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 rated 4.2407 out of 5 by 54.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good concept! I have a barrel horse with a tendon injury on the front side of her knee. This wrap makes it easy to apply cold before and after excercise, although it doesn't seem to get very cold, but I guess that's how it works. It's not messy and I wrap a polo wrap around it to help keep it in place and free of dirt.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from So convenient! These wraps are amazing! So convenient and so easy rather than ice boots. I really like these at shows at the fact I can see if a leg has swollen plus they're more practical than lugging ice boots to a show.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arrived without damage before expected. I have a Physical Therapist that recommended this product in for my legs after running. It does the trick. After running the LA Marathon the wraps were a welcome relief. If it's good enough for horses its good enough for me!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great substitute for cold hosing! It does a nice job giving consistent cold compression. It's a great substitute for cold hosing especially during cold winter months. The last one I had lasted way more than 20 uses. Including being kicked off a couple times. The only complaint I have is that it doesn't stick to itself. You have to tuck it in. Also I don't use the sock because dirt washes off super easily and the sock is a hassle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT! I found this product after my horse got kicked in the trailer. I couldn't be happier with it! Easy to use did everything it was supposed to and I have been able to re-use the product many times now. I make sure to keep these wraps in my barn, truck, and trailer, I will never touch an ice pack again :)

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge Disappointment When something seems too good to be true, it probably is. This was the worst horse related purchase I've ever made. Did it cool, yes. Did it stick to its self, yes. Did I use the nice little included sleeve to protect it from horse hair and barn dirt, yes. Did it survive more than 10 minutes, no. I monitored my horse closely for five minutes to make sure it wasn't going to slip or cause problems. Then I turned my back. It disintegrated. I was picking pieces of it out of the straw for thirty minutes. The wrap was shredded. If I could give it zero stars I would. If you're willing to stand there and keep your horse immobilized for twenty minutes, just use real ice and a bucket, it’s cheaper.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Messy and cumbersome. I was hoping for a wrap to cool the tendons after long training rides and endurance rides, without having to haul ice packs around. These wraps were quite cumbersome to use. The sock provided did keep the wrap clean, but it got so caked with the gel after a single use, that I couldn't use it again (even after washing it). I had to put another layer on the outside to keep the dirt off, as the wrap really attracts dirt, hair, and shavings. I didn't really feel a significant cooling effect either.Overall, I don't think this is worth the high cost.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from useful product Horse had pulled some muscles in turnout and figured I'd give this a shot. Being January in Chicago I really wasn't wanting to cold hose him. Product does a great job taking care of swelling,so easy to use and conveinent to use, and is a great price. There were a few things I didn't like abut the product though-Gel gets stuck to the horse and is like glue trying to get it off. Does not stick to itself very well I always have to tuck it into itself to actually make it stay. The sock is a great idea to keep the shavings off of it, but I have a 17.3h horse and getting that over his hoof was a joke.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick and easy icing I was a little hestitant when I first purchased this, but for less than $20, why not? My mare has some issues with her hind legs and I originally got the wrap to help reduce swelling on days she didn't get worked, etc. She ended up pulling a check ligament on a front leg and these came in really handy for daily icing. I prefer refrigerating for maximum chill, but they worked fine when they were at room temperature as well. They held up well and I hit the suggested number of uses plus a couple. I did care for them as the packaging suggested. I did not wet them a whole lot and they did get a tiny bit dry by the end. I have re-ordered the wrap and keep it in my tack trunk.

    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 :)
    Date published: 2012-10-19
    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 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected Tears very easily and was not easily reusable when you had already applied 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.
    Date published: 2011-06-06
    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.
    Date published: 2011-04-11
    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.
