The removed section has a drawcord adjustment at the calf that together with the boot hook in the leg ending transforms this section into a gaiter that can protect your legs in brush-filled terrain, both in the mountains and the jungle. In colder weather conditions, the trousers can be worn over a base layer and the zips along the thighs opened for ventilation. Two large leg pockets can hold a map or compass. In addition to the hidden boot hook, the hems are equipped with eyelets to which laces or metal loops can be attached – yet another way to fasten the trouser leg and prevent brush or snow from forcing its way into the boot shaft.
Gaiter Trousers are made from wind and water resistant G-1000 Eco with recycled polyester and organic cotton and extra strong G-1000 HeavyDuty in the rear, pockets and gaiter sections. As in all of Fjällräven's Numbers garments, the fabric and details were chosen to minimise their impact on the environment – for example most of the leather details are made from leftover pieces of leather – and to make it easy to replace exposed sections after years of use.
