Sizing Rocktape Knee Caps

I measured around my middle patella and it is 14.5". I know a lot of folks go smaller than what the manufacturers generally list for sizing options. Would this be the same for the 5mm Rocktape Knee Caps. I'm trying to decide between medium and small.

Re: Sizing Rocktape Knee Caps

I'd love to hear an opinion also

I measured my knee and I'm 14inch!
Was gonna order the medium (13.5-14.5) but didn't realise people recommend ordering small!

Shod I order the small then? Or would medium be ok?

Re: Sizing Rocktape Knee Caps

Re: Sizing Rocktape Knee Caps

I know this isn't exactly the best help, as I haven't measured myself. But I am 6'1", 205ish, decent leg strength/size (max back squat is around 400#), and I ordered a medium and they fit/perform perfectly.

Re: Sizing Rocktape Knee Caps

I measured mine around center of the patella and it was 15.5". I got the mediums and that is the right size for me. You could probably go with the small if you are at 14".

Re: Sizing Rocktape Knee Caps

Does anyone have any experience with Rocktape customer service? I measured 15" around the center of my patella so I ordered a medium for my Knee Caps. I have had them for just over a month and they are starting to develop (for lack of a better term) "stretch marks" around the sides of sleeves right at my knee. I've hand washed them a few times and hang dry them after each workout. I am going to try to contact Rocktape to have them replaced but am just wondering if anyone has been through this before.
