This DonJoy knee brace is excellent for the support of mild instabilities of the knee, such as for MCL tears, LCL tears, and mild ACL instability. In addition, it can provide support to people with patella (kneecap) problems, and for those who want more control of their knee than the comfort knee sleeve offers. The DonJoy Drytex Hinged Knee Brace can be used for most non-contact sports. For contact sports, or for even more stability, we recommend our DonJoy Playmaker or DonJoy Legend knee braces.

This knee brace is produced by DonJoy, who is one of the leading sports knee brace manufacturers in the world (they are now called "djortho") and an official supplier of the U.S. Ski Team. DonJoy lists this knee brace as their "Drytex economy hinged knee brace — Wraparound — popliteal cutout".

So why did we pick this knee brace over all the others we tested from different manufacturers? Simple:

  • The Drytex fabric is only produced exclusively for DonJoy. It is a patented Lycra fabric surrounding a nylon core. Drytex is much more comfortable than neoprene, which virtually every other manufacturer uses. In addition it is much more breathable, and therefore less "hot" to wear, especially if you live in a warm climate or are active in sports. Finally, there are people with allergies to neoprene; Drytex is a great solution for them.

  • The wrap-around design allows it to be fit to knees of many shapes and sizes. In our experience, this wrap-around design can be custom-tailored to fit each patient, as compared to typical "pull-up sleeve designs" that most other manufacturers utilize.

  • DonJoy is a very respectable knee brace manufacturer with a long history of producing quality products used by athletes all over the world to support and protect their knees. Most orthopedic surgeons recommend this brand of knee brace.

  • The knee brace just felt better with regards to support than any others we tested.

  • It sells at a price that simply cannot be beat! We doubt you will find a knee brace of such high quality, with the unique features detailed above, for less. Indeed, we have seen knee braces sold at sporting goods stores that are similar in style (but obviously not as high in quality) for much more. At a medical supply shop, this brace typically retails for $140 or higher.
