Gear Review: Dirty Girl GaitersUltralight, simple design for light-and-fast hiking
Dirty Girl Gaiters are feathery light, washable, durable and inexpensive. And, despite the name, they're not just for women or style-mongers. Over one hundred miles of hiking and running proved it for me. Text and photos by Dan Larson
Many trail runners and thru-hikers have found Dirty Girl Gaiters a great option for traveling light and fast in the backcountry. They're also hard to beat for weight at 1.2 oz. per pair (men's 10) and they pack much smaller than traditional gaiters.
