    I was hugely dubious about the “skin cooling” technology when the assistant in a high street store pitched it to me. I really couldn’t get my head around why/how Skins Ice would differ from the standard Skins products.

    At £70 from Amazon (£75 on the high street), the item is pretty expensive; however, the affect is phenomenal.

    I play ice hockey in the UK mid-leagues and have always had a problem with overheating (wearing more padding than a bomb disposal technician!). Unfortunately, as is the nature of the beast, it’s essential to wear and under-layer to prevent the abrassive pads rubbing against your skin; the obvious side effect being the extra layer and thus further thermal insulation.

    I’d tried everything from loose fitting gym shirts, t-shirts with panels cut away and tight long sleeve shirts – I’d even tried wearing no underlayer at all but the discomfort was just too much.

    So I decided to take the finanical hit and go for Skins Ice…

    Wow. Not only do the garments fit well, they give you a total range of motion that you don’t get with other compression tops! The “cooling” element is a bit of a bizarre feeling at first; the garment doesn’t actually cool you, but the infused menthol gives a tingling effect making you “think” your skin is cooler. This helps you keep your comfort levels up and your mind on the game. Although the menthol on the garment will open your airwaves well, because I have so many layers over the Skin I would always recommend rubbing a good dose of Vicks on the chest panel – a la Patrick Viera!

    The extra bonus is the compression element of the garment. Ice hockey is a very demanding sport on both the upper and lower body with major muscles such as quads, biceps and triceps fatiguing relatively quicker than in many other sports. I’ve found that the Skins range really do enhance endurance AND ease muscle recovery (although nothing will help better than a 2 hour soak in a hot bath with salts!

    5* for effectiveness; 3* for price – therefore I’m giving this item a 4*.

    Hope this review helps you out.
