Not the anti-snake kind, just the ones that keep thorns, seeds and maybe ticks out of your boots and socks.

Any suggestions?

Boyt Safari gaiters seem popular with PHs over in Africa. For some time, I wore the gaiters made by Texas Hunt Company(?), but now I own 2 sets of Boyts, which I like much better. MidwayUSA has them, I believe, and for a good price.

Last time I was in Africa, my PH said he was having a hard time finding the Boyts, and his were getting thread-bare, so I bought several pair and gave a set to the PH.

Have a set from cabelas that are made well. Keep an eye on them and they will go 30-40% off when on sale.

I'll pick up a pair of the Boyts with my next Midway order. Thanks for the input everyone.

Kennetrek makes a good one. For mountain type hunting it is one of the more important pieces of gear in my opinion.
