4RT fork gaiters

Any decent fork gaiters out there? I have the Apico stanchion socks but they look a little naff at preventing dirt getting in if I'm honest.

Don't bother - they trap dirt and retain moisture 

Nobody uses them anymore

I always found that gaiters did a good job on my bikes in the twinshock era but you do have to look under them occasionally and let the area breathe.

However, it's not very practical to fit them to a modern bike; if you take the spring out you will see that fork travel is such that a compressed gaiter would reduce this travel quite substantially.  Not a good trade off for the small benefit.
