Montane's Vortex gaiters are a waterproof ankle gaiter with Velcro closure and a very substantial construction.

Montane says:

The Vortex Stretch gaiter features full elastication around the calf to provide a well fitting gaiter pefect for year round mountain use. It is water resistant, breathable and features a ‘hockey stick’ front Velcro closure system that reduces excess fabric across the top of the boot, enhancing comfort during prolonged use.

Montane's Vortex gaiters are a waterproof ankle gaiter with Velcro closure and a very substantial construction. There's been a lot of design work on the features, the result is the J shaped closure which should improve the fit - the straight up and down of other gaiters mean that when the front bunches up (eg when walking up hill) there are several layers bunching at the front of the leg - this design means that there's only a single layer of fabric where the bunching occurs.

Another unusual feature is a stretch panel at the back for extra comfort. The main velcro closure is ably assisted by substantial press studs and the underfoot straps adjusts easily using internal velcro.

All these features result in quite a heavy gaiter compared to some other ankle types, but if you need a very durable product this one is just that but also justifies its extra weight with some nice features.
