Two years ago Klags gifted me a used pair of the Little Presents Wet Gaiters.
Pretty neat. they offer some nice insulation and knee protection for wet wading.
They also provide some protection of your clothing or waders, both on the river and in transit.
The gaiters got me thinking about knee protectionand I decided to pull the trigger on some knee pads. I decided to go with a sailing pad as I figured they might be the best direction considering they are also exposed to water and in most cases salt water. Anything that can survive the salt water environment…is a pretty robust product.
so I bought these…for about $45 on amazon. I bought the large to fit over my wading pants.
They are pretty awesome. They offer more comfort than the gaiters. they are very Lightweight. They do not slip around much even over waders.
I thought I would post it up as they are a very accessible alternative to the Little Presents Wet Gaiters.
The only negative is that they are a tube so they need to slide on. This is a mild inconvenience . Once on there are little velcro tabs to tighten them into position.
