It's Time To Replace Your Knee Sleeves December 15, 2015 19:43

 

Traditionally, there have been 3 types of knee compression available to athletes looking for varying degrees of warmth, stability and support.

 

Cloth Knee Sleeves are the thinnest type of knee sleeve available and provide mild compression and warmth to the joint and surrounding muscles. A cloth knee sleeve can be made from any number of materials including polyesters, cotton, acrylics and will usually contain lycra or spandex for their elasticity.

Neoprene Knee Sleeves are more substantial than cloth knee sleeves and come in different thicknesses. Neoprene sleeves, such as the Rehband Knee Sleeves, are a popular choice with powerlifters and crossfit enthusiasts. Although much bulkier than a cloth knee sleeve, a neoprene knee sleeve provides improved knee stability along with more warmth and greater injury prevention which make them a staple in weightlifting and crossfit gyms.

Knee Wraps are typically worn for performance and heavy powerlifting. Wraps provide extreme compression but can be cumbersome and require significant attention.

Most athletes in need of knee compression find themselves choosing between the first two alternatives: cloth knee sleeves or neoprene knee sleeves. Some people even wear compression tights with knee sleeves overtop.

But now there is a better option. Bracelayer Knee Stabilizing Compression Pants provide all of the benefits of traditional compression tights along with the warmth and stability found in neoprene knee sleeves, all while maintaining a low profile. 

Our compression pants are moisture wicking and have antimicrobial properties to keep you feeling fresh and odor free. Around the knee and along the IT band and hip is a thin 2mm layer of perforated neoprene to provide targeted compression, stability and warmth to active and recovering knees. As the perforated neoprene is only 2mm in thick, the brace layer of our compression pants is thin enough to wear under custom knee braces or knee wraps.

So stop playing around with individual knee sleeves. And stop choosing between knees sleeves or compression pants and get the all in one solution - Bracelayer Men’s or Women’s Knee Stabilizing Compression Pants!
