The all-new SQ2 Alpine Gaiter incorporates our patent pending Contrail™ Bootstrap. Fully replaceable and constructed of high-strength Dyneema® rope, the Contrail™ Bootstrap is unlike anything else on the market. With a pin-less buckle, 3-Layer Ripstop Hydrashield™ upper, and a durable X-Pac™ lower with a unique calf adjustment system for a perfect fit, this gaiter is sure to be the last you will ever need to buy.
The patent pending Contrail™ Bootstrap system uses ultra high strength Dyneema® rope, a pinless heavy-duty aluminum buckle, and unique nylon webbing adjustment design. The Dyneema® rope has a breaking strength of 1600 pounds, extremely cut-resistant, with the wear resistance of steel. Pair this with a pin-less aluminum buckle, and you have a replaceable bootstrap that will likely never need to be replaced for the life of the gaiter.
Using a “V” webbing attachment on the instep of the gaiter, the tension of the bootstrap is spread wider on the gaiter and moves the bar tacks from the high wear center area of the instep. This increases both attachment strength and wear resistance.
The SQ2 Gaiter has a Velcro® adjustment design that allows the gaiter to be sized to the exact circumference of the calf. This creates a tight fit that can be adjusted with the number of layers worn. The top nylon webbing strap around the calf has a piece of elastic integrated into the length allowing the strap to maintain a constant tension and seal at the top of the gaiter the full range of motion, keeping snow and debris out of the gaiter. Add a waterproof breathable upper and double layer X-Pac™ waterproof lower, and you have durable weatherproof protection.
Fully replaceable and constructed of high-strength Dyneema® braided rope, the Contrail™ Bootstrap performs unlike anything else on the market.
Dyneema® is 15x stronger than steel at the same weight, with a tensile strength up to 43 cN/dtex. As well as its extraordinary strength, Dyneema® excels in cut and abrasion resistance and has a high resistance to chemicals and UV. Dyneema® is so light that it floats on water and furthermore has a very high modulus (resistance against deformation).
Proven in the mountains, HydraShield™ technology excels in the most unfavorable weather conditions. Waterproof, windproof and breathable, HydraShield™ textiles are profoundly durable while also remaining lightweight and packable.
HydraShield™ technology prevents rain and snow from passing through to your body while transporting water vapors from sweat to the exterior of the textile during high exertion activities. This transfusion process ensures you stay warm and dry in all wet weather conditions.
Our proprietary line of waterproof breathable textiles, HydraShield™, launched last year with a 3-Layer textile designed for the ultimate in durability and packability. This year we have expanded the HydraShield™ line to include HydraShield™ SS, a waterproof breathable soft-shell, and HydraShield™ RS, a rip-stop version for increased durability in high wear pieces, such as our all new SQ2 Alpine Gaiter.
The lower of the SQ2 Alpine Gaiter is constructed from durable X-Pac™ material that can stand up to harsh abrasion while also providing waterproof protection.
