Why Wear Activskin®?
American Patriot John Hancock could have displayed his legs in ACTIVSKIN if he weren't two centuries too early! (portrait by John Singleton Copley, 1765, Boston Museum of Fine Art)
While Activskin men's tights, men's panty hose or mantyhose, and men's stockings are engineered to feel good and look good, they also improve athletic performance, energize and revitalize tired, aching leg muscles, provide support for men who are on their feet all day, and stimulate circulation for those who sit all day. Unlike conventional men's compression socks or support stockings, Activskin tights, pantyhose, and thigh high stockings for men are designed to provide compression and support ABOVE the knee as well as below. Compression can also help reduce swelling and decrease the dangers of circulatory problems.
Men love the extra layer of warmth without the bulk of long johns (thermal underwear), which is often TOO warm inside. So if your work takes you in and out of doors in cold weather, you'll appreciate the convenience and comfort of being able to be a little warmer when outside and not too hot inside - and NOT having to put on or remove long underwear all the time.
One of the major reasons people get cold in winter isn't so much the temperature, but the moisture. The cotton industry would have you believe that cotton is the ideal fiber for every application, but serious outdoorsmen, campers, hikers, hunters, and skiers, know that cotton absorbs moisture and gets clammy and cold. Synthetic fibers like polypropylene and nylon do not absorb moisture and instead wick it away where it can evaporate, leaving your skin dry and warm.
This phenomenon works in hot weather too. Instead of your skin feeling damp and sticky, sticking to hot car seats and outdoor furniture, the layer of thin nylon keeps your skin dry and comfortable.
And in sports like running and biking, the biggest advantage of all is that you'll be warm and comfortable at the beginning of your workout, and not too hot once you're warmed up. A great many men love the convenience of our thigh high nylon stockings - they keep your legs warm but can be easily removed without having to take off your shorts if you get too warm.
Activskin legwear for men provides an unbeatable barrier against irritation. It helps prevent chafing from running, horseback riding, bike riding, and motorcycle riding. It prevents irritation from wool slacks for men who like the looks of wool but hate the feeling. And it provides a barrier against wind and against ticks and other insects. It can also function very effectively to prevent blisters in hiking boots and running shoes, by acting as an inner sock, staying in contact with your skin, and letting the rubbing take place between the inner and outer socks.
Most of our styles of male pantyhose and male tights glide extremely well under trousers, and so keep your outer clothes looking their best as they stay on you the way they were meant to. And if you like the barefoot look in summer, wearing a sheer style in a skin matching color is much healthier than wearing shoes without socks. By keeping your feet dry you will not only be more comfortable, but you'll find your foot odor is greatly reduced. Dryness inhibits bacteria and fungus growth, promoting healthy feet.
Finally, Activskin mantyhose is easy to wash and because the fibers don't absorb moisture, it dries very quickly. It's ideal for travel, because it takes up less space than socks and underwear and you can take fewer pairs; just wash them at night in the hotel sink, hang them to dry, and they will be dry by morning. And best of all, they're inexpensive to replace if they tear or snag. You probably don't need any more reasons to buy Activskin, but if you do, see specific benefit pages.
