Excellent gaiters for a friendly price - who the hell decided to get rid of these for this cheap!? Good ol' 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 we rarely get: 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. Good stuff, good stuff.

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.


Pari vuotta nyt käytetty aktiivisesti ja edelleen kuin uudet. Käytän myös lyhytvastisten saappaiden kanssa, niin säilyy puntit kuivana.

Erinomaiset myös talvella lumikenkäilyssä.

Very roomy which is good because I walk a lot of miles,My job requires it,My calf measures 40cm (16 inches) around,So do not worry that they will not be big enough,They are! Very happy with the purchase!

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.
