The wearing of gaiters reduces the risk from snake bites. As there is no current Australian Standard for gaiter design, we make no guarantees with respect to the same.

Well-fitting gaiters should sit snugly around the body of your boots to stop water and mud migrating up into your socks. To fit, first get the correct size. Then:
- Starting at the back, wrap a gaiter around your calf.
- Ensure the under-boot strap sits neatly in your instep and tighten to remove looseness. This will help to keep out water, debris and muck.
- Fasten the front hook to your laces.
- Securely fasten the hook-and-loop closure on the front of the shin.
- Repeat for other gaiter.
The upper is made from 500 gsm cotton canvas: it’s tough, durable and has good breathability. It brushes off the sticks, scrub and even snakes of an adventurous bushwalk, making it the perfect material for gaiters. The 750 denier Cordura® nylon used on the gaiters’ base gives excellent abrasion resistance and strength in a lightweight material. The two fabrics work together beautifully to create a heavy-duty tough-as set.
ONE PLANET gaiters are built for hard tracks. They are designed to give protection while allowing freedom of movement. The low-profile buckle on our under-boot strap is specifically designed to sit slim and secure while avoiding snags. It’s one of the many tiny but important details that will be appreciated in South-west Tassie (or the North Prom!), on snow-filled plains, soft sand and rutted tracks.
