    gaiters for kids...

    Hi all my wee girl is adamant she's going hunting with me...I have struggled to find a pair of boots her size and have relented and bought a cheapy pair from the warehouse..they should do for a start....what I'm really finding hard to source is a pair of gaiters suitable for a 6 1/2 year old.....anyone know where I can get some or someone who could make some...
    Cheers

    Cut the feet off some kids rugby socks or the sleeves off an old jacket?

    Cut some bits of sleeve off an old wetsuit for neoprene kiddy gaiters might work?

    What size boot does she fit? We may have a pair here that my boy has outgrown, I stalk trade me and grab Keens, etc. when they come up cheap, even if a size of two too big.
    I had some canvas puttees made for him, they don't keep water out too well but great for stones etc.

    Hey Roktoy she's in a size 1 thinking bout getting some made only needs to keep shit out like Spaniards and matagauri and of course barley seed. Not too many damp spots up where I usually hunt....bought a quad bike last year and have been kitting it out to suit my needs....she's an oldy but goody.. bought mostly for easier access for me and the kids being that my legs buggered and the kids are only wee...thanks to you others have thought about the wetsuit thing but dont have one....might contact marie at k2 see wat she can offer thanks all

    I'll have a look and see if we have any that size.

    This trader made the ones for my boy, I asked for her to put a front hook on. I gave her my sons leg measurements and she made then to fit.
    The other options I considered were buying cheap neoprene ones and cutting them to fit, and resewing. Or a set of running gaiters like these

    matagouri and spaniards........ a set of shin pads work a treat and they keep gaiters up really well too.

    Not bad for the price, not tried them yet to test for waterproofness. But they look reasonably well made for the price and fleece lined too. Pic of them on my boy

    AlpinehunterO, I can vouch for the ones made in Rakaia, top product, top service. They are so well made you will need to keep finding kids to wear them out
