The original ultra lightweight sting ray gaiter, with metatarsal protection, designed to protect from the heel of the foot to the height of 12 inches. Sting Ray Guardz are manufactured with 600 Denier Polyester Fabric encasing polycarbonate inserts. The material has 2 ounce rubber water proofing applied to inside surface to prevent water pockets from forming inside the Guardz. Sting Ray Guardz are secured in place with two 1 inch polyester straps and quick release buckles with an additional 1 inch polyester strap going under the foot to prevent "floating up" while wading. Sting Ray Guardz must be worn over wading shoes or boots since they offer no protection to the sole, toes or front of the foot. Sting Ray Guardz are manufactured in KHAKI AND OCEAN fabric.
