Contrail bootstrap

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.

Stone Glacier gaiters are proudly made in the USA. Not only do we manufacture our products in the United States but where applicable we also use materials and components that are Made in the USA. Our Head Quarters shop is located in Bozeman, MT where all Stone Glacier products are assembled, inspected, packaged and shipped by Stone Glacier employees.
