Not the best around but value for money.

I got the short sleeve ones and it is OK for me so far.

Agreed! look very nice. Any GR also interested, can consolidate and shipped over together to save shipping cost?

If it is good enough, may be can consider selling them here..hee.

Anyone interested in this business opportunity?

I do not own a skins product but tried to wear one when there was a offer in a golf shop in KL; the feeling is different as I think Skins can compress more and more rubber feeling.

This one that I bought is like lycra/spandex; like the material of swimwear.

Both made me looks slim instantly due to the compression which is good. Cool

I bought the short sleeve ones as I am afraid that it will be not hot for me here although it has UV protection and can absorb sweat fast.

I honestly bought it because it is cheap; online buying have its problems like not sure of the actual size is right for you, which model to choose from, if the product is as per advertised, etc.

I bought the Pro Under model after advice for 'spiderman' and so far it is OK for me.

I am abt 1.76m and abt 95 kg; it is grey area in their size chart; I bought a XL size and it is OK for me.

If cannot wear for golf then I will use it for swimming with my kids lah ! Laughing

I did a brief comparison of Bio Gear against Skins sometime mid last year. See here.

Personally, I think paying a bit more for compression clothing is good since it helps. But that's a personal preference.

Yes it is. I bought 2 myself and a few for friend. As for sizing and from experience in buying, I would be more pessimistic. I.e. If you are current wearing a L for Skins, then you might want to choose S for for SuperF. The reason is that the materials are different and compression is not as strong as Skins. So having tighter sizing would be give you similar feel.

The product is directly sent from Korea and it is very fast well. Its is not an apple to apple comparison to Skins as the materials and compression is different. But then again, if you are looking for something similar price 1/4.

Here's some pics, the one in blue is Skins. The black is SuperF.
