Ordered two of these to deal with back and stomach pains. Items arrived within 48hrs of placing order, despite using standard delivery service. Fantastic! Item works well, and keeps hot/warm for approx. 15-20 minutes. Would be nice if it remained heated for longer, but that fact it only takes 70-90 seconds to heat up in a microwave means it's not such an inconvenience. Have not tried it cold yet. Price is excellent, other websites charge a lot more. Would definitely recommend to others.
This heats up easily in the microwave and I love that I can strap it around me so I can walk around with it and keep it on my back (where it gets pretty much all its use) unlike a hot water bottle. It doesn't stay hot as long as a hot water bottle, but since it's so easy to whack in the microwave again, this isn't really a bother. I haven't used it as an ice pack yet (I'm a wuss and hate getting cold!)Goes Well With:Sore muscles
Ordered two of these as the size wasnt shown and they didnt look big in the pitcher. They arrived and I was shocked as these are a very good size. Would highly recommend, have only used as cold backs but they do the job.
Can get the ice pack nice and tight on the sore area
I have only used this as a cold pack, but it's amazing. The elasticated velcro strap on it makes it so much easier to use than your average ice pack which you have to try and balance in the correct place and hold to you when you move. Can't believe the high quality compared to the low price either. Would highly recommend.Goes Well With:Injury/muscle soreness/for use to prevent muscle soreness
Items exactly as advertised. Easy to use, and effective. Ordering simple, and delivery very prompt. Ordered many items from My Protein and always been very happy.
Doesn't stay hot long enough for it to be effective...
This eases all the little niggles you get through training hard as an athlete and aids with recovery. Definitely recommend.
Was struggling with a twinge in my lower back. Heat one of these in my mircowave and strap it to my back whilst watching tv, helped ease the pain, cannot fault one bit!
Exactly as described, works perfectly well abs the straps are such a good idea
This is an amazing product. It's much bigger than expected, i thought it would be a wee hand sized item but its a decent size. This is great for using cold when the kids have grazes and bumps, and it's also great used hot for gym injuries, and period pains! Such a versatile product, and the cover is an added bonus. Amazing value for money :)Goes Well With:kids, gym injuries, painful periods.
Loved the quality and the price! Also fast delivery, Thank you Myprotein
Ordered this to help treat an ongoing knee injury. Its cheap and cheerful (i.e. you get what you pay for) but it does the job. It's MUCH more effective than a bag of frozen peas!! My only concern is that the plastic bag containing the gel itself isn't especially thick and I wonder how much flexing it will withstand before the gel leaks (you have to be quite firm with it to flex/bend it round the knee joint for example when its frozen)- time will tell. My gripe however is the hugely wasteful way in which the product was packaged by Myprotein. The gel pack and holder are packed in a very slim cardboard box that could easily be slipped into a padded envelope for damage-free delivery. Instead I was greeted with a large cardboard box in which the slim cardboard box was inserted diagonally, surrounded by completely unnecessary plastic air bags. I'm no eco-warrior, but this sort of thing winds me up, as its totally unnecessary and irresponsible, as the vast majority of plastic packaging ends up in landfill. Myprotein should be taking their environmental responsibilities rather more seriously in my opinion!
I've recently been using this product for my elbows which i have hyper extended and i have got to say this is the best ice pack i've used. I really like how you have to oppurtunity to apply more pressure with minimal effort because of the support you get with the ice pack. Thanks a lot Myprotein. Yet again another great product from you!
Hot gel can leak from this product - potentially dangerous!
perfect nearly, the strap to hold the ice pack is very good, secure, comfortable. But the ice pack is a bit too solid, cant bend it around knee easily. I have to let it thaw a little 1st, well worth buying tho, does the job I need.
Work brilliantly when heated, the steps are brilliant for holding in place (I use around my ankles both hot and cold). Really happy with these. One criticism is one of them burst at 90 seconds in the microwave on the 3rd use.
Had this for a few weeks now, didn't expect it to be as big as it is for the money, used it hot and used it cold doesn't take long to get to the desired temperature that u want it. Easy to wrap around joints with the Velcro sleeve it comes in. Welllllll worth having around for those nggly injuries u can pick up.Goes Well With:A freezer and microwave
I bought this product, not for myself but for my elderly grandmother. Her leg was swollen and she needed a cold compress to strap to her leg as she's not able to elevate her legs due to disability. This is without a doubt the best support I've seen, especially for the price, and has helped her reduce the swelling on her leg. The gel pack and sleeve are much bigger than I imagined (11" x 4.5"), which was great as the area of swelling was quite significant. After seeing how great this product is, I think I'll be buying one for myself to cure my aches and pains after training.Goes Well With:Swelling
I recently bought the hot/cold gel pack as I found that different heat pack I had bought in the pharmacy where awkward and difficult to keep on the sore area. The hot/cold gel is great as it is secured in a soft fabric sleeve with a adjustable Velcro strap. I used this heat pack on my lower back and it stayed in place due to the effectiveness of the Velcro stretch strap. With other heat packs sometimes the heat can become unbearable on the area. With the myprotein pack its inside the sleeve which has breathable holes and makes the pack comfortable and you don't need to take the pack off constantly because it gets to hot like with other heat packs. I would recommend this gel pack for anyone suffering from muscle soreness and want a heat pack that doesn't become unbearable after a few minutes
