I want to love this. I love the strap and how soft it is when both hot and cold. However, when heating, it doesn't hold the heat for as long as others and when I microwaved mine it caused a hole to form. Vive Health had great customer service and replaced it quickly so hopefully my new one is better. I wish I didn't have to microwave in 20 second intervals over and over to get it hot. When it is actually hot and on my body I have no complaints. But I still do like it a lot and would overall recommend.
