Support The Calf Joint

How does the calf support work?
Bearhug use bamboo charcoal in a unique composition within their calf support. Bamboo charcoal supports have been scientifically proven to increase blood flow through the joint compared to ordinary supports.
This increased blood flow drives oxygenated blood to the calf joint flushing out any toxins in the calf and lower leg which helps your muscle, ligaments, tendons and soft tissue repair quicker while providing pain relief and reducing inflammation and swelling from sports like running.

These are excellent!
These are super comfortable and I can wear them for ages both during and after playing touch rugby - they’ve really helped with muscle pain recovery and shin splints.
Work a treat
Very well fitted and comfortable, pain relief has been noticeable but need more time to benefit from them.
Welcome to the pack Joseph!
Really well made . Very supportive and comfy. Quite think so great for the winter. Love them for running and walking
Welcome to the pack Catherine!
Nice support although I have small ankles in comparison to my calfs, so they feel a little loose around the ankles. This wouldn’t be an issue though if the length was shorter so as not to go as far down as the ankles (I’m 5’6” - 30” inside leg). Maybe Bearhug bring out Short leg versions? Also they would be better in Black with White detail I feel. Hopefully, new colour ways will come out in the future
Thanks for the feedback Simon, we'll be sure to take it on for our NPD. Welcome to the pack!
They cover ankle to knee and fit perfectly, My measurement was in between , but I went down a size, I think going up wouldn’t have been so well fitting
Thanks for the feedback Brenda - welcome to the pack!
