About SKINS Compression Clothing
SKINS Compression Clothing is a line of athletic gear designed to improve performance, reduce injury, and aid in recovery.  They offer a wide variety of sport specific and general items mainly focusing on cross training and endurance sports.

How Does Compression Clothing Work?

There are several key factors to compression gear that explain why it helps.  The first thing that compression tights do is keep your muscles tight against your frame reducing vibration induced fatigue and preventing overextension.
The other major benefit is the increase of oxygen sent to your muscles and improved circulation.  This has two major impacts, one being increased recovery times and the other being the reduction of muscle soreness due to less lactic acid build up.
Studies supporting compression wear also claim that this improved muscle oxygenation can relieve ailments such as arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, lymphoedema, varicose veins and deep vein thrombosis.
Some other SKINS specific benefits include moisture wicking, temperature control, and 50+ UV protection.


There are 3 main product lines offered by SKINS.  The A400 series is focused on the hardcore athlete who will wear clothing over 10hrs a week. The A200 series is for athletes who train less than 10hrs a week.  And the RY400 series which consists of post workout gear that aids in recovery time.
The other major difference between product lines is the type of SKINS technology that they use.  Your gear will either have Dynamic Gradient Compression (focus being on muscles in motion) or Engineered Gradient Compression.
