1) A few reviewers said it is too cold. I suspect this has a lot to do with individual freezer temps, but mine do get very, very cold. I use this ice wrap over my leggings, and it still is quite cold. I'm used to putting a ziploc back of crushed ice directly on my skin, and this wrap is noticeably colder than that. I do think that depending on freezer temp, this definitely has potential to cause frostbite if the user is not careful.
2) Gel packs falling out or shifting - When the gel packs are warm (room temp), they are quite soft, so i can see how they would shift. Once frozen, though, they keep their shape. The pockets have flaps on both sides, so I have not had any trouble with them falling out.
3) Gel pack being too hard - In my freezer, the gel packs do develop ice crystals in them and get pretty firm. However, they are still pliable, so I'm able to massage them with my hand to get the gel evenly distributed and to shape them as necessary.
4) It is too heavy to move around in - I agree. I have the L/XL size with 4 gel packs, and though I have walked across the room with this on, it's not something I would generally do. I like putting my legs up while icing anyway, so this isn't a problem for me.
One issue I have is that they develop frost on them quickly. I live in a fairly humid climate, and I'm sure any similar product would have the same issue if it were equally cold. The reason this is a problem is that if there is frost on the inside of the wrap, it gets extra cold in that spot, which is uncomfortable and potentially harmful. I solve this by keeping the inside surfaces of the wrap together (not exposed to much air), so when frost develops, it develops on the outside of the wrap.
I give this 4 stars because it works well for me. It gives good 360 coverage around my knee, and I like that it is cold. I'd prefer to add an extra layer between my skin and the ice pack than to have one that is too warm even when directly on my skin.
The biggest issue is that the gel packs are not, and I hope I'm phrasing it right, sewn in or stationary. Unless you fold the wrap properly and put it neatly in the freezer, the rectangular gel packs are going to move around (instead of vertical, you will find them horizontal, or may even be falling out). When removed from the freezer you may need to readjust them.
The second issue is that the gel inside each pack also moves about. If not careful you will find that some areas of the rectangular gel packs are thicker than others. That means you will need to flatten the packs either before or after in order to get an even cold distribution when you put it on. To me this felt like extra work and unnecessary because competitive designs did not have those issues. Being in pain the only thing I wanted to do, when I reached inside the freezer for the wrap, was simply put it on.
I also purchased the 'knee ice pack by A to P total knee wrap' . For my needs, I had total knee replacement surgery, the latter wrap became a better choice because it enabled me to cover a larger area. Shortly after the operation, it felt like most of my leg was swollen and really sensitive. The latter wrap, in addition to the larger coverage, also felt lighter, less heavy, less tighter. Again, I will say that I liked the Shock Doctor Compression Wrap and still use it, but it just was not as good a fit.
I think this wrap would be a better fit for knee injuries that are more localized. It's a quality product, but for someone with total knee replacement it is probably better to look elsewhere. It would work great for someone that just wants to ice their knee after a good workout.
