Description

The latest iteration of our multi-function RaceArmour™ LITE Shorts, now with Duratex II™ seat reinforcement for increased longevity.

Wear as an overshort year-round to provide abrasion resistance and comfort, with Rooster ProHike Pads to hike harder for longer, or in warmer climes as a practical, lightweight alternative to a traditional 'wetsuit' or 'hikers'.

Featuring dual-layer contoured neoprene padding with Duratex II™ armoured exterior and 410gsm stretch Spandex front panels; whether you sail in Rochdale or Rhode Island, we have you covered. Wear them on their own in warmer climes for extended hours on the water, or as a perfect partner when worn over an existing neoprene garment.

"For winter hiking support and protection against an abrasive hull, we love our RaceArmour™ Lite Shorts with ProHike Pads worn over the top of a SuperTherm® Long John. I can see me wearing them over a ThermaFlex LJ in the UK summer - and at Garda in light airs, perhaps on their own."

Steve Cockerill

A truly versatile layering garment and worthy addition to the Rooster DS Layering System™.

I don't actually own these exact shorts but I really wanted to put a review down for the rooster base layer shorts I bought over 10 years ago for ?20 that are still going. I'm sure these are of the same quality as with most of the rooster gear.

These shorts are great. I wear them over my super therm long john or under my salopettes depending on the boat. I can see myself wearing them by themselves in the summer.

Really comfortable. I've been wearing these for a while now and no signs or wear and tear at all. They offer great support without feeling really chunky on your legs. Have worn by themselves in the summer and with a wetsuit as well. Great Product I would recommend. Thanks Rooster yet again!!

I love these shorts to bits: very comfortable, super protection, brings some warmth once the weather get colder, but works as well in warm waters. Feels like a protective solid second skin. Great product !

Originally bought these to protect my wetsuit from deck wear, but they're just as good on their own on a hot day, or even to provide some padding on the rail of a keelboat
