Which is the best knee brace for skiing?

Once you ski, you either love it or hate it. Those that love it would do anything to keep going year on year and buy anything to keep them on the slopes all day, every day. Speak to any skier and most will tell you they stopped skiing because they tore their Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). Commonly felt as a 'pop' when the lower leg twists causing too much strain on the main ligament holding it in place. Well DonJoy have a knee brace that will allow you to ski with a damaged or even a completely torn ACL! The DonJoy Armor Knee Brace is a lightweight, aircraft grade aluminium frame that swoops around the calf and thigh, taking all the weight away from the ACL but allowing a near normal range of motion. Designed to fit while wearing ski boots the Armor is the Knee brace of choice for many professional Winter Sport athletes and sponsor of the USA Ski Team. The design of the brace is so open that there is no issue with any material bunching behind the knee and no sweat, making it one of the most comfortable all day knee braces ever. The only thing that this support doesn't do is offer any compression but you can always wear compressive, thermal leggings underneath, but for any injury sitting with a gin and tonic and an ice pack on at the end of the day doesn't seem like a bad option, alternating between the ice pack and the hot tub on the balcony would only increase circulation and aid recovery (something to bear in mind when booking your next trip). Normal RRP - £499.99    Firstaid4sport Special Price - £429.96* See the video below for the look and feel of the brace.   https://youtu.be/7ZQI98LhJtc
