Moxie Gear Shin Gaiters

At the huge Outdoor Retailers Show in Salt Lake City I have the privilege of meeting Darren Clark, an adventure racer from Australia. He was showing people his Moxie Gear Shin Gaiters.

I have been a proponent of gaiters ever since I made my first pair of trail running gaiters out of athletic socks many years ago, before gaiters were being marketed to runners. I believe everyone who runs trails should consider wearing gaiters. So of course I was interested in Darren’s shin gaiters.

Moxie Gear offers two styles of gaiters – Ankle Gaiters and Shin Gaiters.

Their Moxie Ankle Gaiters are made like many others you have seen. They have a narrow strap that goes under the shoe’s arch and uses a quick release buckle system making them easy to put on and take off. The strap is made from a carbon infused material, which makes it more durable and resistant to wear – and is fully adjustable. An elastic section on the back of the gaiter helps it grip the shoe and prevent dirt from getting under the gaiter. A pair weighs 90 grams. They are available in black and grey.

Darren’s Moxie Shin Gaiters are lightweight and durable, made to protect your shins. They come in three height sizes, small, medium, and large; and all three sizes are available in three widths, slim fit, normal fit, and wide fit – based on your leg/calf size. There is a nice selection of 11 colors and patterns – something for everyone. The front of the gaiter have durable rip stop padded panels over the shin area with reflective striping, and a soft stretch lycra fabric around the calf, which gives a perfect fit. A full-length side zipper makes them easy and quick to put on and take off. They will withstand all types of weather and terrain conditions. A pair weighs just 130 grams. These are perfect for adventure racing, trail running, Cross Fit events, hiking and thru-hikes, and of course, races like the Barkley. They can save your shins when mountain biking too.

Darren has put the Moxie Gaiters in Amazon for ease of ordering and faster shipping. And yes, they are in Amazon Prime. At Darren’s Moxie Gear website, you can order combos packs of Ankle and Shin Gaiters. His website has complete sizing charts. If you order from his website, he can ship anywhere in the world.

Darren impressed me with his shin gaiters. These are a great item to add to your running, adventure racing, hiking, and mountain biking kits.
