The cost is reasonable at $19.95 which includes free shipping. Now we have reviewed the copper fit products in the past, and got a lot of feed back on it. The biggest complaint was the ordering system used for those products. It would seem that when people were placing their orders they didn’t even get a chance to review the order and some ended up paying more than they expected. It looks like this time around they have fixed the order problem which evolved around the shipping costs, as there are no shipping costs with the Copper Fit Back Pro.
This product may indeed work as indicated, meaning it will wick away moisture and prevent odors, but is this REALLY because of this supposed copper infusion? We doubt it. (Hint: a cotton athletic sock promises to basically do the same thing.) The study they cite points to copper’s use as an antimicrobial surface talks about when it’s used on tables at hospitals, not weaved into clothing.
I bought a second pair from Amazon and the box looked legit but the product is different. The ones from Amazon had a different top elastic where the grippy part that keeps them up was not sticky at all. From the first day a bought them, they immediately fall down. They can not be worn when walking. Just waking ten feet from my office to the kitchen and the fall down below my knee. The original pair from bed bath beyond never had this problem until they were many months old and stretched from wear.
Does this mean your discomfort will be reduced? As your doctor will certainly tell you, this largely depends on what’s causing your discomfort in the first place. For example, as we outlined in the first section, are your ankles swollen to the point of being painful? If so, compression socks like Energy Socks might be able to help. Just remember that we’re not told exactly how much compression Energy Socks provide, or whether or not this will be enough to deliver results.
Consumer Reports has also reviewed the research into the use of copper to ease pain and has found little evidence of the metal’s ability to lessen aches. A 2013 study of 70 people with rheumatoid arthritis (a relatively large sample for this kind of research), published in the journal PLOS ONE, concluded that wearing a copper wrist strap did not help ease pain. “There are also no reliable studies supporting the healing powers of copper-infused fabrics,” says Consumer Reports medical director Orly Avitzur, M.D. “It’s extremely unlikely that these fabrics would provide any therapeutic benefit beyond compression for arthritis or pain,” Avitzur says.
For the past four years, my husband has been traveling for work. Round trip, we drive/ride for five hours weekly. Little did we know that this would have a huge impact on our bodies. Not only was the ride impactful, but sleeping in a hotel bed continued to place more stress on our lower backs. While surfing the internet, I stumbled across the Copper Fit advertisement. Reluctantly, I purchased the Copper Fit Back product. To my amazement, the product has performed according to its advertising claims. I wear the belt when I am bending, stooping and riding in the car. I also wear it to bed when sleeping on the hotel bed. Each morning my back feels refreshed and I can move free of pain.
Without going into excessive detail, compression socks like Energy Socks gently squeeze your legs, which moves blood upward toward your heart, thereby preventing swelling. Some garments provide a single level of compression, while others (like Energy Socks) claim to provide graduated compression—which means the compression is greatest around your ankles and decreases at it moves up the leg.
Instead of wicking away sweat like the Copper Fit Socks, many other sport socks will trap sweat and its accompanying odors in the socks and your shoes. This ends up making feet very smelly once the shoes and socks are taken off. Furthermore, most pairs of sport socks do not provide compression or offer the numerous benefits of copper that these ones do.
The reason why I bought this is because of customers review and the rating, it's not worth five star at all. I've only had for 2 weeks but it's already falling apart. I'm normally a large on gloves, I irdered a medium size so it'll be a little tight to give me a better support, but its not giving a full support as I expected it's loose, stitching on the sides are coming off, grip (rubber) on palms are coming off. If im ask if I'll recommend it to other consumer I would tell them no, find other brands out there.
In the article linked above, Gunnar Andersson, MD, Ph.D., professor and chairman emeritus of the Department of Orthopedic Surgery at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago says that "Generally speaking, the lower back is subject to a lot of mechanical stress and strain. The reason is the weight of the upper body, which always puts loads on the lower back."
I received my gloves 29 days after ordering. It has been four days now and the seems are spiting open between the fingers. The emblem fell off the left hand after two hours. The gripping rubber strips are falling off the fingers. I also ordered a pair for my wife and using the size chart, ordered hers. She said the circulation in her fingers are cut off after a half hour, she can't wear them. Very poor quality for $20.00.

The first thing I will say is this back support I guess is called Copper Fit because of the threading that was sown into it that is a copper color. I do not believe there is more than two cents worth of copper in it. Take away form that, as a back support, it does quite a good job. I have been wearing it for four days and when I used to get sciatic pain when walking. I don't have that problem when wearing the Copper Fit back support. So kudos to that. When purchasing from Canada, with all the shipping charges, dollar exchange, customs charges and taxes the cost ended up being $60.00 Canadian. At this time I feel the support is worth the cost for the pain relief that I am presently experiencing, although not totally gone, is better than before.
Whether or not compression socks have been scientifically proven to work is of little concern to those who believe in compression wear. Copper Fit has become a proven and trusted brand over the past several years, and most of their products have been met with positive consumer ratings. At a cost of about $20 for two pair of compression socks, I believe Copper Fit Energy Socks are a solid buy.
A co-worker gave me a knee brace after complaining about my knee hurting at work. It seemed to help within the first hour of wearing it (despite that it was a medium and I had to stretch it out on a coffee can for three days before I could fit it up my leg without feeling like my circulation was being cut off). So I wore it for the next three days only at work. After I took it off, the third day I noticed a red ring around my leg, I assumed was from being tight. The next day the ring began to itch, so I did not wear it again. Three days after taking it off, the ring is still there and itches like no other. It burns and stings so bad. After reading another review, I believe it may be an allergy to the silicone. I don't know if I will be wearing it again even though it seemed to be helping my knee pain.
