Protect your lower legs from rattlesnakes, cacti, and other dangers while in the desert or woods. The Snake Guardz brand of snake gaiters are lightweight (a pair of size large weighs 1 pound and 9 ounces) and are cool, contoured to fit, and feature a unique design that allows air circulation between your leg and the snake gaiter. Snake Guardz are snake proof up to 17 inches and utilize a unique toe cover which protects the laces of your boot or shoe (if struck, you definitely don't want snake fangs becoming entangled in your laces!). This means you have 12 inches of snake bite protection (knee to ankle) with an additional 5 inches of protection that go over the top of your boot. Wear with thick leather shoes or boots for guaranteed protection against rattlesnakes and other poisonous vipers. Snake proof polycarbonate and acrylic inserts have been needle puncture tested based on ASTM F1342.05 with no penetration. Nylon and/or polyester material covering the inserts is water resistant so fang venom does not soak into the material. Meets the California Technical Bulletin #117, Section E, CS-191-53 Flame Retardant. Crackshot brand products carry a 2 year limited warranty for manufacturer defects only for non-commercial use. Snake Guards keep you safe while in the desert or woods! Made in the USA.
