This is my second pair of RedLine sleeves. I had the original grey model for over a year, until I wore them out! This new design is just as good...snug, warm and supportive. I received them shortly after an MCL sprain, and I never once worried about my knee, as long as I controlled my movement and had these sleeves on. A must have for the gear bag...AND I had superior customer service when my original order was out of stock and the computer system made an error. Quick, personal attention led to a revised order and fast delivery. Thanks!!!
