After game or practice
My son is a Varsity relief and at times a closing pitcher. Even if he isn't forced to throw a lot of pitches, this product has relieved him of any post-game or bull pen session pain from the forearm up through the shoulder areas. Best thing is is that he can wear it while doing homework and the majority of the time with weekday games, homework has to be completed afterwards. One thing I want to mention is IF your freezer setting is set too low you will notice less flexibility with the ice packs. I never paid attention to my freezer setting prior to owning this and who really does? But changing the setting from 3 to 5, bringing the temp up slightly, made a difference. Before doing this our son had to remove from the freezer and let it sit at room temperature for about 15 minutes so that it would be flexible and comfortable enough to wrap around his arm and shoulder.
We just keep it in the freezer and it is always ready to use. It is compact and stays cold for a long time.

My son is 10 and he's smaller than average. I got him the adult size based on other reviews. Its perfect. I see no reason to make the youth size. It packs his shoulder and elbow perfectly. We freeze overnight, throw it in a cooler with ice packs the morning of a tournament, and its still cold at the end of the day. He wraps for 20 minutes on the drive home. Just what we were looking for.

My son said this model is not nearly as comfortable is the older model he used for years until it no longer held a freeze (ie water evaporated). There is a ridge on the shoulder flap that does not fit well and the frozen cells come in direct contact with the skin as there is mesh liner.
My daughter is a pitcher and she uses this after every game and practice. It is nice because it covers all of the areas that can get sore after a lot of pitching. She can ice and still have use of her arm and hand. Only problem I have is trying to find a way to keep it frozen during 90 degree tournaments!
I was really excited to get this because I figured it would make icing after throwing a lot more convenient. It did, but there are a few things that aren't the best about it. First, it is pretty difficult to attach to yourself if you're alone. However if you are with another person it's easy. Second, it doesn't effectively ice some parts of your arm. It wraps around your elbow very well, but it fails to cover a lot of your shoulder. I found that can only really ice the top of your shoulder near your collarbone, or your very upper arm, but never both at the same time. Overall, pretty good product.
My son uses it every time he pitches and loves it!
My son is an avid baseball and we wanted to find a solution to our "icing" problem after he pitches. We needed a ice pack that fit well, covered all effected areas, and stayed cold for 20 minutes at a time. This provided all of that...plus it is useful to pack it in a cooler and have him wear it on the way home. That way, when we get home he can shower and eat dinner and not take the time to ice once we get there!
We use this product after every game my boys throw. Very easly to put on and take off. Nothing negative to say about it.
