Skins A400 Long Tights Review
I never thought there’d be a day where I’d be a signed up tights fan, but then again I’d never thought there’d be a day where Britain would leave the EU and Trump would be president…
But, the day has arrived. I own a pair of these Skins A400 tights and I love them…
As I said, these are a pair of Skins A400 Compression Long Tights. They are comfortable, insulating, supportive and surprisingly advanced, technologically speaking. I’ve taken the following info from the skins website to give you an idea of the thought that goes into them…
- SKINS A400 Men’s Long Tights are constructed using five different technical fabrics and 24 individual panels. These panels and seams follow lines of muscles and tendons.
- 360 degree reflectivity to make sure you’re seen outside. The logos contain premium reflective glass bead technology into the graphics to make them come alive in low light!
- Dynamic Gradient Compression technology increases circulation to deliver more oxygen to your working muscles.
- ADAPTIVE Technology to take care of temperature control and moisture management.
I’ve personally experienced the training benefit of compression fabrics in the form of cycling clothing. You also need to look no further than athletics to see compression fabrics being used to enhance sports and exercise performance. These don’t just have insulating benefits, they’ve also got a lot of credible research backing up their use.
Aesthetically, they’re a classy black with limited graphics. I like that – subtle and understated. You can of course go for more detailing, but mine are simple.
If you’re a runner, a cyclist, play an outdoor team sport then these are a fantastic investment. Insulating, supportive and improves performance. They also benefit those who train indoors mostly, reducing warm up times, supporting muscles and helping reduce recovery times.
Get over your cynicism over tights, buy a pair and see the benefits yourself.
Pick up a pair from the SKINS website, www.skins.net.
