The same great sleeves, but with a whole new look! Introduced at the 2018 IPF Classic Worlds (run by StrongArm owner Mike Armstrong) the new look sleeves were very well received. While we have some of both designs in stock, select which ones you would like from the size list.
Lets face it, if you just want to keep your knees a bit warm, you can get a pair of plain Rehband sleeves.
But.... if you want to get the best help that you can for your squat while staying within the "Unequipped" definition, you need a pair of the NEW Yellow Jackets.
Other brands may be more elastic, and FEEL tight, but all that elastic is stretching while you squat. The whole point of a sleeve is to STAY tight. Yellow Jackets are stiffer than any other sleeve on the market, giving you that CONSISTENT tightness throughout the lift. Its not just a 10 inch rubber band around your knee.
StrongArm Owner Mike Armstrong in an IPF referee, and spoke to a number of lifters at the 2016 IPF Raw Worlds in Texas. Many that were wearing the new new Yellow Jackets reporting having used SBD sleeves previously, but preferred the Yellow Jackets, finding that they had greater stiffness without feel so tight the lower legs went numb. These were world champion level lifters, and they preferred the Titan product.

like the title says, these things look way cool, however, i have small joints, there's a 4" difference in my lower thigh where the knee sleeves sit at the highest point and my knee joint, and my upper calf is 2" bigger than my knee. the straight cut design of this doesn't work for me. I had the same issue as Brad O (his review is somewhere around here) the sizing chart didn't work for me either and i had to send them back get a different size which was no hassle, mike is awesome about that stuff. XL swapped out for L.
Build quality was perfect, they look cool as fuck, they are very aggressive as knee sleeves go. if you don't have weird knee proportions then these will probably work excellent for you.
Quality product. Have used Rehbands and more recently SBD's my whole lifting "career" and would rate these as superior in terms of comfort, performance and even their aesthetics. Have enjoyed squatting new bests as well as rep records since my purchase. Would recommend anyone on the fence between these and SBD's to give this video a view before making your decision. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2doIwc8HDE
Titan Yellow Jacket Knee Sleeves
I was disappointed when I used the sleeves for my first block of training. Transitioning from the SBD sleeve, I did not realize the lack of taper in the sleeve would be more noticeable in the quad than the calf. I assumed it would just be loose on the calf, however it was too tight in the quad, too loose in the calf, which caused the sleeve to bunch in the back of the knee. Larger quads make these tougher to fit.
Great! Fits perfect !
