Nick, the gaitors should go over your boots. Some gaitors have a hook that attaches to your boot laces to keep them in place.

I put my gaiters in between the liner and the shell.

I usually just pull my entire pant legs over my boot and then strap in. I've never had any problems with snow getting in, but my pants do make it quite a ways down my boot...

Wouldn't that just channel water into your boot?

I always use the little hook on the end to snag them on the laces so they don't slip off.

Not at all. I tried them outside, but I just didn't like it.
