Rated 4 out of 5 by Katrabbit Useful for limited time period
Purchased for low back pain. Works well but when on highest setting, battery doesn't last as long as had hoped. Location of battery controls is awkward.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alaann Great heat if you have back problem
Works better than the sticky wraps for bad back. My hubby didn't think it would get warm enough to help while he works all day. He is really impressed. I ordered him one for Christmas and he loves it so much, had me purchase another one for backup. It is about same price as buying extra battery from the manufactor plus I trust llbean if there is a problem. Thanks llbean for having great products

Rated 4 out of 5 by SuefromCT1 Great back warming beat
Works well, comfortable. Only complaint is that the belt wasn't as long as it said in the description.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SBerwickMainer Wonderful Product !
I bought and have been using the product for over a year. I use it for two reasons, (1) to help decrease lower back pain, year round and (2) to help keep warm outside in the winter during less active activities. Product is far less costly than the disposable products on the market. Belt is very light weight, supportive and comfortable. Battery charges quickly and battery life is better than I expected. Medium setting will provides several hours of both heat and comfort. I like this lumbar belt so much, that also bought the heated version of the Venture Heated Fleece Jacket as well (at LL Beans!).

Rated 4 out of 5 by summergirl77 Just what I've been looking for
I have a herniated disc that is causing a lot of pain in the SI joint and general low back area. I have been using a heating pad to help ease the pain and relax the muscles, but it's not portable. I couldn't believe my luck when I found this heated lumbar belt - it's exactly what I've been looking for! It's not quite as warm as my heating pad, but it's hot enough on the max setting to provide relief. I wear it over a light shirt/pants, but I'm not sure how warm it would be with lots of layers for outdoor activities. It will be perfect for sitting at the computer or driving my car, two activities that are difficult right now. It reminds me of a thermacare wrap, only the temperature gets warmer and it's not disposable. So glad I found this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoeShopper47 Heated Belt
Provides heat when and where I need it. The Max heat is great, provides rapid relief, then switch to low for several hours of comfort. Lightweight and easy to recharge an travel with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by kmcnamara Awesome!
We purchased this item for our son, who is disabled, but loves to hunt, sno-bike, ice fish and participate in other winter activities. He is unable to move around enough to create body warmth and gets cold very easily. He has used this heated lumbar belt, so far, for both ice fishing & ski-biking and says it is AWESOME! His body core stays warm allowing him to stay out in the cold for longer lengths of time. On Friday he went sno-biking with temps @ 2degrees and he was able to ski the full 4 hours and stay warm. He laughed when his instructors told him they were cold and had to switch-out teams in order for him to keep skiing. Before the belt he would have made no more than 1-2 runs down the mountain but with the heated lumbar belt he participated for the full 4 hrs of sno-biking. Would highy recommend to anyone that gets cold outside while trying to enjoy outdoor activities - this heated lumbar belt will make your favorite activities much more enjoyable

Rated 1 out of 5 by seaburst Great fit but heating doesn't seem to work
Loved the fit of the belt. LIght weight so it can be worn for hours. Major problem was that belt heated to only 1 temperature despite indicators for high, medium and low heat. I recharged the battery thinking it was low, but that did not seem to make a difference. I have returned the item in exchange for another one. I'm assuming I had a lemon, but this remains to be seen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GoldenSadie Good, snug fit!
Honestly not sure if i would recommend this product, I'm just not sure myself yet? Received my lumbar heat belt today. I didn't order this product to keep me warm outside during the cold winter months, I ordered it to provide comfort/relief to my lower back from a failed back surgery that has left me with chronic pain and nerve damage.
I charged the battery overnight (10+ hrs.) and I've been wearing the wrap now for an hour on its highest (Max) setting, but its just slightly warm? It feels good, and has a nice snug fit that gives added support to the lower back, (size medium for women weighing under 130). It comes with one small battery that fits into a pouch on the left side, possibly if it had a battery on both sides it would provide more heat?
I tried the battery heated gloves manufactured by this same company and found the same problem, not enough heat. My fingers were ice cold after a short walk. This heat wrap is a great concept with a good fit, but definitely should provide more heat on its "max" setting. If it did I would have given it 5 stars!

Rated 4 out of 5 by CharlesDL Just got it. Works great.
this belt was a purchase for hunting as it can get cold just siting or standing still.
I an an honest 36" and I thought at first it might be too small in M. It is not as it gfoes to about 40 and there is a stretch factor and you wear under everything.
I twisted a muscle in my lower back so I had a great summer use for it also. Lasted all night on Medium setting.
