IT Band Strap (Read 34 times)

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a good IT band strap?

     

    The ones I have worn over the years seem to wear out in about a years time or less.  The Velcro just does not last.  I have tried 3-4 different kinds/brands.

     

    Just wondering if there is a really good product out there.

      My wife used to use the IT band strap made by Pro-Tec, and she loved it. I've generally liked all the products I've bought from them - high quality and well designed. It seemed to hold up for a long time for her, but I'm not sure how long. Depending on how much you train, I'd expect anything to wear out (or smell permanently bad) with enough use.

       

      Ideally, over time you strengthen that and the supporting muscles so you don't need it. Foam rolling along the way helps, too. But the strap can be a great band-aid in the meantime.

        Protec is good.

        That did it for me.

            I feel like I had pro tec before but I will check them out again.

             

            I don't use for ITBS, I use for another issue.  Without this strap, my long distance runs don't turn out well.
