Hikers United presents our newest line Growing Young, featuring ‘Smarty Pants,’ a smart, stylish, and safe hiking trouser that is designed to assist elderly hiking enthusiasts.

The main way ‘Smarty Pants’ prevents elderly from falling, is through sensory and compression. It is a hiking trouser that includes breathable and environmentally friendly elastic nylon material that puts pressure on the muscle to increase blood circulation. It reduces tensions in the muscle, and thus prevents the chances of major fall injuries. Our ‘Smarty Pants’ take emergency measures in case of falling, by protecting them from injuries through airbags. The app we created (Hike Smart) has an advanced GPS system which constantly gives signals to nearby city satellites of your hiking location, and also keeps track of their hiking buddies’ location. Finally, the app also has an emergency call function in case of an accident.

Apart from safety, Hikers United takes into environmental sustainability, its size and aesthetics. Our 100% recycled nylon for the pants are super comfy. We look to convert our waste, such as leftover nylon to recycled nylon or recycle it for our other upcoming products such as the ‘Smart glasses’ and ‘Smart GoPro’.

Hiking is for everyone. Everyone in our ‘Growing Young’ community is provided sizes ranging from extra small to extra extra large. Our clothes are also equally stylish. Seniors are allowed to customize their preference of color and patterns for their pants, some include polka dots, strips or just minimalist plain beige and forest green attires. Through the aesthetics, we hope that elderly people will grow young and have a sense of uniqueness and youth.

Our glamorous design is decorated with neon color patterns to make themselves easily recognizable during their hike, in case of any emergency. Hike Smart, Hike Safe, Hike Stylish with Hikers United.
