From the manufacturer
The RockTape Advantage:
Workout gear should be reasonably priced and available to anyone. We also believe that every athlete deserves two sleeves – that’s why Assassins are always sold as a pair.
When stacked up next to the competition, Assassins quality and price can’t be matched.
New Competition-Grade Knee Sleeves
Three unique designs. One powerful workout weapon
New from RockTape, the ultimate weapon in workout domination – Assassins. An entirely new generation of knee sleeve, Assassins provide uncompromising support and protection allowing you to slay reps and crush WODs all while keeping your knees supported and protected.
- Three Unique Designs
- XS-XL, 5mm or 7mm
- Industry First 1-Year Warranty
Built for Competition
Assassins are designed with the unique needs of athletes in mind, and unlike sleeves from other companies, are much more than a re-purposed medical support.
The result is a pair of knee sleeves that are suitable for the most grueling workouts, lifting events, and obstacle course races – yet comfortable enough for the weekend warrior.
Built extra tall, Assassins help ensure proper stability and tracking of the knee, and can often dramatically reduce non-specific knee pain, particularly during squats.
This also keeps sleeves in place – preventing excess slip and movement during workouts, a common complaint of competing sleeves.
A synthetic fabric shell bonded to SBR neoprene and secured via double-mauser stitching keeps Assassins tightly supporting the knee joint through countless workouts.
If any pair of Assassins fails to carry out their purpose, RockTape offers the industry’s only one-year warranty against defects and premature failure from date of purchase.

Taller than standard sleeves, and carefully constructed with a unique organic design, Assassins support the knee and compressed the vastus medals oblique (VMO) at its insertion point above the patella. This helps ensure proper stability and tracking of the knee, and can often dramatically reduce non-specific knee pain, particularly during squats. The extra-tall design also keeps sleeves in place - preventing excess slippage and shifting during workouts - a common complaint of competing sleeves. Sizing Information To determine size, measure the circumference of your knee around the center of your patella (kneecap) XS:10.5" and belowSM:10.5" - 12.5"MED: 12.5" - 13.5"LG: 13.5" - 14.5"XL: 14.5" and above Thickness The 7mm thickness is typically used for heavy lifting, while the 5mm thickness is used more for conditioning.

This review is for the 7mm version. Similar to Rehband's 7mm sleeves but they're over $20 cheaper. As described, two (2) knee sleeves come with the RockTape set. I have not tried to Rehband brand sleeves but I feel more than satisfied with these sleeves.
I just got to try these out today for my strength front squat lifts and here's my initial thoughts.
-Provide lots of support for my knees
-Allowed me to squat deep and low without any pain. I have been having a slight pain in my vastus medialis muscle (I think thats the name, but its the muscle that is on the inside of your knees. But to be fair, I haven't done any heavy squats for about a week so that could have helped me too.
-Fit: I purchased the Large size after measuring the circumference of my knee to be about 16 inches and they fit nice and snug on my knee. (see fit guide below)
-Lots of places are out of stock!
-The 7mm is probably for doing strength sets.
-May want to consider getting the 5mm thick sleeves if you are going to metcon in them. The 7mm is pretty thick.
For sizing, measure the circumference of your leg around the center of your patella (knee).

*** Updated review: Downgraded to 2 stars***
The black cloth that covers up the stitching came off after only a month. It didn't really bother me as long as the sleeves didn't rip and are able to do their job.
Both Rocktape knee sleeves ripped (actually during the same day) after 4 months (2-3x a week usage for only squats). Unfortunately, they're useless now for support and are only able to keep my knees warm. I am not very satisfied with them since I would expect them to last between 8-12 months (maybe I am expecting too much?).
** Updated again*** updated to 3 stars
I contacted Rocktape and they replaced the knee sleeves free of charge. I just needed to provide receipt and a photo of the damaged sleeves. I didn't even have to ship back the old ones. But since they tore, I had already purchased Rehbands and I never looked back. So I can't comment on the quality of the newer version of the sleeves.
Disappointed this time around. Worn these 4 times and already tearing at the seam (see photo). I'm overseas in deployment so had to wait 3 weeks for these to arrive and now need to wait at least another 4-6 weeks for a replacement. Blaming this on rare defect but no less disappointing.
