by fromHelped out my knee pain during runs I was slightly doubtful about this thing, but my knee pain was pretty bad when I tried to run. I even took a year off from running and did all the stretches that my doctor (and various webpages) told me to do. I decided to give this wrap a shot. The instructions are simple - place the padded part on the outside of the knee where the IT band (or pain) is, just about 3 inches from the top of the knee, and wrap to where it is tight but not painful. I ran for 30 minutes on a treadmill with absolutely no knee pain during or after my run! Before this thing I would be hobbling up and down stairs. I am kind of wary about using it for sports where there are side-to-side movements, like soccer, basketball, etc, because there is not that much support, but for running I think this is a solid product if you have been afflicted with IT band syndrome. Just be sure to do your IT band stretches too!

by fromProvides IT Band support to reduce pain When I experience IT Band pain, this support wrap provides good relief so that I can continue to run. The only con is that on long runs in hot weather (sweat) the strap may slip. However, it's easy to adjust.

by fromGreat product, very effective! I have been suffering knee pains for many years. I tried many braces, many shoes, but still couldn't completely get rid of the pain. I bought this product for a training of 14 mile trail run. I never got any pain in my knees! One of the catch is that, for long distance runs, like 14 miles, I start to feel the restriction of blood flow for the last 3 miles. Other than that, I highly recommend it!

by fromGreat product After suffering with IT band problems in both knees for almost three years, this wrap has saved my ultimate, cycling and backpacking careers! I wasn't sure if it was working at first, but after I figured out the right place to put it and how tight to wrap it (really tight) it has worked perfectly. No more pain! I can run around on the ultimate field for hours at full speed where I was a gimp after 15 minutes before. I've tried everything else and continue to use the foam roller and to stretch, but this wrap is a must have if you suffer from chronic IT band pain.

by fromNo pain for 70+ miles of backpacking After dealing with IT band pain when backpacking for the last couple of years, I bought a pair of these straps for a trip to Philmont with my son's Boy Scout troop, and they are worth their weight in gold. Previously, I would be in pain after a day of backpacking in the Ozarks and hobbling by the end of the weekend. Even short runs without a pack had become painful. Stretches and exercises didn't help. I bought a pair of these straps a couple of months before Philmont to try while running and was pleased with the results. When it came time for Philmont, I had zero knee pain for the entire 10 day trip going up and down mountains and valleys for 70+ miles. I couldn't be happier. As others have said, they can either slip when sweaty or constrict if too tight requring occassional adjustment throughout the day, but I don't consider that to be an issue. I have to pull up my socks, tie my shoes, and adjust pack straps throughout the day also.
