Greg's compression shorts are very different from what you get from Nike or UA. His material is legitimate compression - not just spandex. They're good stuff though. I really like the shorts. The socks are awesome, too - they help keep you feeling fresh while lifting. They also help not scrape your shins while dead lifting

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

I'm not affiliated with Greg (Glight) or Spun in any way.

Full disclosure: he did give me a free pair of socks when I took him and his wife out for lunch.

Just ordered some compression shorts (order 933), went with mediums. Wasn't sure if small or medium would be better.. I'm 5'7 155ish. Feel free to swap it for a small if you think that'd fit me better.

Thanks Glight!

My next order will be for some of these, mostly for this reason.

Thanks for your order and for all the kind words everyone.

You're about the same height / weight ratio as mike and I think he has been happy with mediums, so I will stay with that. If you get them and wish they were tighter let me know and we'll swap them out for you at our expense.

I've been so happy with all the positive feedback we've received! It's really motivating and makes me so glad that we started this company.

I wear our products literally every day and have never felt more fresh even though I'm on the wrong side of 30 and have a pretty ridiculous workout volume.

If anyone has any questions let me know.

Thanks for all the support.

Congratulations on the business! I'm unsure of sizing though. If my size is a little off, would you be willing to exchange for me?

I think for your size scale, actual measurements instead of weight would be better. Just my 2 cents...

Absolutely. We support all our purchases from cradle to grave. We've tried doing measurements, but then it becomes a question of which measurement to use and if you use multiple measurements it becomes a 3d Size chart which is really hard to interpret. Thank you for the suggestion though.

The height and weight has been pretty accurate so far. We end up having to swap 5% of our orders at most.

Then get two pair - one will be your beater compression socks and the other will be your dress compression socks.
