Who makes the best waterproof hunting gaiters?
You want them quiet and waterproof if there is such a thing.
Going to Colorado on an elk hunt donít want wet boots or pants.
I was looking at Kuiu Yukons or Storms what else you got?

I bought a pair of waxed canvas gaiters and as long as you keep them waxed, they are 100% water proof. They were a lot cheaper than either of the brands you listed, even coming from Scotland.

Not sure I’d call any of them quiet. I really like my stone glacier gaiters though

I bought the Kuiu Yukon gaiters. I have not used them yet, but they are heavy duty, some what quiet and look to be made really well. They stretch and fit well; I like that. I will put them to the test next month in Colorado and let everyone know how they did.

Rockslide has a ton of comparisons on this topic.

I have the Kuius and they have worked very well. Outdoor Research makes some good ones as well.

Skip the First Lite gaiters, I blew through the straps on two sets. Using Sitka gaiters now as they have the wire strap, they performed well in Colorado last week. For a tall gaiter, I have the Outdoor Research but they are a bit bulky and loud.
