The Product Line That Started It All
Back in 1997, well before our shop opened officially, Merlin was teaching himself to tan hides. His first project inspired our Buffalo Fur Gaiters (we call them Gators). These incredible boot covers are made to work hard and keep you warm and dry.
A Rich History
To put his new found tanning skills to the test back then, Merlin decided to create a pair of beaver gaiters. You could say that Merlin’s Hide Out is what we are today in part to our Fur Gaiters. These days, we offer this versatile accessory in buffalo fur. These gaiters will protect your boots, and keep your legs warm, dry, and covered from the elements.
Nature’s Beauty with Detailed Features
Our Buffalo Fur Gaiters are 17” from top to bottom, and feature a bison leather band and strap at the top. The top strap is adjustable, and provides up to 3” of flexibility to cinch the top. These fur gators also have a full length #5 YKK zippers to ensure they are easy to slip on and secure.
Merlin’s Hide Out Buffalo Fur Gaiters are made from our premium buffalo hides featuring prime winter fur. Every buffalo hide tells a unique story and offers natural color variation from multiple shades of brown to black. We hand-match buffalo fur pieces to ensure that each pair of gators match for colors and texture.
The Ultimate in Warmth & Comfort
Mother Nature can be brutal; if you need work (or play) wear that is tough as you are, our fur gaiters are for you. For the ultimate collection, pair your Buffalo Fur Gaiters with our Buffalo Fur Coat, and Buffalo Fur Trapper Hat; you’ll be covered from head to toe in luxurious warmth that will keep you protected no matter the elements.
