Gday Hunty
sorry can't help you with the gaters - we don't have any grass over here, but what is that brick you've got in your avatar??
cheers

Lashed out and bought myself a new set of gaiters the other day off Fleabay. I finally admitted to myself that My old canvas military jobs had passed their use by date. 28years is not too bad I suppose.
Bought a set of Sea To Summit Quagmire eVents. Made out of some trendy new stuff and are lightweight and go from ankle to just below the knee. They seem ok and will keep out most spiky grasses. Leeches can still get under them and am not sure that they would stop a determined king brown but they are not bad for 65 bucks. and are much cooler than leather, also are waterproof.

Tried my old bush walking ones recently, only to find loads of metal fasteners.

Any ideas on suppliers of appropriate gear would be useful please.

Thanks

Mike

Just 2 small studs near the toe end. Do not affect my Infinum beyond 1.5 foot but might cause some minor noise in the Minelabs PIs, not sure of that though.

Smile Hi Mike I just bought a pair of 14 oz canvas ones no metal for $70. from goanna gold detecting at greta. I have worn them the last few days in the heat & found them very comfortable & appear reasonably tough but fortunately I didnt get to test them against a snake bite, but am fairly confident they would do the job.

Can also attest to their great Weekends away.
