My Sea to Summit goretex gaiters size M are showing wear but they have been holding up well. The new S2S versions are Event.

What size are Tasgear to match the Quagmire size M, and which version is best for variable terrain, not just wet but also rough terrain, burrs and seeds as well as the flippin snakes? :)

G'day Scotty just wanted to say my Tasgear gaiters have been great. Fit well, stay in position and I forget I'm wearing them! I walk in shoes and these cover them really well. Easy to open and check for sneaky leeches too.
Cheers Neo

I've also been happy with mine having used them a bit more now. I think I got 3 separate compliments about them at Pine Valley over Easter. :)

Hi Scotty.
Not a fan of gaiters but I do need a pair and yours are getting good feedback and look great as well.

Will the lightweight gaiters give good snake protection?
I notice the site has a pair of shoes matched with the lightweight gaiters. Will they work equally as well with a boot?

Cheers

Hi Scotty
well my Tasgear gaiters copped a flogging over summer and autumn, they have performed brilliantly. The cut is great, the fit is great, they are easy to get on and off and the tie under the gaiter which I suspected would give up on the dolorite has coped with kilometres of boulder hopping with nary a cut. Five stars out of five from me

Glad to hear they are serving you well.
It's funny how the areas that people thought (and so did I to start off with) would be a failure point.
The weak point still seems to be the front vertical strip stitching but there isn't much more I can do in this regard and the ongoing testing i'm doing show's it put up with alot before the need for repair.

How about a rear closure Scott?

I thought I was the only one who obsessed about rear closing gaiters. Welcome to the dark side.

re: the 'weak' point. The front stitching is still holding on on mine, although the folded edges outside the stitching have frayed to the point where that front panel is coming loose in a few spots. Still lasted waaaaay longer than anything else available. But, as Dan suggested, a rear closure would minimise that issue. It just makes shaping them properly more difficult.
