Lots of Reasons to Wear Gaiter Pods Trail & Mountain Running Gaiters

  • Keeps Sh*t out of your running shoes and socks, including debris, sticks, pebbles, rocks, and bugs.

  • Easy to wear, slip your foot into the gaiter, snap to your running shoe laces, and pull the gaiter down to attach to you shoe via included velcro. Ah, SNAP! Easy, peasy.

  • Ultramarathon-100 Mile tested. Gaiter Pods Gaiters have crossed the finish lines of some of the world’s toughest ultras, including the UTMB, Cruel Jewel, Vermont 100, and Transvulcania.

  • Unique snap attachment system fits running shoes, by clipping onto laces (as more shoe companies phase out hooks and given that most running shoes do not have hooks, this snap attachment system is practical and totally rocks); Snaps are CPSIA compliant (tested for lead and phthalates).

  • No metal hooks to rust or cut your fingers mid-race (yep, been there, done that)

  • They cover loose shoelace bits, reducing the chance of laces getting tangled or snagged

  • Fun, sporty, free-spirited designs

  • Flexible, stretchy fabric that moves with you every step, on and off the trail
