Zhik’s new Microfleece Hikers “redefine the traditional hiking wetsuit” for the highest levels of manoeuvrability and comfort while hiking.

Combining a revolutionary 3D body-mapped panel design — 1mm thermal Neoprene throughout — with four-way stretch and integrated hiking support, Zhik says 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 which are designed for an ergonomic fit. Embedded with fibreglass and lined with 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, the Australian Sailing Team Laser class representative for Tokyo 2020, has been testing the Microfleece Hikers ahead of the Olympic Games which are set to begin next month.

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’s new Microfleece Hikers are unisex and available in sizes M to XXL, with an RRP of £229.95 / €249.95 / US $269.99 / AUS$369.95 / NZL$419.95.

This neat fitting, versatile top is new in the retail stores for 2021. Zhik's Z-Skin® Top has evolved for 2021 to become one of the thinnest ever, skin-fitting neoprene tops. It's the perfect performance top to crossover high activity sailing and watersports, including paddling, bodyboarding and surfing and can be worn with a wetsuit, leggings or shorts.

As the name suggests, the ergonomically cut Z-Skin Top is designed to act as a protective 'second skin', giving high levels of shielding from wind chill, together with moderate levels of thermal insulation for active use and high water-shedding properties.

When you are regularly in and out of the water, even in warm weather, it is important to preserve your body temperature from prolonged exposure to water and windchill. Preventing the continual loss of body heat saves your valuable energy supplies, which are far better deployed at working hard and having fun on the water!

The Z-Skin Top is made with an ultra-thin 0.8mm smooth skin neoprene torso, together with Zhik's breathable XWR™ 4-way stretch water repellent fabric in the shoulders and sleeves with high stretch flatlock seams. The combination allows ultra-high levels of manoeuvrability and importantly provides UPF 50+ sun protection too.

Available in black, men's size M - XXL with a price of €169.95; £149.95
