    From Kuiu website. A mate bought some online over there and brought them back to nz for me. I have talked to them about sending stuff to nz. Shipping could be quite costly but they will do it. Also size range is a problem when your a small like me and the lowest they do is medium.

    Kuiu shipping is quite reasonable. 16USD for less than $100. Almost bought a pair last night but all gaiters are on back order.

    When i emailed them about shipping the lady i was talking to seemed to think it might be round 50USD. I would hazard a guess that she was just guessing though.

    For shipping it'll probably be worth using NZ post youshop. Works well
    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    So i gave mine a work out this weekend. Really comfy. Light and stay up well. I personally think the laces hook needs to be bigger. The dome at the bottom beside the hook had a tendency of coming undone. The bottom strap took a hiding and is looking unscathed which is good. Really good fit around my Haix and let in very little water. But i have managed to put a pin prick of a hole in it (i think from spaniards or matagouri) so will have to glue that before it becomes larger.

    Would i recommend them?

    Yes if doing tops work. What little bush stalking i did this weekend they were a little scratchy in low ferns when compared to my old huntech ones.
