If the reason no one uses these is lack of support then let me know because I am not looking for support. I just want something to keep my knees warm so perhaps these would work well for me.
Follow up. I got the above Valeo's and I have no complaints. I went with larges. I think the size is the correct size for me although I don't know that they were exactly designed for some one with enormously ripped quads like me....just kidding. Seriously, they fit a little loose below the knee cap but then could be a little larger for above the knee cap. I am constantly having to pull them up.
Maybe I am trying to wear them too high. I like to get them roughly about 2 inches above the top of my knee cap with a straight leg. I am wearing them right now and using a ruler. That gives me roughly about 4 inches from the bottom tip of the knee cap to the end of the knee sleeves on my shin.
As far as use, I used them when I was trying to set a new 1RM on Back squat. Then I put them on very sporadically if I feel my knees are getting over used. I've probably worn them 5 - 10 workouts in the last 2 months.
I will probably upgrade to those Rehband knee sleeves once I wear these ones out. I mean they were only a $24 investment for the two of them just to see if I liked using knee sleeves. Also, they sell Valeo at Academy Sports I noticed. Are there any retail stores that sell Rehbands?
