Knee sleeves
 
I'm looking into getting some knee sleeves and have run into some problems.

Rehbrand site was confusing on what size to get and Titan had a good size chart but is out of large and apparently will be out for a while.

So any good tips on a good brand, where to get them, and/or how to measure yourself to get the right size?

Thanks.

Rehbands bar none. Best sleeves.

As for sizing, depends on how tight you want them.

This is an interesting topic, because I am also looking for a new set of knee bands.

I am going with the rehbands, because of the great reviews they get. However, they are very pricey.

Right now I have a pair of Tommy Kono Knee Bands, I am with them. They give great support and warmth, however they did tear after only a few months.

If you are looking for a cheaper alternative, you can check out vulcan support gear

I am getting the elbow sleeves, and warm pants from Vulkan for Christmas, so I can give some reviews after then

I have a pair of rehbands and I really like them- does the job.

Iam about to order a pair of these though, they are double ply!

I am getting some Strength Shop ones too. For Americans what about EliteFTS? Seem reasonably priced...

Thanks for the tips!

I have no idea how to figure out this chart I'm sad to say.

Rehbrand is even worse and there's whole forum discussions about how they are difficult to size right. And for the cost, I'd want them sized right without having to ship them back and forth a few times.

EFS sleeves suck, believe it or not.

Strengthshop is the way forward, I'm not sure of the shipping to the states but I would check pricing as they are very reasonably priced and you may find them competitive even including the shipping. The sleeves come in three strengths, single, double and triple ply and about 6 sizes available for knees or elbows.

OK, good to know and I almost got some Tommy Kono's but JW's comment about tearing makes me skittish.

So after some reasearch today, I think I'm going with 77's suggestion and I must say Jackal's sizing chart is a million times more useful than Rehbrand.com!

Thanks!

Edit: I checked strengthshop and along with the pound conversion problem for my poor tired head, I also think shipping would bump the cost too much. Cheers Fazc
