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.

Best thing to wear for snipe, laser....
The best hikers around
Absolutely the best hikers around. Definitely buy a size smaller than required to get the best fit but once they're wet these hikers don't disappoint. The fixed battens are in exactly the right place to give the best support and best comfort when hiking. I couldn't recommend them more.
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.
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...
