5 Great Things About SKINS Compression & Giveaway

I was excited to get the opportunity to try SKINS, DNAmic Capri Tights, which are made by an Australian company. I’ve worn compression socks but not tights before so this was nice to try out. These SKINS feature unique Dynamic Gradient Compression to support and stabilize the glutes, quads and hamstrings. I thought they felt great when I first put them on. The fabric is really smooth and slick, which I think is nice. At first I was wondering how these are different from other tights but I see that they have all these different hems that I think help support and compress different areas of my legs. I thought they felt good on my runs and when I did other workouts with them. I think they felt just right and tight enough to get the benefits of wearing compression. The seem to help me recover faster.imageHere are 5 great things about SKINS DNAmic Tights from their website:

  1. The Dynamic Gradient Compression increases oxygen delivery to active muscles while in motion and reduces lactic-acid build-up for more power and less recovery time.
  2. They are muscle focused. They wrap and support 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.
  3. Nice moisture management. They’ll keep you dry through advanced wicking, which is inherent in all SKINS fabrics – moisture is drawn away from your skin, so you stay dry and comfortable.
  4. UV protection of 50+, which means you can get out and train harder without worrying about the sun related risks.
  5. They have published research. SKINS are scientifically proven to increase muscular strength and endurance as well as decrease recovery time.

  1. I love compression clothing- I’ve only ever used pants, but they make me feel great when running (and afterwards!). I’d love to try the DNAmic Women’s 1/2 Tights in any of the colors they offer!


  2. I wear compression socks, shorts and leggings and they make a huge difference in my runs and recovery but I have not tried anything from SKINS yet. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!


  3. I have, and I love to wear compression leggings when I run. I would love the same pair of capris that you are wearing!


  4. I’ve worn compression socks but haven’t tried tights. As an aging runner I think they would be helpful in recovery after hard efforts. I would choose the DNAmic Men’s Long Tights if I was chosen as the winner!


  5. I wear compression socks when I run but have never tried tights. I want to try them though! I would pick either the dynamic women’s long tights or the dnamix women’s superpose shorts.


  6. My wife and I both run in procompression socks and love them for recovery. I would love to own a pair of the dnamic men’s long tights.
