I have a partially torn ACL and have been using ACE neoprene knee braces with spring inserts for lateral supports. While these braces served me well, they were showing their ages, and ACE stopped making the same model. As far as I am concerned, newer / one-size-fits-all models from ACE and other vendors are not an improvement since they really do not fit right and do not offer the same level of compression as fitted / sized ones. There are other fitted knee braces with lateral supports but those are not made with neoprene material and do not offer the same level of compression and stability. After getting very disappointed with one of these thinner / non-neoprene knee brace, I continued my quest to find a perfect replacement of my trusty old ACE knee brace. When I found this item on Overstock.com, I was little bit hesitant because of a very large inconsistency between its pictures and descriptions. While the picture accurately showed springs on the side, description did not mention any lateral support. Since I always had good experiences with Overstock.com and its return policy, I decided to take a chance.
The product was delivered within 4 days of the order, and I could not be happier with this knee brace. It is little thicker than I would like and cannot be worn inside-out (I liked to flip my old ACE brace inside out when I start to sweat so that I don't have to feel like I have a small jungle down on my knee). However, the fit was very good and firm, and the lateral support was also excellent. I have not taken it to hiking or other more demanding activities, but, with limited time I spent wearing it around short walks, I am very happy with my purchase.
Ever since I purchased this knee brace, I also found out that it is no longer listed on the *** web site, so, I think that means this one is also being discontinued. I have gone ahead and ordered a second one so that I can have a spare for next few years.
How did the image on site compare with the actual product? The image was very helpful, especially since the descriptions did not mention the lateral support while the picture showed side springs
How accurate was the on site description of the product? All the descriptions were accurate. However, the description missed the point that this knee brace also has 2 springs on each side, providing lateral supports.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality material and stitching
It's not Seamless behind the knee for improved comfort. There is a seam but not anymore irritating/chaffing than other seamless I have used. They do have good support, The picture really doesn't show the side supports. You cant beat the price! Thanks "O" once again.

Where are the measurements for each size? For example, if my leg is 20" above the knee, what size do I purchase. Thanks.reneethewriter on Sep 11, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
These run tight but the picture shows good dimension. I have soccer legs and the medium didn't fit. I gave it to my mom who has thin legs.yanna745 on Jan 25, 2013
