Outdoor Research/ Amazon / Money Talks News
One way to stay warm and dry when cross-country skiing, snowshoeing or winter hiking is to attach a pair of gaiters to your boot/shoe and pants to block the wet stuff. They’re simple to wear and easy to transport. Plus they keep that snow off your ankles and feet. You’ll find a large selection at L.L. Bean, Amazon and REI, starting at about $25. REI also offers this handy guide to choosing the right type.
