The Rooster Pro Hikers have evolved.

At first glance the most obvious difference is that our 3/4 hikers have now grown to full length, offering increased protection from knocks and bruises as well as eliminating those pesky hiker tan lines. The pre-bent construction allows for a natural, unrestricted hiking posture, while the super stretch high waist and adjustable shoulder straps provide a confident fit. The 5mm seat panel and fixed hiking pad adds further comfort and maximum lift allowing you to feel more connected to the boat than ever.

The knees and bum utilise Rooster's DURATEX flexible yet super durable neoprene.  The extra layer of neoprene behind DURATEX kneepad make it suitable for even the most challenging kneeling boat downwind. 
The fixed hiking battens feature a 500D PVC outer layer for extra grip and durability whilst the high tenacity polyamide reinforcements on the knees provide the extra protection and resilience required for top level performance.
When layered appropriately the 4/3mm glued and blind stitched construction is suitable for all year round use making these an ideal partner for your kitbag.

Size Chart

The size chart is a guide for your particular build, where there is a choice between two sizes it is better to opt for the smaller size as these will give less movement between you and the boat.

    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�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!

    I’ve been using these for a few weeks now and am really impressed. When you first pull them on they are a struggle, I was reassured they are designed to be tight. Once on, they are the most secure and comfortable hikers I’ve ever worn. They are like having a second skin rather than a pair of bulky pads stitched to some neoprene. I would highly recommend these

    Without doubt the best hikers I’ve worn. They are TIGHT! But once on they just fit like a glove and are extremely comfy. They don’t slip down like every pair of hikers I’ve ever owned, due to the tightness. They fit really well and although you can’t believe it when pulling them on, they feel like a lightweight wetsuit rather than bulky hikers once they are in place, don’t let any mention of tightness put you off, they are stretchy!
    The battens are super stiff and the grip between them and the boat is perfect, locking you down. They seem really well made and the material seems exceptionally durable so am hopeful they will last.
    I’m 195cm and 92kg (tall slim) and have a size 5. Like mentioned they are tight to pull on (as recommended) but once on fit perfectly
