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.
