Customer Reviews of Mountain Equipment Trail DLE Gaiter (Summer 19)
These gaiters are great, really saved muck from going down my boots when I went ankle deep. The only problem is that the belt keeps getting loose which isn't the end of the world either.
These arrived in perfect condition packaged in a cardboard box and delivered in a timely manner. The gaiters are made of an extremely robust and lightweight material with extra protection on those parts that are prone to rubbing and friction. These are not as a baggy as other gaiters I have but I see that as a bonus. Extremely pleased with these and the way the strap underfoot tucks away into its own strap on the outside of the gaiters so it cant be snagged on crampons etc. Well done Mountain Equipment.
These gaiters are very light and easy to put on and adjust. The underfoot strap is strong along with its joining buckle. I've had them out on too harsh days and they have held up well. Easy to clean without damaging the material.
I have had these gaiters for a while now and worn them in all conditions even in summer with shorts for tick protection on lower legs. They are very robust and well made from good materials and fit very well over my boots and around the ankle and calf area and are a good length for mei'am a 32in leg size. I find that i do not need to use the under boot straps as they stay in place with no problem. The lace hooks remain in place also. And the top drawcords does not work loose.They keep the lower legs warm too on the coldest days out walking. They have kept the water and mud out of my boots and off my trousers. The velcro flap and zip on the front feels secure and they are fairly easy to put on and take off. They are easy to wash clean and dry too. Overall a very good gaiter for general walking and hiking. Excellent speedy service from Facewest.
I had my eye on these gaiters for a while and the recent snow was just the trigger I needed to make this purchase. Speedy delivery as always from Facewest.
Used them in anger for the first time last weekend and they fit and function really well. General build quality and attention to detail is of the usual high ME standard and they look like they should last many years
Truly excellent. I bought these after reading other positive reviews about the slim fit and 'stiffness' of material that helps them stay in place. My only concern was that having a zip and velcro would be too 'fussy'. But to my surprise, I have found that I actually prefer having both. I use themin all conditions and all weathers and they have performed brilliantly. Breath-ability is good everywhere except the heavier denier material. But, that is probably to be expected as these patches are mainly for protection and as such have performed superbly, only giving way to a self inflicted crampon attack!! Overall, the fit, size, length and adjustment is spot on. For the money, I think these are the best gaiters on the market. I have actually bought a spare pair for when I need replacements. This works out cheaper than getting them repaired too. Definitely recommend.
