Trail gaiters are a great way to keep your feet and ankles warm while hiking. The breathable and waterproof material keeps dirt, snow, and other elements out of your shoes. They also help prevent your Achilles tendon from becoming cold, wet, and stiff. Salomon Gaiters come in a variety of colors and are comfortable and affordable.
The Salomon Trail Gaiters can be tightened around your ankle or shoe with an adjustable instep strap and front hook. A durable, water repellent fabric lining and a padded zipper help keep out water and debris. You can choose a low-cut version or a high-cut model. The high-cut model is slightly heavier but offers more protection from underbrush.
This gaiter is made of an elastic-comfortable nylon-spandex blend that’s comfortable and breathable. The material is durable and quick-drying. It has even held up on volcanic rock in the U.S. Pacific Northwest. It’s also highly breathable, making it a great choice for hot and dusty trails.
Runners often prefer trail running gaiters that are breathable instead of waterproof. They want to minimize sweat, which can lead to blisters. Breathability also keeps the feet cooler and allows them to dry quicker.
