Gravel Guards



Gaiters are a shield around your lower leg and ankle that keeps all the bits out of your boots. Gaiters protect you from debris, wild weather, and add protection from cuts and scrapes to your lower legs.

Ankle gaiters offer protection from the bottom of your trousers to the top of your footwear. Often used for weather that isn’t too harsh or wet. Great for keeping all the bits out of your boots and adds protection from cuts and scrapes to your lower legs.

Mid-length gaiters like our Gravel Guards sit around calf length. These are great for rainy days, keeping gravel grit and rain out of your boots. debris and rain out of your boots. 

Full-length gaiters like our Basin gaiters offer the ultimate protection and comfort while out on hardcore expeditions. Protecting you from harsh vegetation, rugged terrain, water and wet conditions.

Simply put, Gaiter wires need to be fitted to the boot. Everyone’s boots are a little different, so it can be very difficult to get a gaiter wire that fits all boots properly with each size gaiter. 

Having separate Gaiter wires allows you to get the best performance out of your gaiters by having them properly fit both you and your boots.

Your wire length depends on three things: the type of boot, the size of the gaiter, and your legs. To determine the best length for your needs, start by putting your gaiter on your boot and then measure from one webbing tab that holds the wire, following down under the boot to the webbing tab on the opposite side.

Please remember that gaiters will not fit in the same position on every boot. Lightweight boots are less bulky than a high country or alpine boot; this will affect how high the gaiter sits on the boot.

Snake Gaiters

Snake gaiters are built much like a typical knee-high gaiter. However, they include additional layers of protection to aid in the resistance to fang bites from snakes. 

The Venom Gaiter V2has been built to the same high standard as the extremely popular Basin Gaiter, but with the added Fang Shield membrane.

The Fang Shield offers a protective layer that was developed and tested on snake fangs from a variety of Australian species. 

The Venom gaiter V2 is made with a double-stitched three-layer fabric. Starting with a hardy outer layer for durability and stab protection. Beneath this is the Fang Shield membrane, an ultra-lightweight weave comprised of mixed fibres creating incredible fang resistance. With the internal layer being the hardwearing, 500d Nylon Oxford.

Wearing snake gaiters is crucial for enhancing your safety during outdoor expeditions. Snakes, being unpredictable creatures, pose a significant threat and can inflict fatal damage on humans. To mitigate this risk, it is essential to take every precaution to safeguard yourself.

While sample tests have shown a 0% fang penetration rate from various snake species, it's important to note that no guarantee exists that the wearer will not be bitten. Therefore, snake gaiters, such as the Venom Gaiters V2, provide an additional layer of protection. They are designed with meticulous care, incorporating features like a Fang Shield membrane and a double-stitched three-layer fabric.

Venom Gaiters complement other safety measures, such as wearing thick leather boots and trousers that are resistant to penetration. By integrating snake gaiters into your outdoor gear, you significantly reduce the risk of snake bites and enhance your overall safety during expeditions.
