In our project on Lightweight Footwear Systems for Snow Travel (to be published soon), we were looking for the lightest gaiter we could find that also performed well over snowshoeing and snow hiking footwear. We found the lightest one in the Montbell Stretch Gaiter, but its fit depends on the shoe type and size.
