For guys running the Outdoor Research Croc gaiters how do you find the sizing. I wear a 11 boot and according to there swing charts either the L or XL will work.

Depends on calf size as to which one to go. I have a pair of Croc's. I wear 12 boots. But, my calf's are 18.5" around. They are tight around my calf's with anything on. And, will not velcro latch with thicker pants.

I bought a pair of Kuiu. I love them because they FIT around my calf's regardless of what I am wearing. Stretchy.

If you are of the more normal sizing, buy the OR one their charts say. FWIW, when talking with them, I believe that there is an inch difference in circumference in the L and XL sizing, through the calf's. They are a great, heavy duty, working gaitor. But, I highly prefer the Kuiu for hunting, what little I've got to use them so far. Much quieter and more breathable.

Yep all about calf size. Go large unless you have exceptionally large calf muscles.
