,wrap around leg then velcro the front shut.
      Very durable.
      Extra protection from cuts and scrapes on my legs.
      Keeps snow and debris out .
      Reasonable price.
      The Hypalon heel strap is really durable.
       
      THINGS I DON'T LIKE
       
      The top cam buckle is kind of useless for sealing the top of the gaiter.
      The heel strap dose not stay in the loop so it sticks out and flops around while i hike.This is a minor annoyance that i got used to.
      The fabric is not very breathable,light condensation builds up on the inside when used in warm temperatures.

        PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL IN FULL. IT IS MOST IMPORTANT!

        Thanks for your Owner's Review. It has been added to the Owner Review Queue and will be picked up by an Edit Moderator soon. If you are new to BackpackGearTest.org, welcome to the community! The Editors will work with you, within their own time constraints, to get your first two Owner Reviews approved and upload in a timely manner. Do not worry if nothing happens with it for several days. All our Editors are volunteers and your report will be subject to an official edit within fourteen days. If you have not had a response from an Edit Moderator via the Yahoo Groups list within this timeframe, please let me know directly at jdeben(at)hotmail.com

        To assist in this process, if this is your first Owner Review we ask that you post only ONE Owner Review for edit at a time. Our experience is that it is more efficient for both the Editors and
        yourself, if you post your first review, have it edited, approved and uploaded before you post your second and subsequent reviews.

        Once your first two Owner Reviews have been approved and you have submitted your Tester Agreement you will be eligible to start applying for Tests. If you'd like more assistance or guidance with the process you can request a mentor by sending an email to Jenn K., the mentor coordinator, at mentor (at) backpackgeartest.org.

        You may receive edits or comments from other members of the group. These edits and comments, while not official, should be considered carefully, and if you find them substantial, revise and re-post your review. Incorporating member edits and re-submitting to the list
        will usually result in a better review, as well as making things easier for the official Editor. Please put REVISED in the subject line of your re-submitted review if you take this route or make any
        changes to your review BEFORE the review has been taken by an Edit Moderator.

        Additionally, it is important for you to monitor the Yahoo Groups list to keep track of the progress of your Owner Review. Once an Editor has taken your OR and made the necessary edits they will post their comments to the list with EDIT in the subject line. Once you have incorporated these edits into your review please use REPOST in the subject line. When your OR has been approved by the Editor they will use APPROVED in the subject line.

        If you'd like to keep track of the progress of your OR while it's in the edit queue, the entire Owner Review Queue is posted to this yahoo group list on either Thursdays or Fridays.

        If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask via the list or contact me directly.
