Light weight, comfortable debris gaiters that are great for running and fastpacking. A simple, effective design that minimises weight without sacrificing comfort or protection.
Fix to your trainers with a lace hook at the front and hook and loop patches on the heel. The gaiters are sold with additional patches to make them compatible with any trainer.
Raidlight's Hyper Trail Gaiters are great for keeping debris out when you're moving fast across any terrain. The stretchy design is really comfortable, even in hot conditions or when wet. They attach using a hook at the front for laces and a Velcro strip across the heel. They come with spare strips which you can add to the heels of a couple of different running shoes so you can alternate between them.
The material across the front keeps out some water and the padding around the ankles is a nice addition increasing comfort. In the long term there might be a bit of a concern over the stick-on Velcro strips to keep the gaiters in place but they have worked well so far.
