Benefits & Features

Forget EPO, nasal spray or cough syrup. SKINS A400 Men's Compression Half Tights are designed to enhance your performance, whatever your sport. Dynamic gradient compression accelerates your blood flow to deliver more oxygen to your active muscles – so you can work harder to be man of the match, or to shave seconds off your PB half-marathon time.

With 400 fit and dynamic gradient compression, you'll notice improved core body control and power, as well as less muscle soreness post-exercise.

In addition, biomechanically placed Memory MX fabric around the ITB band and TFL muscle group provide constant, controlled compression and unrestricted movement to help you to avoid muscle damage.

Fast wicking technology transports moisture away from the skin and helps to regulate body temperature and UPF 50+ provide all round protection.

Now you've got yourself a pair of tights that help your perform to your best potential.

really works for dragon boating. love the fit and comfort when using for extreme sports.




With a few glue/hamstring issues I had already purchased a pari of A200 shorts. When I saw these more advanced shorts were on sale I didn't hesitate. Have to say they are excellent, comfortable and do the job (supplementing the physical therapy I am applying that is). My only quibble is that I do prefer the longer leg length of the A200, although it isn't a deal breaker.

Well worth it.




Bin sehr zufrieden mit der tight super Kompression sitzt einfach klasse. Lieferung war auch sehr schnell .
Werde noch mehr Skins Artikeln kaufen .....




waistband is way better than the A200 and they feel tight but comfortable. Def recommend!




These are the only pair of compression shorts I've owned so I can't compare them to others but they are fantastic. I play either midfield or striker in field hockey and these shorts have significantly improved my game as they dramatically delay the onset of fatigue and speed up the recovery meaning that I can run at high intensity for a lot longer before I'm tired.

Also when I go running my legs felt fatigued towards the end of a run and now when I run the same distance at the same speed my legs don't feel fatigued at all.

These are very comfy and would definitely recommend them to any games player, runner, cyclist, etc. Definitely worth the money.




Hammer Produkt!
Wer Zerrungen und Veretzungen voreugen will, dass ist die richtige Kompressions Tights dafür! ;D




I'm using these shorts every time I go to the gym. They are very confortable and really improve the performance.
I prefer the half tights than the power shorts as they are a little bit longer.

I'm a big fan of Skins and isn't a number of their products - I chose these to wear for the London Marathon and had worn them in training runs. They kept me dry and supported with fantastic compression keeping my quads, thighs and glutes cramp free. The problem is the waistband, who on earth thought this would be suitable with harsh, thick elastic way inferior to the rest of the product that digs in which I really noticed over the final miles causing severe discomfort. I wrote to Skins after who told me to look out for the new product - I will happily swap them when the time comes.

I have tried compression shorts from Reebok, Nike, Hylete and Skins. These are without a doubt the best product I have tried. Great fit, very comfortable. I will admit they are a bit expensive, but I have had some for years, without any problems. (My Nike's have torn and Reebok's elastic waistband fell apart almost instantly).

I would recommend these to people for running, crossfit, swimming, etc. Very happy with the A400 product!




Top Produkt! Sitzt genau dort wo es hingehört und verrutscht nicht. Gute Kompressinonswirkung die dich perfekt unterstützt und in der Bewegungsfreiheit in keinster Form einschränkt. Absolut treuer Begleiter im Wettkampf und Training!




I just bought a pair for my dragon boating. I used to get sore thighs and bum, but after wearing the skins my bum and thigh are not sore.

On the other hand other parts of my body are, I think I am going to have to get the top and the longer gear.




I owned the Mens half Tights before these, skipped the A200s because they never fitted well in trying them on, A400's on the other hand are great, did need a bigger size but I guess that's not a problem, they feel better and work better. Love to use them for workouts or just to sleep in them on a hot night, I use them less for the compression and more for the support and wicking, as im over weight with big legs, often chafe a lot until I found these.




I bought these a year ago and they are still awesome! I'm a ameture triathlete and I use my only pair atleast 3 times a week... Gym or running.... Love the Skins brand.




I use a pair of these for all my workouts - whether lifting, crossfit, or running, you'll love these. They last too.

A superb product that works. Having tried a number of compression tights/shorts in the past I can safely say these are the ones that work. Having just completed the 2012 Marathon des Sables I would say this product was one of the huge reasons for being able to complete the race. Whilst crossing some of the most uncomfortable and unhospitable terrain I have ever encountered, up and down hills and across jebels, these kept my legs working over the 6 days!

Well fitted, comfortable and very durable I would 100% recommend these to anyone

I bought these as after a run or a long hike i get soreness in my lower hip area which I assumed is probably rubbing of the ITB band.

Wearing these I can now run without worry of feeling bad effects the next day. I've run day after day without any soreness.

The half tights are a perfect fit due to the detailed size guide and have helped me run longer and increase my speed.

Fantastic product, may look to buy the full tights in the near future.

use them on game day great




Had the originals, didn't care much for them, got the 400 tops and loved them, and finally got to try the tights today and was not disappointed in the slightest. Just as good as I was hoping.
