I took 'Little Miss' (7) for her first hunt in May, She's been keen as to get back out, so I thought I'd better get her some decent footwear and some gaiters before this weekends return armed walk into the Tararuas.

I had a spare couple of hours last night so ....Hey Presto!
They're a (very rough) clone of my Markhor Gaiters (which I rate).

Being a bit smaller and faster than me she slipped through the thick stuff pretty well.
