Boot gaiters? Help please
« on: Sep 21, 2016, 08:40 PM »
Hi. I'm wondering where I can find some approval gaiter boots that are made out of fake leather and preferably black? I've tried my local stores and online and can't find what I'm looking for.

Most all gaiters are approveable as long as any logos are covered. All the gaiters I've seen are actual leather or some kind of thin rubber / plastic. Your best bet for black leather would be to search for millitary surplus. You can usually get Swiss and French surplus gaiters for decent prices.

Would these work?

These are what I used for my kit ^^ (the same as above):


I recently shorted them by one buckle by cutting off the top part for easier kitting up.  Also makes it easier on my ankles for running in kit.  See in kit below:

Fair warning I like to take pictures and I've written a novel, so be prepared for both.
