I’m generally not a fan of covering the patella, but these new designs (4 part) seem to be an advancement over the ‘one sleeve fits all’ neoprene of the past.

Also wondering if compression wear (shorts, leggings, ‘copperwear’ etc) are valuable assets in keeping the body warm/blood flow/etc. or if it’s somewhat a fad.

Any thoughts/advice/recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mike

I don't know about the warm part. But I've had a pair of Tommy Coppers for about 3 years. I've had 3 knee surgeries and they do help some when the arthritis pain flares up.
I don't reckon I got no reason to kill nobody...
