I've used these gaiters for years and they've held up to continual abuse - walking through all sorts of trash cover, getting stuck in brambles ad gorse, etc. I've stood in running water and still been dry. I re-proof them occasionally and they're still perfect.
Used for More than 2 years
I’ve had these for about 8/9 years now and they’ve had some serious abuse, brambles, gorse, bracken, heather they’ve been soaked thru and still hold up to the abuse, the stainless wire stirrup is far better than any other that breaks under hard wear
A great product, shame they do not fit!!
Used for 2 week or less
I've been looking for a good set of gaiters for a long time and in these Solognac I thought I had found them. The gaiters are tough, well made, and a good quality but they do not fit! I can zip up the sides but then couldn't get the bottom strap buckled. If I buckled the bottom strap I couldn't get the gaiter zipped up over my Karrimor walking boots. And, this was in the front room at home, if you had to put them on outdoors when wet & muddy you wouldn't have a prayer. Sadly this one size fit gaiter is far too small for an average guy like myself, 5'10", size 10 boots, and average calf muscle size. Come on Solognas give us gaiters that fit and stop us using inferior products. I emailed Decathlon highlighting the problems, with pictures, but just got the standard return email and no response to the issues I've raised. The gaiters have been returned, sadly, for a full refund in due course.
Response of the brand
Thanks for the review about the Supertrack gaiters. I understand the fitting problem. We designed a new pair of gaiters, a bit less resistant as this one, but in big size, Crosshunt 500 gaiters. You should be satisfied by this one. You can go to your Decathlon store and ask for an exchange.
All the best

Waterproof & well made
Used for 3 to 8 weeks
These gaiters are super. Have used them for 2 weeks now and they have kept my legs bone dry. I can see how if you had bigger or smaller calves than average, these probably wouldn't fit. I don't think the poor reviews reflect the quality of the gaiters, but just the fact that they don't fit some people.
