Made tough with 8oz Corespun Canvas, the Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiter is well suited to
Able to withstand the spiky forces of Australia’s native Spinifex bush, the Quagmire Canvas gaiter not only provides you with reliable leg armour but has the benefit of being extremely breathable. The canvas material is also stiff enough to stand up with the top open for extra ventilation.
1000 denier Cordura fabric provides a durable and snug fit around your boots, while an alloy hook buckle on the front provides superior fit adjustment and shin protection. Finished off with alloy and stainless steel hardware, inner ankle scuff pads, and a replaceable foot strap, the Quagmire gaiters will keep your legs protected on any on, or off-trail hike.
Gaiters are sturdy and of good quality. But slightly on the thin side were one to encounter an aggressive tiger snake etc.
Sea to Summit appears all about light-weight hiking gear?! This is one product I wish they had made a bit thicker. Not sure the gators are up to a determined snake but I don't want to test it!
I've never used gaiters before and wasn't sure if I really would need them, but these were excellent and I was so glad I bought them. They are easy to use and protected my legs from tough bushland.
Only used this once so far to trek through thick dry shrub and found it more than robust to cope through that type of terrain
Great product. Well made. Under strap very stiff but I guess it won’t break. Great service from Snowy’s.
Wore these on my trip doing the Overland Track. I have sneaker height walking shoes and even when I thought I'd stepped in a mud puddle too far, i.e. over my shoe, the Quagmire Gaiters kept my foot dry. Yay!
Really easy to use after initially adjusting the arch strap. So pleased I purchased these after wearing them the first time, I was the only person in the group to not be covered in burs. Also appreciate the advice on snake bite under the product caption on the website- went and purchased some compression bandages. Thankfully not needed to date.
We bought these for ourselves. My farm husband thought I was crazy and now he loves them too. All my kids have gaiters. They give you such security on a true bush trek! Love them
Never disappointed with products from STS.
These are essential for ensuring you can enjoy a great bush walk with less fear this summer. So well made and they just look awesome on. Something you won't regret buying and can maybe even last a lifetime. Would also be a great gift for Xmas coming!!
My calf size is 38 cm & boot size US 13 - what size do you recommend?
I've just had a chat with our gaiter and hiking footwear experts on the shop floor. They suggested that you'd be best off going for the XL Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiters.
Do these fit OK while just wearing normal work boots? I mostly wear normal leather boots around the property, just pull on blundstone type boots with elastic sides (so no laces for the hook to hold onto) and would like some good gaiters while trudging through the bush?
You'll have no worries at all using the Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiters with your work boots.
Hi, my calves are 52 cm will the XL fit? im an ecologist adn they look ideal for long grasses but ive always had a problem getting gaiters to fit
Sea to Summit recommend a maximum calf circumference of 47cm so I'd be inclined to say no, they won't fit sorry. I'd recommend looking into One Planet RFG Gaiters that are made in Victoria, but as we don't sell them you'd have to call them direct. From memory thier XL size caters to bigger calves. I hope this helps.
Is the Gaiter waterproof? Water repellent... maybe
The Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiters are water resistant but not waterproof, no. Prolonged exposure to moisture will cause the gaiters to wet out but they should remain dry inside during light rain, stepping through puddles etc.
My calf size is approximately 43cms, but I guess one needs to factor in the extra dimension created by trousers. My shoe size is 44, or 9.5 in the old lingo. I think an extra large size - any thoughts?
My thoughts are only that I think you're right on the money! I reckon the extra large Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiters will be perfect for you.
Hi. I take a US size 10 boot, but measure 41 around the calf. Would you recommend medium or large?
For a size US10 boot I'd recommend you go for a Large in the Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiter. It'll fit your boot better than a Medium and it'll give you enough room around the calf.
I have a pair of size 12 Scarpa SLs. What size gaiters would you recommend?
From your shoe size I would say that you should go for the Large size in the Quagmire Canvas Gaiters. But, you should also consider the size of your calves, as that's another crucial area.
The Large is ideal for calf circumference between 41-45cm, and the X Large is 43-47cm, so you should be able to find something that will fit from those sizes.
Thanks Emily. My calf size is 37 cm. Would you recommend I go with the Large then? Or would a smaller size still work with my boots?
If that's the case Philip, my colleague has just told me that he had the same Scarpa SL boots (can you believe it?) as you in a similar size, and he wears a small gaiter and finds that is a good fit for him as he has calves that are on the slimmer side.
A small would be a better fit at 37-40cm than my original suggestion, and will still give you a good seal at the top of the shoe, it just won't cover as much of the boot.
The picture on sea to summit website shows the top strap having a metallic hook not a material velco strap.
I've just confirmed by having a look at the stock we have on the floor and comparing it to the Sea to Summit website - and you're right, they've changed the velcro strap to an alloy hook/buckle.
I've just gone through and updated the images and the product description to reflect the correct details, so those should be live right now.
Thanks so much for pointing this out for us, we must have just not noticed that update when the new stock came in!
I'm going on a hunting trip soon so looking around for the right gear. Thanks guys.
