I am wheel-chair bound and I wear my Maximus Tights over light supports or as a warm alternative to the supports, to give myself a break from the supports. I would recommend them to all men and women, especially those who can't wear the cotton-rich 100 denier types because of sensitive skin or pressure sores being a problem, especially wheel-chair users. The reason for this is that the nylon doesn't absorb and hold moisture in the same way cotton can, which can lead to the problems mentioned above, even with a 100 denier thick weave. The quality of the Maximus 100 denier Tights I bought are very good, haven't snagged with my rough hands yet, wash well by hand and dry quickly and haven't shown signs of 'pilling' or 'bobbling' that can ruin the comfort of a garment. The body felt a little smaller than I'd expect, especially as I haven't got a big bum but the 'one welt-to-waist' is desirable and the waistband is a comfy fit, so I can put up with the body feeling looser. That aside, although the abscence of Elastane or Lycra is apparent to me, they are comfortable and warm and adaptable enough to wear over the support tights I have to wear, without adding too much of their own compression. Again, I feel the quality of the garments are very good and I'll be trying the Support Tights from UK Tights next.

I reviewed these tights on the Hosiery For Men blog. My overall conclusion was:
'The Maximus 100 Denier Opaque Tights are a very decent mid-priced pair of men's tights. The fabric is good quality and they fit well. They will provide everything that most guys will be looking for in a pair of black opaque tights: fit, warmth and comfort under trousers, shorts or sports clothing. These tights are also hard-wearing and therefore represent good value.'
'The matt appearance, with only a slight sheen, means they can be worn with confidence instead of socks.'
