Read here about the many uses and advantages of hunting gaiters.
An alternative for rubber boots
Instead of weatherproof rubber boots, many hunters perfer to wear firm hunting shoes and thus they additionally wear gaiters as a wrapper around their lower trouser legs. This combination has the advantage that the hunting shoe sits perfectly on the foot, providing both wearing comfort and good support for the joints. Gaiters take over the protective functions of the rubber boots and follow every movement.
As protection against rain and snow
In bad weather, while hunting or hiking, water proof gaiters protect against rain and fend off snow. Thanks to the gaiters none of the wetness or moistore caused by rain and snow can penetrate into the mountain or hunting boots. The lower end of the hunting trousers will remain dry.
As protection against thorns
Gaiters for hunting are predominantly fabricated from robust, tearproof material. As a beater, stalker or when seeking the kill hunters must often traverse rough terrain and densely grown thickets. In such situations hunting gaiters will protect you against thorns and spikey twigs. This will prevent injuries and slit trousers in the lower reaches of the leg.
Signal orange has become the predominant warning colour in hunting. This type of bright orange is visible for every marksman and beater whereas game will only be half aware of it as a grayscale tone. Some brand manufacturers have placed some orange details on the gaiters in order to provide additional safety.
As protection against ticks
Wearing gaiters has its uses not only during the hunting season in winter and autumn but also in summer. Gaiters protect against the obnoxious tick and keep gnats and midgets from biting in places that are otherwise the main territory of such creatures: the bit of leg showing between the end of the trousers and the beginning of the shoes.
