Re: Compression Gear

Ahahaha...I was just going to post that I placed the order and it shipped like, 10 minutes later! That is awesome! Really looking forward to these, if they are as good as I hear, I will be picking up more!

Any plans to make sleeves? I like them for protection during muscle ups and ring dips. I tear my arms apart!

Yeah I just looked at the tracking info. Should arrive today. Not sure what took them 4 days to get from the Post Office in MI to the Post Office in FL. Supposed to be 2-3 day service. I'm guessing it had something to do with all the extra volume for tax filings.

Re: Compression Gear

I'm getting ready to place an order but have a sizing question for Greg...

Regarding tights, I'm 5'8" about 163, but can fluctuate into the 155s. The size chart has me on the fringe of small and medium. I want to make sure I'm getting significant compression without worrying about them potentially getting stretched out. Like my Skins have seemed to do. Which size would you reccomend?

In addition, my wife is 5', 125-132 and has a posterior chain of someone you know spends a lot of time squatting (if you know what I mean). She's also on the fringe of small and medium. Any reccomendations?

Thanks.

Hi Tim,

I'm guessing you could go either way. I would recommend that you try the small to start and then if you don't like how they fit I will swap them for a medium for you, I'll pay the shipping both ways.

For your wife, I would definitely recommend the medium.

All in all it will really depend on fit and preferences, but in my experience, those would be my recommendations.

Re: Compression Gear

Just dropped your orders off at the post office. You should have tracking numbers in your email. I hope you both like the gear!

Someone asked a few posts ago and I forgot to answer, yes, we will have sleeves eventually. Hopefully in a few months.

Thanks everyone for the support and encouragement!

Re: Compression Gear

I got my shipment in last week. I ordered socks and a shirt (short sleeves). I have under armor compression gear and skins. I will say that I think this stuff is far better than my other gear one week into it. I love the 'little things' like stitching that doesn't fray your first time out, compression that feels good, but doesn't require a medium (wearing a large from Greg) to be get that feel. There is a nice banding on the bottom with some soft plastic to hold it in place.

For the price Greg charges and the quality I feel one gets, I could see this stuff taking off easily. If your looking for something in the compression market, give Greg's a try.

For those wondering, I bought all my gear, didn't ask for a discount (used the cf board one) and am giving this review to help the countless people who aren't sure what brand to buy.

If you get anything buy the socks. I feel they help the most compression wise and work great for dead lifts, cleans, snatches, etc.

Thanks Greg for making a quality product at a fair price!
