Hillsound Super Armadillo


The Hillsound Super Armadillo™ gaiter is a contour-fitting stretch gaiter with a base of SuperFabric™, the most durable barrier on the market to prevent cuts, abrasions and punctures.

This material is extremely tough and will withstand any scraping or puncture from crampons, scree or icy mountain approaches. For this reason, the Super Armadillo™ is the gaiter of choice for mountaineers and alpine climbers. The upper is made of waterproof and breathable Flexia stretch fabric to ensure a snug fit that won`t pinch or fall down. With a YKK zipper for easy on and off on the trail, no debris, snow or rain will interfere with your hike!



  • Waterproof to 20,000mm.
  • Breathability rating: 6RET, 15.000 + g.
  • YKK zipper brings the gaiter close to the leg.
  • DWR coating will remain intact for up to 50 washes.

We use SuperFabric™ in our gaiters as it is an industry leader for stain and abrasion resistance, breathability and waterproof rating.

Please note that where sizes overlap, this is to indicate that discretion is needed to determine the correct size. For the gaiters, the correct size can be dependent upon the individual’s calf size. For the traction devices, a correct fit is largely dependent on what type of shoe the individual will be wearing with the product. For all Hillsound products, we recommend you try the gaiters or crampons on in-store with the shoes you plan to wear them with to ensure you get the right fit.
