These cold packs are durably constructed of three layers: a soft outer, an absorbent middle and an impervious inner plastic bladder. The absorbent layer lessens the patient’s exposure to perspiration from the bladder as the ice melts. The secure plastic clip is completely enclosed within the ice bag, and is securely attached to the bag by a plastic sleeve or “clip-slip.” These features reduce the possibility of skin irritation and the likelihood of the clip falling off and being lost. The conformable opening holds its shape while ice is being added, making the ice bag easier to fill.
