"Biking with MS"
Yajaira Carrasquel on 1/20/2014 9:51:23 AM
Details: I recently got diagnosed with MS and I am a very active person who lives in a very warm tropical environment. I love to cycle but the MS was making hard, until I got this wrap. It does an amazing at cooling me down and the symptoms that I experienced went down by half. Combined with riding early morning, I don't feel anything and I ride about 30 miles. I'm so happy with the product

"Cooling neck & upper back"
Robert Adam on 11/29/2013 12:23:24 PM
Details: I am very disappointed in the product. I am only interested in using it as an ice pack. However, unlike normal ice gel packs that stay flexible when I leave them in the freezer, your ones go solid as a rock. My frustration is that I can't return the product as I live in Canada. It is the first product I have bought online that I have been dissatisfied with. Note from Polar: Hi Robert, thanks for your feedback.We make two different types of packs because they serve two different needs. ... More details

Details: I love to golf but the heat was making it very difficult, I bought this and was able to play 27 holes without the heat melting me.
Christopher Todd on 8/3/2013 1:49:16 PM
Details: This product looks like it will work well for easy neck and back icing but I found it to be very loose! Hardly staying in place and not keeping my sore muscles cool. There are also many sharp points on the ice packs very uncomfortable. Note from Polar: Hi Christopher, thanks for your feedback. We make two different types of packs because they serve two different needs. Kool Max® packs are for body cooling. These freeze solid so that they will stay frozen for a longer period of time (generall... More details

Details: I have MS and was attending my son's appearance in a musical. The venue had no air conditioning and the temperature was 97. In Chicago with humidity, that feels like 105. I was able to sit through the 2 hour production with the help of this product and fans.

"Kool Max WORKS!!!"
Kathy Miller on 6/10/2013 7:50:09 AM
Details: I am a security guard and spend a lot of time outdoors at night. The temp. can sometimes be 85 degrees F and the humidity 100% at 4AM!!!! I am over 50 and don't tolerate heat well so I purchased the neck and spine wrap last year and was amazed at how much difference it made!!! I just bought one for a friend! My only gripe is the fabric is a little fragile and the velcro strips tear it too easily.

"Update: Use Soft Ice Inserts"
Darby on 2/28/2013 10:29:32 AM
Details: At the recommendation of Polar Products, I tried the Soft Ice inserts with the Neck & Upper Spine Wrap, and it solved every issue I had. The soft ice inserts make the wrap much more comfortable to wear, and it stays cold throughout the 30-minute treatments I do, while not being too cold to be comfortable. It's now the perfect device for icing my neck and upper spine.

"Love this thing."
Darby on 2/14/2013 1:55:44 PM
Details: This ice pack thingy is awesome! It makes it SO much easier to ice my neck and upper back. I only have a couple of minor issues with it. 1) My doctor wanted me to use ice packs that had been in the refrigerator, not the freezer, but when I do that with this ice pack the sleeve it's in keeps me from feeling any relief. I put the thing in the freezer and it's not too cold to wear. 2) You need to make sure you can lay it flat in your freezer. If it's bent and freezes that way it is uncomfortable un... More details
Sharon Shipp on 1/4/2013 10:10:54 PM
Details: Its not too bad. Wish the ice packs were polar soft packs. it is heavy when you have all ice packs frozen because they freeze hard. Note from Polar: Hi Sharon, thanks for your feedback. We make two different types of packs because they serve two different needs. Kool Max® packs are for body cooling. These freeze solid so that they will stay frozen for a longer period of time (generally up to two hours) and offer extended cooling. Soft Ice® packs are for cold therapy for pain relief. They...

Details: I like this hit of ice wear but it rests uncomfortably on my collar bones, which are more pronounced than many. Just another personal problem I guess!

"Huge help for outdoor heat"
Lorraine Hass on 6/12/2012 6:44:48 PM
Details: I deliver mail, and the heat in June in Florida is brutal in the mail truck. I love the Kool Max wrap. I keep it in my lunch cooler with an ice pack that keeps it frozen. When the heat is getting me frazzled I pull it out and put it on. The ice lasts for close to two hours in the 95-100 degree heat in my mail truck. It is a HUGE help to me to get through the day. I am going to get refills to make it last even longer. I would highly recommend this to anyone, and I have. Thank you!!

"Kool Max Collar"
Pam on 1/11/2012 9:04:04 AM
Details: So far I have only needed this once but it's just the beginning of summer. I needed something that wasn't as bulky as a vest. I'm sure that it will be a life saver when it gets hotter.
