A very effective, low-tech product
Reviewed in the United States on
I bought the Ohuhu three-pack about six months ago to use on an arthritic knee. Now I've had that knee replaced and am using the packs daily to combat swelling and pain. The bags are well-constructed and sturdy. I have had no problem with leaks and there is no condensation on the outside of the bag. The wide mouth makes it very easy to fill the bag with ice.
I'm pleased with how long the ice lasts. For example, I fill a bag at bedtime and use it several times overnight. When not in use, I put it in a small picnic cooler by the bed. There is always quite a bit of ice left and the bag is still properly cold when morning comes. This is much better performance than many of the high-tech cold pads that I use.
The bag is also good for travel, weighing much less than a chemical cold pack. Plus, every hotel has an ice machine down the hall, while it's inconvenient to chill a cold pack before use.
The elastic strap is fine, but does not have velcro so easily slides off if not carefully tied. Plus, the bag has to be empty when installing the strap. A detail I often forget.
Bottom line: this product is an effective, high-quality update of the traditional ice pack.
