I recently had a "tweak" in my left knee (one that has seen two minor surgeries in my life) and needed a thick, supportive knee sleeve. Already a fan of Bear Grips' wrist/palm guards, I gave them a whirl. I immediately felt the support and have experienced little to no pain in my knee, even on days when CFNR, my CrossFit box, has some squat work. They wash well (which is frequent due to sweat and, quite frankly, the smell..) and are a vital part of my CrossFit "outfit". Also, the delivery was extremely fast and their delivery notification system Bear Grips utilizes was spot on and I knew when my package was coming! (Recommendation to the team, include your brand stickers in the packages since we will put them in our cars and laptop covers..free advertising and instant conversation starters!)
These sleeves are great. I’ve found them to be exactly what I needed.
If you need extra support for your knees, this works great. The thin sleeves can only do so much. The tradeoff is you will get hotter in the thicker material, but it does give excellent support and is very comfortable. Thumbs up! I did receive this item at a discount in order for me to test it and give my honest and unbiased feedback.
This is a great knee brace for doing any lifting that requires bending your knee. It is way more secure than I thought it was going to be. I usually use a knee brace that has adjustable straps, since I've experienced a lot of slippage with knee sleeves. This however is an exception. I did size down one to ensure a tight fit. It is made of good material and is very sturdy. Most products from bear grips has great quality. They obviously put a lot into the products they sell to their consumers. I received this at a discount in exchange for an honest review.
This is my third bear grips product and I love them all! I got this item to keep in my gym bag so I can ensure that I have the necessary support on those occasions that I don not workout at home. I have been dealing with pain on my left knee for a long time and so I am always looking for better/more supportive ways to continue my weight workouts without the possible strain of my knee. I tried the bear grips wrist wraps and really like them so I thought I would give the knee brace a try. I am so glad I did, this is by far the best compression knee sleeve I have tried so far! I have tried other knee braces in the past and like them a lot but this blows them all away. It has the necessary support without the brace getting in the way of my range of motion or ever being uncomfortable. In addition this has great padding to give my knee the support it needs if my workout requires me to put weight on it. This sleeve keeps my knee warm and the blood flowing for proper movement and less pain. This sleeve is very well made for durability and from now on, this is all I will be using... I just wish they had them in red. I ordered the small and was perfect on me (5'2 and 130 lbs). I received this item at a discount in exchange for my honest review of my experience with this product. I was not required for it to be positive but I honestly love this product
