Exceptional value, the Sea To Summit Grasshopper Gaiter is an ideal entry level or occasional use option with no compromise when it comes to features.
Made with 600D ripstop Polyester, and featuring all the adjustments such as secure front Velcro closure, stainless steel lace hook, and a pull tight top closure the Grasshopper gaiters offer functional versatility at a budget price.
Great value for money. My first set of Gaiters and very happy. My only gripe would be that they don't breath and you sweat. But hey i knew that when i brought them. I'll upgrade to breathable one's in the future but for now they do what i need them too.
Great value, comfortable to wear.
I wore these on the Overland Track in Tassie recently. They performed really well in keeping the mud out of my boots. The laces are not as convenient as straps and the material doesn't breath, however for the price they are very good and do the job.
I'm going to do the Southcoast track this summer. I like that it is light and budget-friendly, but would like to know if it is comfortable to wear in long walks during the summer months when it can get hot.
The Sea to Summit Grasshopper Gaiters are probably the most breathable out of the entire range due to the light/thin 600D Polyester Fabric, however, I would still assume that you will find them quite warm to wear through summer months. I'm not sure what solution you could look at however to get the best of the situation.
Do these offer protection from snake bite.
Sea to Summit offer a large range of gaiters including the Grasshopper Gaiters, which will help prevent a bite, but can never offer 100% protection against snake bites.
If you're concerned, the most densely woven, puncture resistant gaiter currently made by Sea to Summit is the Quagmire Canvas Gaiter. The Quagmire provides at least 39cm coverage up your leg delivering peace of mind no matter where you are bushwalking.
Will they resist water walking through shallow stream?
In general most gaiters are mainly to protect you from debris, rough terrain and snakes - so they're not made to be 100% waterproof.
The Sea to Summit Grasshopper Gaiters are made from 600D Polyester, so they should theoretically repel water to some degree.
If you make sure that your gaiters are put on tightly, and you're wearing waterproof shoes then that will minimise the risk of water coming through but it won't prevent it entirely.
