Australian company SKINS started manufacturing compression clothing in 1996.  Their garments are designed to supply more oxygen to the muscles to improve power and stamina and also aid recovery. Initially they produced compression clothing to help recovery post exercise but the range has grown to include clothing that can be used during exercise and competition to improve blood circulation.

Rigorous and continuous product testing and development means SKINS is at the forefront of compression clothing with no product being released without major research and professional approval first. A testament to this is the fact that their first pair of tights took five years of testing and redesigning before they were released to the market and now they have over 160 different products and counting.
