great guards -
By: Flyguy81 from Girard , IL
Nice guards if u don't have them built into your waders . Stay tight and stay attached to your boots ! They are worth the money !

These are a must have if you are purchasing the Endura stocking foot waders. Great product!
Used gravel guards 3 times and they worked very good . They are much easier to put on than my zippered ones.
Exactly the right product -

Out of the package, hooked to the laces and wrapped around my ankle. Couldn't have been easier, and after a day of wading in a freestone river never a rock or sand in my boots......Outstanding!

These are a must have item. Could be a little wider to go higher up the leg, I don't like too high a wading shoe, want them as light as could be so extra height would be better
Best I've found -

I had a pair of these and drove off with them on the top of my truck ...gone. Tried another brand but came back to these. They are the best I've found. Best part is the infinity hook-and-loop connection. They fit every boot and every foot and don't gap.

Efficiently keeps much gravel and mud from the inside of the wading boot.
Easy to put on -

This is my second pair of Orvis gravel guards the first pair are 20 years old, and the new one are much easier to put on and seem to be constructed heavier. Should out last the old pair.
Keeps the sand out -
By: Minnesnowta from Duluth, MN
Did great keeping sand and small rocks from washing into my wading boots. Used my wading boots once without them and I was knocking sand out of them for days.

I've tried others, and this is the one that I keep coming back to. The big advantages of the Orvis GGs are their effectiveness and the ease of putting them on, especially if you're standing on the bank of a stream with no place to sit. The hook and loop system is far supperior to any zipper system, and Orvis gets it right the first time with no bulges or gaps, top or bottom. My only suggestion for an ideal product is to change the color from a stark black to a more neutral, or lighter color -- gray or pale green would be better. What I'd really prefer would be a light swirled camo effect. I try to disguise my underwater presence as much as possible, often wearing my old Vietnam tiger stripe fatigue trousers, etc., when I can, but the stark look of the Orvis GGs spoils the effort. Please, guys? They're the best that I've found, out there, but they could be better.
