arctic easeArctic Ease Wrap 

This innovative iceless cold and compression therapy wrap from Arctic Ease is the perfect gift for any college kid with an active life, from varsity athletes (Arctic Ease is an official IRONMAN partner) to casual exercisers and students dealing with everyday aches and pains. Arctic Ease instant cold wraps provide relief from pain and swelling without the inconvenience and discomfort of ice or frozen gel packs. The wraps are reusable and require no refrigeration, plus they eliminate the mess of melting ice packs – and there’s probably plenty of mess already in those dorm rooms. With Arctic Ease, there’s no need to put your life on hold – simply wrap the area that’s bothering you and you can remain active for hours while you heal.

Arctic Ease Wraps come in two different sizes—the full size which retails for $14.99 and the small joints wrap which retails for just $9.99. They also come in four different colors so college students can match their school colors. Arctic Ease products are currently available at CVS, The Vitamin Shoppe and online.
