Bioskin Knee Skin
Having tried Neoprene knee supports in the past, I've always observed two major problems. The first problem was developing an uncomfortable itch behind the knee due to sweating, which happened with both designs I've used. Whilst you do get some perspiration build up with this, it is nowhere near as bad a Neoprene support and the itchy skin isnt as bad either.
Another problem in the two supports I used was that in this price range (Â£25-Â£40) they had no side stays to stop the support rolling down and bunching up behind the knee, which is very, very uncomfortable and results in you removing the support and not using it at all. It does roll down in use and you occasionally have to pull it back up a little but it is not an unbearable problem. maybe they could reduce the amount of fabric behing the knee by placing an elliptical cut out there to improve the comfort behind the knee?

Compresses the knee well but has no cut out on the rear so the fold gets uncomortable in use cycling i now use it after cycling to prevent further swelling

does what it's supposed to!
Bought two of these after my physio advised some support for my dodgy knees. Thought they were a little pricey, but soon decided it was worth it as I'm able to jog (almost) normally where previously I couldn't manage half a mile before having to stop. The printed logo on the front peels after a few wears, also some slight stretching but doesn't affect performance at all. A good product, and one I would recommend.

Knee brace ... Not quite...
Bought this to support knee when hiking after bike injury. Did not make any difference as even after trying different sizes, the brace kept on sliding down to the ankle... no need to comment further as this is a knee brace, not an ankle brace. They are much better product out there. Also cheaper...

This product was recommended to me by a physic after I had done some minor damage to my knee while skiing a few years ago. I now use one on each knee every time I ski and find them highly satisfactory.
