I kept wrecking my shins during deadlifts, and these are a life saver! Recommended to me by my massage therapist. I'm also starting box jumps and rope climbs so I'll be wearing these for those as well. Comfy and stylish - the kind of extra gear I don't mind wearing! Fun side note: a friend of mine showed up with the exact same pair the first time I wore mine even the design and all!
RockGuards are designed for rope climbs, deadlifts, cleans, snatches, box-jumps… really anything that punishes your shins. Tall socks can only go so far – our specially designed RockGuards are made from perforated 5mm neoprene with a mesh backing. Slide them on easily before your WOD and lift with confidence.
The 3rd generation RockGuards are made with durable 5mm neoprene on the shin-side – and a lightweight mesh on the back for easy on-off during your workout. The neoprene is also perforated for breathability and will not retain water during obstacle course racing.
Not Just the Gym
RockGuards are absolutely fantastic for a variety of collision sports – including mountain biking, obstacle course racing, and trail-running.
Bleeding Isn’t Cool
We love to hit it hard in the gym – but don’t forget what you’re around. Staph infections can plague gym-goers. Stop grinding your shins up and stay safe.

I hurt my foot doing 17.5 in the Crossfit Open so I havent had an opprotunity to actually use these yet, however just by looking at them and the quality of the product I have all the confidence that they will do exactly what I want them to do. Protect my shin the next time I miss a box jump.
Good compression (I would recommend a smaller size) and no more scraps during my OCR Races!
Very good product!!!to do Rope Climb and jump box wearing these is the vest
As someone who is notorious for coming home from an OCR looking as though the course one, these were a lifesaver. They're beautifully protective from anything you may encounter on the course, as well as Rope Climbs/Box Jumps/Aggressive Pulls in the gym. My first pair were a M (per sizing), and I chanced ordering a S for my second pair and found that I liked them better. The mesh in the back is great for non-constrictive protection, and huge breathability. Spot-On product, RockTape.
Jason Kalipa recommended these in a rope climb video I watched - and he was right. They do a great job of protecting my left ankle on the way up and both legs on the way down.
I really love my shin guard can't workout without it
Great product for crossfit and OCR.
