Does the job, could be better
on 13 January 2010
This is the second patella strap I've tried since I've come back to playing football after suffering a knee injury. The first was borrowed from a friend and was better designed. The other strap I tried fastened like a belt, where you put one side through another and pull tight on one end before fastening the velcro. This made it easier to fasten the strap tightly and keep it in place.
A flaw in this one is that it doesn't fasten like this, it has velcro on one end and it overlaps the other as it fastens. Holding the non-velcro side in place and dealing with the overlap while your hands are in the way make it difficult to fit tight, and these things need to fit tight.
It does do the job once it's in place but there are easier to use, more comfortable alternatives out there for the same price.
