Rab Alpine Latok Gaiter 4.8 5 4 4
Happy with this puchase Bought the The Rab Latok Alpine gaiter for general use but have just returned from a trip to the Alps where I used them in varying conditions on mixed ground, including deep snow. As many newer gaiter designs don't seem to have a zip anymore and rely solely on the Velcro fastening, I wasn't sure how they would perform in terms of keeping the wet and snow out. Have to say that I had no issues and was pleased with their performance in this area. Also, I found my last gaiters a bit to baggy, particularly around the calves [even though they were my size] and consequently caught on my crampons a few times. This can obviously be a concern particularly on precarious ground. Thankfully I didn't have this problem with the Rab Latok as they are a much more snug fit. Good overall performance and well priced so I would recommend them. 26 July 2013
High quality and fit for purpose at a reasonable price. I bought these after reading a few reviews in various outdoors magazines. They cling to the leg well, are fairly lightweight and comfortable. The quality of materials is very good. I haven't yet tested their full waterproofness, but being Rab I would trust them to deliver. I bought a medium as I use them with slim, mid cut Innov-8 roclites for lightweight walking and for this the size is good (not too baggy or falling down over the trainer). If using with mountain boots etc, you may need to go for large. Always try on at the shop, this was my first pair of gators and they are strange things to fit correctly on the first go. Ask a member of staff for help! The velcro strapping system supported by button clips holds firm and after a few minutes you don't notice they are on your legs apart from the odd adjustment required after a few hours. The replaceable strap is a must have as it will wear out eventually and other brands/models don't necessarily include this option. All in all a great gator, provided they suit your leg shape and length. 17 April 2013
Simply the best! Can't really fault these, only make sure you test them over boots as mine are a little tight over my Sportiva Evo's. Compared with some of the other high priced gaiters on the market these are well priced, and easily as good a quality. 27 July 2012
High quality and very durable gaiter I have used these gaiters across rough terrain, in the snow, boggy fields, boulder fields and tall grasses. I have also worn them whilst walking for five hours in the pouring rain. They are very comfortable, feel very secure and work very well indeed. 26 July 2012
