Outdoor Accessories FAQs

What are gaiters used for?

Gaiters are used to protect your lower leg from moisture and debris when out hiking or walking. They’re also great for keeping you warm and dry under rainy or snowy conditions.

How do you wear gaiters?

Always put your gaiters on the outside of your trouser leg, placing the stirrup strap under your walking boots, towards the front of the heel. Once you’ve done this, carefully zip your gaiters up and fasten any straps. Finally, adjust the cord at the top and make sure your gaiters feel snug and comfortable, but not tight and restrictive.

What are hiking walking sticks called?

Those walking sticks you see hikers using are actually called trekking or hiking poles and they’re basically ski poles with a handle on. They’re most often used in pairs, but you can also get something known as a hiking staff which is just one single pole.

Why do hikers use walking sticks?

Trekking or hiking poles are great for sharing the load of your weight evenly across your whole body. They can also help to protect your knees from the impact of walking and increase your walking speed too.

Can Wellington boots be washed?

Yes, they can and should be too! Carefully clean the outside of your wellies with a rag soaked in warm water with some washing up liquid. For your soles you can use a soft-bristled scrubbing brush. Once clean, make sure you rinse your wellies down well, dry with a towel and then apply some boot restorer and protective spray to protect the rubber and keep it supple and flexible.
