Legs feel great on long runs. Binds a little behind the knee, but the compression keeps legs and glutes feeling great.
There are some "-" but for each of them there are "+". Mainly:
- really good compression
- there is a really boost when legs are tired or lazy and u need to step over it
- have a good waist effect
- not so easy to put them on if matching to 400's
- they fills a little bit... raw
Love the compression, not sure if I will like the waist band
Worst QC product ever!! I first got the item a couple weeks ago. After wore it for a run I noticed a little hole at the seam on the right knee, sent it for a clam, got a new one today. THERE IS STILL A HOLE AT THE EXACT SAME POSITION. It's a new pair with the same defect. What happened to your product quality? not happy with the purchase at all.
These tights are amazing! I've purchased about 6 different pairs of Skins tights, and have never been disappointed! When I first put them on, I had to learn how. They were like putting on pantyhose. Now they feel great, the way compression should fit! I give them 10 out 5 stars!
I used these in three trainings now and so far I must say they are the best running tights I ever had. Great compression at the right zones and very comfortable at the same time. The sizes are a bit different from the regular A400 though. I usually have size ML, but it time this was too long, the regular size (M) however almost appear a bit short, but are just right in the end. But since the tights stay exactly how you put them on and do not slip at all even during heavy training they still are the best fitting tights I ever tried. Well done!
I am a long time wearer of the 400 series long compression tights which I rate as 5 star, 10/10. I do cross-fit type training 3 - 4 times a week. When my last sets wore out I bought two of these as replacements, online without trying them on, thinking I was upgrading to something even better that Skins had come up with. This was a mistake. In short they are much harder to get on and the Proprioceptive Power Bands feel ruberized and do absolutely nothing special at all from what I can tell a few months in. The lower calf section is made of some kind of very inflexible material which is especially hard to get over your foot. There seems no reason for this. Over all they are MUCH harder to get on due to the rubberised material and then when you do get them on they don't even fit around your upper leg, butt and waste as well as the pure 400 series. Sorry Skins but I don't recommend them. At least don't buy them without first trying them on. I'm going back to the 400 series and never looking back. Now I just wish they made those in some more interesting and fun colours as they have started to do with the 200 series.
Great fit and very comfortable.
Like them even better than the original. The colors are better and the pants seem to both fit better and the material seems higher quality for a lower price. Overall, they are improved and cost less !
These tights have finally put some wearable outdoor tights for men that don't necessarily look like tights. Great Tech and targeted compression areas.
super gute Kompression an den Stellen, die es braucht. Leider ist Naht am Schritt bereits nach 3 Trainings gerissen :(
keeps me going faster and longer. these were really tight to put on first time
First thing I noticed is the difference in colour to the web photo which a bit disappointing speedo provide special gloves for their fastskin range idea you should give some thought considering the price otherwise a good product.
Brilliant. One word of warning give your self time to put them on.
Comfortable and great once you get them on. If you have hairy legs expect to pull a few hairs out fitting into them...
Die K-Proprium ist sehr zeitaufwändig beim anziehen, wenn diese aber einmal sitzt hat sie einen tollen Tragekomfort und der Support der Muskulatur ist deutlich zu spüren. Meine Lieblingstights für den Leg-Day.
A truly great product. Fits well and really gives awesome support
Really very satisfied with this tights. I have several models of skins tights (A200, A400, DNAmics), and this one seemed even more convincing. You really feel the muscle support. I
used it for the first time in a half marathon and I really felt my legs
significantly less tired from the 18th kilometer compared to the
previous half-marathon I ran.
First time I've bought Skins having used other brands for the last three years. Will. Never. Go. Back!
Hard to put on - alignment of panels very specific and not easy to retain on long runs
Perfect for my running and yoga and a fit you feel gives you support. Excellent
Super Kompression. Einfach super. Tolles Tragegefuehl
These are exceptional compression tights, I've noticed improved recover and also performance during my HIIT workouts, slight downside to quality as I have a loose thread in the stitching.
To say these are the best compression pants I've ever owned is an understatement. The A400 pant is already the best compression pants I've ever owned, but having to tape up before a race was a waste of time and money for the tape. Granted these are more expensive than standard compression pants, but with how well they support my calves, knees, glutes, etc, I have no doubt they will pay for themselves in no time. Plus they're still cheaper than other KT compression pants on the market!
These are the best (compression) tights that I've worn from SKINS. The darker fabric is ultra thick with anti-slip on the inside and I like it very much. The ankle to "just below calf" muscles are wrapped in a light grey fabric and that fabric is very much the best! The dark grey fabric gives ultimate Power and strength/flexibility from the legs. These feel like they are using kinesiology (muscle chain engagement) built into these tights, making the leg muscles continually engaged while, if any injuries are/were present, or stresses to the legs may be a concern, these tights would be recommended as they properly align from hips to ankles. I use these for yoga and ballet and especially for recovery and stretching, I purchased 2 pairs the day they came out and use them continuously (though I like the look of STARLIGHT tights). If I were to edit this garment, I would FIRST make them footed (like the original SKINS recovery travel tights that I use often), then I would use more panels for muscle/tendon wrapping using the dark/thick material and especially the lower light-grey material replacing the"gradient-colored fabric". The gradient colored fabric is great and tough however they are more suited for recovery rather than performance, I purchase SKINS for performance AND recovery so I certainly purchase specifically designed SKINS for specific purpose. I would also add the long-sleeve top with the same muscle defining panels throughout for, not just properly fitting/wearing, also for performance muscle engaging and recovery sleep muscle compression. All in all, these, using current tech and current designs available, these are the best on the market.
The benefits of these tights are very obvious to anyone who has worn compression clothing in the past. Whether you are doing cardio or weights your legs feel much more stable and strong. It almost feels like a 4 wheel drive when running hills. The stability factor really kicks in with weights whether it is squats or upper body you are working with. The tights fit great and look great.just need a shirt to match and more color choices. I will buy another pair of leggings and a shirt when you do that. Great product if you can afford. In that case, they are well worth the 200 bucks. Thanks to SKINS for pushing the design limits of compression technology with K-PROPRIUM.tights.
