this product is not water resistant and is not sweat proof. I'm a marathon runner and this product at the end of long run is coming off. Very disappointed again!
RockTape is the world’s best kinesiology tape. It can be used to treat sports and non-sports injuries, including shin splints, plantar fasciitis, runner’s knee and back pain.
RockTape H20 is the world’s best kinesiology tape made even stickier to meet the demands of top athletes and austere environments.
How does it work?
RockTape microscopically lifts the skin away from the muscle and fascia below, creating a decompressive effect. Stretchier, stickier and stronger than the competition, RockTape is preferred by athletes and medical professionals throughout the world.

I had difficulty with other tapes sticking for periods longer than a couple days. I purchased this tape, and it sticks until I have to take it off myself. I would definitely purchase another roll of this tape!
Rocktape is the way to go .
Tape the balls of my feet and with skin prep, apply the tape and the tape will last about 5-6 days. This prevents callouses, hotspots and blisters from forming.
I have tried several brands of KT and Rock Tape H2O is by far the best I have used. I have yet to have an end curl up or any loss of adhesion. Great product!
I love Rocktape and have been using normal Rocktape for several months. With the normal Rocktape, I can shower, cycle and it does not curl on the edges or come off my skin during exercise or while bathing. Thought I'd try the H2O but noticed it's a little stretchier which I initially thought was good but then because it's stretchier it's less stiff which means it will roll up/curl on the edges easier. It's just physics. The other thing I didn't like was it will relieve your body of hair and since I am using it on my knee I want to leave the hair their. So, I love Rocktape but prefer the original Rocktape rather than the H2O version. I still gave it 5 stars because stretchier and stickier might be good for some people.
I've tried other tapes in the past while running ocr. I won't name the brands. But the h20 extra sticky rocktape is spot on. The ONLY one I'll use from now on.
The tape was effective for anterior tib pain with running reduced the pain to make so I able to run almost pain free. The tape did stay on for the first 3 days with swimming but did start to peel off after 3 days.
I use RockTape for everything....protection, pain management, faster healing. Crossfit, running, Obstacle Courses, training, doesn't matter the activity, its almost always on my body. I truly believe I perform better because of RockTape.
I have extreme pain in both my knees do to patella tendinitis. I can't find anything else that relieves the pain. Other tapes don't stick very well and I swim and do Crossfit. I also have a demanding job as Railroad conductor. Rocktape has mad my life 98% better. It's the best tape out there.
We have used ROCK tape at our facility for years now. It is the best product of its kind. I never have a problem with it sticking and it lasts for days! ROCK Tape is the brand we endorse to all of our athletes.
Love the strength and lasting power, better than any tape I've tried before.
I have used this tape now for 4 years, and has helped me in the healing of my it bands, hamstring injury, groin pull, etc. I also use as preventative for major sporting competitions .
I ride in the PBR, my body takes a beating, behind the chutes the adrenaline flows and we get hot and sweaty, most tapes just can't stick under these pressures. Rock Tape H20 excepted the challenge and produced great results by lasting more than one event. Which allows me to stay taped to aid in my rotator cuff healing.
Massive Thanks to Rocktape for helping us out at Ironman Arizona last week... no other tape makes it through a full Ironman swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles and a full marathon run!
Lasts for days and great for relieving pain in my knees.
Could not get KT Tape to stick to legs. Love the Rock Tape. Had zero problems out of it.
Amazing tape for athletes and blue collared workers alike. I use it on my lower back, ankles, calf muscles, plantar fasciitis. As long as it's used as directed and give it time to settle it'll last for days. Used with rock sauce and it's a combination no other company can match. I'm hooked for life.
This stuff is excellent. Does exactly what it will say
I have used most of the kinesio tape brands available. None of them actually stick once you start exercising. Except for Rocktape. I just finished a 5K mud run yesterday. Climbed over obstacles, was deep in mud pits and ran the course in 90 degree weather, the Rocktape stayed on the entire time. It is second to none!
It comes with some basic instructions, but there are even more online. It's probably user error, but it sticks to itself often. Overall works great, I'm just clumsy.
I have to be honest, I was a KT Tape user, but kept getting frustrated with it peeling off during my workout or directly after. I box 2-3 times/week and desired a tape that would last 2-3 workouts/week. Decided to try Rock Tape and chose the H2O for the extra adhesive and water resistance. Its great!! I'm on day 2 now and it hasn't rolled, frayed, or peeled up yet, even after showering. AND the support feels just as strong as immediately after application. I hope it "sticks" it out through the week. But thus far I love it! Please make more patterns and colors in the H2O version! Please Please Please!
I have a history of lower back pain due to a desk job compressing my spine. I have been applying the H2O tape to my back once a week before getting in the gym and it has helped like nothing before! In a month's time, I would say I've seen a 85%-90% recovery rate with no pain at all! Will definitely be a life-long customer! Thanks!
Only one word needed to describe this product, AMAZING! By far the best on the market!
Very good product. I will definitely keep using this product. Highly recommend this product.
I am using your H2O tape to secure my insulin pump insertions (diabetes). In the future, I will also use the tape to keep my CGMS (continuous glucose monitor sensor transmitter) from coming off (it is about a $400+ item). I recently started using your product and it has worked very well. As an athlete/adventurer with diabetes I need a tape that works. Most products I have used in the past have performed poorly. Thanks, Dave Nevins
We went through rolls and rolls of the tape at Crossfit regionals and it stayed on through the toughest WOD's. The athletes loved it and it helped in every aspect of their performance and recovery.
Working at 90 degrees and 90% humidity, Some of the Athletes brought there own tape which lasted minutes, having some rolls of H20 Rocktape saved the day and the shoulders and the elbows and the hands and knees. This tape is essential for my Chiro/Med kit. Thank you Dr. Ira.
