          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 (Solomon, La Sportiva) you will want to go with the SM.

Bad ass gaiters 10/29/2018

These gaiters are the best I’ve ever tried. They are extremely well built and I never worry about hurting them busting thru brush or briars. The Bramblers are also very good at keeping water and mud out when getting after it.

Great gators overall, calf section runs large 10/28/2018

Great gators, mpressed with their durability and waterproofing. Just got off a very wet Olympic Peninsula blacktail hunt full of bushwhacking through the Pacific Northwest jungle, and these things performed flawlessly. I’ve used many different mountaineering gators and these hold their own against any others.


How it fits
The fit on the calf runs quite large. Its workable with the cinch strap, but unless you have bodybuilder calves, be prepare to use most of the strap.

Really good so far 10/9/2018

I have tried nearly every brand of gaiter on the market, I've managed to wreck nearly every one of them. The alpine country I hunt Himalayan Tahr, and Chamois in is extremely tough on gear. I have had these a year now, and am reluctant to to do a review until I have properly tested them.

These are really light, reasonably waterproof and dry really quickly after a creek or river crossing. They are really quick and easy to fit, and seem to be quite tough. The only hole I have is from a crampon spike while pushing through thigh deep snow on a tahr hunt earlier this year. One concern I have is that the boot strap isn't replaceable, if it breaks or wears through you pretty much have to throw them away. Maybe a good idea for future design changes First LIte.


How it fits
I'm quite tall, but have chicken legs for calf muscles, so these run quite large on me, length is above the calf muscle, so they don't fall down. I have cut the top strap as it was way too long and annoyed the crap out of me.

Keeps Legs Dry and Protects 10/1/2018

I bought the Brambler Gaiter for an Idaho elk hunt in 2017. Wore them everyday and they did a great job of keeping brush and water off my shoes, laces, and shins. I gave them to my guide as a tip as he was impressed with them as well. I will have to order another pair for whitetail as I have to walk .5-1 mile to my stands through knee high grass.


How it fits
I will say I have thinner calves and wear a size 11 Salomon boot an 10 Danner boot. The Large size was a bit big. I will order the small size in the future to prevent sliding around on the leg.

love em! 9/20/2018

I haven't worn gaiters a lot but last year my boots got soaked inside and out walking through wet grass in the morning so I picked these up to add to my 2018 kit. I love em! I wear a size 10 Lowa Tibet boot, have average or below calves and the S/M fits perfect.


How it fits
Improvement in the S/M could come with the adjustment at the top. It could be a little tighter fit.

Perform great. 8/30/2018

I have worn these the past few years, and they have worked great. They are a good height for protection, keep your legs dry and protected, and they stay up where they need to be. I like the blend of softshell fabric in the front to keep them quiet and cordura for toughness. The softshell fabric has started to rub through a little on certain spots, but I've been pretty rough on them. The only reason for not getting 5 stars is that I wish there was a better way to tuck the tail end of the adjusting strap back in. Mine always pull out and has caused the buckle to open in thick brush. Mine are however a little big for me. I ordered the large based on my shoe size, but could have probably gotten away with the smaller size to fit my calves better. Order to your calf and not necessarily to your shoe size on these.

Keeps my pants dry 8/30/2018

Exceeded Expectations 8/30/2018

I purchased these last fall for a late season Bighorn hunt. They were amazing down low while climbing through swampy grassland, kept me dry as you would expect. As we gained elevation we were surprised with 2' of fresh snow from the night before, this is where these gaiters really blew me away. We spent the next 4 days in and out of snow and rock, at the end of each day my feet and my legs were the driest part on my body. Normally I wouldn't be wearing gaiters in high alpine but was forced to with the snow we encountered, and so I was completely expecting the boot strap to be shredded after 4 days, Much to my surprise there wasn't a single rip or cut in the strap, a few scratches but no real damage at all. Money well spent.

Solid Gaiter for all seasons 8/30/2018

These gaiters are great at keeping the socks/bottoms of pants dry on dewy mornings. My favorite feature is how quickly they can be thrown on and still be very effective. After you set the bottom leather strap to the size of your boot, they go on in seconds. They also are great when crawling through cactus country at keeping your boots clean (if you've filled your boots with dry brush you know what I mean) and your legs protected when you are on a belly crawl. After a few months of use, they seem to be holding up well.

Awesome 8/29/2018

Great pair of gaiters! Worked great here in Alaska busting brush, alders, devils clubs, etc., keeps your pants and boots protected. Keeps you dry and if you step in a creek thats too deep allows you a few seconds to get out before swamping your boots. Highly recommend.

Great! 8/29/2018

These gaiters work very well. They are a great all around gaiter. Sturdy, fairly quiet, the right height to offer good protection, and comfortable. The only reason for the four stars is for the top adjustment strap. If you have to cinch them down a lot, the tag end doesn't tuck back into itself very well and ends up just dangling. I had a few instances where it would catch brush and flip the buckle open. That being said, I could probably downsize and be fine. For sizing, go off your calf measurement and not your shoe size and you can probably avoid my issue.

Extremely well-built 8/29/2018

The design of these gaiters is well-thought out and perfectly constructed. They're bulletproof and are excellent at keeping everything out. Well worth the price, I'd buy them again if I can get my current pair to fall apart. Which is not going to happen anytime soon.

More useful than Steve Rinella says they are. 8/29/2018

I love these things. New England is wet and densely vegetated, and when i am wearing these gaiters I don't spend any time picking debris out from around my ankles or worrying about crashing through a slightly-over-boot-height stream. Velcro can be a bit loud if you don't get it laid together neatly, but with some care they are quiet. Plus they just look badass.

Great gaiter but issues getting the top tight enough 8/29/2018

Not much to say beyond the title - the gaiter is great. I've taken them out hunting a half a dozen times and snowshoeing once and they did great. I'll admit I was a little worried about the durability of the beneath the boot strap, but it seems to be holding fine. My only gripe is I have a hard time getting the tops tightened enough. I don't have the biggest calves admittedly, but I'm also 6' 190lbs, so I'd imagine a fair amount of smaller framed people would have issues as well. I can get them tight but then I have this long tail of the top strap flopping around. A bit annoying at times.

Brambler Gaiter Beats All 8/29/2018

I used my Brambler gaiters all through the 2017 hunting season and was very impressed with the durability, water repellency and ease of use of these.
We had record snow falls in Alberta so I also used them to walk to work to protect my dress pants and they were perfect for that as well.

I stopped in at Cabelas to check out their gaiters after buying mine and realised there was no comparison to the First Lites in any of the brands, so I ordered up another pair to give to my brother at christmas.


How it fits
Well tapered and profiled to fit down your leg - easier with slim fit pants, but can fit a set of carhartt double duck pants.

Overbuilt and extremely tough! 8/28/2018

I have worn these things in the nastiest of terrain, from swampy marshes and river crossings to snow covered fields with thorny bushes as well as in the mornings after a hard rain through tall grass. These things are rock solid, keeps your pants dry, protect them from everything hunting in the field can throw at you, plus they tie in nicely with your boots to keep them clean and repel the water when crossing creeks or hiking all day in the rain. Best gaiters I’ve ever bought.

Solid. Durable. Quiet. 8/20/2018

Fantastic gaitor. Kept my boots and socks dry while out in wet knee high grasses. Had some dirt and clay build up on them that dried, very easy to clean off. Works well with both my larger leather boots as well as my Crispi Thor early season boots. Strap is solid and durable, I’ve never worn through one before and these seem way better.


How it fits
They stay in place when dry. For me though, I would like to see a tad more adjustability in the calf area as sometimes I had to pull up a couple times when they were wet (pants and sock dry though). But I will say that is because due to a surgery my calf on my left leg is just a bit smaller than my right. So I can’t complain too much. Out of my control. But I imagine would work well for others.

Quality Product, room for improvement 7/31/2018

Overall the gaiters are very quality and do the job they are designed for. I don't like how the fusion pattern isn't consistent throughout all of First Lite's products, for example these are a slightly different shade than any of the merino fusion products. Also, these could use a replaceable boot strap because I can already foresee it wearing out.

I put these to the test on a 2 week long New Zealand DIY backcountry hunt. I think I only took them off to sleep. From steam crossings, to sliding down rocky chutes, to busting through thick brush these gaiters took a beating and looked brand new at the end of the trip. Highly recommended.

Tough, durable, reliable. 3/16/2018

I only want to add one thing to all the other review of this fine product—these gaiters are tough. Many reviewers have pointed out how useful they are in the mountains and in the northwest, but these are also an essential piece of gear for Texas plains, where you're going to run into cacti, spikes and pointy things, and worst of all the thorny mesquite tree. If you're using any of the First Lite pants in hostile terrain, protect your investment and pick these gaiters up.

Well made...with some hiccups 2/22/2018

Pretty awesome gaiter. Built well, seem waterproof. A few things I didn’t care for. I purchased the medium. I have smaller calves, but not that small. I cannot get them tight around my calves. They want to fall down. I continuously had to pull them up walking through snow. My calves measure 17.25” at the halfway point between my knee and ankle. The way they tighten down around the calve does not get tight enough. Other than that, they seem pretty bomb proof. It’s difficult to make a quiet gaiter that will be waterproof and last. These are definitely not quiet, but they will for sure keep you dry and mud free.

Awesomeness wrapped around your legs 2/16/2018

These are the second (first being a Chama)best thing I bought this year. Being from the PNW we have every type of condition to deal with in this state. I started using these in late November and have taken them on every outing. Hiking, hunting, pack training and snowshoeing. I don't know why I havnt got some sooner.
Only gripe I have is, why can't the undersole strap be replaceable?

Tough but Comfortable Backcountry Gaiter 1/28/2018

Wore these gaiters throughout Elk and Mule Deer rifle seasons in Hells Canyon this past year. Couldn't have asked for a more comfortable and protective gaiter. Hiking through crusted deep snow, and trekking through rimrock canyons was no problem with these gaiters. They give you a really snug and secure feel on your lower legs and keep your boots and pant-legs from getting torn up by rock and brush. I have several pairs as the smaller size is good for my Salomon hikers and the larges are better for my heavier insulated boots. The Brambler Gaiter is a must have for any serious Western hunter.

Nickname: Trevor
Awesome! 1/12/2018

I have owned a lot of gaiters in my life and none even compare to the bramblers. These kept me dry while crossing creeks up to 2 foot deep pheasant hunting in the late season in Minnesota. They are essential for getting to those places others cant get to! They also go on and off very easy making them that much more enjoyable to use in the field when you are making changes on the fly. They are a little loud but the durability and waterproof factor make it well worth it!

I just came out of a 3rd season CO mule deer hunt with over a foot of snow most of the week. These things were great! Kept my pants dry even after several creek crossings.

Not good in snow for long 11/12/2017

Just got done with an elk hunt in which we had about 6-10 inches of snow the entire week. The gaiters leaked the second day into the trip and they continuously got worse. Maybe the moisture came in through the Velcro strap. They were comfortable and they were better than nothing, however the bottom of my pants were soaked daily. The snow never came above the gaiters so I know that was not the problem. We were in high cold country the entire time.

Favorite accessory 11/10/2017

I wear these for two reasons. One being that they’re super tough and they protect my not so tough obsidians in sage brush terrain. The second being that with my gortex lined boots, I can walk through water almost as high as my knee without getting wet. Probably my favorite Firstlite product.

Used these in Colorado on a second season elk hunt. From stream crossings to navigating the sad amount of dead fall, these are powerful tools to keeping you secure in your boots.

Definitely part of my FL starting lineup!

Nice but too small 10/10/2017

I love the look and feel of these gaiters, as well as the shorter traverse gaiters. I have thick calves from weightlifting (18.5" circumference), and wasn't sure if the XL would fit. I phoned first lite, who instructed me that they should be fine...... Not even close when I tried them on. I needed at least another full inch of material for the gaiters to come close to fitting. The maximum calf size I'd recommend for these gaiters is 17.5". First lite, Please make a 2xl size of these!!! If you have large legs like mine, look at either getting the kenetrek xl size, or the kuiu XL size gaiters. I've tried them both on and those ones fit. Too bad first lite's product doesn't, otherwise I would have gone with them.

Most of my hunting is for white tails, I have grown tired of rubber boots and how they fit. Bought the gaiters and washed them is scent away.

These are great gaiters. Had previously run the OR gaiters and these are every bit as good. Kept stuff out of my boots and kept me dry hunting in about six inches of snow. Really like the front closure, they're very easy to get on and off. Feel like gaiters can be noisy but didn't have a problem with these, would just rub down the velcro real good and then not think about it anymore. Think these will take anything you throw at em and last for a very long time.

Front closure. 9/29/2017

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. 9/18/2017

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.

NO TWIGS, NO DIRT, NO ROCKS 9/15/2017

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 9/5/2017

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

Really like these Gaiters 7/31/2017

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 7/31/2017

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.

Perfect 6/26/2017

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

Tough and functional 6/16/2017

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 4/10/2017

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? 3/16/2017

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 11/19/2016

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? 11/16/2016

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 11/15/2016

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) 9/16/2016

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 8/21/2016

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 7/9/2016

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.
