The original do-it-all gaiter of mountaineers, backcountry skiers, and off-trail adventurers, the Crocodile is designed to handle anything. Durable Taslan Gore-Tex leg sections resist Devil’s Club and keep snow out. The 1000D Cordura boot section, lined with coated 8 oz. packcloth, stands up to ski edges, crampon snags, and general boot wear. The water-resistant coating on the packcloth is sewn to face the Cordura layer, protecting the coating from boot abrasion. The hook and loop front closure is sewn with sturdy double-needle stitching. A shear tab prevents the front closure from separating at the bottom. The urethane coated nylon instep strap can be replaced on the trail without tools.
