I have never been disappointed by a EVS product and nothing has changed. This is a great brace and gives me amazing comfortable protection. I would recommend this this brace to any friend looking for knee protection.
Brace is a great temporary solution to play without the pain. The fit wasn't too bad. The arm strap is not the greatest and support strap isn't easy to adjust while wearing but all in all it's a great brace and highly recommend.
I actually bought mine to help with a knee injury so I could stabilize my knee at work. These braces are also sold on medical supply sites as well, but for 2-3 times the price.
It worked OK for me, but I also had problems with the stitching tearing out on the metal brace pockets. I sewed them up with Spiderwire fishing line (kevlar braid) and worked great for what I needed it for. For me the fit was OK, if a little snug, and , yes, the top strap is pretty unforgiving. Was going to swap the strap out for a H-D elastic/velcro set up but had surgery so now I don't need it anymore.
Worht the money? Yeah, for me anyway...
I was in between a large and extra large. Bought the extra large and returned them for a large. I went for a long ride on warm day and liked them so much I bought another pair. They seem to keep me in the saddle longer. No complaint except that there isn't a fly and they feel a bit weird when walking around but great while sitting on the bike!
