Had some SKINS purchased for me, anyone else using these, very impressed with the leggings so far.

I mus admit Ive never heard of these. News to me. Think I'd possibly look like Max Wall in them though!

Well I did not do the full mirror check out. But these SKINS were amazing. I suffer with poor circulation and oedema due to medication. We climbed to the Poqueira Hut where we spent the night. Overnighted in the SKINS and can only say they did what they said on the label. Continued wear during the next day, and whilst others complained of aching limbs, I had none of these symptoms. Very happy.

No cant really see me in these things. Would look a bit like Max Wall
To be honest, in the depths of a hard winter here in the Sierra Nevada I find that the Paramo cascadas or salopettes sufficient even in -15 air temps.
Even on the Patagonian icefield no leggings were necessary. Maybe Guernsey though?

Anna am I right in that these skins take away the lactic acid so you dont get the achy muscles etc
RE: SKINS - La Gringa - 03-24-2011 09:14 PM
I my cascadas and would take much persuasion to change
RE: SKINS - Tinkerbell - 03-25-2011 10:16 AM
Yeah cascadas are the best but I think the skins are a completely different thing not to be worn instead of trousers but to worn under, like Anna says good for those people who have bad circulation

Bet they get a bit stinky after a couple of days
RE: SKINS - Tinkerbell - 03-25-2011 08:01 PM
Well stinky if I was in them, pheweee
