Here we have a performance product review on the Protective Leg Sleeves from McDavid.
Using leg sleeves and knee pads are essential to some ballers. Leg sleeves/pads offer protection and compression for those who are always looking to reduce swelling or protect sensitive knees. Also leg sleeves/pads allow the user to stay warm during down time on the court, things such as; timeouts, fouls, and halftimes are all these things can make a player cold and stiff. In the video below i review and compare the McDavid Protective Leg Sleeves and the adidas TechFit Knee Pads. Both products are great and offer beneficial features for any basketball player, but depending on what you are looking for, one product may be more beneficial than the other.
- Length: The McDavid Knee Sleeves cover a large area of your leg, this helps keep you warm and protects the users leg in more areas than a standard knee sleeve/pad would.
- Price: For only $35 you get a pair (2) of the McDavid Protective Leg Sleeves. Competitors price their sleeves/pads at around the $20 mark for only one sleeve/pad.
- Weight: One of the lightest knee pads i have used in a while. The Hex pad feels lighter than competitors and offers the same amount of protection as other top sleeves/pads.
- Fit: Extreme tightness in the lower thigh area causes discomfort and could be a distraction on court.
