About HIKERS® Co.
How We Got Started
Our beer-loving team tinkered with prototypes for weeks using duct tape and staplers before landing on the original HIKERS® button fly suspenders design. Don’t let your kids skip arts and crafts. Those skills are handy.
But wait. We’re getting ahead of ourselves. The whole thing started with the following realization...
Belts don’t work and they can even be bad for your health. We need to keep our pants pulled up. Not cinched on. They often require adjusting during the day. Belts add weight to your pants while trying to keep them up at the same time. Maybe not the most intelligent design.
On the other hand, suspenders are about as modern day as an 8-track in a Ford Pinto. They’re bulky and slow to take on and off. Many folks just aren’t into the suspenders look, including us.
It was high time for an innovative suspenders solution.
Seeing that we're highly motivated by the desire to stock our fridge with good local beers, we’re basically a non-profit.
Our Crack Team
HIKERS® Co. is operated by its founders on the Big Island of Hawaii. It's a family affair, a true Mom & Pop. Matt & Melissa Morgan have been working together for over 20 years, and somehow they still get along.
Matt Morgan - Founder & CEO
This whole thing was Matt's idea. Frustrated with his belt, he woke up one morning and got crafty with a dog leash and a carabineer. After wearing that thing around for weeks, he used his decades-long experience in the apparel industry to make HIKERS® a product for everyone. Matt spends most of his time working on product and brand development.
Melissa Morgan - Operations Director
As the person in this duo who gets the day-to-day done, Melissa focuses on all the details. If you've emailed our customer support, chances are she's helped you. She also uses her background to build the website and write and edit all of the company's marketing material.
Best thing ever
Love my Hikers. Bought my son two sets abs he loves them also.
These are great
I struggled for year with my pants falling down, even with a belt. I would have to tighten it so much and still I would get plumbers crack. I thought about suspenders but I prefer the untucked shirt, also suspenders were bulky....these are awesome
These are my 2nd pair. Excellent product and highly recommended. Great service too. Very comfortable, easily adjustable. Super happy with both purchases.
I had an issue with my suspenders. Customer service responded immediately and sent me a new pair.
These are great! No more fumbling with the front button to get the "job" done, and everything is super easy and very workable!
These suspenders are the ultimate solution for hunting where you are wearing a backpack. Most suspenders have clips that are too big and they dig into your back when wearing a backpack. Well done Hikers!!
Button Fly suspenders give me the confidence to walk across the room knowing my pants won’t fall down. Excellent product.
This is great! Wish I have found it years ago.
Very happy with these suspenders, I was looking for suspenders without buckles as ones with buckles were agitating my back.
These are nice and flat, comfortable, reasonably priced and easy to to put on & take off.
I definitely recommend them & will likely be buying again in the future.
Being old, short and round, I’ve been wearing suspenders for many years now. I ordered a pair of Upfitters and have been using them for a week now. These have become my go-to suspenders for holding up my pants and saving the world a scary sight! They are comfortable, easy to put on and off, and light as can be. Your sizing is very accurate, first time I've had anything Small in fifty years! . Ordering a second pair now!
As I got older, I noticed that I was constantly pulling up my pants and retightening my belt. The HIKERS® Button Fly Suspenders work as advertised. No more readjusting. I bearly know I’m wearing them!
