Description

Gaiters to German WW2 ankle-boots. A model with the crescent-shaped reinforcements appeared during of the war. There is also a rigid insert in the middle so that the gaiters do not wrinkle when worn. The pre-war gaiters did not have such reinforcements, but the bottom of the early gaiters was reinforced with a leather stripe.

Steel buckles are installed, painted in standard (since 1940) matt gray for metal hardware. The buckle does not have a roller, which is also a feature of military-time products, when industry began to save on all sorts of details. Thick reliable tarp. Stamped RB.Nr. with manufacturer code and the size. Price for a pair (set for 1 person).

How to choose the size?

You need to put on shoes, trousers and measure the circumference of the leg right above the boot (on top of clothes!). For measurement, a flexible meter or belt (rope) is suitable, which must be tightened as tight as you are going to wear gaiters. Gaiters are regulated by leather straps with just 3 holes, so it is very important that the resulting circumference hits one of the spaces suggested in the table. Otherwise, the gaiters will be small or, even worse, large (they will hang out).
