Why We Love It
The Distance Gaiter provides ultralight protection on mountain runs with a design that integrates with running shoes. By combining optimal breathability with protection, the Distance Gaiter keeps you moving through varying terrain on the trail.
Where We Use It
Ultimate protection for trail running in varying terrain.
Scramble across scree, navigate overgrowth, and maneuver ridge lines with the Distance Gaiter from Black Diamond. Made with stretchy, breathable material, these gaiters will protect your ankles as you rack up the miles in alpine or desert environments. An instep strap and lace loop secure the gaiters tightly to your running shoes for a close fit that will keep dust, mud, pebbles, and shrubs out. More than just protection from varying terrain, the hook-and-loop closure of the Distance Gaiter wraps around the ankle like a warm hug from an old friend.
