While we generally prefer a lightweight short gaiter for ultralight hiking, backpacking, and snowshoeing, when the snow gets deep a taller lightweight gaiter is in order. The Outdoor Research Cascadia Gaiter, made of Gore-Tex PacLite fabric, fills that need very well.
By Backpacking Light
Backpacking Light was founded in November of 2000 with the simple mission of promoting backcountry travel in lightweight style. We are based in the Northern Rockies with offices in Bozeman, Montana and Laramie, Wyoming, with educational and guided trekking programs offered in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness of Montana (Billings area) and Medicine Bow Mountains of Wyoming (Denver area).
