New styles of men's tights at Activskin

Hosiery brand and retailer Activskin has launched two new styles of tights for men.

A859 Thermofabric Full Support Tights with Fly

This style of opaque tights for guys is designed to deliver climate control with good compression. The male-comfort front panel has a convenient but unobtrusive fly opening. Because of the front panel there is no need for a gusset here. These are especially popular among construction workers, public service workers, and other men who want warm legwear and good compression for all-day support but can’t stand the bulkiness of other cool weather undergarments. Plus it won't be too hot indoors. Can be worn with shorts in cool weather. Great for sports (biking and running) because on cool days it will provide warmth at the beginning of your workout without getting too warm later on and good compression enhances blood flow to legs and feet. If you want warmth and comfort indoors and out, this is your style.

Available in Black only.

Sizes: L, XL and XXL. M coming soon.

A678 Microfabric Support Sheer Pantyhose with Fly

The leg fabric in these tights glides well under trousers. The reinforced brief provides support, too, making it perfect for guys who want to be cool and comfortable and have just a little bit of slimming at the abdomen. This style features a lightly reinforced toe for added strength and durability. Even if the fly opening isn't used for its functionality, the lower fly panel stretches to form a pouch to support "male equipment" very comfortably, making this style unequivocally the most comfortable men's pantyhose on the market.

This is a new style from Activskin's supplier. Initial feedback is that the legs may be on the short side. If you're tall, order one size up to get the leg length you need.

Sizes: L, XL and XXL only.

Available in Beige. Black, and Tan.
