Desert gaiters are made from lightweight highly breathable sandproof material and are reinforced over the front of the toe for extra durability.
The gaiter is attached to the shoe by hook and loop fixing. The hook tape needs to be glued or sewn to the shoe as close to the midsole as possible to create a good seal. Pull gaiter on, put on shoe, then close.
It is quick and easy to release for adjusting laces during the day. If you are doing a desert race like Marathon des Sables / 4 Deserts series etc. then you need these gaiters.
The gaiter is made from a very tight weave sandproof material which maintains good breathability.
The toe area of the gaiter has a reinforced panel to give good durability when crossing rocky sections.
MADE IN THE FRENCH ALPS
We manufacture this Desert Gaiter at our HQ in the French Alps which helps to reduce the carbon footprint of the product. Things are complicated... we only manage to use 10% recycled material on this specialist product.
FIXING TO FOOTWEAR
Sand can and will get everywhere... The hook tape needs to be glued or sewn to the shoe as close to the midsole as possible to create a good seal and the gaiter needs to be firmly and smoothly attached for best protection.
