Quality Comfort Price Value StyleFinally I have found a lightweight knee brace that offers a lot of support. The only "ding" against this product is it doesn't wash well in the machine. A hand wash and dry is a much better option. Still a great brace...

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThis knee brace is not only comfortable, it has support, and is not "rubber". Lightweight woven knit that 'breathes'. Awesome! My knee does not hurt when I wear it.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI suffered from weak and painful knees. This brace is just amazing. Its material is soft and yet it provides excellent support. This brace is going to enable me to do things I couldn't do before. Thank you Mueller for such a great brace! Highly recommended.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI recently bought one of these for my karate class and it works well. I am a large man 6'2" 355lb and it fits well. It is a little snug when I first put it on but as it warms up it fits better. The only problem I have is the spring rods on the outside of the leg digs into my calf. This I think will be less noticeable in time kind of like a new shoe hitting you in a diff different spot in the heal. But over all top notch brace.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI am impressed with knee brace. Very comfortable and my range of motion is great. Also, there is less pain when I take it off. I should have purchased a large instead of an extra large. Still effective.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleNice and very useful product. Best quality. It's easy playing volleyball now. I recommend it to everyone that need knee support.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleHave minor osteoarthritis in my left knee. It gets slightly swollen when using my elliptical machine. The Mueller brace seems to give a lot of support. Works much better than the $10 brace that I bought in the grocery store. No knee pains now, no joint swelling.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI've been having knee issues for about ten years now and I've tried several knee brace but none of them seem to help. The mueller hg80 is easily the best knee brace by far, I'm at the point now where I feel absolutely no pain in my knee.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleHave found this brace to be very good for my prosthetic knee. Inclined to slip down after a while but have not found one that does not. Prompt service from Amazon and quick delivery. A shame that other products seem to be off limits to Australia as would purchase more if not the case.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThis product is great for floor workouts and cardio, however I find that is slips a lot while I am running, using the elliptical, or any other exercise where you do a lot of knee-bending. Because of this, I often experience greater knee pain with it on than I would without it since it is slipping down over my knee cap. It is a good fit, but for some reason it doesn't stay in place during those exercises. In addition, it is quite bulky so it's presence is very much apparent under workout gear, work slacks, and jeans.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThis is comfortable to wear but it slips down very easily. Also, the steel springs do not offer much support nor protection to prevent injuring your knee joint.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleBought this brace to where when I referee soccer games. Wore it this past Saturday and didn't even realize I had it on! It is lightweight and provides great support.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI have been using two of these braces for the last two years. Prior to using these braces, I had resorted to using neoprene style braces from one of the big box sporting good stores. I always found the neoprene braces uncomfortable, smelly, and too damn big. I am a runner, cyclist and skier with a meniscus tear on each knee. I love this product. It is light, comfortable, easy to put on, and easy to remove. The fabric is very comfortable, and they are surprisingly supportive. I will buy new replacements soon.The price is great too! Make sure you get the correct size. MEASURE don't guess!

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleOnly down side is it slides down often when you use full range of motion. Standing or running, it stays in place.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleWill never buy another brace. This brace is used every day. I ordered a smaller size than measurements stated just for my comfort.
P. T. Waiteon 11/15/13
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleLower strap good, but the over-engineered upper straps are not secure enough and lack adjustment range. The material is comfortable and light, but I find it too stretchy to provide the support I prefer for tennis.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleHave previously used and found it easy to put on and take off. Light weight and easily cleaned. Provides flexibility while stabilizing my knee.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI have had knee problems all my life and have always had a hard time finding knee braces that actually fit. These are really nice. very comfortable and really supportive even when wearing them for long periods. as with all braces of this nature there is minimal slipping throughout the day but nothing too concerning. You will not be able to fully flex your leg (bring your heel to your butt) however it does support a wide range of motion comfortably. Overall I'm really glad I purchased these.
I'm 5'5" and 116 lbs to give you an idea of how they fit
Uses- long vigorous walks, some running short distances, and playing with a five year old.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThis is the second brace I have ordered. The first one I used until the elasticity was gone. My only suggestion would be to more obviously differentiate between the Hg80 Knee Brace and the Hg80 HINGED knee brace. I ordered the wrong brace (no hinges) and then had to return it for the HINGED version which is what my doctor asked me to purchase and wear. It is an excellent product. Comfortable, supportive and easy to put on. I wear mine every day, almost the entire day. THANK YOU!!
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThese are the best braces I've ever used and would never want to switch to another brand. I'm a martial artist and have been training for 17 years and over the years my knees have taken quite a pounding, especially since I love to go running. My knee caps sometimes feel like the slide in and out of place and its pretty painful but these braces help keep my knee caps in place. I usually only wear them when I go running and I'm back up to going 3 miles every other day and I've noticed that since wearing these to run with my knees have gotten better both with and without them. I definitely recommend these braces to anyone with knee problems. They fit true to size just be sure to measure your knee's circumference to be sure you order the right size otherwise it doesn't do any good.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI wear a knee brace when playing racquetball. I used to buy them at the discount or drug store until I found this one. It is great and durable. Worth every penny. I was so happy with it I bought 3 just to make sure I had them on hand.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThis is a great knee brace for anyone that is active in sports after having ACL and Meniscus surgery! My son loves it!
lou on 11/15/13
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleMy knee size was on the minimum diameter side of the knee size range and I can not adjust it to fit snugly. It tends to slide down my knee rather easily and I have to keep pulling it up. I had purchased a HG80 hinged knee brace earlier and it seemed to fit OK. It seems to do the job.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleAfter eleven knee surgeries I did it again! This time I tore my meniscus and got this brace for support until surgery. Great support and breaths very well. Sitting in the sun all Memorial Day weekend at my kid's soccer tournament with no sweat under the brace whatsoever. The only issue I have is that it does tend to slip down a little and needs to be pulled up every now and then. I wouldn't recommend it if you have major instability but for my purposes it is lightweight, comfortable, supportive and well priced. Definitely the best brace of all those I've ever used over the years. An excellent value.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThis is a very good quality light weight brace that provides good steel spring side support to the knee while keeping the knee cap in place and maintaining front and back flexibility. It is better than those custom knee braces which cost several hundred dollars and are so heavy - almost unwearable. Slip resistent inner lining is very nice and straps can be tightened to your personal comfort level. And the brace is washable.
Definitely worth a try before you go for those several hundred dollar custom braces. This brace can be used by people with chondromalacia patella, ligament and meniscus injuries and some with painful knee implants.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleRuns small so go up a size. It fits well under jeans/ pants & good knee support. No big brace bulge. Did not cause rash/ allergy reaction like neoprene products do.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleGood quality for the price. Brace is a little tight at the start, but loosens up and fits better after a couple of uses. Nice support.

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleNeedless to say, I have been through quite a few knee braces and this, by far, is the best. I have tried slip-ons, adjustable, custom, and everything in-between and nothing fits as perfectly as the Mueller Hg80 Knee Brace, Large, Black. It's soft and stretchy in all the right places and tight and supportive exactly where needed and the support for the patellar tendon is amazing. But, the best two things might seem minor... but it makes all the difference... it doesn't bunch up behind the knee significantly and the rubber on the inside along with the perfect fit keeps it from slipping significantly.
I've used it for three weeks... playing volleyball, basketball, kickball, and working out in the gym... excellent brace!

Quality Comfort Price Value StyleI had a lateral release more than 10 years ago along with a loose piece of cartilage. Anyone who has had knee surgery can tell you that surgery is not a fix all and needless to say I have been through a lot of braces since my injury. This is by far the absolute best brace I have ever used. Comfortable without the irritation caused by neoprene. Excellent support without the weight you usually see with a hinged brace. I honestly like this version better than Mueller's hinged model. I can wear (and often do if I'm out hiking) this brace all day comfortably and my knee will be noticeably less sore after than if I had no brace or another model on. I cannot recommend this brace enough, don't waste money on more expensive braces this one will be all you need.
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleIts amazing u can play like nutin is rong wit ur knee its a great knee brace it's all the support u need
Sgt Bon 11/15/13
Quality Comfort Price Value StyleThe brace works great and feels great i run three miles a day and havent had any problems with my meniscus tear theres no locking popping or pain....first time in ten years running with no pain!!!!!
J.K. on 11/15/13
Quality Comfort Price Value StylePerfect brace. I just had acl surgery and it gives me good support. If you are considering a brace, consult your physical therapist. If you need more support, you may need a hinged brace and the Mueller one is good too as i own that one as well. As some other reviewer said, the HG80 "tag" fell off while i was putting it on for the first time. I dont care about that. This is part neoprene and part mesh. Very comfortable. Fits good but I would consider it runs a little small.
