Hillsound Armadillo LT Gaiters

Hillsound Armadillo LT Gaiters

image The Hillsound Armadillo LT Gaiters are made to provide affordable, high performance protection for outdoor enthusiasts. They are advertised as  ‘lightweight and breathable and guaranteed to keep your legs, socks, and feet dry’.  1000 denier nylon on the bottom half provides protection against scrapes and punctures from crampon spikes. The YKK zipper gives a contour fit that won’t fall down or need to be readjusted during activity. Breathable Flexia three-layer fabric on the upper half offers four-way stretch and ensures sweat moves away from the body. The boot-lace hook adds stability to the gaiter and ensures it won’t move off the shoe. The lower is a 1000D, high density nylon, providing supreme protection from the elements.  Like all Hillsound gaiters, the Armadillo LT comes with a lifetime warranty.

There is a lot of attention to detail around the zippers especially. The pull tabs have a loop big enough to use with gloves.  There is also a flap of material at the top that closes over the end of the zipper when the zipper closed.  At the bottom is a buckle that can be cinched tighter to help keep the gaiters snug to your boot.

We’ve had a very dry fall so far, but that will change soon enough.  I plan on using the Armadillo while hiking, snowshoeing and for my business, part of which is towing and recovery.   A lot of that recovery is pulling vehicles and snowmobiles out of the snow or off trails.   I’m sure these will get a good workout.  If they help keep my feet dry I’ll be really happy!
