The General Service gaiters are no longer issued, but some time ago they were an essential part of cold/wet weather footwear in the British Army. They were eventually replaced by Gore-Tex gaiters. These work quite well even today, and the green colour goes well with most clothes.

Zipper closure, tough rubber and steel wire understraps, drawcords on top, the material is thick cotton duck, which has been, at some point, treated with some manner of waterproofing agent. We can't promise these are waterproof anymore, but at least they won't get soaked immediately. Otherwise, compared to membranes, cotton breathes way better and is superior in terms of durability. You can of course treat these again with spray-on solutions or fabric wax if 100% waterproofness is required.

Size info

Two lengths: Standard and Long. If you see yourself as taller than most (like over 180 cm), take Long, otherwise Standard is your size. The differences in the lengths are pretty minimal, only a few centimeters. No different widths, maximum calf circumference is about 40 cm. Will fit most normal-sized people - fanatical cyclists, epic bodybuilders and others with mega athletic calves will have to pass. We suggest measuring before buying.

Used British army stuff

In used but serviceable condition. The fabric may be faded at places, but there's nothing wrong with these.
