Default Knee Wraps?

Anyone have an opinion on Tommy Kono vs. Rehband vs. any other knee wrap/sleeve for weightlifting? Thanks.

I use Vulkan knee wraps and really like them. I guess they're popular in the U.K. Can't remember where I bought them, but I remember they cost alot less than the Rehbands

I've never used either of them. I've heard that the TK knee wraps are neoprene and will make you sweat quite a bit. The Rehbands, not so much. Don't know about any other brands, sorry. I've looked at the Rehbands myself, but haven't gotten any yet.

I have the TK knee sleeves. I can verify that they do indeed make your knees sweat, but I wouldn't consider it an issue (unless your sharing them with someone and don't have the opportunity to wash them which would be pretty gross). My knees definitely feel well lubed when I take them off after my workout, as advertised. The only issue I have with them is that one of them is pretty hard to get on and my fingers can get pretty worked trying to slide it up my leg.

I would definitely recommend the Rehband. You get all the benefit without the terrible time getting them on. I HAD both. The TKs tore after about a month, so I finally bit the bullet and got the Rehbands and they have worked ever since.

If you can get them on without too much trouble, then they are prob about right. I've known people looking to get extra lbs from them that have gone down a size from recommended. I have never known anyone to go up a size from recommended.

You will be happy with your purchase. They hold up well.

Thinking about picking up some rehbands soon, would you guys recommend the older blue style or the newer gray style?

I measured where it said to and got 36.5cm, so I'm right on the edge of medium & large (m 33-36, l 36-39cm) should I go for the medium's or larges?
I have no idea whether it will be beneificial or not, but I know often times my knees are stiff and if this will help keep my knees feeling better then it should pay off in workouts.

Thanks, Hunter!

Get the medium, I like the old style better.
