Short story - I think the ACE brace feels like a better quality product and provides more support. It's $2 more expensive, but I would probably buy another ACE brace rather than the ComfyBrace.
Both the ComfyBrace and the ACE brace have fundamentally the same design. They both have a sleeve you put your hand through, with thumb holes on each side of the sleeve so that the sleeve can be worn on either hand. The sleeve covers your palm and extends maybe a third of the way up your forearm. There is some padding along the inside of the forearm and wrist, and then there is a pouch or sac of cushioning (think small pellets, akin to what goes into a bean bag) that is supposed to fit into the palm, to support your palm and your fingers in a "natural" curve. There is also a strip of stiff material sewn into the sleeve that runs down the palm and the length of your wrist and forearm to stabilize your arm. Both braces then have a wrap with three tabs (one at the top of the palm, one around your wrist, and one at the forearm) that allow you to adjust how snugly the sleeve fits.
I think the problem with the ComfyBrace is that the pouch/sac that is supposed to fit into your hand is 1) smaller than the equivalent in the ACE brace; and 2) more loosely filled, so it's thinner and flattens out a bit too much when you set the tabs for the wrap. Wearing the two braces side by side, the ComfyBrace just didn't feel as supportive as the ACE Brace because there wasn't as much cushion for the hand. I felt compelled to tighten the tabs on the ComfyBrace to get the same feeling of support, but perversely, this ended up flattening the pouch, and a lot of the supportive cushioning got squished out to the side, away from my thumb.
In addition, the materials used in the ACE brace feel a little higher quality - the fabrics feel a little less flimsy and the pellets in the cushion for the palm are smaller, so in addition to the palm cushion being larger than the equivalent in the ComfyBrace, it's also firmer and provides more support. YMMV - I've certainly seen some reviews complaining that the ACE brace is bulky. One person's supportive is another person's own bulky, I guess.
In fact, I tried wearing both braces on each hand on different nights, and on the night I tried the ComfyBrace on my right hand (which has worse symptoms), I ended up having to swap the braces and give my right hand the ACE Brace. My right hand was falling asleep with the ComfyBrace on, but this problem stopped once I switched to the ACE Brace. My left hand isn't as bad as the right, and the ComfyBrace has helped on the left.
All in all, the ComfyBrace probably would work for someone with relatively small hands (my own hands are 7.5" around the knuckles), or someone who doesn't have very severe carpal tunnel syndrome. But I think anyone with larger hands or a worse case of carpal tunnel would probably feel better with the ACE Brace.
In addition, FWIW, I've found that while the braces do help at night, they don't get rid of my carpal tunnel symptoms during the day. This is my first time dealing with carpal tunnel, so I thought (perhaps naively) that wearing nighttime braces would address the problem entirely or at least reduce daytime symptoms as well as nighttime symptoms. They mostly help with nighttime problems (for me, it's my hands feeling like they were falling asleep), and certainly my hands look less puffy in the mornings than they used to, before I started wearing the braces. But I still have grip problems during the day, which I assume either need to be treated with a daytime brace (neither the nighttime ComfyBrace nor ACE brace is really compatible with daytime activities), or they will hopefully go away once I'm done being pregnant.
Not so with this pair.
Another very significant plus for it is the ability I have to slip in on to my hands without peeling back the Velcro straps. That is a great benefit considering that the Velcro straps on my other supports always quit fastening as the attached surface softened and wore away. You could make sure there was no lint preventing the straps from holding but it only did so much good.
Some wearers might object to the bulkiness and that can take getting used to, but the girth of their design contributes well to their effectiveness. One of my bad habits while sleeping is to tuck my hands underneath my pillow which causes them to bend and start tingling. These allow me to tuck my hands underneath my pillow but not as far and keeps their support.
So I'm very pleased with these ACE wrist supports and would definitely recommend them.
