I ordered two of these IT band straps a week ago and this product has already began to break. The materials used simply are not nearly durable enough. Testing should have revealed that they tear and fray very easily, even when the product is used as intended. The design works well, but Vive should make these IT band straps out of the same material that they use on their thigh braces, which are far more durable.
Other vive products are excellent but these simply won't last more than a few weeks of use.
