9x12 Comfort Gel Pack
Currently unavailable

Use this on my shoulder. It takes only a few seconds out of the freezer for the pack to move and shape to whatever you'd like. It stays ice cold for about 30min. Very happy to have an ice pack solution that isn't a crappy bag of ice that becomes a bad of cold water!

I got this to use on my shoulder which has had two surgeries. Gets pretty sore after exercising/playing sports as I'm still not fully recovered from the most recent one. This is definitely large and works great!

These came in handy for my wisdom teeth extraction. They are small, easy to apply and have a soft side perfect for applying to sensitive skin. Not only are they cold packs, but also warm packs, perfect for alternating cold and hot to produce to best result by creating cold compress vs hot compress. I recommend these bc you can freeze and heat these depending on your actual needs.

I just had bilateral carpel tunnel surgery and have been using these ice packs at night to help with pain and swelling. They are perfect. They are large enough that I can wrap around my wrists and they stay cold for a while. Haven't tried using them as a hot pack but for a cold pack they are great. Much better than using ice- no mess.

Cold comfort-doesn’t freeze into a hard mass

The gel pack stays cold but does not freeze so that it is comfortable on my back injury and helps relieve the pain.

Cold and comfortable!

…I had a knee injury and putting this ice pack on top of my knee let it fit over my knee and ice the whole thing. 10/10, would recommend.

Perfect For Shoulder Injury

I got this to use on my shoulder which has had two surgeries. Gets pretty sore after exercising/playing sports as I'm still not fully recovered from the most recent one. This is definitely large and works great!

A must have for athletics and injuries.

Stays soft and very flexible while cold. It truly keeps cooler than any other packs I’ve purchased. With student athletes in the house and my stubborn C spine I just ordered a second one. I Highly recommend this product.

Great for wider range injuries

Great size! Bought it for my shoulder blades.

Best ice pack out there for injuries

The Chattanooga ice packs are the best. I had back surgery and I keep one at home and one at work so I can ice down when I get sore. They stay cold for a very long time. They are super cold though so make sure you wrap something around them to protect your skin. These are worth every penny!

Great for sports injuries!

I bought this ice pack after doing physical therapy and they used a similar ice pack after my therapy sessions. I wrap it in a pillow case and it provides adequate cooling for 20 minutes. It does take up a good amount in the freezer and the company suggests you lay it flat as often as you can. Additionally, pay attention to your freezer temperature setting as the manufacturer recommends that this ice pack not be frozen past a specific temp.

The best ice pack for injuries

These are awesome! Just what i needed. I have sacroiliac issues and these allow me to apply ice directly on the issue, not big cumbersome bags. And you can put them under your leggings and they hold them in place

IceWraps

Exactly as described...perfect to keep in the freezer for occasional accidents/injuries.

Has anyone used these for migraines, and if so, how well do they work?

I have not used for migraines. They are small ice packs you can hold in your hand and stay cold for only 15-20 minutes. They're perfect for minor injuries but may not stay cold long enough for migraine relief.

The most convenient ice packs for injury

I love the fact that you can stick the ice pack directly on the injury etc.( Using the white side)Without to put a towel around.…

more injuries than we care to admit, but these come in handy !

IceWraps Round Glue Gel Packs with Cloth

Perfect size and easy to use, Great item to have around for smaller injuries.

Useful for small injuries, aches and pains

Small in size, so easy to use in various areas and keep in freezer. Fabric material on back helps from being burned, if you don't have a paper towel or cloth on hand immediately. Keeps cold/cool for a decent amount of time, given it's small size. Even after frozen, just massage for a few seconds and it is soft gel again that forms easily around whatever it needs to

Great for eye injury.

Great item! I used for after getting eyeliner tattooed. Perfect size and clothes covered side is just right.

School Injuries

We use these for the kids at our school. They are perfect!

Great for injuries/ surgeries

I just had bilateral carpel tunnel surgery and have been using these ice packs at night to help with pain and swelling. They are perfect. They are large enough that I can wrap around my wrists and they stay cold for a while. Haven't tried using them as a hot pack but for a cold pack they are great. Much better than using ice- no mess.

GREAT FOR INJURIES.

I like the size of the gel ice packs and they're flexible. You can place them in a paper towel and then on the injured area for 20 minutes at a time. Works well.

For people with injuries and aches, these gel packs are great help!

I have had 5 knee surgeries and have a bad lower back! I use these gel packs every day to help with swelling and pain. They work great straight out of the freezer. I like the thicker plastic cover that they come with now!

Great to have around the house for injuries!

I shattered my ankle and these things were fantastic to have around the house to help with the swelling after surgery. The keep cold for about 20 mins or so. I haven't used them for heat, but the gel seems like it would hold it for about the same time.

Don't like sleeping with a Leaky Icepack ? Get these and problem solved.

These are just the right size for the frequent minor (and sometimes major) injuries that occur at our gym!

Great for back injuries
