Mountain Hardwear Ascent Stretch Air Perm Gaiter 2010

The Mountain Hardwear Ascent Stretch Air Perm Gaiter has a good tapered design, and the women’s version means a good fit; 4-way stretch air-permeable back panel allows airflow on legs; pinless buckle on underboot strap mean less faff. But the fabric is sweatier than some others; urethane boot strap is durable but very hard to adjust (I found it virtually impossible even with no gloves on).

The Mountain Hardwear Ascent Stretch Air Perm Gaiter is a comfy gaiter, but it can be a faff to fit for some people.
