You can wait to my site is up if you want to see everything in its official form or you can PM me with what items you want and your height and weight and I will give you a recommendation in terms of sizing and let you know the total price and my paypal address.

Direct credit card payment would have to wait until the site is up.

Let me know!

Re: Compression Gear

Would there still be a good amount of compression for us skinny guys? I'm 5'11 145, I'm working on gaining weight but it's not too easy for me. And we could get these through you early if we go the paypal route?

Re: Compression Gear

Jumped on Greg Light's offer last week and purchased the Compression Long Pants through Spun Performance.

Order process was hassle-free, quickly shipped, and arrived to me in AZ on Friday. Out of the package, the pants looked well-made, i.e. no missed/loose stitching, and contained nice detailing around the waistband.

Tried them on Friday night, fit and feel surpassed my expectations. The compression was immediately evident around the calf and quad/hamstring.

After a heavy-volume lower body session (team filthy fifty @ 120reps/exercise/3person team followed by row/run interval finisher) on Saturday, tested the pants overnight. On Sunday, legs felt fresh and wasn't discomforted by the fit/feel during the night.

Would and have recommended this product line as a great alternative to the higher priced options in the market. Thanks Greg for providing a great product line to this community!

you don't need calf sleeves. you need to wear 12" compression socks. compress the foot as well as the calf. i wear 12" Swiftwick Socks. made from olefin wool, they're super thin on your feet. very light. it feels natural, as if you're wearing nothing. Swiftwicks are great for running, box jumps, and of course you won't scrape your shins during deadlifts. Swiftwick also makes socks for Rogue Fitness.

Re: Compression Gear

I haven't been able to get into sleeping in these, but overall, for the life of me I can't imagine what $150 pants would offer that these don't. They're great. I feel a different during my workout. Do they aid recovery? I don't know. I'm still sore the day after. But I do appreciate them DURING the workout.

Greg is in Michigan, and I received these in California three days after ordering.

Re: Compression Gear

Bought shorts and socks from Greg. Super fast service, very nice gear. A FUBAR with the post office gave us bad tracking data, Greg sent a second shipment out without my even asking him to.

I would definetely buy stuff from Greg again!

Re: Compression Gear

I think the post office is using mine for a few nights, then they'll deliver. Took shorter time to get across country than to Florida, who knows? Cant wait to try them Greg...should arrive any day now.
