    Customer Reviews
    ACE™ Brand Hinged Knee Brace is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 68.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best brace ever I bought this brace for my 22 year old son who plays multiple sports-baseball, basketball, floor hockey are cheerleading. He wears this everyday! He stated that this brace gives him the support he needs without resticting his movements. Fits great and is not tight. Best brace ever! The only drawback is that it becomes frayed around kneecap.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Needs to Be Bigger I bought this brace last night and it is way too small for my leg. I'm 6'2" 240 and there is no way this was fitting. One size does not fit all and the lack of sizing on the package is deceptive. Please put this out in variable sizes as I need it but can't wear one that is too small!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Small for "1 size" I bought this and it does not fit. FYI top of brace, leg has to be 16" or under. The area across knee is 13 inches. Not "one size". These measurments are the largest. Probably need to be 1/2" to 1 inch smaller when you measure around yr knee. This brace is very WELL MADE. So Im disappointed the sizing did not work. I have to return it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best ever Knee Brace I have been having trouble with my knee, it is pretty much just bone on bone so I purchased this brace and it really helps me walk. I have tried other braces but these have the best support. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Knee Brace Magic I have bought several of these for myself and others. They do actually help. I strongly recommend this for knee pain and extra support. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really Helped Ease the Pain Before My Knee Surgery I purchased the ACE Brand Hinged Knee Brace a while back, prior to being diagnosed with a torn meniscus. I ultimately had to have surgery, but until that time, the ACE brace really helped stabilize my knee and minimized my pain. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from This is NOT one Size fits all No size indication on the box and it won't go around my leg all the way. I have average size legs for an adult male. Looking at the box and pictures on this website, the models are petite women. Unless you are very small framed, don't waste your time and money on this. I measured the top of the brace, (largest part), and there is only 18" of material. So taking into account that the Velcro needs to overlap in order to hold, I would say that if your leg measured above your knee is 16" or less, this would work for you. That is way too small for "one size fits all". Very disappointing.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Too small! One size does NOT fit all. I cannot even get the ends of the velcro straps to meet, let alone fasten. There are many reviews citing this same problem- I wish I had see them BEFORE I bought it. Male,6’/240 [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
