Yep - get the old blue ones. I've had mine a couple years -- they are great (and legal in USAPL/IPF if you ever want to powerlift).

Let them air out after use - don't throw them into a closed gym bag or the trunk of your car. To wash, throw them in your washer on cold. Let them hang dry.

I like Tommy Kono knees sleeves alot, really good to use when doing olympic lifts and squats.

However, I wouldn't use them for metacons, as your knee sweats like crazy just wearing them. So it kind of depends on what activity you are doing.
The problem I have seen with TK sleeves is that they rip pretty easily. I haven't see that issue as much with the Rehbands
