Product Description

Product Description

SKINS long tights with gradient dynamic compression have a 5-panel layer at the knee joint and hip region for optimal biomechanical compression to allow running and maximum agility. They build gradual pressure in the targeted muscle and thereby improve the oxygen supply. The result is more power, speed, endurance and faster recovery. They reduce muscle pain and vibration and have been designed to reduce the risk of injury. These perfect-fit tights keep sweat away from skin, which leads to optimized temperature regulation. They are antibacterial and eliminate odours ionically. They can be worn by themselves or with other layers, depending on the weather and season. They provide maximum UV protection up to 50+ and come with a practical key pocket.

The leading range of clothing in the Skins range, the A400 garments are suitable for use in all types of high impact sport including running.Plus the A400 material is highly moisture wicking to provide year round moisture management and temperature regulation. The fabric is also given a permanent antimicrobial treatment and offers skin protection factor (SPF) of 50+.There is no doubt that long compression tights are taking the place of traditional running tights for those wanting to optimise their performance and maximise their comfort and recovery.SpecificationMore oxygen to your musclesDynamic gradient compression delivers more oxygen filled blood to active muscles to increase power and staminaRock-solid baseMemory MX fabric maximises your stability and control while channelling the direction of your leg musclesRecover fastLess lactic acid build-up, less muscle vibration and less pain in the morningStay protectedComfortably shaped crotch for better ball control, latest temperature and moisture management, permanent antimicrobial treatment, 50+ UV protectionMore detailsIntegrated key/coin pocket, ergonomic waistband that moves when you do without flipping or rolling

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely helps you go the extra mile 6 Feb 2012
By luke
Colour Name:Black / Yellow|Size Name:Large
I'm 5'10 and 90 kilos, building up fitness and losing weight for navy training. After a few weeks running I started to suffered from shin splints, however, as I am to get super fit in a short amount of time I needed some sort of quick fix cure or preventative measure to get me running again. After a few hours searching online I found these bad boys!! Following a weeks deliberation (its quite a bit of money for some tights) I went for it and I honestly can't explain how good they are. When running they keep your muscles comfortably tight and controlled, they regulate leg temperature very well-keeping me warm at the beginning of my run and keeping me cooler towards the end. I keep them on for an hour or so when I finish as I find they help a lot with recovery-which allows me to run every day. I often feel that they give me an extra energy resource, so when I'm knackered they act like some sort of bionic suit and keep me moving-amazing stuff!!! the only slight negative (why I have only given 4 stars) is that the large size claims to fit my height and weight, however the legs come up a bit long, meaning the knee support sometimes works it way below the knee and needs readjusting every 2km or so. If you are border line between two sizes I would recommend to go the smaller of the two options. Apart from that-absolutely amazing piece of kit-really motivational and works very well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Their good 15 Jan 2013
Colour Name:Black / Yellow| Size Name:Small|Verified Purchase
More flouresence patches would be good as lots of training is done in the dark but other then that they are well made, fit well although you must spend the time to check your size. This is my second pair had the other pair a year and they show little signs of wear. Bought these to stop having to constantly wash the others !

Very good. Does exactly as they describe. Only thing is that they tend to slip down if worn for a long period.

By John Boy TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
I've worn Skins original format tops, half-tights and long tights since 2009, an A400 top and half-tights since 2011 and, I bought the A400 long tights in 2013, so I know the product well. They certainly work for me in reducing delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) that I get between 48 - 72 hours after a hard session. As well as resistance and cardio I wear them under yoga or gym trousers for yoga and Pilates and, when I had inguinal hernias this summer, my GP said that it was OK to wear the A400 half-tights during Pilates for support and compression. Generally the quality has been very good, although I have had some where the flatlock stitching has started to unravel; they've been replaced without a problem.

The A400 kit differs from the original format in that different material is used at places that are subject to more movement or need less pressure. So the A400 tights have a less compressive material around the knees and over the ITB. However, they are more a lot more compressive around the ankles and calves; I must try them for a fast cadence session on a Spin bike or turbo trainer when blood could pool in the lower leg. As per the original format, the Skins sizing chart suggests that if you're on the border between two sizes, go for the smaller size. Whilst you could do that with the original range, there's no way that I can do it with the A400 range. I'm 5' - 10" (177 cm) and 70kgs so I'm right on the line between medium and small sizes, but trust me, I get more than enough compression from the medium size! I've mentioned that the lower section has a lot of compression and this requires some care putting them on. They need to be rolled on like women's tights as just pulling hard on the waistband may cause problems with the stitching or material.
