If you are going to hit CO in June they are probably a good idea.  The South
San Juans are normal right now but the rest of the state has had
considerably higher than normal snowfall.  I have a pair of 12" Black
Diamond Gore Tex ones that are good for postholing.   The non-waterproof
ones are usually shorter and are designed more to keep stones out of your
shoes than snow.  


best wishes,

I'm down to gathering the last couple of pieces of my gear and I have been
wondering about wearing gaiters through Colorado. Some of the past posts
here suggested gaiters would be an excellent addition while traversing over
snow. There are waterproof and non-waterproof. I would think if your
investing in gaiters for snow travel you'd want the waterproof, which of
course are a bit pricier, but not by too much. What are some opinions? What
brands have people liked best? With the larger than normal snowpack, I think
they are a good investment and will help with the comfort.
