Compression done RIGHT! SKINSA400 Compression Pants Review

Disclaimer:  I received SKINS Compression A400 to use and review as part of being a BibRave Pro.  Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out BibRave 
to review, find and write race reviews.


That is a great slogan for the SKINS Compression A400.  When I found out that I would be testing and reviewing these compression pants I couldn't have been happier.  Many of my running friends rave about how amazing SKINS clothing is and I must say their reviews are accurate!  From the moment I put them on,  they felt completely and totally comfortable.  

What I noticed right away was that the pants, while providing optimal compression, were easy to get on.  If you can imagine the commercial of the girl trying to get into her skinny jeans and button the top button.... that's a lot like what I feel like when I try to put on other compression pants.  Many of them are SO tight it takes an acrobatic act to get them all the way up!   Plus, when you finally DO get them in place, don't even try breathing!

I commented right away  to my husband that  'these pants feel just like silk.'  They are lightweight, breathable, and have advanced temperature and moisture management.   I recently wore them during a race and when I was finished the pants were wet on the outside but I felt completely dry on the inside!  How cool is that?  I had absolutely no chaffing and remained very comfortable throughout my run.   I especially like the high-waist design;  it holds me in perfectly in all the right places. 

Typically, I run in the very early mornings when it's dark.  In Minnesota in the Fall, the temperatures vary from about 35-50 degrees.  While testing these pants in the early morning, I never felt too hot or too cold.  However, due to our very dark mornings, the only feature I wished this particular pair of pants had was reflection.  Reflection is a very important component for me and it is something that I look for on all of my running gear.  I do know that other models of SKINS compression do come with reflective properties.

All in all, these compression pants will certainly become a staple of my running wardrobe!  Make sure to get yours now! 

Through the month of October,  SKINS is honoring a discount code.  Used code BIBRAVE20 for 20% off your order!  Plus check out our bibchat on Twitter.  8 PM CST.  You could WIN a pair for yourself!
