Moji Ice Pack Review + Giveaway!

I was sent the Moji Ice Pack to review for my lower back. I have had some lower back pain, that I’ve had my entire life, especially when starting to run longer distances (12+ miles) and I really was interested to see how the product would work out for me. Sometimes I ice my back, but being a harder area to ice, I usually forgo it because of the mess and annoyance it causes me. It seemed to be very well made, and for the price, it should be. I really liked the material and the idea of the fact that it was reusable and I didn’t have to deal with drippy ice bags all over my back or the ‘blue ice’ packs filling up my fridge. Also, since it Velcros around your waist, the added compression is also a benefit that I wasn’t expecting.

I really liked a lot of aspects about the Moji Ice pack. First off, the fact that it has Velcro and you can easily affix the Velcro together really makes icing easy, which I think is one of the main reasons I sometimes skip icing. Also, the cold ‘cell’ that you affix to the inside of the back part of the ice pack really holds the ‘cell’ in place while icing as well. The cell is thin and really holds the coldness for the allotted time that I have it on my back, which is usually 20 minutes.

This is a picture of it on my back. The Velcro is in the front so it stays on nice and tight. They also have a knee option which looks really cool and I wish I could try that out out as well. I could totally see how it would be easy and make icing my knee much more efficient then how I am icing it now, which is just with a plastic bag. You can check out the knee option here, but I would assume that it’s just as well made as the back icing option.

I also felt that the fabric, material and overall product was made REALLY well, I was surprised at it, to be honest. A lot of times stuff for sports and athletics doesn’t seem to be made well and this was a huge exception. It’s not cheaply made and you can really tell with the sewing and the many nice features of the Moji. It seems to be made of super durable material and I wouldn’t be worried about it falling apart or not be worth the price tag, which leads me to the only issues I have with the Moji icing system. It’s a little pricey, but then again, I work for peanuts so I would have to save for probably two months to get the knee icing system. In my mind though, this is TOTALLY worth it. I love it just like I swear by my Zensah goods, which you all know is a LOT!

This is a photo of the back part of the ice pack without the cell attached to the Velcro section. As you can see it has the things that go around your body with the velcro on either side. The velcro on the back part is where you put the ice cell.

Here’s a closeup of the Velcro section that you would affix the ice cell. At first I was skeptical that it would attach and stick on tight for the entire time that I needed it to be on my back, but I was really surprised, it is never a question of not being totally attached.

This is the part of the section that you wrap around your body. You can see the Velcro section that attaches to the other side, I was surprised how strong and easy they stay together as well.

This is the whole back pack wrapped up, how it would be on a real person. In the front it has a little pocket that you can put your hand in to wrap it around easily.

This is the ice cell that you just keep in the freezer. The back of this is the other side of the velcro, so it can attach to the back part of the pack.

Here is the ice cell attached to the back part of the Moji, once you attach it to the Velcro it stays no problem at all.

This is the Moji from t he front when the Velcro is wrapped around and attached. It’s easy to put on and makes icing your back very easy.

This is the back of the Moji like seen above. I really like the size of it and how it covers a large area of my back. Most of the time though I wear a shirt underneath the Moji to make sure that it doesn’t get stuck on my back from the cold.

I totally recommend the Moji Ice pack for icing your back and knees if necessary. I was pleasantly surprised with the overall great quality and ease of use for the product.

    The knee icing system would be great as I train for an upcoming half marathon in May and full marathon in October. My knee bothers me now at low mileage so I can only imagine what it will be like as I start to increase! Great giveaway!

    This is something I would totally use most every day of the week. I figure skate in addition to running, so my lower back has been in pain for years!

    That ice pack looks amazing. Like you, I would use one designed for the knee more often, but still. I’ve taken to filling (super) old soccer socks with ice because they can tie. Ghetto.

    I tried one of the moji knees on at the Rock n Roll expo, and I have wanted one ever since. My IT Band and my fiance’s IT band would be very thankful for a moji knee, and my back could use one too.

    ICE + VELCRO = COOL! I have some smaller ice pads that use a velcro strap to keep them on the desired location, but nothing as cool and well-designed as this!
