Why do people blouse their pants when you can just stick your trousers into your socks and get on with your life? Combine that with long wellies and your legs are snake and tick proof for any berrypicking.

    I understand pants, and I understand boots, but I have NO idea what happens in between. Now I see mentions of "puttees" and gaiters and I like the concept but I don't know what's what and how it's used. Give me the most autistic rundown as possible pls.

      >puttees
      >gaiters
      Covers the gap between your pants and your boots. Its not really a complex concept. You buy some, you put 'em on when you need 'em or leave 'em off when you don't need 'em.
      You then get called names by zoomer-burger-gays who wish they weren't too brainwashed by Judeo-Sodomite conformist fashion to wear such practical and neat-looking stuff. At least on this chan, fren.

        I suppose you use puttees for the shorter boots. I guess the uses are slightly different? Gaiters seem better if you want protection against dust and other shit from entering your boots. Puttees seem more fit for the pants side of the problem.

          Back from another ban, yep. I spent my vacation studying the r u n e s.
          >shorter boots
          All the boots I use are mid-height ankle boots, incl. the Lowas shown with the gaiters. I don't know how gaiters and puttees would interface with tall boots - probably a lot less useful as this anon points out

          stuff to avoid if you want to blouse your pants
          >not wearing 8" boots. anything shorter than that and you won't get a good interface between blouse and boot cuff because it will have to extend too far down towards your ankle
          >don't blouse tight pants or jeans. you'll look like an idiot and it either won't accomplish anything or will come undone
          >try not to look like wannabe military. not a good look

          imo puttees and gaiters are stupid. puttees are elaborate leg wraps that were used to accomplish something akin to blousing with the heavy wool pants of a bygone era. unless you're a ww1 reenactor, don't bother. gaiters are for people who bought a mid rise hiking boot from rei only to realize it is simultaneously too low and loose around the cuff to keep out debris and too high for good ankle mobility

          The issued pants when I was in had elastic drawstrings, and we just ran the elastic around and under the boot itself. They wore out all the time obviously, but it was easy to replace. However, the highspeed Cryes didn't have that feature, and were made for medium sized humanoids, not Nordic tallbois, so I bought gaiters to go with that (and replace the rainpants that I never cared enough to go digging in my pack for anyway).
          >different uses
          I've only used the long puttees when going through very brushy/thorny terrain in the excessive heat of summer, when combined with thin linen summer pants. They protect from thorns and so on. When its warm, they come off as soon as possible. When its cooler, they can stay on to add some warmth since the pants are very thin. My long puttees are also modern repros, and not woven to the proper dimensions, but cut from a larger piece of wool. Not optimal.
          Short puttees are my default when wearing loose pants. Both puttee lengths can wrap over or inside the boot's edge for different types of comfy and protection. In the winter, I wear wool pants, so short puttees are sufficient to simply close the gap and prevent the intrusion of pebbles and the like.
          I'd put the gaiters on on top of the puttees if I was going hiking in very wet weather. They are more waterproof than wool puttees, but don't look as neat. I legitimately find the puttees to be a solid vibe. Replacing them is also cheaper than replacing frayed pants.

    Because when you're fighting a fire, they'll come untucked otherwise. And it's not ticks and spiders you're worried about. It's frantic rodents trying to crawl up your leg.

    This is a good strategy, but I've recently learned it makes you susceptible to poison ivy if you're backpacking. When you undress for the night it's very hard not to get whatever oils your socks have accumulated on your hands when you take them off, vs being able to easily slip off your pants by gripping them by the waistband. Being very careful where you tread if you're tucking your pants into your socks.

    For me, the ultimate tick protection is Permathrin. There's no substitute for treating your clothes before you go.

        DEET degrades fabrics and synthetic materials, so yes, no es bueno.

            DEET can melt some trailrunners be careful with that.
            Sports watches too. Always take your watch off when spraying DEET.

            peppermint oil works very good for mosquitoes but not ticks, bring a sprayer and re-apply frequently. i like showering using peppermint oil in my soap the morning/night before i start a hike.
            permethrin in your clothes gets ticks fine if you're fine using that.
            skeeters also don't like nicotine but they'll still bite you unless you bring non smoker friends.
