Rehband knee sleeve sizing

Looking to get a pair of blues. I measure at the top of a large but want 2 make sure they fit snug. The web site says to size down for competitive fit. And suggestions on sizing? I measure 38. Large is 36-39. Thanks

Re: Rehband knee sleeve sizing

Considering its in centimeters you should be ok! I did the same for my elbows and knees. Rehbands are really just for warming so youll be ok either way I think.

Did you end up getting the Large? If so how do they fit? I measure at 38 as well.

Re: Rehband knee sleeve sizing

Another vote here. I called on Friday about sizing. I wanted a tight fit. Then placed my order. Later that afternoon I got tracking info and will have them on Tues.

Re: Rehband knee sleeve sizing

He asked for my height and weight. I'm 5'11" 210lb. I went w a Medium. I got them yesterday and they are tight. I can get them on with some work but that's what I wanted. I wear a M in Tommy Konos but the Rehbands might be tighter. I will use them tomorrow and give a short review.

What was your knee measurement?
Mine measures to just over 36cm, but I'm about 30 pounds lighter...

Thanks.

Thanks.

16 1/2", sorry I'm a little lazy atm to look up the # in cm, my calves are also 16 1/2".

I wore them today for 5x5 squats, ohp, and DL. I flipped them inside out and worked them up. They were very tight, not uncomfortable, nor did it cut off circulation. They kept my knees warm and were very supportive. A decent amount of sweat came out. * with my Tommy konos there is clearly more warmth as the sweat literally runs out a lot*

I am very happy with them. I here they are long lasting. I really liked the TK's also but after 2 months they are ripping already, also note they are half price. The Rehbands you pay per sleeve. In the next 2 weeks I will be using a pair of Elite fts Super heavy sleeves.
