    Thinking of investing in some for upcomming season in Aus as I will (hopefully) be doing a lot more riding that previously.

    Anybody have some feedback - good or bad.
    Do you wear them as well as thermals or instead of?

    Cheers

    Swear by them!!

    They have supposedly no thermal properties but personally I do feel a little "warmer" with them on but I put that down to the "compression" feeling when wearing them. Unlike some others on here, I don't wear stockings all the time.

    Secret is to leave them on for as long as possible after the exercise. Do yourself a favour and get some!!
    Whatever!

    Best investment I have made on the slopes. I also agree they are a bit warmer. The main plus is the recovery time. I don't get anywhere near as sore following the first few days skiing. Big thinbs up from me.

    I would suggest getting the 3/4 ones that they offer in the female range and not the full length ones.

    I was wearing the full length ones in Japan last year and couldn't work out why I was getting so much pain in my boots, turns out I was wearing the skins under my socks and the stiching from the skins was well and truely indented into my skin.

    If you get the full length ones don't wear them in your boots roll them up to the top of your boot line.

    And yes, as everyone has said they are awesome.
    Regret for the things we did can be tempered by time; it is regret for the things we did not do that is inconsolable.

    Yep, did the ol tuck in of my thermals in my first year of boarding and my boots killed me. Then some guy at Zirkys told me to roll them above my boots and last year I had no probs at all.
    Will sus out the 3/4 - hopefully they are 1/4 less in price!

    Cheers again everyone
