Rehband knee sleeves are overpriced and under sized. Modell's/Sports authority has some cheap generic Neoprene knee sleeves which is what you want to keep your knees warm. You also just want to get a generic white , or white with red stripe set of knee wraps that have lots of strech and aren't too stiff and you will be good to go.

I have the Rehband knee sleeves for both the elbows and knees. The blue ones are awesome and I have had them for about 3 years now without them wearing out. They are pretty pricey, but the quality and warmth is well worth the coin in my opinion. They do run a touch small but they stretch a little after ordering. I also have their warm pants and they are pretty amazing as well to squat in, especially if your hips get tight during squatting like mine do.

They would cut off circulation, so I cut the plies apart and use the one-ply now. They keep my elbows warm and I can wear them the whole workout without any numbness. The knees sleeves are a little more supportive but I have a size that is larger than I need. They sometimes cause circulation issues but all I do is pull them down between sets.
All of this, except I use the EFS Heavy Duty knee sleeves and the APT Single ply Elbow Sleeves.
