I got four of the therapy packs on here and I am in love with them. So far, we have used them for muscle strains/aches, headaches and simply to cool down (Laugh away, southern friends, but this many days of 90+ degree weather can be rough on us Minnesotans!).
As the package says, these take about 2 hrs to fully freeze. After three solid hours on my forehead, with a towel between the compress and my head, the compress was still cool enough to provide relief. On average, these seem to stay cold 4-5 hours. The beads inside did not freeze together but did provide enough structure that it was easy to get the pack situated where and how we wanted and be confident it would hold its shape without the rigidity of other compresses. The velcro strap kept the compress in place nicely, as well, although an average adult may want to supplement with an additional length of velcro to ensure a comfortable fit.
The price was good, the product is sturdy, as advertised and beneficial. I know we (and our son's soccer team!) will be using these for years ahead.
Hope this helps! :-)
