Made tough with 8oz Corespun Canvas, the Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiter is well suited to tough terrain in the warm Australian climate, and while there's never any guarantees, these offer the best reassurance against snake bites.

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.

  • 8oz Corespun canvas upper
  • Cordura™ base fabric

Quality product

Gaiters are sturdy and of good quality. But slightly on the thin side were one to encounter an aggressive tiger snake etc.

Thin material

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!

Great product

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.

Tough Gaiter

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

Fit for purpose

Great product. Well made. Under strap very stiff but I guess it won’t break. Great service from Snowy’s.

Kept me out of the quagmire!

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!

Peace of mind

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.

Best bushwalking accessory ever

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

Must have

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?

- Caringbah(1 month ago)

G'day Gene,

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.

Wear with work boots?1 answer

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?

- Earth(3 months ago)

G'day Troy,

You'll have no worries at all using the Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiters with your work boots.

calf size1 answer

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

- Dunsborough(7 months ago)

G'day Gary,

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.

Waterproof1 answer

Is the Gaiter waterproof? Water repellent... maybe

- Sydney(8 months ago)

G'day Sidney,

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. 

- Snowys(8 months ago)

Gaiter size1 answer

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?

- Leonay(10 months ago)

G'day Jim,

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.

Sizing1 answer

Hi. I take a US size 10 boot, but measure 41 around the calf. Would you recommend medium or large?

- Mt Hawthorn(1 year ago)

G'day Simon,

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.

Sizing for Scarpa Boots3 answers

I have a pair of size 12 Scarpa SLs. What size gaiters would you recommend?

- Doonside(1 year ago)

G'day Phillip, 

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. 

- Snowys(1 year ago)

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?

- Doonside(1 year ago)

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.

Ia the picure correct?1 answer

The picture on sea to summit website shows the top strap having a metallic hook not a material velco strap.

- Yallourn(2 years ago)

G'day Joe, 

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!

Can these withstand snake bites?1 answer

I'm going on a hunting trip soon so looking around for the right gear. Thanks guys.

- SYDNEY, NSW(3 years ago)
There's no guarantee against snake bites with these gaiters sorry Daniel, but from the range of Sea To Summit Gaiters these will offer the best protection. My understanding is that snakes in Australia have small fangs, and a heavy material such as denim or preferably canvas will offer some reassurance.

what are the calf measurements1 answer

- sedona, az(4 years ago)
Hi Lina, I have added calf measurements to the specifications for Quagmire gaiters. The sizes overlap a little as adjustments can be made with the wide velcro strap, the measurements are: Small - 37 - 40cm Medium 39 - 42cm Large 41 - 45cm X-Large 43 - 47cm
