Proven protection against venomous snake bites.
Snakeprotex™ is a unique product designed from the outset to protect you from bites from Australian snakes. Snakes are a threat in Australia. Many snakes have the capability to inflict a fatal bite. The common Eastern Brown Snake is the cause of most instances of snakebite in Australia. Some victims of a bite from an Eastern Brown Snake do not even feel the bite.
The Snakeprotex™ gaiters must be worn over suitable trousers and boots and definitely should not be worn with low cut shoes. The zip fastens from the top to the bottom so gravity keeps it zipped. The garment should be worn with the zip on the outside of the leg. One horizontal fastening keeps the garment tight around the ankle. A strap under the boot keeps the garment in position vertically, stopping the garment from riding up the leg. The elastic strap has a very hard wearing cover. They’re built tough!
Sporting a range of features such as adjustable boot straps allowing for a better fit amongst a larger range of different boots and shoes, adjustable top leg straps allowing for a firmer, closer and safer fit. Snakeprotex™ Extreme gaiters are now more versatile than ever!
We cannot claim that the product is “snake-proof”. There are too many variables involved for us to claim this. Nor can we guarantee that a snake may not strike the body above the top of the garment, although it would be unlikely from most Australian snakes. It should be noted that even when wearing this product, common sense should still apply and the wearer should still avoid contact with any venomous species. Snakeprotex™ is designed to prevent a snake’s fangs penetrating through to the skin.
