I have a 15-year-old version of this brace, with the more flexible medial and lateral supports that is slightly small. I ordered the #41 M-brace to get the more rigid supports, and it hasn't disappointed. As a woman with muscular thighs, though, I measured and ordered according to the size guide and found that the middle adjustment over the knee was too large, making the brace not as supportive as it should be. I reordered a size smaller and it fit well, with no problems returning the larger brace to SpaSupply. Perhaps ladies' sizing should take into consideration smaller joint sizes rather than just relying on thigh size. I find it to be an excellent brace for medium-level activities (e.g., hiking on unstable ground, snowshoeing), until I can get my ACL repaired.
I ordered this on the phone with Justin and it was delivered the next day!!
