Have had these for a number of months w/use. I bought both Bracoos knees braces – the one with and with out stabilizer support. I will post my opinion on both review sites since comparisons are important.The compression knee support is a neoprene type fabric w/a soft, padded ring that circles the patella. I am not sure it matters if it’s silicone or some other padding. The brace with stabilizers is the same fabric. The stabilizers are a metals strip made up of tiny ‘o’ ringlets combined for flexibility and CAN be removed. *note: I removed the stabilizers to help with flexibility – found the brace with stabilizers to be too restrictive with them in (for my knee condition and use)For the smaller compression only, the width (up on thigh and down on shin) is shorter.The knee brace that includes stabilizers is wider both on thigh and shin.Both appear to have the same circumferencePlease note that I wear these braces OVER my walking tights. There are amazing products for over the skin but I walk and run with tights, and we have cold winters in midwest.PROS:-Both aid in supporting the knee cap and knee when walking or running.-The velcro holds the brace in place pretty well – see cons for more comments on slippage – however, w/ adjustment, it’s been fine and totally worth having the brace on-Easy to use (PS the single strap should be pointed towards inside knee / medially when wrapping)CONS:-The velcro holds but I do find that the brace slips down a bit when walking and needs to be re-adjusted during walk / running (wrapping velcro strap tighter or pulling up)Both knee braces make you SWEAT – period! I have used them both in v cold temps (15-25° temps) – you don’t notice when you are using them but when u take them off, definitely sweaty / wet. Not and issue for me.-As said above, stabilizers in one product were very restrictive for me w/my knee condition , so I removed, but the wide straps (both on upper and lower), especially on lower were still restrictive to walking and jumping (home workouts)-I felt the brace w stabilizers was still a little restrictive even w stabilizers removed – see comment below for company!!! I read reviews on velcro not holding after time. Just and FYI and not criticism: you must take care of velcro. After use, velcro the straps back onto the brace. NEVER wash w/ loose velcro as lint will adhere and longevity will be greatly reduced. I would even wash in a bag with no other laundry (front loader on hand wash) or just hand wash. Again, ALL barbed side veclcro should be fastened!For Company:I find the knee brace w/’stays’ to be too wide and inhibits walks, jumping, bending, etc.The smaller knee brace w/ no additional support is not as wide, but I feel if you combined both features by adding the width/height on the top / thigh portion while keeping the bottom, shin portion the same, it might aid in anti-slippage, giving more freedom in movement and bending, but still keeping the brace from slipping down.-Please label your products better so that your consumer, ie the people who buy your product, can differentiate between products-
I have been using knee braces for years due to arthritis and a lifetime of hiking, biking, walking and other sports. These braces are a perfect fit on my very small frame, and I immediately noticed a difference on my first day. The braces provide excellent support, are light and not bulky like other braces, and there is no need to constantly adjust the straps as I have had to do with other brands. I purchased them due to the great reviews here as I was considering other options (knee compression sleeves) and I have not been disappointed. The price for two braces is very reasonable and I will definitely purchase these again in the future. I highly recommend this excellent product and look forward to continuing a very active lifestyle without worrying about knees!
Arthritis pain next to my knee cap. Adjustable is great but reviewing videos on youtube, none tell you where to place the front “hole” so more explicit instructions with the knee brace would be helpful. When I did figure it out, the “test” was to insert two fingers into the fabric to make sure it’s not too tight or loose but after tightening as best I could, two fingers still fit. Are my legs skinnier than the max? Who knows. One video says to set up while standing. The fit is decent but it really didn’t decrease the pain. Quality is good though.
I injured my knee weightlifting and needed something to help with support and still allow full range of motion. I ordered a couple different braces, but this is the only one that I kept. It does exactly what it’s supposed to do and I actually plan to order another one to keep on hand.

I used for my buckling knee and it helped a lot while I step out . Slides a little from its place

Kept coming loose. Kept sliping off
Siento mucho soporte pq tiene una tira que va por l parte de atrás aparte de las otras dos que cubren mi rodilla por el frente. El tamaño en perfecto pq no me impide hacer un poco de actividad física.
