Dirty Girl Gaiters have been adding style and sass to the trails since 2004. The rage began when fashionista and ultramarathoner Xy Weiss made leopard print gaiters to match her leopard print jog bra. In the beginning, she made extras to give away to friends. By the time she ran the 2004 Western State 100 Mile Endurance Race, the demand for dirt was overwhelming.
To justify selling to her fellow trailmates, she donates all profits to various worthy charities, causes and athletes. She also sponsors dozens of charity-based ultramarathons every year.
The Dirty Girl and her goddesses dish out the dirt from their home base in Green Valley, Arizona.
