Good gaiters

Kept legs warm and dry, comfortable to wear. Only drawback was hard to adjust underfoot strap. Prompt delivery from Snowy's.

Perfect gaiters

I bought these gaiters for the Overland Track. They fit snug and we’re comfortable to wear, keeping my calves warm and my boots dry and mud free! They sure did get muddy on this trek but they provided the perfect protection. I would recommend these to anyone looking for their first pair of gaiters/any gaiters - these are worth the investment!

Waterproof is a bonus

in a group of 4 walking the Overland Track in Tasmania, 2 of us had the Quagmire Event gaiters - and we were the happiest. The weather was wet, cold and muddy. These gaiters were waterproof and kept our legs and boots dry. Other gaiters in the group were not waterproof which meant the pants underneath got wet and then the gaiters prevented them from drying out. Shorter gaiters didn't offer the same level of protection. No problem at all with the Quagmire Event. Might be hot on a warmer walk, but great for wet cold weather.

Great !

I have used the on three days trip to Snowy mountains. They have been great, easy to put on and off. I walk through snow two days and they have provided a great protection.

Quality item

Very strong, waterproof, and fit well. Also comfortable to walk in. Long wet grass no longer a problem, and nice armour against poisonous snakes.

Perfect on all hikes and they provide extra warmth around the calves. Calf strap is adjustable rather than elastic which is awesome.
Bottom strap that sits at bottom of the shoe is a little annoying/difficult to adjust at first but if you do it beforehand you'll only really ever need to do it that once. It's a sturdy strap so hopefully will last a long time.

Gaiter size1 answer

I need some help picking the right size gaiter for me. I currently wear a size 12 US mens scarpa boot however my skinny legs measure a calf size of only 35cm. Researching sea to summit gaiter sizes some recommend my shoe size should fit a large size gaiter however my calf measure suits a small size. Im approximately 6ft in height. What size gaiter would you recommend for I need? Thanks Snowys

G'day Steve,

I reckon you're best off going for a large rather than looking smaller as often the Sea to Summit Gaiters tend to be a little smaller than the sizing charts suggest.

protection from snake bites1 answer

Hi there, Do these offer any level of protection from snake bites compared to the standard quagmire gaiters? Regards, Ray

- Melbourne(6 months ago)

G'day Ray,

Your best bet for preventing snake bites is by using the Sea to Summit Quagmire Canvas Gaiter, although they're not able to 100% guarantee you won't be bitten. Sea to Summit have made a handy little PDF that will help you prevent any nasty bites. You can find that PDF here.

leg height sizing1 answer

Hi, i have short legs, 30cm from ankle to bottom of knee so would these quagmire gaiters be too long or do they come in diff height sizes as well as calf sizes. Which ones should i go for?

- sydney(11 months ago)

G’day Mick,

The Quagmire Event Gaiters only come in general sizes. What’s important though is that the gaiter fits around your calf snugly but not too tight. 

The small size has a calf circumference of 37-40cm and is 32H cm high. So height wise it should be ok, but definitely give your calves a measure and if they are bigger than that, you might need to consider a different model.

A shorter option is the Spinifex Ankle Gaiters by Sea to Summit, these ones are 22cm high but only come in one size which you can look at here.

Difference between these and Quagmire?1 answer

Hi team, trying to decide between Quagmire and Quagmire eVent. From the details I read that Quagmire is not waterproof and is only water resistant. The eVent is fully waterproof. Do I need my gaiters to be water proof? When you say Quagmire is water resistant, are they likely to get wet and heavy? I am buying these primarily for Green Gully Track in NSW, with a view for use in the future (Overland Track, etc). Please help me choose.

G'day JB, 

For hot harsh environments, you're better off with canvas gaiters such as the Quagmires as they are a little tougher. They will get a little heavier when wet, but it shouldn't be very noticeable. For wet and cold environments, you would want the waterproof Quagmire eVent gaiters. 

Since both those locations that you're planning on hiking in are on the cold/rainy side - the Quagmire eVent gaiters look to be the better option for you.

Sizing1 answer

I'm considering buying theses but need some help as to how to choose what size to buy?

- 3072(1 year ago)

G'day Tracy, 

With gaiters you go by calf size, so crack out a tape measure and measure your calves and then compare it to the sizes these gaiters come in. 

For calf circumferences these gaiters come in Small - 37-40cm, Medium 39-42cm, Large 41-45cm, and X-Large 43-47cm.

You want to make sure they're a firm fit so that they’re effective. If you’re still unsure you can give us a call or get back to us and we can give you a hand selecting the best size for you.

Are these Gaiters waterproof ?1 answer

- Evandale(2 years ago)
The Event fabric is 100% waterproof Todd, and highly breathable. Combine these with some waterproof boots and over-pants and you will stay dry in the worst of weather. This being said, no gaiter creates a completely waterproof seal where they join your boots and pants, they can be tightened but if you were to stand in ankle high water you would get water seeping in under the gaiter.
