This knee support is a lot more comfortable than the many others I have tried, although not as snug as I'd like. I may try the smaller size to compare.

Perfect product for running, especially trail running.…Best thing, the anti-slip strip at both ends prevent slipping during running, so you don’t have to stop every 5 minutes to adjust it. I had a previous injury to the knee, and since I started using this sleeve, I haven’t had any pain after my everyday run.

Runs Larger than Most

This knee support is a lot more comfortable than the many others I have tried, although not as snug as I'd like. I may try the smaller size to compare.

Pain free running

I use it every time I run now.…With good stretching, foam rolling and these sleeves I have been able to run nearly pain free.

Comfort and functionality.

This was a total game changer for my running. I no longer ache when running more than a 5k.…

Does the bend (back) of your knee hurt after prolong squating as in gardening?

No, I did a lot of stretching & bending in between running on treadmill, never uncomfortable. I used size small & it did not slide off.

Has anyone used these for mountain biking?

I have used them to go biking as well as running and Base Ball ... cannot complain to much .. they do tend to ride down a bit after use just have to adjust them

Lessens Pain

My knee was making it hard to run. But since I've used the brace, the pain has lessened and I can run again.

Runs to long

I measured my knee..I truly need support..but when I put it on to wear ...I had to roll it down once to feel comfortable ... nice support

Worked well for me on my 10k run the other ...

Worked well for me on my 10k run the other day.…

Has anyone done rowing wearing this brace?

I haven't done rowing wearing the brace but I have worn it to exercise in (both kickboxing and running) and it stayed in place and provided support. I never have to pull it up or readjust it and I pretty much wear it from the time I wake up until I go to sleep.

I've only worn size large braces my entire adult life, but my thigh ony measures 18 inches. That means a medium by your sizing. Is that correct?

My thighs are slightly larger than yours and I wear small and love them. No more patella tendon issues when I run on the treadmill or when I play basketball. Again though.... it's tight, but not so tight that it's cutting off your circulation. If you had 19"-20" thighs I would recommend MED or if you don't want it tight.

I'm surprised and delighted that this brace stayed on my entire run

I'm surprised and delighted that this brace stayed on my entire run, and never slipped down. It makes me feel a bit more protected when I'm running without being too restricting.

Five Stars

The quality of this knee support product is good, and it really helps me since I really like running.

I am a 12 year old dancer and have frequent knee pain, would I want to get these to manage with my pain

To be honest, I can't be sure if that will help you since I use as support for daily running. It does help to lessen the stress you would put onto your knee.

Has anyone worn these on one or both knees for cycling? If so, what was your experience?

Never have since I don't cycle. I just wear them for support for walking since I cannot run at my age due to arthritis in both knees.

Knee is very easy to use, good elasticity, and now I can not leave it every day running it

I run every day, so I need to often take knee pads to protect my knee, this knee brace really gave me too much surprise, good material, breathable,very comfortable and provides excellent support,I love this compression sleeve.

Runner’s knee best friend!

After 5 months, inner silicone grips are peeling off, works fine otherwise

…I also purchased this one and it has held up better (silicone inside is still intact completely) and it is longer, which I like.…

It provides so much support for my knees while running....

AWESOME!!!

great product. i will definitely order from here again. l love them. for lifting,running and playing racquetball they work flawlessly.

Great knee brace

I used to run more a few years ago and stopped due to ongoing issues with my knee.…These worked so well for crossfit that I decided to start running again and see if one of these braces would be good for that. A few months back into running and they have worked so well so far.…

my knee is 15 should I buy medium or large

I ordered a size smaller than my measurements suggested and I'm glad I did. For lifting, I prefer a tighter fit, so that works best for me. If you are using them for heavier lifts, I recommend a tighter fit. Perhaps if you are doing longer WOD's or running in them, a looser fit may be better. Hope that helps.

Would these help a girl's fast pitch softball catcher?

I would say to make sure to get the size under recommended if possible. If you move around a bunch, like running, they'll tend to bunch up and you have to keep messing with them. I pretty much just use them to squat and do weighted lunges and I have to adjust them here and there but I didn't get them tight because I have big calves and it's hard to get tighter sleeves over them. They've been nice for keeping my knees warm, all those ligaments and what not and also to keep my kneecap from getting out of the groove.

Super good for running

Very comfortable and very good running

Comfortable, increases confidence on runs

Only running about 40-50 miles a month but this has helped with instability and mild knee pain. …Comfortable, increases confidence on runs, breathable, doesn’t chaff, seems to hold up well in wash.

Good for running

Worth it good

I want it for running. How does it compare to braces with side stabilizers?

You have more flexibility with this brace. I don't have any with side stabilizers for running. This takes care of the pain I have from a torn meniscus. Working for an 8 hour I have no disability at all.

Thanks for all the responses to my concern about it, or others, slipping down. I belive it is a problem in running but not weight lifting?

It's all about the size fit, please contact our customer service and we will help you to get the best fit.

Great for running.

Love the fit, stays in place.

Great for running!

I bought one for each knee just to prevent the impact of running on hilly terrain from causing damage to my knees. They fit perfectly and I've noticed a big difference in how my knees feel after a run.…

Hello, I'm 5'6 243lbs. what size should I get? xl? Thanks for any info.

Does this stretch out over time?

Yes it does. It actually comes off a tiny bit after each time I use it for soccer or running. Just have to pull it up.

the knee support i need

i run daily and this gives me the support i need and is the best compression sleeve i've used as far as staying in place goes

BEST knee brace for runners!

…I love that this knee brace isn't too tight for me (size small -I hover around 118lbs at 5'2 for reference) and doesn't make my skin itchy after a run the way most braces do. It doesn't fall off during my run/hike and I'm able to comfortably wear it throughout the day even post workout. Give this brace a run because your knee will thank you.

When I measure my leg, twice it is 161/4 to 161/2 inches, should I get a medium or a large?

They run true to size. Follow what they suggest for measurements.

Good compression and design, breathable layer

It’s painful and uncomfortable to deal with a knee that has been twisted, broken or otherwise compromised. Every step can be tortuous. To lessen pain and increase comfort, a knee brace is in order, including these solid options.

Whether for daily wear, to prevent injuries, or to aid in the recovery of a meniscus tear, knee braces are meant to stabilize the knee and prevent damage to the meniscus.
The knees are critical joints, and they're also one of the easiest joints to injure. Because they get constant usage, knee injuries are incredibly hard to recover from, particularly when trying to maintain an active lifestyle. Hinged knee braces are key to allowing the knees to heal, protecting them while still providing support for high-intensity physical activity. Whether recovering from a serious injury, like a torn meniscus or ACL, or if you're just experiencing some mild knee pain, a knee brace is a great way to ensure you can keep up regular activity and still support the knee joint, preventing further injury and not interfering with the healing process. Hinged knee braces are available with different designs and materials. Below are some of the best hinged knee braces on the market.
You don’t have time for knee pain. But if you’re active, your hard work is inevitably going to catch up with you in the form of an injury. When your knee is sore, a knee brace can be just what the doctor ordered to give you support so you can get back out there again.
