Designed for use with high volume mountain boots, the Latok Extreme GTX Gaiter is a waterproof and breathable gaiter for protection from mud, water and snow on rough wet ground.
The Latok Extreme GTX Gaiter is made with 70D GORE-TEX® waterproof technology, and a tough Robic® nylon ankle area. It features a zipless hook and loop front closure, streamlined internal strap adjustment, and single hand drawcord top closure.
Sized to suit large leather and low profile plastic mountaineering boots, a rubberised abrasion-resistant underboot strap and flexible polymer strip on the rear help keep the gaiter in position.

Rab's Latok Extreme Gore-Tex Gaiters receive an updated look and a welcome into the Gore-Tex family this year.
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.
The whole bottom section is reinforced for durability. The hypalon understrap is fitted using velcro so it can be easily adjusted although not whilst you're using the gaiters.
The top edge is secured by a shockcord with a neat locking mechanism, a single pull to tighten and a single pull of the grey 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.
