Ordered this online for forest hiking, to protect from mud. It did the job perfectly, it was water- and mudproof, I did not get sweaty under it in the humid, hot weather. Only problem is, one of the gaiters broke after the first hike I ever used them for (4hrs long, muddy forest path). The tiny metal bit where the clasp is attached to the fabric fell out, and got lost somewhere along the way. Overall, it is a great little pair of gaiters, but it broke way too soon, that's why it gets 3 stars only.
my bees were entering the top of my wellies and stinging my feet. Bought these gaiters to cover tops of wellies and the elasticated area half way up stops the blighters getting in that way. Excellent.
