Athletic Knee Support for Running, Basketball, Crossfit, and More
Every day, our knees endure a high level of stress, especially athletes’ knees. This can take a toll on the soft tissues, bone, etc. that make up our knee joints, making them susceptible to many types of injuries.
With that said, many people who subject their knees to high levels of stress, such as CrossFit competitors or avid runners, choose to wear a knee brace while exercising to help prevent or heal from a knee injury.
This versatile, non-slip knee wrap stabilizes and provides maximum support to the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in your knee. It protects against further damage and injury while still being thin and lightweight enough to be worn under your clothes, so you can maintain your active lifestyle without worry.
These qualities make this knee wrap great for treating many conditions that cause knee pain, including:
Weak or Arthritic Knees

Good support but could use better fit
The support it provides is good but it would be nice if at the sides of the knee joint there were elastic gussets to allow bending without the gap & sag.
Easy to use and keeps knee secured.
It strangely works
This very flexible brace works for me. Since I have needed knee replacement surgery for two years now but have not gotten it done due to other health issues that needed taking care of first this brace has given me time leeway. One brace does not solve all the problems when someone gets to point where I am at. Braces tried and used include Mueller Self Adjusting Knee Stabilizer, Incrediwear Knee Sleeve, Elastic Slip-on Cotton Fabric Knee Pain Support Sleeve, and the Non-Slip Knee Wrap for Athletic Support and Arthritis Pain. At different times they all serve a purpose. This particular one works the best for long day, getting stuff done around the house. Probably because it is so flexible. Yes, it needs to be readjusted several times during the day. But even when it gets scrunched up it still provides good support. And it's flexible...that's why it works.
These fit AND work!
My wife has needed a knee replacement for a few years but her Dr says she is too young and wants to wait a few more years before doing the replacement. She has tried at least 5 - 6 different types / brands and these have been the best so far. They stay in place and they support her while walking better than any of the others. So far, we have bought 3 of these and the only reason is the Velcro starts to not hold after 6-8 months of everyday use. Because the cost is reasonable, it's a no brainer to have an extra one around. Plus we write them off for medical use on our taxes.
Knee Wrap a good fit
Good fit, sits nicely, just enough hold to be comfortable when walking
