RAB's Latok Extreme Gaiters are made from eVent fabric which is leading edge when it comes to waterproof and breathable fabrics. However 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.
These are a similar gaiter to the Latok Alpine except they are sized for larger boots and have a larger reinforcement at the ankle.
