English Oak Camo is the latest development from the JACK PYKE range, based on an English Woodland. If you wish to blend into the British countryside you now can, with a carefully designed English pattern, made for effortless comfort and fit. Based on high resolution photographs of what is considered to be the most important individual elements, digitally combined and strategically placed to form a seamless pattern. This pattern is then printed onto the material using the 'superior definition process'. This ultra realistic logically produced English oak pattern contains predominantly brown and green colours and is ideal for countryside pursuits.
Gaiters are a type of protective clothing for a person's necks, ankles and legs below the knee. Gaiters are worn when walking, hiking or equestrian riding outdoors amongst dense underbrush or on snow, with or without snowshoes. Gaiters strap onto the hiking boot and around the person's leg to provide protection from branches and thorns and to prevent mud, snow, etc from entering the boot. Gaiters are similar to puttees, a part of numerous military uniforms.
Originally, gaiters were made of leather. Today gaitors or gaiters are commonly made of plasticized synthetic cloth such as polyester, or breathable water vapour permeable micro porous Polyester laminated Oxford fabric, such as Gore-Tex or Breatha-tex. Tough tear resistant material.
In Army parlance, a gaiter covers leg and bootlacing. A legging covers only the leg. The RAF confuses this by using gaiter for legging. The American Army during World War II had leggings, which were gaiters. Above the knee spatterdashes were cotton or canvas, as were many gaiters of varying lengths thereafter. Leather gaiters were rare in military, though sometimes a calf- length cotton gaiter had leather kneecaps added. Leggings, however, were very often made of leather, but also canvas.
