Description

Full length 4/3mm hiking pant with fixed battens in the back of the upper leg, which allow for a good connection with the boat. The fixed hiking battens feature a 500D PVC outer layer for extra grip and durability with Duratex II™  at the seat part and knees/shin for extra protection and resilience required for top level performance. The knees/shin also feature additional padding for added protection against knocks around the boat. The pre-bend in the knee/leg supports hiking positions, and there is a soft elastic binding at the ankle to fit comfortably into the hiking boot. The hikers have been developed with different materials throughout the panels to create comfort and hiking performance.

NOTE ON FIT: These hikers are designed to feel really tight when you first put them on so that they will support the pads securely. They will give a bit once wet. We have also updated the fit at the waist by lowering it slightly and adding more shaping to the front panel as well as improving the stretch along the top of the waistband, all to improve comfort.

FEATURES

  • Adjustable shoulder straps
  • Scooped waist and racer back design
  • Material differentiation throughout to aid in hiking performance
  • High stretch elastic binding at waist
  • Raw edge smooth finish at ankles for comfort with boots
  • Fixed Glass-fibre battens with 500D PVC cover at back of legs
  • Super stretch behind knees for comfort when sailing downwind
  • Duratex II™ wear resistant knees with additional 5mm padding
  • Duratex II™ seat panel
  • Suitable for use with RaceArmour™ Lite Shorts

Awesome hikers

I am 6'2'' (1.88 m) and 175 lbs (79 kg) and I purchased a size 4. The Pro Hiker fit is perfect, just tight enough to hold the pads in place without movement and extremely comfortable so you forget the pads are there. The materials used, stitching, and top quality construction make these hikers an obvious choice. Without a doubt, the best piece of kit I own.

10/10

I am 5’11 with an athletic build and the size 4 fits perfectly. I have had these hikers a year and have used them about 200 times (I sail a lot) and they show hardly any signs of wear (I bought the protection shorts too which will have helped as I sail a Laser). I have previously owned Sandiline hikers and Zhik power pads and these are my favourite. The only downside is that occasionally the strap slips of my shoulder. Get them...

These hikers are the best hikers I have ever had they are warm and are so comfortable going up and downwind in all weathers as they grip perfectly to the boat but not to much that it's hard to get up from a hike I can not say a bad word about them except they are tight getting on but are very warm are fine once you have warn them a few times so don't worry

A very tight fit but so comfortable when they are on and they don't slip. Great that they are full length and they are nice and warm. Highly recommended bit if kit.

So far I have had these hikers for a few weeks of use of autumn sailing and they are THE BEST!They have been warm enough for sailing my laser in 6 degrees C in Weymouth whilst also providing plenty of flexibility as required. Upwind the pads are super stiff and they keep me connected to the boat like nothing I have had before. But downwind the pads are thin enough and perfectly placed so that I don't even notice them.They are the ideal set of hikers for any laser sailor - I couldn't say a bad word about them!
