These gators are only an inch higher than my boots and should not be bought for protection on upper shins. They did help keep my boots dry and prevented mud and pebbles from getting in the top.
I would recommend this product.

I originally purchased Mountain Hardwear's Seta Gaiters but within the span of a few months and a couple hundred trail miles I broke the zipper on two different pairs. The fine gauge zipper just couldn't hold up to the tough SoCal chaparral or the granite scree of the Sierra or San Jacinto Mountains.
Mountain Hardwear's warranty gurus let me exchange them for the Scree Gaiters. The best part about the Scree's, no moving parts! (e.g. no zippers). This simplicity of design made for many trouble free trail miles and the extra height compared to the Seta's is much appreciated on those off-route bushwhacks. Also, these were, by far, the lightest gaiters (weight & feel) of any I've worn - even lighter (and tougher) than the "**" Terra Gaiters from years ago (now discontinued).
I'd recommend them for summer hiking anywhere and shoulder season (spring/fall) hiking at higher elevations like the Sierras.
Mountain Hardwear truly hit a home run with these gaiters!
I would recommend this product.

I bought these summer gaiters to keep debris out of my mid high summer boots. When winter hiking however I have found I really like the shorter/lighter boots as long as there is no snow. Well the last two hikes I have been on I was surprised by snow. Without these lightweight gaiters I would have had very wet/cold feet. I have used the toe hook and under arch elastic string and even after "postholing" for 4 hours, the gaiters stay in place. I haven't yet mounted the hook and loop heel attachment. Postholing is walking on snow that has a hard crust so that every couple steps you break through to the softer snow and have to pull your leg out of the hole. You don't plan to go postholing on a hike.
