    Deroyal Warrior short or Bauerfeind P3 for skiing, no carbon fiber but both are solid knee braces.

    My doc set me up with the Donjoy Full force brace. I like it. Very adjustable, easy fitting it and has carbon fiber pattern on it. Maybe just cosmetic though, hard saying. It is seriously light though...

    Full leg brace is only an immobilizer, you should stop wearing it by week 3 or 4 once you have most of the ROM in the knee back or on your docs schedule.

    I highly recommend those fabric Bauerfiend genutrain braces, I have both the P3 and the A3 braces, I like the A3 a bit more due to fit but both have been great for providing enough stability that I can actually wear all day.

    I have a carbon fiber Donjoy or Assur something I got after one of my knee explosions. Sadly tore the same knee while wearing the brace. NO brace will protect against rotational force, but side impact and hyperextension can be prevented.
    Move upside and let the man go through...

    I wore the full immobilizer from Friday noon until Monday noon for first post op meet. Slept in that bitch.
    I didn't wear it after that until I decided it would make me feel safer getting out and about a little. That didn't last as getting in/outta the car was a PITA.

    I began PT the next day and started using the smaller sport brace about a week later. wasn't doing much to really need any brace that first week anyhoo. Just sitting and a bit of stretching. A drive to the Po box..

    Almost got a full extension today at PT and Flexed to 95 degrees. This Friday is 3 weeks out of surgery. Almost entirely off the crutches. Brain says not yet. Leg says soon now.
    Dang, those Bauerfeind braces look sweet, gonna look into one of those.
    Good luck Mofro...
