From basic Neoprene (Race Skin) Shorts to our RaceArmour™ Range which come with dual-layer contoured neoprene padding and durable armoured exterior. Again, compatible with the ProHike Pads.

The really useful thing about these shorts is the silicone gripper featured on the thigh seems and waist to stop them slipping down or riding up. Wear them over your Longjohn or by themselves on hot days.

"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."
