Hybrid-mapped ActiveIce and Ferrosi fabrics provide lightweight, breathable, and weather resistant protection with a dual attachment system for the most secure low-profile gaiter.

Outdoor Research says:

Two of our lightest and most protective fabrics, hybrid-mapped into a gaiter for reliable defense against pesky rocks, dirt, and debris. ActiveIce™ technology actually cools you as you sweat, while providing UPF 50+ sun protection. Ferrosi fabric wards off wind and rain, and adds durability, stretch, and breathability for when you're moving fast in rugged terrain. The bottom of the gaiter is held securely by a dual attachment hypalon strap, along with a hook/loop attachment for the back of your shoe. You'll receive an extra pair of stick-on loops in the case that your trail runners don't come with that capability built in.

Outdoor Research's Ferrosi Hybrid Gaiters is a super stretchy and comfortable gaiter that is tougher than it looks. They use the classic Ferrosi soft shell fabric combined with the highly breathable ActiveIce fabric. They may not look like much, but they will keep out trail and weather debris thanks to their close fit and soft fabric.

Feature-wise, they have a small clip to attach to the laces/cord and a highly durable band that runs under your shoe and is removable. They come with a couple of sticky patches for your shoes so the heel can be attached to the Velcro on the rear. The performance of these gaiters is key with excellent breathability allowing you to stay comfortable a lot longer than traditional gaiters.

NOT waterproof but otherwise just the job

I have used these daily on a 21 day trek and also for a few mountain ascents and, so far, they are showing no signs of wear. They fit very snugly over my walking trainers and have kept out all debris over a variety of terrains including small stones, heather etc. They are light and as comfortable as socks around the ankle. The clips that fix to the under-shoe strap are quite small and thus tight on the elastic strap. This is a good thing in use but a bit awkward for taking on and off. I had a lot of difficulty with the one that is intended to fix to the front shoe lace until I realised that I didn't need to use it; the gaiter stays perfectly in place on my trainers without this, even in dense undergrowth. I also discovered that it is possible to stretch the under-shoe strap behind the heel and so avoid having to unclip that too! Don't know if this would work for all foot sizes; I am a UK size 6 and have the S/M sized gaiters. The claim that these "ward off" rain is unfounded and they certainly don't protect against wet undergrowth.

Poor construction

Poorly constructed, fragile product, the shockcord broke after two days on the trail.
