When compared to other compression sleeves though, Copper Fit’s namesake is in its copper-infused fabric, which is claimed to help prevent the buildup of bacteria that can lead to the appearance of stains and odors, and that can accelerate fabric deterioration. While these copper ions only make up about 4% of Copper Fit’s total materials, the company makes it seem like it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.
I have had problems over the years working on my feet for long periods of time. When I would get home at night I would have swelled ankles, fatigued legs, and muscle cramps. I had seen this product advertised on TV and wondered if it was worth looking into. I got my Carol Wright catalog and saw them in there so thought what the heck. I ordered two pair to try and ended up liking them so much that I ordered 8 more pair! I have used compression socks in the past some were too tight, some would shrink, and others would slip down during the course of the day. These are perfect-no slipping down, perfect fit, and haven't shrunk (I do wash in cold and hang to dry). Thanks to these now I come home without wanting to cut my legs off at the knee. Great product.
If you do a trade for a living that requires you to work with your hands, or if you're an office worker who types for hours, you'll likely find wearing these gloves helpful. You'll still have access to your fingertips if needed, but you'll be less likely to develop repetitive strain injuries in your hands, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. For those users who feel silly wearing them in the office where others can see, wearing them after work to reduce aches and stiffness could still be a benefit to you.
This means that, from a performance perspective, it’s likely that Copper Fit will provide the same level of support as any generic neoprene sleeve from your local pharmacy. In fact, Copper Fit is available at a variety of retailers, so if you’re dead-set on trying it out, this can help you save a ton of hassle if you need to return it, as well as losing a big chunk of change in non-refundable S&H charges.
As you might imagine, there can be dozens (perhaps even hundreds) of different causes of leg and feet swelling and pain, including water retention (usually the result of standing or sitting for too long), an allergic reaction, certain medications (some severe), as well as many medical conditions. Regardless of what causes it though, leg and arm swelling is a condition known as peripheral edema.
This are wonderful. I thought because they were really a low price that they might not work. Tommy Copper is to high for budget, but let me tell you these work just as good and for a fraction of the cost. I have recommended these to my quilting buddies and they have already tried them. We all laugh at how well they work for all of us while quilting by hand. I have seen some others complaining about non good quality and that they tear up easy. I have had my compression gloves for some times, Not only do I wear my gloves everyday to quilt, but I have slept in the numerous nights and they have not even started showing any wear. Now if that is poor quality something is wrong with these others measurement of what good quality is. These glove are AWESOME.

Every Copper Fit product I have owned has been made of high-quality materials and held up well over time. I still wear a Copper Fit elbow sleeve that is several years old and has outlasted other elbow sleeves I’ve tried. Thus, if you seek relief for pain, stiffness, and swelling in your hands, Copper Fit Gloves will probably fit the bill. I wouldn’t expect miracles, but based on my many experiences with Copper Fit, I believe these will probably be one of the better compression gloves available in its price range.
Bought these for my mother in-law, who has Osteoarthritis in her knees. She has used them for several weeks now (I purchased 2) - and she now has another option when it comes to pain management. I'm writing this testimonial on her behalf. She's told me that they are super comfortable, the material is very breathable and has some sort of anti-odor properties, as it is super hot where I live and she says she lets them air out at night. She wears them when she goes out walking and says they help immensely. I would recommend these for anyone looking for an inexpensive option - just anything to help that's not medicinal.
