I've been struggling with an arthritic knee for some time
I’ve been struggling with an arthritic knee for some time now. Usually leaves me be, but when a scouting activity or event comes up - like a hike, camp, etc. My knee will complain for days afterwards. On a whim, I bought this to wear only on my bad knee during summer camp. Dang, if it didn't work like a charm. Not only is the pressure helpful, the fact it was there served as a reminder not to take sharp turns, to slow down on climbs and descents, etc. Stays in place due to the adjustable strap and alli in all feels very nice. It's now a staple of my daypack and backpack.
