Zhik's new Microfleece Hikers redfines the traditional hiking wetsuit for the highest levels of manoeuvrability and comfort whilst hiking.

Combining Zhik's revolutionary 3D body mapped panel design, a 1mm thermal neoprene throughout, with 4-way stretch and integrated hiking support, these hikers will keep you warm and fully supported as you work your boat hard upwind and downwind.

The impact zone behind the thigh has built-in, slim profile hiking pads are designed for an ergonomic fit. Embedded with fibreglass and lined with a 500 Denier Cordura®, the pads give exceptional longevity and durability. An additional set of removable EVA foam pads can be added allowing you to customise your hiking position to suit your side decks in different conditions.

Matt Wearn, Australian Sailing Team Laser class representative for the Tokyo Games, has been testing the Microfleece Hikers. Matt says, "Love the new Zhik Hiker design. They are versatile enough to sail in any conditions which makes them a great all rounder. The adjustable shoulder straps make them extremely comfortable. It's been great working with the Zhik team who are so invested in making the best on water clothing!"

Zhiktex™ II superior abrasion resistant panelling on the seat and knees adds further durability and stretch in these high wear areas due to its unique, tough knitted weave.

Additional insulation is provided with a quick drying inner fleece lining and high stretch, non-irritating flatlock seams are used throughout for strength and comfort.

Zhik Microfleece Hikers, Unisex Size M - XXL

RRP: £229.95, €249.95, US $269.99, AUS$369.95, NZL$419.95
