    I made these Gaiters for my husband. The bottoms of jeans were always getting soaked from the snow and rain. I found the pattern online from a store in Corvalis, Oregon. They were easy to make, but it still took about two weeks....LOL But if I would have stayed on them it probably would have only taken a day or two to complete.

    It is a waterproof shell with a canvas lining which I plan on spraying some waterproofing on them later today.

    Nice work! Gators are a MUST in wet weather, and these look great. What company did you get the pattern from?

    The other day I went outside to shovel snow for my dog and when I came back in my pants were wet and had my boots on, I walked thru snow drifts

    these would be awesome to make, thanks for the links

    oooh thanks for posting this. I've been using my xcountry skiing gaitors, but they are way too short. I have some Cordura left over from a table cover I made, now I know what I'm going to do with it!

    Cool. Your husband's stance looks like he might be a natural model.

    You did a great job on these. Not only will it keep is pantleg dry, it will also add extra warmth. Works like knee socks, only on the outside. :-)

    He wore them to see how they worked, if they sagged or got in the way.

    That is what he said, he came in and took them off.

    Nice job! I could use a pair, takes me about 8 mins to get from my car to my office building, and with all the rain we've been having the puddles are horrendous. My pants are always wet.

    The pattern is rather easy.

    Thanks everyone for the compliments.
