Hunting gaiters
« on: November 26, 2017, 07:40:36 AM »
Hey all,   I'm in the market for a new set.  My cabelas ones I bought 15 yrs ago finally gave up.  I'm pleased with the way they lasted, but the current cabelas gaiters don't seem to have great reviews.  What are you all using?

Kenetrek or Kuiu both work well and are quiet.
It's a TIKKA thing..., you may not understand.

I've been running the new Sitka gaiters. They've held up great so far and they're made out of a soft waterproof material so they're quiet compared to most.

My wife and I switched to Kenettek gaiters a couple years ago.  They are holding up well so far.

I use the kenetreks almost daily during Hunting season. They have held up well for five years now.

I bought a pair of fleece gaitors from Cabelas that work well. Shake 'em out every once in a while and they're dry again.

I currently run kuiu and they are pretty bullet proof, the kenetrek gaiters I had before fell apart after one season.
60% of the time, it works every time.

I'm using Kuiu and love them. I wish they made black but I chose the major brown and have been happy.

Kuiu here as well and its one of my favorite pieces of gear, but this is a fair criticism, the fabric isnt silent

Outdoor Research Crocodile Gaiters are great. And they will replace them if they get damaged, whatever the cause!

Iíve been using OR Crocs too. Theyíre bombproof but theyíre not quiet so if youíre bowhunting Iíd look elsewhere.
