Tips & Tricks for Nailing Your Gaiter Fit
With a range of gaiters designed for different activities, deciding which one is right for you isn’t always straightforward. And while we recommend trying on our gaiters in-store as well as discussing your specific needs with a sales associate, we realize that isn’t always an option. So to help you choose the right gaiter for your next adventure, our product designers Brad and Nico have put together a short list of tips & tricks to ensure you get the best possible fit and performance.
#1 - Zero In On Your Activity of Choice
If you’re buying a gaiter for a specific activity, it’s essential to begin by choosing the one that’s best suited for the expected conditions. This will ensure you’re always using the right tool for the job.
For example, our ultra-tough gaiters (NAVAgaiter™ and RENAgaiter™) are our most durable and are designed for activities where they may need to stand up to intense abrasion or extremely sharp objects. For activities where lighter weight is key—such as trail running or backpacking—our ultra-light gaiters (INSTAgaiter™ and LEVAgaiter™) are your best bet. For high-output activities, RENAgaiter™ and INSTAgaiter™ use lightweight, breathable DWR coated stretch-woven nylon to keep you cool, while LEVAgaiter™ and NAVAgaiter™ use GORE-TEX for activities that require maximum protection from the elements.
