Outdoor Research's Sparkplug gaiters are designed for runners who need a highly stretchy, breathable, water resistant gaiter that will keep debris out of their footwear.
Outdoor Research says:
The ultra-minimal Sparkplug Gaiters are running gaiters stripped down to the bare necessities: breathable, wicking, water-resistant stretch fabric shields your shoes and socks from trail debris, light rain and snow, and the single attachment hook easily and quickly attaches to most running shoes.

Outdoor Research's Sparkplug Gaiters are made from very thin stretchy fabric with a highly water resistant coating, we can't imagine they will keep much water out so buy these if you want something lightweight to keep debris out of your shoes. At the front there's the ubiquitous lace hook and at the back is a velcro pad with corresponding self adhesive velcro that you attach to your heel.
There's no underfoot cord so the heel velcro needs to work - which it does, but we're not sure how well it would transfer to new footwear. We couldn't find the anti-slip silicon pads referred to in the feature list. A nice running gaiter though, super stretchy and very lightweight.
