It stays cold a long time and the way it wraps around really gets to my entire ankle.
I think it is a great product, but it is way to big for my foot. I didn't notice if there were different sizes available when I purchased it. I would buy another one as needed, but only if they have smaller sizes. Overall, a great way to get your entire ankle covered at once.

Exactly what i needed and expected
I have tried other ankle wraps and none are easy to apply and stay on as the Vive product. Also very easy to fold and store in freezer to not take too much soace
Thank you very much for this glowing feedback!! We are happy to have you as a customer.

So very thankful for this product, I have a small tear in the ligament that runs from ankle down side of the foot, this product makes it so easy to get the ice therapy exactly where I need, which help relieve the pain. I highly recommend this product!

Ankle Cold Wrap
The ankle cold wrap was everything I was expecting, nice, snug fit which kept cold for quite a while. I have severe tendonitis in my right ankle from multiple injuries over many years and now that I am older (recently retired) the tendonitis and accompanying pain flairs up from time to time. An ice bag just didn't cover the entire ankle, the Vive Health ankle wrap works like a charm, I even noticed a positive effect a day or two later, no major reoccurance of pain. Glad I purchased and can recommend this product.
