Excellent gaiters for an insane price - who the hell decided to get rid of these for this cheap!? Swiss army surplus.

Long gaiters made mostly of rubberized wool with heavy duty rubber reinforcing where necessary. Donning these is pretty simple; close the zipper, pull the rubber strap under the boot, secure the front hook and tie the strings at the top of the gaiter. That's it, you're ready to (st)roll. Pass one string through the zipper puller to avoid jingling.

For the non-zippered model: pull them on, stick your boots on, pull the rubber strap under the boot, secure the front hook and tie the strings at the top of the gaiter.

All buckles & such are riveted on, and the rubber is very tough. Zippers are made by RiRi, a veteran manufacturer which made zippers for the Third Reich once upon a time.

One size fits most: circumference at the top is 46 cm for the zippered model and 44 cm without a zipper.

Swiss army surplus

Used but intact and perfectly serviceable.

Kuivan polkutassuttelun ja kumisaapaskelin väliin erittäin passelit värkit. Pitävät housunpuntit kuivina ja puhtaina.

Mine arrived looking new or at least used very little. Bought the zip type. Cannot fault these at all except to me the strap that runs under your boot looks a little plasticy to me. Maybe it is leather but am not sure.

Awesome gaiters at a crazy price! I've been using mine breaking trail cross-country skiing and snowshoeing and find these gaiters to be highly water resistant/repellant and can handle any brambles or thorn bushes with no ripping or tearing. I bought the zipperless version as I didn't want a big potential leak spot so, yes, it is easier to put these on over my pants, first, and then put on my boots and fasten to the boot lace. This will take a little getting used to if you've been using modern, velcro fastening gaiters but, it's not a hassle.

Only the non zippered variety was available when I purchased mine. Put these on only before your boots. They are high quality and well made. Mine came as new with some storage marks perhaps, but for military surplus, I say new. I wish I had the zippered model, but I have the German Flecktarn ones with velcro, so no biggie. The material they are made of is old school awesomeness. I can see someone wearing these hunting long after I am dead. Leather, wool and super durable feeling. I freakin' love Varusteleka!

Ei näitä nyt voi oikein suositella. Ensimmäinen päivän käytön jälkeen molemmat soljet repesivät ja toisen päivän käytön jälkeen toisen säärystimen alareunaan repesi parin sentin reikä. Lumisessa metsässä kävellessä pitävät sääret kuivana parin tunnin ajan, mutta sen jälkeen päästävät veden läpi. Ja lisättäneen, että saamani pari oli käyttämätön.

Ei pahaa sanaa, mutta vaikka tuli jo muutama vuosi sitten ostetuksi, ei pari ole nähnyt kovinkaan paljoa käyttöä. Suomessa on melkein aina tilanne, että jos varsikenkä ei riitä kannattaa laittaa kumisaappaat. Ovat sen verran painavat, että ei tule myöskään otetuksi varuiksi reppuun.

Vähäisestä käytöstä huolimatta toisesta säärystimestä jalan ali tulevan remmin liimaukset pettivät ja siinä heiluu nyt kaksi ohuempaa remmiä. Kylmässä vähän ahdistaa yrittää pujotella soljen piikki molempien läpi. Säärystimien ajatus kuitenkin kiehtoo, joten käytän tuota lähiaikoina suutarilla. Rakenne on sen verran yksinkertainen, että osaava suutari vaihtanee koko remelin.

En oikein näe, että käyttäisin näin raskaita säärystimiä lämpöisemmillä keleillä, toisaalta tosiaan loskakelissä ei ihan riitä. Huomasin kuitenkin hyviksi mm. lumikenkien kanssa ja syyspyöräilyssä.

Suosittelen siis varauksella: hinta on kohdillaan ja jos ei kuvittele saavansa kevyitä vaellus-sadelahkeita saa rahoilleen myös vastinetta.

Used these zippered gaiters while snowshoeing, and they did what they were designed to do. They kept the snow out of my 7" high boots, even when I sunk in the snow up to my mid thigh, not 1 snow flake made it into my boots. They will also do a good job at protecting your pants while walking through some thick bush in the warmer months too.

The first pair had seen some use or were maybe pretty old. The material was stiff and the rubber strap had split on both. I informed customer support and they friendly as they were sent another pair to me, letting me keep the pair I had already bought also. The other pair I received were in better condition, more elastic and with intact straps. These gaiters provide excellent protection against the elements and I am happy to have them!

Have bought two pairs: one with and one without zippers. The pair without zippers had seen some use and had some patches but the pair with zippers were brand new. A bargain in any case.

Brand new, even the leather smelled nice. Made in 1991 if the markings are anything to go by.
Room enough for even bulky boots like the german KS2005.
Reached just up to my knee, perfect for wading through wet grass while foraging.

The price recently jumped from $9.99 to $14.99, but these are still a pretty good deal. The zippered pair I received were made in 1991 and are brand new.

Been using these daily now for about half a year or so...I walk in rough, no trail, arboreal forest and also use them for deep snow while Nordic skiing (like today). I have the zip version and I must say I absolutely love'em and have retired my old time "name brand" and tested one's in favor of these. They fit really well, they are thick (thicker than top quality cotton canvas gaiters) and easily keep out the foreign nastiness from going down the boots, plus and look the business...all this and for nothing more than pocket change. A brilliant buy.

Best gaiters i have ever used. Mine came in a very good overall shape. Usable both on deep snow or agressive vegetation.
Highly recommend it.
Thanks Varusteleka!

They are great. Warm and keeps your trousers dry. The only problem is that they are somewhat restrictive in size. I have to put them on before my boots and underneath I can fit probably about 2 layers of trousers. But overall they are worth the price and very handy to have.

Bought 2 pairs, one for me and one for the wife. Worthy and better than a lot of modern offerings. Half star less due to rubber chipping on some parts, nothing compromising tho.

Puoli-ilmaiset säätystimet joka hommaan. Itse sain uudenveroiset, mutta kylläkin voimakkaasti homeen hajuiset. Matskukin on aika veikeetä juttua.

Great for roughshooting in bramblesand other thick thorny stuff, saves both trousers and legs as they are thick and rubbery. Cleans out easily with the garden hose.

Switzerland; no wars for generations so they surplus unused 33 year old gaitors that beat the snot out of new commercial crap in party colors at five times the cost. The only concern is a little noisy with extreme ankle movement.
