These traditionally designed gaiters are lined with ULTRA-GUARD,  a ProWearGear patented fabric technology which  provides premier protection at greater than NIJ Spike Level 3, Standard 0115.00. It is the protection of choice for a wide variety of spike, blade, slash threats and a host of animal, plant and environmental hazards. It protects from snakes, cholla and barrel cactus, masquite, HD needles, glass, dogs, barb and razor wire. Field tested, these gaiters are light, lean, mean, flexible and fire retardant. Lighter protection at NIJ 2 and NIJ 1 Spike Levels are available for less aggressive situations.
