Steph tested this knee sleeve on many day hikes. Mostly ranging from 7.5 miles/day and anywhere from 1,000ft – 2,000 elevation gains.
Seamless Construction & Comfort
All CEP’s knee sleeves are woven together in a way that creates no seams. The different compression zones are all seamlessly constructed making for a very comfortable sleeve to wear while being very active with a lot of movement.
I found the Light Knee Sleeve to be very comfortable. I hardly noticed it was on, except for the benefits it provided. The material is pretty thin and you can’t tell I’m wearing a compression sleeve under my hiking pants at all.
The only seam in the knee sleeve is where the top non-slip band is attached to the compression sleeve. But it is still a pretty smooth seam that doesn’t cause any rubbing while wearing it.
Non Slip Top Band
The knee sleeve stays in place well. Just make sure you measure your thigh and calf accurately when choosing a size. It also comes with a non-slip silicone band at the top that helps a lot to keep it in place.
I used this CEP Light Support Knee Sleeve on multiple hikes around the Eastern Sierra. I suffer from a couple over-use injuries and knee pain, especially while going downhill. It was very interesting to experience how wearing the knee sleeve helped alleviate the symptoms I get in my knees.
I would wear the sleeve on one knee for a bit and then switch. I also switched between the different compression types that CEP offers as well. When I had the sleeve on one knee I noticed the difference in performance and strength between the knee without the sleeve and the knee with the sleeve. The cool part was, when I switch the sleeve to the other knee, my knee pain went away almost instantly. Even if I started wearing the knee sleeve mid-hike while my knee was already angry.
I really liked using the light support knee sleeve while hiking. And felt it was extremely comfortable to wear without being too noticeable. The compression gave my knee this light hug the while time and I could tell that it added stably and helped with muscle fatigue, especially on longer hikes.
