I'm a big fan of UnderArmour compression. I've tried several other brands and keep going back to UA. I've never tried Skins, as I don't think they sell it nearby. But I've heard good things. There are cheaper nockoffs of UA and Skins, and they are OK for casual workouts, but for true compression, go with the real stuff. Besides being better, it lasts a whole lot longer. I've been wearing some of my UA for almost 10 years and it still looks new, if you take care of it and don't wash it in hot water or with bleach.
