Reviewing Dr. Cool

You know about my pesky hip if you have been following my blog. About a month ago I was thinking it would be cool to have a ice pack I could just tie onto me and wear when my hip is having a tough day to keep things chilly happy. Life is funny! The next day Dr. Cool stepped into my life and offered a wrap for me to check out. Needless to say, I accepted otherwise I wouldn't be writing this post today.

I opted for the large wrap (in pink) and they tossed in a to-go cooler to keep things chilly when I brought my wrap to work. I loved the wrap but hey, pink makes me instantly happy.

To use the wrap you need to wet it, roll it, and freeze it for 20 minutes or so. I found I needed to chill mine a bit longer to get it icy throughout and if you keep it in the freezer it gets crunchy and harder to unroll but it is doable. Yep, I tried everything with this wrap.

Next, trying it on. The large is large! I do realize I am a smaller person so I had plenty of extra wrap to wrap around so this wrap will work on larger frames, shoulders, etc. My one worry was, if I got this wet and froze it, wouldn't it defrost and leave me drippy wet? Well, I wasn't drippy per se but darling daughter got a good laugh after my first try and had a wet patch on my yoga pants and shirt that were under the wrap. I know in the pictures they show it on bare skin but I stick to the rule that you don't put ice packs on bare skin but perhaps since this coolness is short it is okay. I don't know.

Did I use it again? Yes! It works and it is nice to wrap up and being chilling during chores and when I am at home I can take care of wet patches. I just don't see me using it at work unless I pop in on post-run, do some work in running clothes, and then change into my work attire. This is possible since I do often run before work.
