Important Information

Safety Warning

Read instructions carefully

Special Precautionary Notice

It has come to our attention that Hottie thermal packs are being damaged by use in the small chamber microwave ovens that are now on the market. The damage appears as holes of melted plastic in one or more corners of the plastic pouch. This may occur on the first time of use, and may therefore easily be mistaken for a manufacturing defect.

The damage occurs when the Hottie thermal pack is unable to rotate freely. The pack does not need to become trapped to cause this damage, which may in some cases result from a very short interruption to rotation.

If your microwave oven is small--17 litre or less--or your turntable is less than 25 cm diameter or rotation of the pack is impeded in any way, you should not use that microwave to heat your Hottie in the normal way.

It is possible to gently roll your thermal pack and secure with an elastic band. Some customers have found this satisfactory in smaller microwaves.

From March 1st 2011, we will no longer replace free of charge thermal packs which show this type of damage. We thank the many loyal customers whose feedback has helped us identify the cause of this problem.

We are working to produce a thermal pack which will both fit smaller microwave ovens and maintain the high standards of warmth, comfort and safety our customers have come to expect from Hotties.

Warning: Do not overheat. Warming this product to high temperatures beyond instructions can lead to the leakage of hot and hazardous liquid.

If your microwave oven has a capacity of 17 litres or smaller, with a chamber dimension width that prevents the Hottie rotating freely, this product will not be suitable.

NOTE:The item should only be heated as per the instructions.

I got one of these, as I have 2 disks out in my lower back.

I have never been able to get comfy with a hot water bottle (that hard neck!) and was always afraid of leaning back on the squishy bit (and gettling skalding water over me).

I had tried the wheat bags you get now, but they are awkward to use unless you lie on your face and put it on your back, and too hard to sit back against.

This product contains 'water absorbed on to a medical grade nonwoven pad' and is a lot softer than a wheat bag, and is flat enough to be able to put behind your back when you're sitting.

The only drawback of the product is that it is not designed for fatties like me. The flaps that are supposed to fold around your waist to close at the front are far too short. As a compromise, there is a piece of elastic with a bit of velcro at each end to use as an extender.

Unfortunately, with my disks out so low I wanted to put it around my hips, but no hope!

I've done a rough measure, and the flaps will do if you have 38" (95cm) waist or less, and the elastic will give an extra couple of inches (5 cm) to play with.

So if you're within the waist range this is a superb product. If you're not I would recommend their microwave hot water bottle instead, as I find the heat pad a lot more comfortable than water filled bottles or wheat.

I have had my Hotties backwrap for a couple of weeks now and I have to say it is simply wonderful for easing my lower back pain. I spend a lot of time on the computer at work, and my back loves the comfort this gives. It gives a nice feeling of support as well. I wear it in the car too for driving on longer journeys, which is great.

If you are worried about whether it will fit around you, I am an M&S size 16 and it fits me absolutely fine with some room to spare.

I wouldn't be without mine!

The item description gives no detail on what waist sizes this is suitable for, which would have very useful. The description says "The Hottie backwrap features an elasticated touch fastening belt in a red tartan insulating fabric to ensure an effective and comfortable fit for almost all sizes" I am a size 20 round the waist being an apple shape, which I know is large but I assumed that "almost all sizes" would include a size 20. However the wrap does not come anywhere near meeting at the ends, let alone overlapping so the velcro would work. Given that it needs to overlap to fasten I would say it would not fit a size 18 either, so I would only recommend this item for anyone size 16 or lower. Which in my opinion is not "almost all sizes".

I have been suffering from lower back pain for years and I am sitting in an office every day. So this little wrap was a Godsent for me. I wear it at work in the office, but I also wear it when working in the garden. And thanks to the constant heat my muscles soften so much that for the first time in over 2-3 year I could actually bend down properly and pick up things off the ground.In this very cold winter it also had the benefit of keeping me overall a lot warmer when outside. I love my heat wrap and wouldn't want to be without it. I have already recommended it to all my other bad back friends. Worth every penny!

I purchased this backwrap for my 81 year old mum who suffers from a bad back. She found it easy to warm in the microwave and the tartan fabric nice and soft. The only problem is that she has bad balance and is very weak, when she was wearing the belt she felt as if it was pushing her forward and she found it very heavy. Personally I find it ok but would probably take a while to get used to walking around in as it does feel bulky when you first start wearing it.
Overall I would say that it keeps warm for 2-3 hours maximum but as it is so easy to reheat not a problem. It is comfortable to wear when sitting down and once you get used to the feel of it, it is ok to walk around in it. Much safer for the elderly than hot water bottles.
The only negative I have found with it is that the instructions and heating times are on the heat pad itself and within a week of using it they have rubbed off.

Helpful and easy to use. However, best to use at home is as is too bulky to been worn under clothes when out at work or social activities.

Brought this as a gift but have now used it myself. I have been doing decorating/painting/carpet cleaning on my week off work and my back as ceased up causing agonising lower back pain. Have been doing gently exercise and slowly stretching/lower back but its will take a week or two before my back is right. Soooo i decided to try the Backwrap.....ooooh how soothing and wonderful it is. Doesnt stop the pain or make the ceased up back get better any quicker BUT it certainly comforts the pain/eases the intensity. And its so easy to use .....in my case its 2mins in the microwave then pop the heat pack into the wrap - then wrap it around my back and attach it with the Velcro straps - and away you go!! Stays warm for ages - over 1hr in my case (so far anyway)
I have now just ordered another Backwrap for my sister. I would defin recommend it for anyone who had on going back pain (as well as short term like myself) BARGAIN!!!
