May not be commercially packed and as pricey as the migraine Ice but works just as well,even better for us Squeak as you walk cheapie's, and the ice is available in your freezer compartment!
I'd go out of my mind trying to use a freezer cold pack or cooler ice pack, they're just too small and don't stay cold long enough to be of any help. Believe me I've tried them all! Sailpappy
P.S. My newest effort is a 5 gallon paint bucket with a Marine Bilge pump hooked to a Marine shower, It requires a 12 volt power sorce,but you can make it as cold as you like by adding ice to the bucket. Works like this. You put about a gallon or two of ice in the bucket on top of the submerged bilge pump, add 2 gallons of water and turn on the pump, the water circulates over the ice to your head then back over the ice, Burrrrrrrr ! it makes me cold just thinking about it. I'm working on a better recovery system (Like a big flared cowling on the top of the bucket), Only draw back is you have to watch where your dripping to make sure it gets back in the bucket--Maybe a larger square pan would work better?
