From TGO:

The Berghaus GTX gaiter ought to be a bog-standard gaiter suitable for all, but a couple of elements put me off. First, without a zip to support it, the 2.5-inch velcro-style front fastening tends to gape slightly when your leg and foot flex, and snow clumps on the hook and loop. This is true of most Velcro-only front fastening gaiters. Second, the underfoot strap is adjusted from inside the gaiter. It keeps each strap from flapping and catching on crampons but it means you have to fully open the gaiter to make adjustments. Adjustment is also by Velco-style strip, and those strips are already starting to clog with mud. The Berghaus GTX Gaiter is split into a waterproof/breathable XCR Stretch calf/shin section and an area of tougher fabric around the boot for abrasion protection. That XCR extends down behind the ankle where abrasion protection is unnecessary thus improving breathability; I've experienced no condensation problems.

   Berghaus GTX Gaiter Reviews

  Reviewed by Phoebe (UK) on 2009-03-19:
General comments: You know how, when you're embarrassed you wish the gound would swallow you up? Well, what if the ground swallowing you up was actually the cause of your embarrassment? Seriously, every time I go out walking, I manage to find the deepest, wettest, muddiest bog and plunge my leg in up to thigh level. Happily I've invested in these Berghaus GTX gaiters. Made from durable, stretchy, breathable, waterproof Goretex XCR, they have been tested in many bogs, and each time have kept my feet nice and dry. I did wonder if the velcro front fastening would be enough to seal them securely on my leg, but I have had no problems as yet and often forget I'm even wearing them. I love the way the undefoot strap is Velcro-adjusted (cutting out the faff) and is inside the gaiter so it doesn't snag on any rocks - the draw closure also makes them easy to adjust.

Pros: These gaiters do exactly what they're supposed to. Also, they have a good underfoot strap - the weakness of many gaiters.

Cons: No complaints.

General comments: I've had these gaiters for a good couple of years now and I must say they pretty much do the job all year round. They've kept my feet dry 90% through muddy rambles in the dales to knee deep snow bashing. Perfectly useful and breathable under or over the waterproofs. Was originally worried about the velco system becoming less 'sticky' over the years but I don't seem to have any problems with that at all. The velcro makes them quick and easy to put on / take off without worrying about busting a zip, although sometimes it can be a little difficult to get the two sides to match up perfectly so that the preta button at the top fits, and there can sometimes be little uneven holes if you do them up wrongly so you have to be careful. I don't normally find this is a big problem though. The strap under the foot is pretty indestructible so no worries about wearing it down and cutting it on a rock. The only thing i would say is that it's a little difficult to tighten the strap once you're wearing them. The elastic at the top also stops them falling down.

Pros: A good all-round gaiter. Does what it says on the tin. And in my opinion it's price tag is generally at the bottom of the higher-performing range of gaiters.
