the everything gaiter on 11/05/2011 07:18:27 MDT Print View

Just thinking of a new project. Our group has been known to walk through some rough areas. A few of them have gotten pretty scratched up - one person’s shin ended up badly infected and had to go on antibiotics.

I am contemplating making a lightweight (relative for the project) tall gaiter with a front slot that you can slide in different materials for strength and function - kind of like combining a soccer shin guard with a gaiter. Could even be a base gaiter with a way of adding different front materials.

Found nothing on my search of this site and google.


Any ideas? Patterns as a starting point?


Thanks,

Dave

I have not handled, or used these my self, but you might get some ideas from orienteering gaiters.

Thanks Scott,

Looks like what I am looking for may already be available. I guess you need to know what to Google.

Dave.

P.S. I think that I have enough projects to keep me busy for the entire winter
