Butt Thigh and Back-o-Knee Protection are the great protective features of these rugged breathable, UV resistant, Lycra tights. Any sailor that droop hikes or should droop hike ( are you listening Thistle sailors) will want these hikers as part of the personal apparel arsenal.
Great as underwear or outer wear depending on the weather you will love the flexibility comfort and ease of transitioning from full droop hike position to an inboard gunwale post ready for tacking.

One of the more graceful crafts to cut our waters is the Etchells. Its’ grace and eloquence however disguise some of the irritations in sailing this beauty. Fortunately however, Sailing Angles offers you its unique and poignantly functional Etchell Undies™ which will quickly mitigate the lumps and bumps of your sailing experience. Sailing Angles’ Etchell Undies™ is a tuff, breathable, supportive and cool Lycra body short with a 3mm protective neoprene butt and thighs. If worn as an underpiece, it is a low profile butt and thigh protector that works with any garment you wear over it. It’s just icing on the ‘cake’ so to speak, and nobody has to know you are padded and protected. Many sailors, depending on the conditions, choose to wear it as an outer piece.
Ethell Undies also has a long legged sister, Hiking Tights, which in addition to the butt/thigh pad also offer you knee pads and UV protection while still keeping you cool. Please go to our Home page www.sailingangles.com and then find and click on Hiking Tights and order them there.
If you need more protection and padding however, as many sailors do, Sailing Angle’s Turbo Hikers offer you double thigh protection in addition to the 3mm neoprene butt and thighs pad . WE have an additional, interior, 3mm thigh pad sewn on the inner leg which doubles your comfort during your hiking strapless contortions. AS this Turbo's interior, double thigh pad is open ended, you may also add additional padding if needed.

Dirk, our Canadian Boat builder among others found The Turbo Hikers( without battens) very helpful during the Etchell Nationals.

Snipers love their boats. Sometimes the boat however, does not reciprocate your affection as your would like. Fortunately, Sailing Angles make a marriage counselor which we call the Snipe Hiker, to mediate what appears to be an often physically abusive relationship.
50% of the snipers polled at a recent Don Q regatta told us that they wanted calf protection along with butt and thigh protection. Pearson Snipes, though not exlusively, seem to be the most repetitive offenders in this category.
All Snipe HIkers come with double, interior thigh pads. These double thigh pads are actually pockets which not only permit you to add additional padding if you like, but also batten pockets ($40 ad set). The picture shows shorts inside out, exposing the interior pockets. This pictures shows batten pockets in place. Many sailors discover that the double thigh padding alone is sufficient protecton and do not choose the batten pockets.
If you dont need calf protection, but can use the other protective features of butt and double thigh pads, go to our Home Page . www.sailingangles.com and click on Turbo Hiking Tights and Shorts and buy this item, without calf pads, there.
We listened and now here it is.
