      Sizing boot gaiters can be a bit tricky. Generally, if you wear full boots (Kenetreks, Danners, Lowas) and/or have large calves you will likely want to go with the LG. If you have smaller feet or calves (>9) or wear a lighter boot or trail shoe (Soloman, La Sportiva) you will want to go with the SM.

Front closure.
These are great gaiters. The feature that I enjoyed most over other gaiters that I have used was the hook and loop (Velcro) closure goes directly up the front of the gaiter as opposed to going up the outside.

Essential, these gaiters are awesome.
My favorite pair of gaiters by far. They are great in snow, or cold, wet vegetation. Combined with a good pair of boots these gaiters have kept me comfortable and dry in almost anything.

Finally September is here and I was able to get out and hunt. The first day I hiked around without these gaiters on and constantly had to clean my boots out of debris. I had these on the rest of the time on the mountain and was very satisfied with with zero debris in my boots and the durability of them over the sharp rocky terrain. Impressed by the comfort with movement up and down slopes and through thick brush.

Solid Gaiters
After trying all kinds of gaiters these are the only ones that have held up for me.

Awesome Gaiters
Bombproof and quiet! I have tried a bunch of gaiters and these are the best I have ever used.

Really like these Gaiters
I've owned and used gaiters from most the top companies in the hunting and outdoor industry. The Brambler gaiters are my favorite. The stay up on my calves very well, keep my feet and boots dry, and are very comfortable for me.

I did rip a one of them when I caught it on a barbed wire fence and fell. I bought a replacement pair but am still using the first pair with the rip. There are two things I would change to make these perfect.

1 - I would make the straps replaceable since they will eventually wear out.
2 - I would not have any metal toward the bottom such as the buckle for the strap which can get bent and damaged on sharp, rocky terrain.

Solid but not waterproof
These fit great, work fine to keep light moisture and dry snow at bay but they are not waterproof. After scouting this year in the high country in them a few times, wading through knee high wet grass (wearing rain pants over them so I know the moisture wasn't getting in from the top, just through the exposed lower section) it started to seem like they were really wet on the inside, not just around the bottom edge. I then conducted two tests, one was to prop them up at a 45-degree angle and let water run over them for 1.5 hours. This resulted in saturated outer fabric and wetting through the inner liner fabric. I then layed them out flat and formed them into a concave shape and pooled about 1/2 cup of water in them. They wet through in a similar way as the running water, starting at about an hour and then slowly wetting out all the way through. In the end, they are generally well made and a great cut but if you want waterproof, get seam sealed Goretex or something similar. Seems like First Lite could go the extra mile here and build gear they would stand behind in any mountain hunting situation.

Not much to say, other than these deliver exactly what you expect from a quality gaiter.

Tough and functional
Love that I can wear these gaiters from Montana to Oregon they keep me dry and are easy to take on and off. I have no problems with them sliding down my legs and love that they also don't let stickers cling to them like others I've had!

Awesome gaiter for deep snow
I used these all winter in the Idaho Panhandle for hound hunting in deep snow. They work great and held up to major abuse from miles of snowshoeing/slogging. Great gaiter

Wet feet or dry feet...which do I choose?
Dry! These gaiters are great. It was a wet year of hunting and these were a constant in my pack. I was regularly the only one with dry feet in camp each night. Even when it wasn't wet these are nice to have on when you are walking through the thick stuff because they are extra durable and will prevent your pants from getting all tore up. A bit warm for when the weather is above 60 but overall a solid product.

Awesome Gaiter
I wore these during a week long elk hunt in Idaho's panhandle where it rained 5 out of the 7 days. I was amazed at how dry they kept me while putting on miles every day through the brush. I will have these on every trip I go on.

Why the Cordura?
I almost didn't purchase these due to my concern about how noisy they'd be with the Cordura insteps, but after being satisfied with many other First Lite products, I figured I'd give these a shot. Unfortunately, the Cordura is in fact noisier than I'd like. I think I'd like these a lot more if they ditched the Cordura and were 37.5 all around.

Weatherproof and Tough as Nails
I picked up a pair of Brambler Gaiters before the season started and they've proven to be everything I could want in a gaiter. They are incredibly tough. I've put them through the ringer on a 10-day hunt in BC where we bush-whacked through soaking wet willow and spruce thickets every day. I also wore them every day of a November mule deer hunt in the rocky, cactus-ridden country of western Colorado. Through it all, my boots, socks and pants remained dry and clean. And after a wash, they still look as good as new. Amazing.

Great Gaiter - But Please Make in Pine (and other solids)
Outstanding gaiters that will take anything that nature can throw at them. Helped keep me dry and protected the hem of my pants. As someone who doesn't wear camo, however, I'd appreciate some solid colors and would definitely repeat my purchase. Thanks for such an outstanding design.

Do yourself a favor and just buy them
If your looking for a gaiter these are the ones to get. I have the L/XL and a size 11 foot, they fit perfect. I wear Kenetrek boots, and with these gaiters, I have done multiple stream crossings in 10 plus inches of water and not once did my feet get wet. I have a competitors gaiter and the Brambler just outperforms. The durability is great and the velcro and buttons hold firm. I definitely recommend!

Great Gaiter , Tough and fits great
I wasnt a fan of the previous gaiter FL had to offer, it was too small and wasnt waterproof. Ive been waiting for this product to come out for a while. Built really heavy and they fit much better, i got the L/Xl and cover pants and boots nicely. The material and stitch quality is tough and durable , a must for the back country.
