Since the original straps wore out on the OR gaiters, I've been replacing them with various nylon lines that get worn out after maybe 100 miles. The best replacements have been scavenged nylon farm twine (found often along the Pennine Way last year). I'm hoping the kevlar will last longer. I can get two gaiters out of each shoelace so the extra goes into my first aid bag as a backup. I notice the new OR gaiters have a hard plastic strap but I'm too cheap to buy the new ones.
