Knee support brace review

 I was sent this item to review.

This is the knee support brace from Calibre Support. It's easy to wear as it fastens with velcro, which also means it's fully adjustable. You can make it tighter if needs be or loosen it easily. It's made of soft neoprene material which makes it really comfortable, and it's also easy to just fold up and pop in your bag.

As I've mentioned on here before, I have Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (now known as Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder). This means I get daily joint pain, and frequent dislocations and unstable joints among other things. I often use different supports for helping things stay in place or to ease pain.

This particular support has been great for days when I'm needing a little extra stability in my knees, and for applying some pressure to the area to ease pain.  However if my joints were very unstable I would probably use something with a little more strength behind it due to have severe my condition can be.
I really like how lightweight this is and again it's very comfortable, and easy to wear over or under clothing. It's also not restrictive and I am able to fully bend my knee whilst wearing it thanks to the open patella section, although still getting that added support.
