Rehband?

Just wondering where is the best place to buy Rehband knee and elbow sleeves from?

I have heard they are the best and will get some to keep these joints warm during strength workouts

Same here, mine are supposed to arrive tomorrow.
I have a pair of Tommy Kono's, they really helped me get over a 2+ year case of patellar tendinosis, but after about 8 months they started to split near the seam. I've heard the the Rehbands are much more durable, we'll see.

I ripped my Kono's in 3 months IIRC, have had Rehbands for 2+ years now.

Re: Rehband?

Anyone have any experience with the "new style" knee sleeves? How do they compare to the original blue sleeves?

Re: Rehband?

Go for the original blue, they are 7mm thick compared to the new ones which are 5mm thick.

turn them inside out and let them air out inbetween each use, that will help.

I just wash them and airdry them every few months though


edit: I mean throw them in the washer
