Gaiters are a type of leggings that cover the lower leg and ankle. They can be made from leather, cloth or nylon. The purpose is to protect your legs from mud, snow and other elements while you’re hiking or hunting in rough terrain. In addition to keeping out debris they also keep water away from your boots which helps prevent blisters on long hikes through wet areas such as swamps or marshes where there may not be dry ground for miles at a time.
