Snake Gaiters -worth it?

Post by kenjacobsen » Feb 24 2019 6:17 pm

Anyone ever try Snake Gaiters like these, and if so, are they worth the trouble?

Personally I've almost stepped on a rattler a couple times now, so I'm wondering.

Here's where I got mine, since Bezos is rich enough already:

They have more elaborate ones here:

The things feel bulletproof. I wear them loose and gravity keeps them over my high hiking boots.
I'm assuming rattlers can't bite through thick leather so I won't need that shoe-top protection the more expensive ones have.

ANOTHER one along the Elephant Mountain trail yesterday –coiled, rattler buzzing (you can see it behind it's 'neck'), and ready to strike.

These things are everywhere lately!
