I have been buying this for years, both for myself and family/friends. It stays warm for a very long time after heating in microwave. It feels fabulous on sore joints/muscles or just to put under your shoulders in bed at night for relaxing. I have been able to use mine for long lengths of time before replacing and I myself have never had one leak unless I left it in the microwave for too long of an amount of time.
Feels true to length
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This pad heats well and stays hot for a long time. It's flexible and comfortable. The only flaw I could find is that after heating it in the microwave a few times, as directed, the plastic warped and it began to leak. As an inexpensive heating pad, it works well, but not forever.
