So DH's 40th birthday is on Friday and on Saturday he is running the Highland Fling. Needless to say i thought something to make his run go more smoothly would be nice. Somene on the FB thread posted a picture of their lovely gaiters and I thought they might be an idea.

Are they good/useful? or other ideas

Thanks

I love my Dirty Girl gaiters and find them very useful.

Great for keeping bits out of my shoes.

Other opinions are available but personally I would love them as a gift.
