The names 'Cordura' and 'Gore Tex' have both become legendary among outdoor enthusiasts. Both have come to symbolize utter dependability in their respective fields. One item that has helped to nurture this reputation is the Outdoor Research Crocodile Gaiter. Equally legendary and nearly as famous, the Crocodile was the original high performance weather and mountain proof gaiter. The Crocodile hasn't changed much over the years because its design was spot on from the beginning. Besides having a triple bartacked Biothane webbing instep strap and an additional tab that holds down the front opening, this Cordura and Gore Tex masterpiece remains as it was in the beginning.
