Purchased as part of silt barrier combo in use with some neoprene ankle wraps. Product has a Hypalon® instep strap that someone really thought through the design, but not for me. By the end of a one-day trip the strap was shredded (by underwater logs, debris) and no longer buckled. A simple replaceable velcro strap would have been preferable.
Rest of the product was marvelous ... upper buckles are great ... hold the gaiter firmly above the calf even without pant legs.
Product worked well at keeping out most of the silt and sand, even in calf-deep muck and mire.
