SKINS A400 Compression Tights

Price £72

The quality and substance behind the considerable style really shines through in the A400s. The graduated compression supports and oxygenates muscles from top to bottom, and the silky, soft fabric moves naturally with the flow of the run - it feels as though the tights are working in harmony with your body. For men there is relief in that the crotch area is contoured, serving up what the makers call 'better ball control'.  The material offers UV protection of UPF 50+ and has an antimicrobial treatment that should keep bacteria at bay. There's even a key pocket in the back, though given the tight fit, this feels a bit like having a key surgically implanted under your skin.
