Description

Our Classic Hiking shorts are an iconic part of the Rooster range, being one of the first products brought out. We have developed them overtime with improved fabrics and technology to keep them at the top of their game! They have been designed with 10.5" batten pads at the back of the upper leg, which allow for a good connection with the boat. The battens are made in 3 parts enabling them to shape around the leg for maximum comfort and hiking longevity. Extra padding at the knee pads provides additional comfort whilst a thinner superstretch neoprene is used behind the knee to ensure a comfortable fit on the majority of leg sizes, and when in bent position.

The ¾ length fit finishes just below the knee and these Hikers also work great when worn over PolyPro Leggings or a Thermaflex Long John for when extra warmth is needed, or Rash legs for UV protection.

Top Tip: If you want to extend the life of your classic hiking shorts even further from abrasive decks and improve grip, get some Wear Protection Shorts to wear over the top!

Laundry instructions

We recommend hand washing in warm soapy water and allowing to air dry.

    First edition of class hikers

    Great comfortable and works well across a range of different boats from laser, Int Moth to F16 and F18 cats.

    Flexible using layering system in cold waters and still using every week for past 20years on in warm waters 40+deg C of the Arabian Gulf. .

    Protected by the original rooster protection shorts the are still looking almost new. Washed in washing machine after every sail!

    May be time to retire them for a new set of Rooster kit.

    Great improvement...

    This is my second pair & I'm disappointed my last ones only lasted 11 years of all year round use on my Laser...lol.

    The elastic straps failed & there was a small wear through on one batten pocket, but the wife decided to treat me for Christmas (not complaining).

    The new ones are a slightly different design.

    The red braid seam behind the knees has gone. This was always something I hated as it used to dig in when crouched down on a run.

    The lay out of the straps is better, as they cannot slip off your shoulders. (no longer have to cross over the straps at the front).

    The strap buckles have gone, so no more digging me in the ribs!

    The front of the shorts come up higher, now I can tuck my belly in...lol

    All great improvements.

    This is my second pair of classic hikers. Very happy with purchase. Battons just about fit above the knee as I am quite short 5'4".
