Compression + Design was founded in 2012 by seasoned and critical users of top athletic wear. Triathletes, runners, and cyclists by hobby, we have a passion for high quality athletic gear, and we found a need for better information about compression wear, socks, shorts, leggings, and cycling shorts. We firmly believe that the quality of engineering, construction, and materials in today’s compression gear are unlike anything the industry has seen before.
We are not affiliated with a major brand or company. Our brand is us, Compression + Design. While we offer our own thoughtfully-design products on a very limited basis, our core mission is around education and being a resource. We occasionally link to products on other sites, and in many of those cases there may be a small commission paid if you purchase from them. We encourage you to patronize our supporters, but in no way do those small commissions affect the objectivity of our reviews. We review everything that comes through our locker room, good, bad, or ugly. Our mission is to provide you accurate and reliable guidance on your journey to find the right active gear for you!
Compression + Design donates 10% of any profits made to nonprofit causes that advance health and activity in our society. Supported causes include cancer and disease research, public trail maintenance, and protection of public recreation areas.
