Off to CYB for Monday, last we went it rained a lot, we still had a great time and the trails were fine, but I can’t stand wet feet.
Monday looks like rain , so I thought I might wear some gaiters, any reason why this is a shit idea?
Having struggled to get winter boots which fit my wide feet, I’ve resorted to Yeti gaiters on my normal shoes this winter, and it works a treat. The only downside* is that they’re sized to go over bulky boots, so there’s more fabric than necessary flapping around the ankles unless you take them in a bit. Which may or may not bother you.
*Apart from offending the fashion police, obviously. 😀
I use Pearl Izumi Amfib bib tights – they are water resistant (like a softshell) and have a built in gaiter that goes over the top cuff of your winter boots (and stays there) so water runs over the outside. No daft walking gaiters required.
