Protect your leggings

If ever I walk through a puddle or a patch of mud, it's always the very bottom of my trousers that soil. This is the way it always has been, the only alternative is tucking your legsleeves into your boots.

Lately I've seen a lot of hype for hydrophobic coated, well, just about anything. Solar panels and windows can be hydrophobic, resisting the dirt deposited by the rain. Walls of houses can be hydrophobic, keeping them sparkling white. You can dip a piece of this material into a pot of mud and it comes out without a wisp of dirt.

So take a loop of hydrophobic material, maybe three inches wide, and clip it over the only part of a legging that ever seems to get dirty.

Need not be worn indoors, simply protects your outfit as you walk to work.

Are these called "gaiters"?

They are, and this is very Baked.

Not if they're made of stitched-together lotus leaves.

Isn't wearing rabid trousers going to make it difficult to go to the loo?

But are these gaiters you speak of hydrophobic?

I also pictured these as transparent so as to blend with your current attire without making you look like a pillock.

For you, [mit], that's probably a lost cause ...
