The inspiration behind SKINS was an Aussie skier with a simple, bold ambition: to feel ten years younger so he could ski all day, party all night and be ready the next morning to do it all again.
He knew that improved blood circulation would supply more oxygen to his muscles, helping them work harder for longer and recover faster – so he consulted with NASA and other experts to confirm he was on to something. Turns out he was. Soon word got out that there were these things called SKINS that improved your power, speed, stamina and recovery. Pro athletes were the first to start wearing them. Before long, amateur athletes also joined the party.
SKINS garments wrap the muscles in a second ‘skin’ and apply the correct levels of pressure to accelerate blood flow and increase oxygen delivery to working muscles. Doing this will result in the following:
1. Treat your working muscles to more oxygen and they’ll repay you with improved power, stamina and faster recovery time.
2. Wrapping and supporting key muscle groups will help to reduce movement and focus direction resulting in less vibration in your muscles, less soft tissue damage, less soreness after exercise and decreased risk of muscular injury during times of fatigue.
As the only therapeutic compression sportswear brand supported by numerous independent studies published in peer reviewed medical journals and also the only compression garments recommended and endorsed by the Australian Physiotherapy Association, SKINS is loved by both pro and amateur athletes.

And what is SKINS A200 compression wear?
The SKINS A200 range is for people who are passionate about being active – whether running, hitting the gym or playing team sports. Men who train or compete because it keeps them fit, because they want to get in shape, and because they love it.
Built on SKINS’ scientifically proven engineered gradient compression which enhances circulation and delivers more oxygen to working muscles to help boost performance, the SKINS A200 garments have also been designed to wrap and support specific muscle groups.
A200 garments also feature SKINS’ warp knit fabric, moisture wicking, temperature management and 50+ UV protection. The range also offers a superior fit using a unique BMI (Body Mass Index)/anthropometrical algorithm takes into account the wearer’s height, weight, and chest size.
The SKINS A200 range for men, include shorts, half tights and long tights, and sleeveless, short-sleeve and long-sleeve tops – all in SKINS’ signature black with yellow stitching. Most items are also available in white and flesh tone, ideal for use under team kit.
