Florence, South Carolina USA
Date: 20 November 2012
I used to backpack in college a zillion years ago and just in the last few years have backpacked some private trails in Tennessee, Missouri and most recently South Carolina. I have been an avid car-camper for twelve years and I have kayak/canoe camped for five years, both in South Carolina, Tennessee, Missouri and Arkansas. I use a lot of the same equipment for both. I hike hilly/rocky trails especially in Missouri (my home state) and Arkansas. I live in South Carolina and am checking out the terrain here with my nineteen year-old son.
I hike and camp a lot in South Carolina. I am the faculty sponsor for a university camping club and we try to get out once per month. We tend to camp and hike up to 100 miles from Florence, SC. I have a pair of boots that I use primarily in the winter that I would test these gaiters with. I have another pair of gaiters that I use all the time, but they make my legs sweat in warm weather and they fall down to my ankles all the time. I'd like to see how breathable these are. I'll also test for wear, waterproof-ness, comfort, fit, will they retain their elasticity and STAY UP.
