ASI Snake Gaiters LITE



ASI Lightweight Snake Gaiters are proudly made in South Africa. They are flexible snake gaiters that weigh 220 grams each. The outer shell is made of 400 g/m2 Riptech™ material, which is water-resistant and designed to deal with the harsh climatic conditions experienced throughout Africa. The inner shell is made of two layers of DuPont™ (Kevlar® microfilament yarn). It is a very finely woven material that renders exceptional protection against fragmentation, with an anti-stab capability. These two layers are stitched into an inner casing of high-tenacity nylon (parachute material). The gaiters are one size fits all with a YKK® zip at the back. Each gaiter is adjustable at the back and has a loop for a shoelace to fit through on the underside.

The Lightweight Snake Gaiters have been tested against bites from the Puff Adder, Cape Cobra, Snouted Cobra and Black Mamba with no penetration during testing.

Ideal for hikers, birders, fly-fishermen, geologists, bush-clearing teams, hunters, and mountain bikers.

Available in green and black.
