Actually I think the Skins material is maybe stronger than you think.
I don't baby mine; I've thrown it it the machine and also hand washed and wrung dry (like wringing mop) and hang on hanger to dry.. so far so good... Smile

Question question question...

I'm actually 173cm and 61 kg. So my built is rather "skinny"/"slim"... Referring to the skins sizing guide based on the chest size, mine falls under "S" for the size. But my concern is that the shirt length and arm length for S is shorter than I expected..

Anyone has use S size before ?

I think you should try on first before you buy, if possible. For men, its more the chest size, only because they need to be sure that it is tight enough to give you the best conpression and moisture management effects.

Can use mine as a slingbag after a while Smile The pouch makes for a good carry-all.

Thanks TSL for the tips, really appreciate, btw, why does it wear out? Does it get loose over time? Roystonn, why the heartache, isn't the Skins made of good quality and does that means the lifespan of the Skins is short especially people with love handles?

cheers

The quality is real good where the Skins Material is real real soft and thin.
So, when you hold the skins on your hand, its light and feel easily torn which I think so.

So when wringing, can't help thinking I will tear it or stretching it bigger. Razz

i used to worry about how long 1 can last but not anymore cos now i can get replacement sprays easily. but to answer your question i think each spray can last around 5 to 10 sprays depending on how much you spray each time.

for me i just concentrate the spray on 'crucial' areas like chest, top half of back, armpits, & some parts of the forearms.

I've got both Bio-Gear and Skins. Certainly, Skins is better.

since we are on this subject of Skins, it is the Womens' Open at Warren today. We have a booth the event, so we were going to ask for volunteers to help out frostee at the event.

then one of our suave male customer overheard this and volunteer to help out. he is not only providing free labour but he was so enthusiastic that he wanted to pay to be there...

however i fail to tell him that there is a lot of aunties at the event....

lets hope i am wrong and hopefully he will share his story as a skins salesman responsible for measuring up aunties.

anyone want to guess who is the suave salesman?
