I need to buy a lightweight set of gaiters for a hunt I have coming up.Warm weather trip and need protection for stickers and thorns mainly.Not worried about them being waterproof. Any suggestions?

Do they need to be snake proof?

Roger, look at KUIU, they have them and are extremely light weight.  Don't know if they are designed to protect you from stickers & thorns.  However, you can ask them, they are great people to talk to.

Not much difference between Acacia, Locust and Snake Fangs.. Go with something made of Kevlar if you can find them. Light weight and puncture resistant.
