What is the difference between Rehband sleeves?

Hey all,

What exactly is the difference between these two models?

http://www.rehband.com/7751-knee-support-rehband.html

http://www.rehband.com/7953-knee-support-rehband.html

(Both WFS)

I know of a distributor nearby, and was told the lighter blue model sells for $30 a sleeve, and the grey (core) model sells for $53 a sleeve, so I was curious as to what the difference is between them.

Thanks, Daniel

Thickness.

I can't believe the 3mm ones are any different than whatever neoprene knee sleeve you can pick up at the local drug store or sporting goods store.

The gray ones are OK.

The 7mm Rehbands from Jackal's Gym are probly what you want.

To address the size issue, I am 5'10", 190# I wear small. Medium would be OK too.

Re: What is the difference between Rehband sleeves?

When I was doing research, nearly everything I read pointed towards the older blue model. That's the one I went with. I have nothing to compare it to, but I love it.

EDIT: I just realized that the blue one the OP posted aren't the same as mine. Marshall posted the ones that I bought.

Unless of course you have the gray ones and wear them inside out.

Re: What is the difference between Rehband sleeves?

I was looking into rehband sleeve's. I have been told to go with 7mm old blue one instead of the 5mm gray one. My question is what size to get. I measured at 36 cm so I'm in between a med and large on the jackal store website. i was thinking with going one size smaller and possible going to maybe a small. Any idea's what I should order.

Re: What is the difference between Rehband sleeves?

Go for the 5mm. I've found the blue ones too thick, they bunch up behind the knee and you don't get the same freedom of movement. I've actually stopped wearing knee sleeves, stretch/foam roll your quads, ice your patellar ligament and you won't have to wear knee sleeves.

I prefer the 7mm. They seem to be Warmer and I love mine. I feel like 5mm wouldn't provide the same spring out of the bottom.

I ordered the 7mm, and I got a small. They are supposed to arrive today so we'll see how they feel for tomorrow's session!
