After knee surgery 6 years ago - squatting, lunging and lateral movement have been challenging in a way that it never was before. These Assassin knee sleeves provide me with the kind of support that's been missing for me to squat and lunge again without feeling "uneasy" about the movement. The warmth they keep in my joints really makes the lateral movement much more comfortable and allows me to push myself better than before. I highly recommend these over wrap arounds! It's like your knee joint is being supported by strong hands. :o)
Keeping your knees stabilized is essential when it comes to lifting. KneeCaps are specifically designed to provide compression, warmth and lateral stability when performing functional movements such as dead lifts, pistols and squats. Unlike other supports, KneeCaps are extra tall and designed to compress the VMO at its insertion point above the patella to help ensure proper stability and tracking. KneeCaps also provide compression and warmth to promote blood flow. Sold as a pair!
Using the latest in stitching technology, Knee Caps now are sewn using “double” Mouser stitches which greatly enhances durability.
Designed extra tall to support your vastus medialis*, which keeps your patella tracking properly in front of your knee.
Made for Everyone
Two thicknesses. Three bad-ass styles. Five sizes. No matter who you are, we’ve got KneeCaps that fit your body – and personality – perfectly.
5mm vs. 7mm
When it comes down to it, the difference between thickness is going to be based on feel. 7mm is typically used for heavy lifting where as 5mm is more common for use during conditioning.

*The vastus medialis muscle is one of four quadricep muscles. It is located on the inner part of the front of the thigh. The lowest part of the vastus medialis, called the vastus medialis oblique (VMO), achieves its maximum contraction during full extension. The VMO helps to stabilize the patella and allow it to track properly.
They’re great. I wish they came in an XML as the xl. Ate pretty hard to get over my knees
I had the original knee sleeves since the day they came out. I've used and abused the 5mm knee sleeves until they started fraying this year. So I had many years of use from body weight to heavy lifting exercises. Amazing stabilization and keep the knees warm. I ordered medium 5mm sleeves but received XL by accident. This acutally worked out well because it turned out a large 7mm is what I preferred. Customer care was great and I received my new order within 2 days of my new request. Would definitely recommend and be buying again once these wear out.
