NO QUESTIONS ASKED
If you don't love your Icekap for any reason, contact us within 60 days for a no-questions-asked refund.
If you've ordered a size that doesn't fit, we're more than happy to do a size exchange or full refund. We'll cover the cost of a size exchange, but we will have to ask you to cover the shipping.
But you should be able to avoid all that hassle by following these steps:
- Follow our sizing guide to find out the size you'll likely need. We recommend measuring a few times, just to be sure.
- If you find your measurement "between sizes," round up. You can tighten a larger Cool Cap to fit your head, but you can't make a small one any looser.

"I was tired of losing my life to migraines."
I've been a migraine sufferer for most of my life, and fellow sufferers know that it's completely debilitating — and the side effects of most medications, if they help at all, can be a turn-off for many. I was tired of cheap "ice sleeves" that stayed cold for a few minutes — not long enough to provide real relief.
I decided to build the very best headache relief hat possible — but I had no idea that it would later be trusted by pro athletes, doctors, practitioners, and everyday people who use it for recovery, relaxation, and relief.Buy Now

What are people saying about the Icekap® Cool Cap?
Frequently Asked Questions
Which size should I pick?+-
To work best, your Icekap® Cool Cap needs to fit snugly on your head. We offer the cap in 4 sizes. Choosing the right one is easy. You just need to measure your head’s circumference.
To find your size, take a soft tape measure and wrap it around your head at the level where a hat would sit. You’ll want to measure the largest possible distance — so when in doubt, measure it again and take the larger number. (Round up if you’re between inches.)
Don’t have a measuring tape? Just wrap a string around your head, and then use a ruler to measure the string.
How does Icekap work?+-
Cold temperatures have been used for centuries to soothe headache, inflammation, and general pain. Blood vessels constrict when they’re exposed to cold, which can help reduce the transmission of pain signals.
Keep your Cool Cap in the freezer (in a freezer bag, if you have one), and whenever you need relief, just take it out and put it on your head. Take a moment to tighten the straps to your desired level of compression, and then you’ll feel the relief begin to wash over you.
How is Icekap different from other cold compression caps?+-
We designed the Cool Cap to deliver cold therapy that’s:
- Longer-lasting, with medical-grade gel packs that stay cold for much longer than your average ice pack or cooling cap.
- Targeted to problem areas, with 5 cooling zones, placed exactly where they need to be to deliver maximum relief.
- Combined with compression, which also helps with headache relief. Your Cool Cap comes with adjustable straps so you can decide the exact level of tightness that works best for you..
What is cold therapy?+-
Cold therapy is the practice of exposing the body to very cold temperatures to activate the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate itself. Cold has been used for centuries to soothe headaches, inflammation, and pain. Blood vessels constrict when they’re exposed to cold, which can help reduce the transmission of pain signals.
What makes a gel pack "medical grade?"+-
Medical-grade gel packs are manufactured to the highest standards, and are designed to stay cold for much longer than a conventional ice pack — remaining below room temperature for 2-3 hours, on average, compared to less than 30 minutes for consumer-grade packs.. Medical-grade packs are also much more durable, and stay soft and malleable when cold — so they can perfectly conform to your head or body.
How long does Icekap need to be in the freezer for?+-
If you start from room temperature, your packs should be cool enough to use after about 4 hours in the freezer. But because they’re medical-grade packs, they’ll continue to get colder for up to 24 hours — at which point they’ll be colder and last longer than your average ice pack.
If you prefer, you can buy a second set of gel packs so you always have some in the freezer even when you're wearing your Icekap Cool Cap.
Can I use Icekap for warmth therapy?+-
You certainly can! Some people find relief from applying warm compresses to their head, and you can do that with your Cool Cap. Just take the gel packs out of the cap and microwave them in 10-second increments, or submerge them in warm water. But be careful, as the packs can get very hot if overheated.
What parts of the head does Icekap target?+-
Your Cool Cap has 5 pockets for gel packs: 1 across the forehead, 2 on the temples, 1 across the back of the neck, 1 on the top frontal region of your head. We designed it this way because these are the most common regions that headache sufferers experience pain.
If you’re only looking to soothe specific regions, just remove the packs from the pockets where you don’t want the cold temperatures.
Can I use Icekap for a head injury?+-
You should definitely consult with your doctor first if you believe you have a head injury. But head cooling has been shown in studies to reduce inflammation and support recovery*, so Icekap is definitely something that could help.

Can you remove the gel packs?+-
Yes! Each gel pack can be removed whenever you need to like when you need to machine-wash your Cool Cap, or when you want to use the ice-cold packs separately to provide targeted relief.
If you’re using your Icekap Cool Cap a lot, you might want to invest in a second set of gel packs so you always have an ice-cold set ready to go.
