Survival Day 144 (Tuff Shins – Plastic Snake Leggings)

If you live where snakes are a fact of life, these Snake Gator Leggings are a required piece of gear every time you go to mow the lawn or hike into the underbrush.  I have family who live in the mountains where  rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, and copperheads have all been seen. They leave the snakes alone, but they also always wear their Snake Gator Leggings when they go out to weed wack the rocky slopes on the edge of their yard. Not wearing your Snake Gator Leggings isn’t worth be taking a ride in an ambulance followed by a few doses of anti venom. (FYI – Anti-venom is not covered by most insurance – so if you need it – you are likely going to end up paying out the nose for it as well.)

I wear my Snake Gator Leggings when I’m hiking or moving through any snake country. Post ZA, I figure they will stop a bite to my lower legs from a zombie just as well as a snake bite – so I’ve got that going for me as well.

  • Protect yourself from snake bites, weed trimmer, flying debris, sandspurs, and more!
  • The ORIGINAL (45+ years, USA manufactured) plastic snake leggings guards
  • Solid plastic construction gaiters – Made in the USA
  • Easy on and off design. No more ties or velcro straps
  • Good for surveyors or lawn crews when working in snake infested areas
