Ambassador Product Review :: SKINS Compression

A200 Women’s Compression 3/4 Tights

Jess wearing her SKINS at Palm Beach Marathon and the Daytona 100 races.

After the recommendation of my coach, SKINS compression shorts and capris were a game changer for my training and races. They are comfortable and stay in place so no sliding around while you are moving, even after 100 miles!  They prevent me from experiencing chafe (huge plus in my book!) moisture is drawn away from your skin, so you stay dry and comfortable, which I had issues with even when I’d put on anti-chafe creams.  They are also compression, so they improve the circulation in my thighs, getting more fresh oxygen to my muscles as well, which has helped decrease soreness the day following a race or a long run. The fabrics have a UV protection of 50+, which means you can get out and train harder without worrying about the sun. Perfect for Sunny South Florida. I honestly won’t wear anything but Skins now for runs and races. Highly recommend them to any endurance athlete at any level. 

AT-A-GLANCE: PROS-Lots to name, but Anti-chafe is #1. CONS-Expensive, but worth the investment. Price: $79.99-$124.99
