Whitewater Snakeproof Chaps Review

When I'm picking a place to go hike, I've always got about a half dozen decisions to make. What is accessible, what's the weather conditions going to be like, can I accomplish it in the time I have that day, etc. In recent years, the question "are there snakes" has kept me away from many mountains until old man winter arrived. Bothered by this, I purchased a pair of Whitewater Snakeproof Chaps. Immediately, a world of possibilities opened up. Now, if I see something I want to climb, I don't have to say, "Lets wait and make that a winter snowshoe climb". I just strap on the full-length chaps and start climbing. I carry them in my car at all times. In the past, I've been known to stagger about a mountain, always taking paths away from anything that looked like suspicious snake habitat. This costs valuable time and energy not to mention how slow I was walking in grassy or brush areas. Now, with my legs all protected, I can thrash at full speed without worry. Although designed for hunters, I would recommend them for any off trail hiker who has a slight phobia of slithery reptiles.
