My full reviews ( Size, Quality, Price, Reasonable ) ! Amazing and beyond expectation product !

1. SIZING ( My knee size = 39 cm, I tried both MD and LG )
Lots of question about this. It is not always recommended to get a size smaller from your measurement. Like me, I am a 5"8 200lbs heavy squatter, my quads are big, while I have a normal calves. My measurement around straight knee size is a little over 39 cm. I should have wear a Large. And yes, in my case ( Large quads, normal calves ) = Buy a large. I used to try on the Medium and it fit my knee and calves. But very very tightened my quad. It created a uncomfortable because it was too tight.
So If you are a GIRL or a guy with normal quad, definitely go with 1 SIZE SMALLER than your measurement !
If you are a person with big quad, go with the MEASUREMENT SIZE. Don't buy a size smaller ( Too tight = Uncomfortable ) !
This product is made of 100% Neoprene foam, 100% Polyamide cover and lining. It gives a nice stretch and little re-bounce when doing squat, leg press... It WILL stretch a little over time and it CAN stretch. Very comfortable. You can either wash it by hand or washing machine but PLEASE LET AIR DRY!
You will need a pair so it will be around $90. It seems pricey to some of you but remember there will be a reason why it s too pricey. This will last for a long long long time. One of my friend told he have been using it for 5 years and half and it still works great. You probably don't want to spend $30 $40 for a pair of normal knee sleeves and replace them 2 3 times a year. However it is your choice. But use common senses
4. REASONABLE & WHO CAN USE IT
There is a reason why so many power lifters, world strong men, and Olympic lifters use and recommend them. By saying this, does not mean that a normal person is not suitable. Everyone can use this. I mean EVERYONE. From a high school sport players to a heavy weight lifter woman, or a world class bodybuilder. It can also help healing process after injury surgeons. Help reduce impact to you knees if you have a knees problems. SO, as long as you need a great support for your knees and keep them warm to prevent injury, or to feel safety, or need a mental support for your workout, this is for you. However, it is recommended that using these sleeves for 2 to 3 hrs of activity only. Because it s Neoprene.
There is also a reason why these products get straight 5 stars over hundreds people rating. :)
So, it is your choice. However, You won't be disappointing on these knee sleeves investment for your life.
