The basic idea is similar to a product called "dirty girl gaiters" I got a sewing machine before my PCT thru and made 3 pairs, which all were thoroughly worn out. I used spandex from a fabric store. For the rear atttachment, superglue some velcro to the (very clean) heel of your shoe. Sew the other velcro onto the rear of your gaiters (dont use velcro with an adhesive backing in your sewing machine!). I've found putting the loops on the shoe is better as it picks up less debris. This attachment will keep the gaiters on even as you posthole down the north side of glen pass.
