The Trek Gaiters provide excellent value for money in a protective, waterproof and fully featured set up. A classic design with durable materials giving you a hard working piece of kit.
Prepare yourself for long walk-ins and multi-day mountain expeditions. With ripstop nylon construction and tough ankle reinforcements, our lightweight Trek Gaiters provide durable defence against stones, water, mud and snow.
Our new Trek Gaiter makes lower leg protection simple. Designed using tough but flexible 70D two-layer ripstop nylon with 200D ankle reinforcements, it comes with a TPU underfoot strap for a secure fit to a bulky trekking boot. It also features a DWR coating for extra waterproofing, plus minimised seam construction and a zipless hook-and-loop front closure for easy access. The upper closure is adjusted with a one-handed drawcord and the lower strap features a secure internal adjuster for extra comfort and durability.
If you need an accessible multi-sport gaiter for reliable protection during mountain hikes in changeable weather, our new Trek Gaiter is a highly versatile solution.
Rab's Trek Gaiters use a combination of 70D and 200D fabric to provide a highly durable, lightweight and waterproof package. These gaiters use lighter weight fabrics than others but the 200D reinforcements around the ankles are certainly durable enough to use with crampons in winter. Using alternative, own brand waterproof fabrics help keep these gaiters well priced without sacrificing performance.
For such a light weight gaiter there is no lack of features. The solid Velcro closure is made more secure with a popper at the top while an elasticated strip around the ankle, elasticated drawcord around the top and a durable hook for the laces ensure they stay in place once you've put them on. The thick, durable strap that runs under the boot is great quality and has certainly worn well with regular use.
