As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

ColdFlex Vet Wrap is an innovative self-cooling compression bandage.

No pre-planning necessary- bandage cools by evaporation and does not require refrigeration! Exclusive formulation of gelled water embedded into an elastic foam material supports and compresses while providing deep, penetrating cold therapy. Cooling effect of ColdFlex Vet Wrap can last for several hours after wrap removal with no danger of tissue damage from excessive cold. Flexible and conforming, ColdFlex Vet Wrap will not cause undesirable pressure.

COLDFLEX® is reusable up to 25 times, making it extremely cost effective and can be easily cut to size. Bio-degradable, non-toxic, and non-irritating. 3" X 72". See Full Product Details tab below for additional photos.

Note: Bandage is not meant to be extremely cold and may even feel warm to the touch as the heat from the injury passes thru it. Although refrigeration is not necessary, you may refrigerate for deeper more penetrating effect. Do Not Freeze.

Each Coldflex Vet Wrap comes with one cotton sock that you can use between your horse's leg and the ColdFlex Wrap or over the ColdFlex Wrap to keep it free of bedding, hay, etc. If you would like a barrier between the ColdFlex Wrap and your horse's leg as well as over the ColdFlex Wrap, you can use thin, cotton gauze (such as in a first aid kit) in place of the Coldflex protective sock. It is important that any material used in place of the ColdFlex Sock must be very thin and made of cotton, so Coldflex can breath and evaporate. A thick or non-breathable material, such as polyester, will stop Coldflex from functioning and hold the heat in.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome wrap I bought this wrap for my horse to ease swelling from getting caught up in a fence, it worked great! And I love that it is reusable :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great for reducing swelling/heat and awesome for hard to wrap areas ie knees, hocks. Yes, they don't last forever, but for the convenience and price (personally, I do not believe it is overpriced for a "disposable" item) - still a great purchase!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works I bought these to use on my 27 year old gelding who battles with laminitis. He has wood shoes that keep him comfortable but they can not get wet so when it gets really hot and he has a little laminitis flare up I can't run cold water on his legs so I wrapped them with the ColdFlex wraps and they worked great! Kept his legs nice and cold easing his laminitis without getting his wood shoes wet.They are super easy to use and I keep them in the fridge for extra cold.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Falling apart I purchased several of these hoping they would work well for a suspensory injury. I think the idea is fabulous but they do not hold up. Even using the sock they get very dirty and can't be cleaned. They start falling apart after about 8 uses. They are too expensive to last only a week.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waste of Money My friend bought this for me, and I used it on my horse's fetlock. Admittedly the swelling did go down, but as I was taking it off it completely crumbled into multiple pieces causing me to have to throw it out versus use it again. I wouldn't recommend buying it, $20 for a one time thing isn't worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat product I keep a pair of these in the fridge and use it on my son's little roping gelding. He has a tendancy to swell from time to time. They are very handy & are reusable. They don't stay cold as long as I'd hoped but I think they work well to take the initial heat out. I'm happy with them :)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great & it's easy to use I train Thoroughbred racehorses and we stand a lot of them in ice boots. We have a few that just don't like them and stomp them down all the time. I saw the ColdFlex Vet Wrap and figured it was worth a try. Wow - they fit great on the legs, and our "fussy" horses didn't mind it a bit. No stomping and great results. I went back and bought more. I would certainly recommend this product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from helps I got this cold wrap because back in Dec. my horse hurt her leg and it was too cold to cold hose it. It did help some, i found that it helped more if i put the wrap in the fridge for a few hours before useing it. the wrap itself will not feel very cold to the touch, but it does help pull some of the heat and swelling out of the leg. it does take a few hours of being on the leg for it to work. I still feel good old fashion cold hosing is the best way to go however if your in a pinch, no hose or too cold to use a hose this product is good to have on hand for those times. it really is reusable as well witch i really liked.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from not as expected sticky and leaves a residue that I suspect increased swelling on the hind legs after work. I don't feel as if it got cold enough for long enough.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value The only problem I've had is that I can't really get it to stick to itself like it says it should, to secure it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. This is a real time saver. It works to cool the leg and is easy to apply. I did find that it does not maintain the cool temperature for a very long time. My horse does not have a great deal of heat in his leg and the wrap gets warm after about 15-20 minutes. This is enough time for his injury but might not be enough for others.I have reused the wrap and it worked good after 3 applications if I did not freeze it and kept sealed to maintain the moisture.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this product a few weeks ago and used it for the first time today. I have to say, it is worth the buy!! The second I took it out of the bags, it was cold... it adhered to it's self almost better then vet wrap! It stayed in place without a problem and did it's job. I will be buying a lot more of this product!! It is a life saver if your in the trailer, on the trail, or can't use ice packs. Highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Technology! I just got these and tried them for the first time after a cross country run at a horse trial and WOW! So easy to use! I left them on for about an hour and after removing, legs were cold and tight with practically no effort. I love these things -- no bulky, irritating ice, no messy poultices. I wish they were not quite so expensive for product with a short life span, but they are definitely worth it and I will be buying more!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Have for Shows! I love this product! It is fast and easy to use. Especially great for horse shows or when water is not available for cold hosing. Extremely convenient and very effective for reducing swelling after a hard workout. My horses actually like coldflex vet wrap better than cold hosing! I keep one in my trailer and one at the barn!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Very Cold This is a great idea, I just wish it worked better. The wrap is cold when you take it out of the container, but within a few minutes after applying, it gets warm. I have been using it on a horse with sore heels and after leaving it on for 20-30 minutes, the area is still warm when I take it off. It definitely does not have the same effect as ice or cold hosing. Also it tears easily if you pull it too hard while wrapping.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING LEG WRAP-Tendon Saver The coolflex wraps are fantastic and I advise getting the warmblood size even if you have any horse because you can cut them to be any size you want or need so get more for less price if you buy more then one !!! They are an excellent make and help a lot to keep horses cool and sound. The only problem I found is that they can rip but past that they are amazing and even if they do rip you can use both sides again cause they can be useful at any size. I LOVE this product and suggest others buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best wrap ever! this wrap is fantastic! for first-timers it will feel wierd, but it is working the way it is supposed to! Don't worry! Horses love it and can't get enough, I put it on my horses legs when they have sprains or select injuries. I am convinced that it helps the healing process.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Results These wraps worked great. My horse pulled a muscle near his tendon on both front legs. I cut the wraps in half and used them both at the same time. The swelling went down almost instantly and he's sound again!The only down side was the slimy gel from the wraps drying on my horses legs after I took them off, I had to scrub it off sometimes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Injury Lifesaver! I have been struggling to keep minor swelling down with my horse for a while. She had a minor suspensory strain a year ago, and could only be jumped once a week to allow for natural swelling reduction. Now I use this wrap for 15 minutes after riding, while I am brushing her, and keep her wrapped in stall. The swelling has completely disappeared! This is a lifesaver product, and I have recommended it to several people at our barn.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice wrap I like that I can put this wrap on my horse immediately after a ride and leave it on her while I'm cooling her down. I ALWAYS ice her leg, but usually have to wait until I'm done hosing so I don't melt the ice. This wrap provided me with a solution. I put it on during hosing and cool-down, then when she's done she gets her ice boot. I'm not sure how cold it actually gets, but it's at least cool. And I have to tuck it into itself to keep it on, cuz it doesn't really stick to itself that well. Hard to roll it back up and keep it clean cuz it's so slippery. But I'm glad I bought it and I'm sure I'll buy again when this one wears out.
