Skins A400 Compression Top Review

skinsI was gifted my Skins A400 Compression long sleeve top to review, this is actually the first compression top I have ever tried and I loved it, I was afraid it would stop me being able to move as easily but the stitching can take a lot of stretching and remains solid. I played at 9pm in the cold and it really did keep me warm and the next day my muscles where not as fatigued as to what I am use to, I really loved the sizing chart sometimes when we buy fitness equipment, small medium and large is just not good enough, so I loved the sizing chart.
The A400 Men’s Compression Long Sleeve Top comes in at around £75.00

SKINS A400 Men’s Compression Long Sleeve Tops supercharge your performance naturally, whatever sport you play. Dynamic gradient compression accelerates your blood flow to deliver more oxygen to your core muscles for more power and endurance.
I was wildly happy that it did what it says on the tin, I really noticed the promised improved core body control and power, as well as less post-exercise muscle soreness. I haven’t wore enough to see but they do say that there is biomechanically placed Memory MX fabric over the spine and around the scapula and obliques provides constant, controlled compression and unrestricted movement to help you to avoid the type of muscle damage you sustain in action, but only notice when you cool down.

I really think this product is worth the money and is definitely something I will continue to use and train with, the professionalism of the product and the packaging surprised me and until the last 5 minutes of training I really benefited from the benefits, its so nice to use a product and it does what it says.

Skins A400 Features

  • 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

  • Memory MX

Memory MX fabric contains a unique high stretch elastomeric yarn – which returns to its original shape no matter how much stress you put it under

  • Warp Knit

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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 400 Fit

A super comfortable fit, more precise, targeted Gradient Compression and in some cases, a greater range of leg lengths for men and different body shapes for women

After using both the Skins and 2XU both had differing benefits so I really am torn, but for now Skins have a new fan.
