Al - the desert will destroy a pair of gaitors like that.

Actually, not.  Those gaiters have logged many a cross country mile in the desert with good effect.  A few loose threads and that's about it.

I agree with Al. The OR gaiters that I have (Crocodiles) are pretty tough, and I do a lot of off trail stuff. They are entirely suitable.

I won't hike off trail without them.  Much more resistant to things that stick and poke you than convertible pants or blue jeans, however, unto each their own.

PS OR gaiters have an infinite warranty.  If they ever fail, they will fix or replace.
