FlexiKold cold packs are not only more flexible than competitors, but they stay colder for a longer period of time too. Why? It’s the Gel. FlexiKold is powered by a proprietary gel interior that remains pliable when frozen, resulting in a colder, thinner, and more flexible cold pack that provides superior contact with the treated area and easily conforms to any part of your body.
FlexiKold offers a professionally double sealed gel pack, that prevents leaking, with a smooth high-quality feel.
I really did buy this. I like it because it is so large. You must remember to always put a cloth of some kind between it. It is different than some cold packs with can be put directly on skin. This one is definitely NOT be put next to skin, but with a cloth in between.
It work well and lays in freezer easily, is bendable, and is so helpful. I thought about buying some for surprise gifts. Shipment was timely as described. Appreciated.
I was recently in physical therapy for my shoulder (torn rotator cuff, bursitis and arthritis), and my therapist would place an ice pack on my shoulder at the end of my sessions to counteract inflammation.
It was so soothing and far superior to small, rigid home gel packs that I decided to buy a quality home ice pack to continue my treatment. I always check Walmart online first because of their low prices and the possibility of free shipping.
I purchased the FlexiKold Gel Ice Pack because it seemed comparable to my therapist’s ice pack at half the price and with free shipping. I am very happy with this product and would definitely recommend it.

Excellent product! Exactly what I was needing. I am disabled because of neck and back injuries. The neck and back pads stay cold or hot for long periods of time. They fit me perfectly. I like that the neck pad comes with a protective velvet wrap that you can put the pad into to protect you from the heat and cold.
I have two suggestions: 1. ) It would be smart to include the velvet wrap with the back pad also. 2. ) I would love it if the back pad could be made vertically longer up to the shoulders. Thank you for making a great product.
I talk non stop about it. I will purchase both products again as Christmas gifts.
There is very small amount of gel so it Doesnt get that cold and doesnt stay cold long. The outside pack it nice but small amount of gel makes it a bad pack for me. Ive used three other brands and they all have at least 2 times as much gel and work a lot better.
Maybe the one I got are rejects I hope so for the company because these are no good the way they are.
I thought this was going to be soft and pliable when it was frozen like the one I got from my physical therapy office. It’s not Its stiff as a board when it is cold and you can’t wrap it around your knee/arm whatever.
Plus it is colder than you would expect, so you have to have a towel. But when you take the towel away, the sheet or whatever you had it resting on is so cold that you can’t even put your leg down on it.
there must be something in the inside gel or liquid that makes it colder than water when it freezes. Overall, I am not happy with my purchase.

They, so far, are of good quality. A little longer than I expected to fit into my shoulder support with a rocket to insert a gel pack. but. I fold it in half before freezing and it slides into the pocket.
and remains colder even longer. so, it’s a win-win.

All it needs is an optional shorter second strap. I use it to prepare my skin for my 3-times-a-week MS medication injection and it’s great for holding the hot pack against my hip or abdomen and I can make it work for my thigh.
But on days that my injection is scheduled for upper arm? The strap is too long, and since it can’t really be shortened, I’m back to holding it for 20 minutes.
I was shocked at how full each gel pack was. I’ve bought at least 10 ice packs of different brands over the past 6 years due to migraines & have yet to obtain even ONE this full. After freezing, the time it stayed truly cold was FULLY twice that of any other.
I am a PE teacher, track and wrestling coach. I am also an avid lifted and fitness minded person as well as coaching and I am constantly physically active with aches & pains!

One of the best ice packs I’ve ever used! I have rheumatoid arthritis and spinal stenosis which pinches my sciatic nerve in my left leg. Its almost unbearable. Once I started using this ice pack, I started getting relief in about 15 minutes.
After about 25 minutes the nerve calmed down and I was relieved of my pain. Now im awaiting my back surgery. These ice packs are very wonderful!!.
When we received the cold pack it had multiple holes in it leaking out the gel. The edges were frayed. Package was in good shape so the product had a quality control problem. I have had one for years and it works great.
I bought this one for my daughter and Im really disappointed.
This company makes the best cold packs I have ever found. They are vastly superior to anything else I have seen or used in the past. They are extremely well-made and durable. They get cold rapidly in the freezer and retain the cold much longer than anything else I’ve tried.
They mold easily to different parts of the body and are comfortable to lie on. I own the large rectangular one which is great for my back and hips. Works well wrapped around legs as well. I also own two of the strap on ones and use them for my low back when I’m working or driving,the very little I am able to do right now.
I was injured by a chiropractor who did drop-table adjustments on my pelvis. This caused a ruptured disc and the worst sciatica I have ever experienced. These packs are getting me through until my date with the neurosurgeon.
I’ll be very happy to have them for my post surgical recovery too. I highly recommend these packs. I was not paid or otherwise compensated to write this review.
This Large 9″x12″ ice pack is good for relieving pains treatable by cold therapy. Good for back pain and post surgical care but can be applied anywhere on the body to ease pain and discomfort. Stays flexible when frozen! Stays cold longer! Strong, durable and Reusable! Instructions printed directly on pack! Non Toxic and Latex free!.
They are not FULL of the Gel, & when you use them, it separates, & the icy part goes to one side, or the other. They need to FILL the pack, with the Gel, so, that they are usable. I bought them in hopes of using them, for relief on the bottom of my feet, & was very disappointed.
when I put my feet on the pads, it smooshes the Gel to each side, & not much Gel stays under my foot/ staying in the middle of the pad, & it just pushes-over to the sides. They need to FILL the pouches with the Gel!.
I had neck pain and head also back pain for many years this ice pack stays cold and does a greart job even on my pain which I have ever day. I would suggest this ice pack to help with pain, If you put wet heat for 15 minutes, then this cold pack for 15 minutes it helps great with pain.

Did not get cold even after 24 hours in the freezer. have waited to hear from them. Nothing. Very disappointed. Really needed this to work. I have never given such a negative review. After waiting almost 2 months to hear from Co.
I have only used it for cold. The pack stays pliable when left in the freezer overnight at temperature of -5 degrees F. The fabric sleeve allows it to be placed on the skin at those temperatures for a short period of time, but I found that a wash cloth or similar between it and the skin would allow for longer applications.
I gave it 4 stars only because I did not try them for warm applications.
I’m going through some back pain right now and the biggest pain about it is trying to hold an ice pack on my shoulder all the time, gauze wasn’t exactly cutting it so I started looking around until I found this miracle.
It works great! the strap is breathable, stretchy and the ice pack is just big enough to make an impact. I just throw my clothes over it and I’m right as rain.

Don’t let the Product Name of Cervical Ice Pac restrict anyone from appreciating the multiple location uses of this terrific item. If you are interested in specific targeting of any point along a limb, this is the product that will give you maximum 360 degree icing in a local area with maximum satisfaction.
Great for knees, ankles, elbows and wrists, as well as the neck and head. Highly recommended that two be purchased per order so that icing can be done on multiple targets in one session as in shoulder and elbow, or knee and ankle.
Employ those old pillow cases to assist wrapping the pacs around limbs and to enhance comfort. Forget those big bulky ice packs even if your target area involves the trunk. This pack will service your entire body, will be the most convenient ice you ever own and will last forever.
I’ve had both knees ACL reconstructed, both hips resurfaced, and just had my left knee replaced. The surgeon for my hips and knee replacement has always recommended the Polar Kodiak ice machine which sends ice water through these tubes continuously.
Great concept, but the Polar Kodiak knee pad only covers half the knee (go figure) and while their hip pad is bigger, it’s shaped like an H so doesn’t cover the whole knee either. So you have to do it twice.
crazy. But that’s not a problem for not with the Chattanooga ColPak 9″ x 21″ pad. It covers the entire knee surface, is super cold (don’t put directly on skin, use a cover). It’s the BEST!.
I have used many different reusable ice packs in my life time and this ColPac is the best. First off, the material is great, it is slightly thicker than your standard ice pack which feels a lot more durable.
The cold pack is filled with gel and is moldable which helps you completely cover the area you are trying to ice. I use this ice pack for everything! I ice my knees after a run or playing basketball.
My right ankle tends to get sore from an old injury, so I use this Colpac anytime I feel any soreness. I suffer from carpal tunnel and it helps soothe the pain almost instantly. I’ve also used it when I don’t feel well and have a headache or a fever.
It feels great and cools you down quickly. I love this ice pack and love that they have different sizes.
Why You Need This Reusable Hot & Cold Gel Pack Get proactive in treating your aches and pains by keeping at least one of our Hot & Cold Therapy Gel Packs on hand. Microwave and freezer safe, this gel pack is convenient and easy to use.
There is so much confusion surrounding this topic, which is unfortunate because RICE treatment combined with therapeutic icing and heating (cryotherapy and thermotherapy) is an effective, affordable, and safe self-treatment option for many common, painful problems including: Arthritis Back pain Sprains or strains Pulled muscles Swelling Specifically suffering from lower back pain and tightness? Find out why a heated back brace is a good way to get rid of back pain and when heat therapy is NOT the answer.
In order to understand the benefits of cold, hot, and contrast therapy, it’s important to know why and when heat and ice work for pain relief—and when they don’t. Keep reading for more specifics and insight on what type of temperature therapy you should be using.
Ice vs. Heat Therapy: Which Is Best? Knowing what situations call for heat, and which call for ice can be tricky. Sometimes a single treatment might include both. As a general rule of thumb, use cold for acute injuries or pain, inflammation, and swelling.
Use heat for muscle pain, tightness, and stiffness. When Should I Use a Cold Compress When chilled, our flexible ice pack eases discomfort from acute injuries, sprains or strains, muscle soreness, spasms, bruises, swelling, and tension headaches.
The use of ice, or very cold temperatures, in a medical manner is known as cryotherapy. It is effective because it causes your blood vessels to narrow (vasoconstriction). Your muscles contract, inflammation is lowered, and pain signals are reduced.
On the contrary, ice can make muscle tension and spasms worse. How to Use This Cold Therapy Gel Pack Place flattened gel pack in freezer for 4 hours or more. Remains flexible when frozen. Wrap in cloth towel or place in compatible brace, then apply to affected area.
Use in 20 minutes increments or as medically prescribed. Allow skin to warm before reapplying. Return gel pack to freezer. How Does Heat Help Pain & When Should I Use It? When warmed, our heating pad soothes pain caused by cramping, stiff necks, backaches, and arthritis.
Unlike ice, heat therapy is a vasodilator, increasing circulation by expanding your blood vessels. This increased blood flow draws nutrients and oxygen to the injured area, which aids the healing process and helps your body’s cells get rid of waste products.
Unlike ice, heat can make inflammation and swelling worse so avoid hot therapy when treating an acute injury. Acute injuries are usually the result of a single, traumatic event, such as wrist fractures, ankle sprains, shoulder dislocations, and muscle strain.
Hot Therapy Instructions For best heating results, store at room temperature. If gel pack has been in freezer, remove and let it thaw to room temperature before heating. Place flattened gel pack in microwave and heat for 1 minute.
Carefully check temperature, squeezing gel around to distribute heat. Reheat in 30-second increments until desired temperature is reached. Wrap in cloth towel or place in compatible brace, then apply to affected area.
If gel pack feels uncomfortably hot, remove pack from body and reapply once it cools. Alternating Ice & Heat Therapy Sometimes, choosing only ice or heat doesn’t provide enough relief, which is where contrast therapy comes in.
Contrast therapy involves alternating applications of heat and ice to relieve pain associated with injury or overexertion. With this therapeutic method, you can simultaneously lessen puffiness, promote circulation, and loosen tight muscles.
This is usually achieved with a hot and cold bath, either dunking a limb or even immersing your entire body. However, a similar effect can also be achieved with two of our gel packs. Simply cycle between cold and hot therapy over a 20 to 30-minute period, with each application of an ice / heat lasting three to five minutes.
End with an ice pack. Research shows contrasting is most effective for treating repetitive strain injuries, so the best candidates for contrasting are those who suffer from: Plantar fasciitis Achilles tendinitis Shin splints Runner’s knee Patellofemoral pain syndrome Carpal tunnel syndrome Tennis elbow 5 Reasons Why People Love This Ice Wrap & Heat Pad Compatible Back Braces Are Available for Purchase Looking for hands-free support?

These are the best ice packs for pain, hands down. I sewed my own back-pack “holder” to keep TWO of them in place on my upper back, and they last for hours. Not for 8 hours, but far longer than any other ice packs we have used.
And they don’t ‘collapse’ (where the colder part settles to the bottom). They remain stationary the entire time. We have been using these ice packs for years for different pain areas and decided to order two more.
Very pleased! The older ones still work, but after years, they do lose their ‘freeze’ quicker than the new ones. I have ordered/bought more expensive ice packs for larger back coverage, from other vendors local and online; but have found that it is just better to use two of these.
These are really just the best ice packs we have found anywhere.
I use a cold pack for migraines. This cold pack stays cold long enough for me to go to sleep and stay asleep. It is not the perfect cold pack, but it IS the best one I’ve found. Pros: – Stays cold significantly longer than any other cold pack I have tried.
– Good customer support. Cons: – More expensive than most other packs – Pack is very stiff right out of the freezer – Fabric sleeve falls apart eventually – Blue gel pods burst / leak eventually – Pack starts leaking eventually Seems like the cons would outweigh the pros, but this pack does its primary job very well until it starts to fall apart.
If you’re using this a few times a week, then expect it to last about 4-6 months before something tears up. The stitching has started coming loose on all 4 of the packs I have. All 4 have had some of the blue pods burst, and all have had the gel leak out of the bag eventually.
I have 4 because I bought 2 and then had the manufacturer replace both of them due to the leaks, so at least customer service is good. While I would love for the manufacturer to make a more durable pack or charge less for this one as-is, the only real con in using the pack is that it is very stiff when you first take it out of the freezer.
Once applied, though, it easily stays cold for 2-3 hours. I have a clay pack (sold here at Walmart) that only stays cold for about 20 minutes and I have some gel packs that stay cold for a little over an hour.
The last thing I want when I have a migraine is to have to get up and go to the freezer to change out cold packs when I was just about to fall asleep. This pack takes care of that problem. Just count on replacing it a little too often.
I absolutely love this ice pack! I had major foot surgery that caused horrible swelling. I had to aggressively ice and do 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off. CryoMax ice packs have made it so easy. I can easily get 3 or 4 intervals with these ice packs, where all the others I’ve ordered I can’t even get 2 intervals.
The strap also makes it super easy to keep the ice where it needs to be. Definitely worth the price!.
Durable nylon cover is much more durable than vinyl. Will not dry out or crack like vinyl or polyurethane covers. The durable nylon cover with the high quality gel remains flexible after being in a in a sub-zero freezer over 24 hours.
Easy to clean with standard anti-microbial sprays. Gel pack has ability to maintain complete contact with the treated area. Can completely wrap around a 360 degree area. Our proprietary gel stays colder for a longer period of time than other products that use bentonite or glycol formulas.

I train jiu jitsu multiple times a week and snowboard as much as I can when the snow falls. At 41 years old the bones and muscles are just not as limber as they used to be. The back brace is a great way to hold a hot pack against my back before jiu jitsu to help lossen me up.
And when an injury does occur the ice pack is great for hot cold therapy. The size and quality of the packs are great. My wife uses the back brace to wrap an ice pack around her shoulder, she also trains.
We now have four packs in the house. We have tried numerous other brands but the Old Bones brand out does the other brands when it comes to how long the packs stay hot and cold and with the size.
Great design and well made. Feeling relief from a situation with two herniated discs. Big help supporting my weakened lower back stability and hot and cold packs are fantastic. Can’t say enough good things about this product.
I recommend always start and finish with a cold sequence per instructions on the packs. Heat feels good but if used at all should be in between icings in my opinion to do the best job of reducing inflammation.
Well I put this in the micro for 30 seconds and gives me like around three minutes of warmth but I think that’s me being asking too much perhaps. Now the fit and quality is excellent. I put it on top of my elbow joint.
This long lasting cold pack has an innovative and reusable gel that freezes fast and lasts for hours outside the freezer. Its “ice cooling cells” keep it extra cold, while surrounding gel makes it flexible and super comfortable.
Superior breakthrough technology stays flexible and soft while frozen and moulds to the body for maximum pain relief. The dual sided sleeve with hook and loop closures helps keep pack in place to deliver optimal results.
Excellent for soothing pain and reducing swelling from sports or other injuries, carpal tunnel, or arthritis flare-ups.
My Husband likes this it bends nice he like s the Velcro strap to hold it in place. I had made one and the bag kept leaking even double bagged. Our old one would thaw and all the gel would move to the ends where you didn’t need the cold.
This has pockets of the gel and can’t do that. We purchase another brand that was clay well that was to hard when frozen it was one you could use cold or hot this one is not used for hot but it works great for cold.
I have a shoulder that responds adversely to heat. Heat makes the pain worse. The should hurt almost every night as I am trying to get to sleep. My cure is to apply one of these ice packs until the should is numb.
Then I can go to sleep and sometimes stay there. The cold packs do not “sweat”, so I don’t have to get up again to remove the ice pack. I gave it a 4 because it would be nice if I could get more cold on the shoulder more quickly.
Two nice things: 1. Nice and large, and after having been in the freezer section, it will conform easily to the part the pack is applied. 2. It stays cold for up to an hour where I live, but I suppose in climates hotter and muggier than Colorado, it may be less, but 15 minutes to 30 minutes is sufficient for each application as those are generally the recommended times.
I don’t like: 1. The pouch that comes with it is smaller than the pack, and for people who have no or partial use of one of their hands and arm, the attachment strap is nearly impossible to use. I use: I use an old t-shirt to hold the pack to me body.
It works well. Nothing fancy but a good improvisation. Rating: I don’t give excellent.

I have had this ice pack for sooo long (20 years?) and I love it. It works well, is comfortable, and easy to use. It came with a white cotton cover that has a strap that wraps around and ends with velcro that attaches to the cover.
Thus you don’t have to worry about keeping it in place. Actually I have 2 of them but gave one cover away. I’m trying to find another cover, but no luck so far.
For thirty years I have used numerous Cold Packs – 2646Peg Cold Pack 4 X 10. I always purchased 2 at a time for use with my scholosis and surgeries. It never seems to fail, I have one cold pack that will work on and on like a trooper.
🙂 Then the other one, within a month or so, will split right in the middle and the blue gel will be all over my sheets or clothing. I would expect that after a couple of years they would wear out, but not a couple of months with being used 4 times.
I no longer can find ANY store in Indianapolis to purchase these and believe me I have searched and called everyone. All the other cold packs on the market do not last even 20 minutes to provide the cold needed.
So, I called you directly to purchase 2 of them. I appreciate you sending me the replacement and I am sending the one that was used 4 times and split in the middle. I have circled with a black market where your product will split, even when it is always laid flat in the freezer and never bent.
Maybe in the future you could thicken the membrane all over or at least in the middle areas. That is my suggestions.
Much better than the average cold packs on the market. Good usable size and the sealed cold pack material is encased in a sturdy 3M pouch. I keep two in the freezer, one to use and the second in case I need further cold treatment.
Use cold therapy for relief from pain. This product contians natural rubber. Directions:Fill ice bag 3/4 full with cubes or crushed ice. Do not crush ice in the bag. Float cubes in water first before placing in bag to prevent sharp edges from cutting rubber.
Twist cap on tightly. Apply to desired area. After Use and Storage: Drain bag and air dry before replacing cap. Store in a cool dry place.

Reviews From Real Customers
I bought this ice bag online and picked it up at my local Walmart in a few days. I have now had it for about a week. During this short time it has proved to be a good as any. Of course, I have no idea how it will hold up over the next few months.
The directions say to soak the ice in a bowl before putting it in the bag to prevent sharp edges inside the bag. I have been putting the ice straight from the ice bin into the bag, running hot water into the bag, sloshing it around, and then pouring the water out.
I hope this will delay the bag leaks which all ice bags seem to eventually develop.
Cold comfort. Relish the relief from this reusable ice and gel cold pack. The innovative gel freezes fast and lasts for hours outside the freezer, while the surrounding sleeve makes wearing the flexible pack comfortable.
An excellent choice for helping to soothe pain and reducing swelling. From Carex.
I have a small tear in my rotary cup. I have to go to physical therapy twice a day and when I do my exercises at home I use this. When this came in I had no idea it was big, but it does the job. I love everything I get from QVC.
I’ve been searching for the right & best ice pack for me. I read about this ice pack and the reviews. I ordered it w/excitement. I could barely wait to receive it. THE 1st night I placed it into the freezer.
WHEN I took out the ice pack, it had wet spots on the pillow case I’d placed it in. I thought it was water. However, it wasn’t water. IT WAS THE GEL INSIDE THE ICE PACK! I GUESS I RECEIVED A DUD! It looks like it is a well made product but on the outer seem where it’s leaking, it is just where it was missed when it was being sealed shut.
There’s no way I can fix this. I’M REALLY BUMMED B/C I’M HOMEBOUND & IN A WHEELCHAIR, SO I’M GOING TO HAVE TO GET SOMEONE TO RETURN IT FOR ME & I’M NOW TRYING ANOTHER BRAND FROM WALMART. COM. Hopefully this time all will be good!.
The product appears to be top quality and i believe it provides relief as presented on show. however the weight of the pack is too heavy for my intended use for someone who is to have shoulder surgery.
i found a lighter weight gel pack at local Walmart store so i will return the two from QVC. I can recommend it to someone for whom the weight is not an issue.
