TurtleSkin SnakeArmor Snake Gaiters

TurtleSkin SnakeArmor Snake Gaiters

TurtleSkin SnakeArmor Snake Gaiters are constructed from a super-tight patented weave of high-strength ballistic fibers and polyester. Many brands of snake gaiters are heavy, stiff, and bulky, but at 6 ounces each, these gaiters are lighter in weight than most others on the market, yet are tested to repel even large rattlesnakes. And the gaiters fold compactly to approx. 8 x 8 x 2 inches for backpacking or to save storage space.

Here's what customers have to say:

"I wanted to thank you for such a high quality product. I was attracted to them because I live in one of the hottest places in the USA -- Bullhead City, AZ. The snake season is long and the temps can be brutual during much of it. The first spring after I bought them I went turkey hunting in Seligman, AZ. I felt a thump on my leg just above the ankle, looked down, and realized I had been struck by what I think was a mohave green. I was grateful to see only a small wet spot on the outside of the gaiter, but no penetration marks."

"My gaiters get at least 40 days of use per season and after 4 years, the cords and zippers function like new and the fabric shoes no signs of wear. I expect to use them for many bird hunting seasons to come."

When Should You Wear Snake Gaiters?

As humans at the top of the food chain, we sometimes feel invincible versus the other creatures that inhabit the places where we live and play. But there are still some creatures that can pose a threat. Snakes are one of these creatures. Many snakes are harmless and will go out of their way to avoid people, but some snakes are aggressive when they sense a potential challenge. You may encounter poisonous snakes in unlikely places such as your swimming pool. They also like to live within piles of wood, and they can be found in the back corners of neglected storage spaces and garages. Snakes can inhabit most any outdoor space in the woods or desert. If you know you will be venturing into an area where snakes are present, you can protect yourself with snake gaiters — the best layer of defense against deadly fangs!

Snake gaiters are worn over pants and always with thick boots or shoes that fangs can't penetrate. Gaiters protect roughly from your ankle to your knee.  Many gaiters are made from a waterproof material, and you can buy longer versions called Snake Chaps that cover from your ankle to your hip. Many people also wear snake boots to prevent snake bites.

You should wear gaiters whenever you visit areas where snakes live. Many southern and western states, especially Texas, Arizona, Nevada, California, and more, are home to a wide variety of poisonous snakes such as rattlers. You cannot always easily identify a poisonous snake by sight, so it is better to treat ALL snakes as if their bite is deadly.  Even if you are aware of the differences, the subtle signs may not be apparent from a distance. As such, even if you are wearing snake bite protection, it is best to avoid an interaction with a snake.
