‘Nothing will scupper your performance on a desert run more than having trashed feet. Having raced (and won) in deserts all over the World I know from firsthand experience how important keeping sand out of your shoes is. There is only one gaiter which can, in my experience, guarantee this and this is the only gaiter I would ever consider using. Made in Scotland to a design unchanged in 10 years, the Sandbaggers gaiters are simply World class and I heartily recommend them.’
Our World famous (design protected) Sandbaggers Desert Gaiters remain the only gaiters in the World to offer 100% protection from sand for those racing or trekking in the desert. These are vital pieces of kit for anyone venturing into the desert. We have supplied thousands of these gaiters over the years to MDS racers, trekkers and people working in sandy deserts.
The gaiters are made from extremely lightweight high quality ripstop nylon (aka parachute silk). They feature a double toggle-tie system which allows them to be comfortably secured below the knee.
The only place you can buy these in the World is here, and if you wish to buy fitted gaiters you can do so here below. All our gaiters are proudly made in Scotland to the highest standards, and will not let you down.
Proper fitting of the gaiters is absolutely essential. This should be carried out by a cobbler and, if you are unable to find one locally, we do offer a fitting service. This can be booked in below, with a lead time of approximately 72 hours.
