I am not able to run because of arthritis, but I do walk fast and hard. I have had varicose veins for years and suffer from dead legs at night in bed. Wearing these tights during and following exercise has all but put paid to the pain and dead leg syndrome. I love them and will be buying more.
Klasse, ich habe sie in der extralangen Version, die endlich mal lang genug ist für die Beine. Außerdem gut: der Stoff ist sehr dünn und weich, dafür ist die Kompression dennoch merkbar, aber angenehm (für Regeneration nach langen Läufen kann ich sie auch über Nacht im Bett anbehalten).
Am besten jedoch gefallen mir die Nähte, die vorn laufen statt zwischen den Beinen. Bei anderen Tights gehen sie im Laufe der Zeit genau dort kaputt.
Auch Tights, die nicht zur Regeneration gedacht sind, sollten die Nähte vorn haben!
Fände ich klasse, denn auch wenn es Flachnähte sind, sie bleiben anfällig und verursachen bei genügend Reibung eben auf Dauer diese Knötchen, die mich immer sehr ärgern, besonders bei hochpreisigen Tights.
Super angenehm bei langen Autofahrten. Knieschmerzen ade! Wo der Orthopäde nicht helfen konnte. Die Hose hat geholfen.
As a regular runner who's currently training for a marathon. I'd read a million and 1 articles on compression wear, decided to take the plunge and ordered some skins. Absolutely love them, great fit I chose small being 5ft5 and a size 10, even though they are a bit long they don't bunch up around knees or ankles, fabric seems to adjust to your height. I've worn them to run in under shorts and for recovery, they washed and wore so well I have ordered another pair whilst on offer. Great service from skins delivery was here in a flash! Looking forward to trying out other products.
Love the skins, and the other items in the Skins compression wear range. Always leave your legs feeling refreshed and without the tiredness/heaviness I usually feel after an intense training session. Recently purchased another pair to use when travelling on a long haul flight to Australia in April to compete at the Touch Rugby World Cup, and will also use them between games at the competition. No doubt will be back for another pair when I need them.
Ideal bei langen Autofahrten. Entspanntes Aussteigen auch nach 6 Stunden Fahrt und keinerlei Venenschmerz. Sehr empfehlenswert!
Do they fit women? Say they are unisex but this model is clearly male!
Hi, read the two reviews sounds very interesting, i have had 2 knee arthroscopies in the last two years the last op resulted in phlebitis behind the knee. It has setled down but not completly gone, I suffer from varicous veins, are these compression tights suitabe for his condition ? Hope to go on long haul flight early next year. How comfortable are these thights in the heat?
thank you so much for doing skins, im sure my comment on the last post wasnt the only thing that made you ddceie to do it but im so glad you did!!!!!! i cant wait!!!!!!
As part of our OHS review at work, we are buying all frequent travellers these compression tights after a couple of people trialed them and provided good feedback. @Belinda - These tights are unisex - meaning for both men and women ;)
I have purchased about 6 pairs of Travel and Recovery SKINS, both for me and as gifts. They have saved my life (probably literally!) during and after many long plane flights between the USA and Australia and enabled me to climb ladders (with my arthritic knees) and paint the house for many long hours! At the moment they are providing me with great relief while I recover from a bad fracture of my right femur. The insertion of a titanium nail down my femur involved a 12” cut and massive tissue damage. Wearing skins gives me ankles again and I am sure the resultant lack of swelling must be aiding the recovery.
I love pulling these on after a big session and knowing that they'll help me recover better for tomorrow.
My only qualm with them is that the waist band is very tight and I find them uncomfortable when I'm sitting such as on a plane. They are also very long - which is great for me - but not so great for the short chicks and guys out there (FYI I'm 178cm and 70kg and medium is very long but very tight waistband).
