Green Hermit's Ultralight Desert Gaiters have a velcro opening at the front, diagonal zipped vent and are made from high quality materials such as Hypalon and Cordura Fabric.
Green Hermit says:
Designed specifically for walking and hiking on sand in hot weather, this long gaiter adopts the unique side-zipper design, together with 30D Cordura fabrci keeping a perfect baalance of light weight, breathability and practicality. Traditional front opening style with bi-directional adjustable and detachable hypalon bottom strap, making the gaiter very easy to use.
Green Hermit's Ultralight Desert Gaiters are designed for waling in the desert - but we don't know why they just aren't marketed as standard gaiters as they are a good, well constructed gaiter for all situations. The fairly unique feature is the zipped vent, unzip this section and you have mesh behind it allowing you get air to your legs. This is useful in standard gaiters which can be hot at times, the addition of a vent means you don't have to keep taking them on and off.
30 Denier Cordura is pretty tough stuff and these gaiters are well made so should last well.
