    I have orthoactive which are from canada, bought from my physio, I have to wear them as I dislocate easily. Depends on what you need and why.

    Gall Brothers is the way to go..... Steve Gall got me into using them after I did some moto stuff with him. Helped the knees more than I could ever explain.

    One of the guys I knew in Whistler who is a level 4 instructor blew his knee ski racing, he got a Gall bros brace and was out skiing and teaching two days later, that convinced me they are worth it.

    Hi guys, i use Asterisk Cell knee braces for motorbike riding and have been considering using them when i ski, just wondering if anybody has used them skiing and if so what their experiences were?

    i have read some reports on other forums of people using them for snow sports and they are meant to be just as good as any other brand in the same style/range.
