This has been done before but hey I'd like some recent and fresh views!

What's everyones favourite knee sleeves for training in? I see strengthshop have their own neoprene ones now has anyone used them and how they compare to rehbands or vulkans?

I have the strengthshop ones. They're OK at keeping the area warm but don't really offer much compressive support. Compared to Vulkan/Rehband, they're like Tesco value, but if they're all you can afford they're better than nothing Happy

If money is really really tight, you can get lonsdale neoprene knee sleeves for 3/sleeve on sportsdirect website.

They're obviously incredibly low end and cheap compared to proper stuff but they do seem to do a job. My knees are practically steaming when I take them off and I haven't had any niggles since I bought them

Lol, c**t! Grin

I'd agree though, not the same level of compression as Rehband. Vulkan are not great IMO, I'd either go for the Tesco's finest (Rehbands) or the Value (SS) Happy In saying that, I now use the SS ones on knees and elbows for 'general' training, and the fabric ones (like the Thors) on the knees for more support sometimes. They won't be that different from ones like the Lonsdales which are probably a bit cheaper though.

The lancaster assasin has been seen out in the supermarket and pubs wearing his bumblebee knee sleeves + elbow sleeves. Perhaps he could offer some feedback Grin

Thanks for the response guys. If I come into some cash I may well just get some Rehbands then, or even try the cheaper ones to start with.

What's people use them for?

Ideally I want something that is going to keep my knee(s) warm and offer a little support as I am returning to training in a couple of weeks post knee surgery.

the worst thing for me with knee sleeves is that they slip down and dont stay in place on my leg. might be worth looking a round for a short knee sleeve that will not slip

I have tendonitis in both knees, keeps them warm and reduces any pain while training.


And Buzz - I use a Tesco value electric whisk. It smells like burning plastic, but it does the job I ask of it!

I've got a pair of the old style 2 ply Thor knee sleeves and can't fault them, haven't tried Rehbands so can't compare with them but would say that the Thor's are far superior to Vulkans.

Rehband are the dogs bollox ( 7mm ) ones

but if your just going to buy the 5mm ones id honestly go with the SS ones which are highly viewed IMO

I Have

- 7mm Rehband Knee Supports
- 5mm Rehband Knee Supports
- SS Ones

I Honestly Use All 3 At Different Times, Sometimes Double Up The SS WITH Rehband If Squatting Heavy Say!

All have There Uses!
