Rehband is the "blue brand" that Strongmen use. They dont offer much support but they keep your knees very warm. They say if you buy them a size smaller than you need that they will be more supportive though.

I also have a pair of the Inzer knee sleeves (XT's or something?). They are okay but give no warmth. Fairly supportive though.

Dont even waste time with Mueller or McDavid crap.

Rehbands will last a LONG time. I have had mine for almost 3 years and they are in great shape even after all the stones and such.

LOL.

That will piss onlymen off.


Rehband (the old version, navy blue) are awesome.

For some odd reason the company started to make their products in a new, thinner material.

I don't know, perhaps they wanted to be a little more "metrosexual". ::)


Anyway, this darkblue or black material is two layered and will split up after awhile.

Totally worthless (maybe they copied Tommy Kono?).

So get the old navy blue version if you can.

I got a pair of pants - they're awesome.

The scent is awesome too. 8)

The scent is not so awesome after a hard day of lifting, hahaha!


Get the BLUE Rehbands. You may have to look around a bit but they are worth it.
