    Finally the answer to stopping me sliding off the back of my RS Vareo accelerating quickly when hit by a gust with the kite up! The amount of "stickiness" of these shorts is perfect for keeping your grip on the deck but not to grab when moving about. Going to order to a bigger pair to wear outside my dry suit

    Brilliant pair of shorts. Purchased a few weeks ago and use them consistently. They have definitely stopped the wear and tear of my wetsuit. I love them!

    Great product. My son has been wearing these for over a year now with hiking pads and still going strong.

    As with my previous Rooster shorts they were on the day after delivery. The material is so light yet durable and they are great for hiking. They are the saviour of wet suits too, no nasty snags. I thoroughly recommend these shorts

    These are the perfect bit of kit, in the summer wear them by themselves or with a thin wetsuit underneath and then in the winter and windier stuff you can put your pads in the shorts making your supertherm long john more comfortable. Perfect

    Worn all season and not a hole in my kit. good for all climates and also keeps you warm as well as keeping your kit in good order.

    Having sailed in them for a month in my Aero and Laser they don't seem to be showing any sign of "wear". Very Comfortable and good fit!
