    Does anyone know a good way to get Zhik stuff in North America? Any retailers carry the stuff? Their site has a US section, but there appears to be no option to ship to the US or Canada... and I can't find a company that carries hikers. APS carries boots, but nothing else. I'm looking for a new pair of hikers and possibly a hiking strap, so if anyone know where to get their stuff, it would be a great help.

    I would, but I'm looking for short leg hikers instead of 3/4, and I don't like the Rooster strap. Otherwise, Rooster is awesome. I have a race skin, and I lover their polilite mainsheets.

    Allright, thanks for the tip. Still, I'd like to find a Zhik hiking strap... with the cool rubber and all.

    How well does the Zhik hiking/boot system work? I mean it sounds like an awesome idea, but does it really work?

    Sweet. I don't get the catalog, so I wouldn't know. I hope they stick it on the site before the racing season starts up in a couple of weeks. Anyways, thanks for the info.

    SEA Airprene pants. Don't know why you wouldn't go 3/4 length.

    I strongly suggest the Colie hiking strap.

    The system works for it's intended purpose quite well. The gear is solid and they back up their stuff with good customer service.

    I only have a problem with the mainsheet snagging between the front of the strap and cockpit. I think the strap should have rounded corner on the front edge to prevent this.

    Is it common practice to not read a thread before posting?

    Hello? The thread is Zhik availability. Poster says APS does not carry anything but boots. A new catalog showed up today, and the Zhik line IS now available at APS. Any problem?
