I don't trust any other company to make a gaiter. Mine are from the nineties, and were given to me by my Dad. In addition to his mileage, I've put another 1,000+ miles on them. They're not shiny-new anymore, but they are still 100% functional, and I'm constantly amazed that the strap underfoot hasn't broken after all the wear.

My only critique: the metal hook on the front is a bit sharp, and after wearing them for hundreds of miles in the same place, it can cut into and break the shoelace, but if you're prepared, you should have extra shoelaces or p-cord, so not a huge deal.

These are also great for ice climbing, and will prevent you from shredding your expensive pants with crampons.

I wore my old OR gators completely out so I got these. I really, really want to like them. However, they just seem too big, width-wise. I ordered the XL because that's what my last ones were. Maybe the Expedition gators are bigger for more layers/bigger boots? If so I think it should say that in the description, The gators aren't totally waterproof when there is room for the moisture to creep in. Plus I get the swooshing noise when I walk.

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

This is my second pair. My second pair in 18 YEARS!!!!. My last pair died a horrible crampon death after 17 years of abuse. You will not regret buying these. Size is true and durability is beyond doubt.
DO IT!!

Work perfectly as intended

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

Perfect gaiters for use with my La Sportiva Nepal mountaineering boots. Perfectly tailored to fit over boots and pants (softshell and gore-tex worn at the same time) without any issues putting them on.

Burly Gaiters.

By 

from US

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

These gaiters should be called the "Burly SOBs" I used these all summer in the PNW on the mountains and not once did the tear from my crampons. They are very tough, easy to put on, and don't let snow in if you put them on right. The only this the worries me is how long the metal clasp will last. I have a bunch of scratches on it and some pretty deep ones at that. Overall these are some awesome gaiters but depending on what you are doing could be a little overkill.

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

Plain and simple, there is no better gaiter on the market. I had mine for 12 years before they died a horrible crampon death. I just couldn't kill them no matter how hard I tried. And I tried! All 48 4000 footers in NH in the winter, countless other hikes in the Whites, shoveling and snowblowing, you name they saw it. I promise you WILL NOT be sorry.
I'm about to order my second pair.

Essential Gear - Outstanding

By 

from CA

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

I've had these gaiters for years. If my boots go on, these go over them. Put more miles on these than I care to count. I've worn them out, cleaned 'em up, and they haven't failed me yet. They just keep going. Keeps snow, ice, mud, scree, water, etc. out of my boots. Worn them dove hunting in shorts in 100 degree Texas heat, to near zero temps in the back country snow. These gaiters are an essential piece of backcountry gear for me.

Burly gaitors

By

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

I have used Expedition Crocs for over 3 years working as a Wilderness Ranger in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. The Bob gets all kinds of weather deep snow, mud, constant stream fording, crossing scree fields, etc., and these crocs have held up to ALL abuse. Wash them off and they look almost new.

Only issue is they get HOT if the sun is out. It is enough to notice. My wish for the OR dev team is for a Coyote colored pair that doesn't absorb as much sun heat. Otherwise there is nothing bad to say about these crocs. Worth the investment and will last forever.

Better later than never!

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

I've not used gaiters when hiking before, but finally decided to give them a try, since I was trying to get out more and didn't want the weather to hold me back. Now that I've used them, I keep thinking to myself why I waited so long. These gaiters are easy to throw on and take off and the keep my legs and boots so much dryer and cleaner. When I get back to the car, I can pull the gaiters off, shake them clean and throw them in back of the car. My pants are still clean enough I can walk in somewhere and get a bite to eat.

Comments about Outdoor Research Men's Expedition Crocodiles - Black M:

I worked as a snowmaker building a racecourse at Beaver Creek this season. You don't go into varying conditions like ice and waist deep snow without quality gear that you never have to second guess. These are way more rugged than any other product on the market.
