Rehband Knee Sleeves have long been a popular choice amongst lifters and often used as a benchmark against which other knee sleeves are compared (see: Rehband Knee Sleeves vs. SBD Knee Sleeves).

Today we’ll be comparing:
- Rehband Knee Sleeves 7mm 7051 ($80/pair on Amazon)
- Nordic Lifting Knee Sleeves 7mm ($40/pair on Amazon)

If you need USAPL or IPF approved sleeves, go with Rehband or SBD sleeves.
