Hillsound Armadillo LT Gaiter
Whether you are day-hiking, backpacking, hunting, cross-country skiing or snowshoeing in the front or backcountry - Armadillo LT is a solid gaiter choice for year-round use. They were designed for outdoor enthusiasts who are looking for a lightweight and durable outer or mid-layer to keep snow, rain, mud, scree, rocks, debris, dust and leeches out of bo ots / footwear and socks and to save your lower legs from brushy conditions. We know how important it is to have gear that is functional without compromising your comfort level which is why our design and material choices are so important.
Armadillo LT, consists of a waterproof and breathable upper made of Flexia 3.0, three-layer fabric that is contour-fitting and lightweight. This stretch fabric ensures a snug fit that won't pinch or fall down and won't scuff in between your legs. The lower cuff is a 1000 denier and high-density nylon, providing supreme protection from the elements.

Flexia 3.0 is a three layer waterproof/breathable ripstop fabric used on Hillsound's Armadillo LT and Super Armadillo gaiters. The ripstop weave limits the impact of tears and rips and has a higher strength to weight ratio compared to standard weave. The synthetic fibres (nylon and spandex) give the benefit of two-way stretch (in the case with our gaiters, contour-fit around the calves). Flexia 3.0 also has a C6 DWR finish, which gives the face a water and stain resistant finish and is durable for up to 50 washes.
YKK AquaGuard water repellent zippers are used on all Hillsound gaiters. The best of its kind in terms of durability and preventing debris as well as moisture from entering the gaiter. YKK is a globally renowned brand who stands for innovation and high quality.
