I suffer from pain on the medial part of my knee. I had a cyst removed from there a few months back but it returned. However, with this knee support, I'm able to run pain-free. The only complaint is the patellar tendon strap sometimes bothers me a little bit. After running, I just rinse it out and let it dry and it's good to go. I'm buying a second one as a backup.
Back to running again
I am in my early sixties running 3+ miles three to four times weekly. During my runs I was experiencing sporadic but acute pain (popping) in my right knee. I initially attributed the pain to restarting my running after a very long absence due a bout with Plantar Fasciitis.
After trying the knee support now for a couple of weeks I can report that I have had NO ISSUES during or after my runs.
This knee support was inexpensive (compared to others) and has been the solution to my problem. Easy to use and clean.
Best purchase ever!
I developed a baker's cyst following the conclusion of a half marathon on January 10. Though I worked very hard to rehab my knee - ice, elevation, compression, massage, foam rolling - recovery was slow AND I still had races to train for and miles to get in. Purchasing the Pro-Tec knee brace saved my training plan. It's comfortable during my runs and small enough that I can wear it, unnoticed to others, under my clothes. I'm a month post-injury and nearly pain free. I'll continue to wear this brace, however, for the added support and confidence it gives me.
Saved my knees so far but....
So I'm a guy with knee pains after jogging or sprinting. I am a beginner runner and I've been putting in 9-12 miles a week. I've been using this knee support for about 3 weeks now and I haven't had knee pains in a while. The only annoyance I get is that the top slides down every so often but the rubber shock absorbing piece stays where it should be. Other than that, it works. Just slip it on, and where some good running shoes.

Ugh! Slips and falls down
I got this to stabilize my kneecap while running. Brace slips down and then my knee hurts again. I have a 14" knee and got the small. It fits properly, but I suppose it is not appropriate for runners knee. Ironic that it is sold at a running store. I'm returning it and getting a stronger one that is adjustable top and bottom.
Perfect Fit / Perfect Performance
I am a petite woman and finally found a small knee brace that is a perfect fit for me. I absolutely love this knee brace and so far I have run 11 miles without any knee pain. I highly recommend this product for anyone with knee pain.
Good product, but new model isn't as good as older sewn one.
This model is not as form fitting beneath the knee as the previous model. This model has a glued on bar, but the bar beneath the knee was sewn into the older model and fits closely. As far as I can tell it still works just fine, but is not as reversible. I buy a new pair of these every one to two years because they breakdown at the top of the hole above the knee, but really rely on them to keep my patella from coming out of its track.
Highly recommend this brace!
I bought this because after my long runs I started to develop knee pain to the point where I had to stop during my run bc the pain would hard to run through. I ordered this and it worked! Wore it for a week and my knee pain is gone.
CM the runner
Great for short distance running 3-8 miles. Last about 2 to 3 months before you feel that they are stretching out. They do offer great support. CEP long sleeve is excellent for longer distance running!

Minimized knee pain
I was having knee pain running and cycling. The pain starting decreasing after I started using this in conjunction with stretching better.
puts patella in right place with support
I have more robust knee supports but I prefer the short sleeve. It gives me support in a lighter less constrictive way.
Comfortable and supportive
These knee sleeves really help to alieve the minor knee pains I was getting on my longer (20-30 mile) runs.
Better than most
Bought after knee surgery to help with rehab. Good for work out but not all day use.
Running all the time
Great knee brace
Love this brace, it allows me to continue working out while my knee is healing.
Helped with runner's knee.
I have runner's knee, but don't have any pain when wearing this brace. Hoping it will help me recover instead of having to take more time off.
I've got two of these and have had really good luck. I've got chronic knee pain and these work great for running or for recovery.
Had a bakers cist and this helps keep it from coming back
