3.5-Layer Waterproof Construction
Brambler Gaiter Details
Sizing boot gaiters can be a bit tricky.
Generally, if you wear full boots (Kenetreks, Danners, Lowas) and/or have large calves (size 10 and bigger) you will likely want to go with the LG.
If you have smaller feet or calves (size 9 and smaller) or wear a lighter boot or trail shoe (Salomon, La Sportiva) you will want to go with the SM.

I own a lot of FL stuff. But given that I am paying in CAD, I am very scrupulous in researching and decided which pieces to purchase - there can be no redundancy in my kit and I need to be sure each piece is essential... I was really unsure if I needed gaiters, considering I run knee-high rubber boots for spring turkey to combat morning dew and some river action, but I have found myself wearing these now on 95% of my hunts; whitetail stand included! Let me just say that they are much more versatile than even FL markets them to be, and I also consider them to be an essential piece of safety gear.
Now, they are not the quietest things out there if you are not careful, but I have found them invaluable when matting down briars as I stalk close to bedding areas or to keep my Uncomphgre Puffy Pants tight around my ankles and out of snags while stalking. Yes, that's correct - I use the Puffy Pants in combo with these gaiters for creeping around in turkey and whitetail country in the cold and I think it's a brilliant hack; it affords me the ability to quickly put on or remove the insulating layer, while keeping it protected from underbrush, and without the bulk of full bibs.
Not only do the gaiters protect whatever I am running as pants up to the shins, but they have saved my boots and boot laces from tears and mud caking. Most importantly, they have saved my ankles and shins more than once from being speared by deadfall, which is something I am all too familiar with... These things are tough.
And yes, they keep my feet and pants dry, free of water, snow, and mud as intended.
I'll also add that I was very worried about fitment. I have long, large calves by smaller feet for my size. I hesitantly ordered the L/XL with size 10 boots, but can say I am very happy with the size. Running my smallest summer ankle boots, I have to use the last eye on the strap, but the larger size gives me room in the calf to layer for all seasons, as discussed.
amazing, 20 degrees wet as hell and guess what, my feet are dry. You make that mistake a few times in life and learn, then get better gear. This is that better gear.
Ordered these 2 weeks before season started and recieved them just in time to put them to use. Wore them through thick wet grass and multi-florarose bushes. They tore through every thing without a scratch. They protected my pants and boots from a beating. Fit well and stayed snug on my boot and leg.
I ordered these and used them for my hunting season in Alberta,Canada this year. Every single hunter should have these in their kit especially if trekking through snow or any sort of element. High quality and comfy fit! I can't believe I waited this long to get them!
I hate to say this is my go to piece as first lite makes top of the line gear, but I grab these gaiters almost all year round when I head into the woods for any and all activities. Early morning dew to any tough brush, thorns even water crossings are a non issue with these on. I just bought a second pair in case mine ever wear out. If you are even questioning these gaiters as part of your kit. Get them, you will wonder why you didn’t sooner
Absolutely awesome I live in the rocky's and am constantly in rain mud snow in western Montana and these things are super solid waterproof. These are the gaiters to get.
I got these for my wife who has begun hunting in the past couple years. She's coming with me for upland birds and small game now and wanted gaiters to protest her boots and pant legs in the low brush. She loves these. She also wears them when we take short hikes or scouting trips with the kids. Likes the Dry Earth color and says they fit perfectly (body specs are hers). The upper strap keeps them in position just under the knee. She forgets she has them on. Easy on/off. Exactly what she was looking for. Nice work.
I have ran several different gators over the years. I owned a couple of pairs of kenes but they never lasted more then a season or two. I am going on my 3 season and have put these things to the test more then any other. They are holding strong I love them. Absolutely buy them you will not be disappointed. Side note I where 10” Hoffman’s and they fit snug around the boot
Solid product just like everything else they make. The does run on the larger side in my opinion, if you are between sizes or have doubt then size down. That is unless you have some serious clodhoppers or massive calves.
Based off of my sizing I went for the L/XL but they were definitely too big to reason taking them out even after adjustments with average size boots. I swapped them out (returns were easy and customer service was great) for the S/M and they are proper for my build. Even with larger boots I would be able to make adjustments to make them work. My boot size is 10.5.
I recently bought these gaiters to use on an Elk trip in the San Juan mountains.
The gaiters performed perfectly on the rocky terrain by keeping the rocks out of my boots and protected me from the dew on the ground and sag brush.
I would highly recommend these if your planning on doing any back country hunting.
