    I still use a pair of the old kiwi made huntecs, looking a little worse for wear though. Would love to find another pair. They made good quality gear back then. Still have a kiwi huntec bivvy and fly. Good gear.

    Update !!!

    Sounds like only Blue and Red in Stock
    They had not updated their "in stock" supply - and was showing above three available :-(

    So hang fire until I get confirmation of what's available
    End of their season special means I get good price - but also can be a supply issue in size and or models available
    Also saying will check another Store outlet - so back later

    Make sure they have genuine YKK zips so that they can be easily repaired when the zips wear out, cos they will. But looks like a decent pair of gaiters.

    I vote everyone gets red to make @Sarvo job easier.... as that's what I'd chose knowing insects like blue

    Made from Oxford-Cordura (PU) 1000D fabric (350 g / m²), treated with water-repellent impregnation. Thanks to the special interweaving of the fibers and the reinforced yarn, the material becomes resistant to wear and tear.

    Cool idea. I use lacing wire. And when I boil the billy over a fire I often hang it with the wire from my gaiters.
