Stretches and becomes useless
December 2, 2012
Loved this knee stabilizer when I first got it. Nice ergonomic design and adjustments. Breathable behind knee and doesn't bunch as much as competing products. Too bad it doesn't hold up. After several days of use the material starts to bunch up around the knee and stretches to the point where it no longer stays in place and won't supply enough support. Tightening the strap won't help much since the strap is level with the support and won't seat level when the thigh is thicker than the knee. Competing brands don't seem to have these issues.

I am undecided whether to get the 870 or the 875. I was going to get the 870, but the review says the straps stretch and don't hold up. What is your response to this 870 user feedback? How much are the straps expected to stretch over the years with this product?
By Jeremiah at on July 5, 2013

The 875 does indeed provide additional support and a more secure fit. But the 870 is a great option for many users. It just depends on how much support you really need, the rigorousness of the activity and the planned frequency of use. The more often and more aggressively you play, the more I'd be inclined to recommend the 875. In terms of the straps holding up or not, we haven't had any substantive complaints. Proper fit and sizing are the keys to ensuring that the support works properly.

I'm not sure how to select the correct size. Is there a chart or guidance I can follow?
By Customer Service on September 16, 2013

The best way to ensure proper fit is to measure your knee circumference 2 inches below the center of your knee cap.
