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 a 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.
Very well made bit of gear - perfect for snake season! Service and delivery from Snowys was fantastic.
Good gear...no snakebites so far
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.
