PRODUCT NEWS: Alpkit Colca and Kantju Gaiters

Colca Hiking Gaiter

Waterproof and breathable high-cut gaiters for keeping out the elements and debris when hiking, trekking, and backpacking.

'Come rain or shine'. There's something satisfying about really really meaning it, about waking up in the morning and heading out whatever the weather. The Colca waterproof gaiters were designed to keep you protected from the elements on those wet days out in the hills. They save your regular trousers from getting a soaking or covered in mud, allowing you to cut down on your washing or pack less for a longer trip.

Colca Black, 26 kb

Colca Blue, 37 kb

The 3 layer waterproof and breathable upper keeps your legs dry without overheating, with a tough Cordura lower that reinforces against abrasion. A slightly tapered cut gives a slim fit over your boots to avoid snagging.

Front Velcro closure makes the Colca easy to put on and are held comfortably in place by an alloy tension lock top adjustor, a stainless-steel lace hook, and TPU underfoot strap – bar-tacked for durability. All metal components are corrosion resistant, and if you wear through the underfoot strap we can replace it for you, so you can keep racking up the miles.

Stretchy and breathable running gaiters for reducing blisters and hot spots when out on the trail.

Kantju running gaiters keep debris, stones, mud, and other bits of trail out of your shoes to prevent hot spots and blisters without disrupting your flow.
