Whatever your sport, SKINS A200 Men’s Compression Half Tights are scientifically proven to help your leg muscles perform better for longer by improving blood flow and oxygen supply. Whether you’re a dedicated sports fiend or an active outdoors-man on the weekend, you’ll be sure to notice the difference. Improved circulation also means painful blood lactate is re-circulated faster, and by compressing your muscles SKINS reduce muscle vibration, giving you a quicker recovery time and less risk of injury. As well as SKINS compression technology, the A200 range features strategically placed seams to support and anchor vital muscle groups, and eliminate chafing during your workout. The A200 Men’s Compression Half Tights also feature an internal key pocket and all-new raised tactile SKINS logos on the waistband. And most importantly, we’ve tailored the crotch for greater comfort.
Skins A200 Half Tights Compression Wear Features:
Perform better for longer: SKINS proven engineered gradient compression improves circulation and gets more oxygen to your muscles.
Reduce the strain: SKINS muscle focus reduces muscle vibration when you’re active, minimizing damage to muscles during sport.
Temperature balance: No excuses! Our fabrics optimize your body temperature whether it’s hot or cold out there.
50 UV Protection: SKINS was born in Australia, so we know a thing or two about exerting ourselves in the sun. Our fabrics have a UV protection of 50 , which means you can get out and train harder without worrying about the sun related risks.
Gradient Compression has been engineered to provide the correct level of surface pressure to enhance circulation and increase oxygen delivery – boosting your power, speed and stamina
Moisture Management: Keeping you dry through advanced wicking is inherent in all SKINS fabrics - moisture is drawn away from your skin, so you stay dry and comfortable
Muscle Focus: Uniquely wrapping and supporting your key muscle groups to reduce movement and focus direction for less vibration in your muscles, less soft tissue damage and less soreness after exercise
Odour Free: Permanent antimicrobial treatment discourages bacteria by ionically absorbing the odour causing substances normally associated with Lycra wear. These features are built into all our fabrics, so they can’t ever be washed out.
Skin Fit: SKINS unique sizing system is based on our unique Body Mass Index (BMI)/anthropometrical algorithm, because you only get the full benefits of gradient compression if your SKINS fit you properly
Warp Kit: The fabric in SKINS is warp knitted using multiple fine quality yarns to give superior performance - Warp knit fabrics have no natural stretch – instead, the spandex mix ensures specific levels of elasticity and perfectly controlled compression

Rated 3 out of 5 by Motorbiker Comfortable but durability much to be desired
I had initial high hopes for this product after having bought a pair of A200 shorts earlier.
Sizing was spot on for me, although I noticed the half tights were a little tight near at the tights compared to the shorts version. Once on, and during the run, very comfortable and effective in reducing leg fatigue - possibly due to less vibration(?)
However, the downside which made me think twice about the product. On the fourth run, the seams just came apart on the left hip. The stitching doesnt seem to be able to hold out. I am disappointed with how long this pair lasted, and hence I have rated the value as average, and quality poor.
I dont run in races, but exercise regularly due to the regular reservist call-up. In fact, I dont even like running!

Rated 4 out of 5 by DavidSG Good quality, comfortable
I have wore 2XU for years (long and short Elite tights). Tried SKINs for the first time and I am impressed. The compression is just nice and they are very comfortable. Value for money too. :)

Use these for my cross trainer. Read description before purchasing and yes you can train harder, don't know how! but you can. I bought another pair to wear after for recovery. Sizes on chart were spot on for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by brianlescargot Very Small
I have plenty of compression wear including other Skins clothing but this A100 series seems to be really small made. From Skins own size guide I should be plum middle in size medium, and I know it's meant to be tight, but I could barely get these past my thighs and certainly not up to my waist so I have returned I moved up a size to Large. Otherwise this is a fantastic bargain!

Usati per correre, gradevole sesazione di pressione sulle coscie, anche dopo la corsa si continua a sentire. Consigliato a chi è sovrappeso, contiene ed evita fastidiosi sballonzolamenti.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DS84 Excellent product
Seem quite expensive, but well worth the money.
I loathe cycling shorts' chamois, so I searched for an alternative to cycling shorts and found these. I use these for commuting (with a Brooks saddle for comfort).
Despite being thin and light, these are very durable - I've covered about 2,500 miles on my first pair (purchased about a year ago), and they're just beginning to bobble, despite daily use, and daily washing - still lots more life in them.
Subsequently purchased additional pairs, based on this positive experience.
The size/fit is excellent - the manufacturer's size chart seems accurate.
My legs are rarely fatigued when using these, so I presume that this is down to the compression technology.

I have used these for around six months. I bought white and they have gone a little grey...next time im going for black. I used them for both cycling and playing football, really seem to make a difference especially after playing football, much less muscle aching next day.
