Designed for use with lower volume boots, the Latok Alpine GTX Gaiter is a waterproof and breathable gaiter for general hill and mountain walking in wet conditions.
The Latok Alpine GTX Gaiter is made with waterproof and breathable GORE-TEX® technology, and a tough Robic® nylon ankle. Featuring a zipless hook and loop front closure, streamlined internal strap adjustment, and a single hand drawcord top closure.
A rubberised abrasion resistant underboot strap, and flexible polymer strip on the rear helps keep the gaiter in position when striding out over sodden terrain.

Rab's Latok Alpine Gaiters now utilise Gore-Tex to provide waterproof, breathable protection. Rab have designed in some really nice features, the gaiters open at the front via a Velcro strip rather than a zip, we find this really easy to use, better than a zip and just as strong.
There's a stretchy strip of fabric up the rear of each gaiter which ensures a snug fit and the whole bottom section is reinforced for durability. The hypalon understrap is fitted using velcro so it has a degree of adjustment.
The top edge is secured by a shockcord with a neat new locking mechanism, a single pull to tighten and a single pull of the red tab will slacken it off. These are a very good gaiter with a full feature set, though the features add weight, making them relatively heavy.
