Rated 3 out of 5 by Peridot8 Strong rubber smell and uncomfortable
The cover is extremely soft, and it holds the heat well. However, the rubber smell is very unpleasant, and it does not sit comfortably on the neck as the edge is not curved, so you really feel it nudging in.

Rated 1 out of 5 by switchback Warm but too weighty for me
I so wanted to love this product to help with neck stress and tension. The fleece is so soft and the warmth is comforting but I cannot stand to have it resting on my shoulders for any length of time due to its heaviness. You can reduce the amount of water poured in but then it doesn't keep very warm and moves round. A latex model would be better to reduce the weight.
Sadly, therefore, I am returning it for a refund which is costly on the P & P.

Rated 5 out of 5 by What Ideal for this cold weather
I already have a vagabond hot water bottle which I love so decided to try this neck bottle as I suffer with a stiff shoulders and neck problem due to work, which is not helped by this cold weather. What a wonderful product, the cover is so soft and the shape of the bottle just right to sit on the top of my shoulders, I can even walk about with it on. It could be fiddly for someone not very dexterous when filling, but I have no problem. Love it, thank you vagabond and qvc.

I have been suffering from a stiff and painful shoulder for a couple of weeks. I had been using a wheat bag for relief, but they only stay warm for a very short period. Saw this and jumped to the phone. This neck bottle is absolute bliss, it stays warm for ages I've had it on my neck now for 3hrs and it's still warm and comforting! It did smell slightly of rubber on first use but since then no smell at all so don't let that put you off! I agree with the previous reviewer about the difficulty of filling if someone is really frail but I have no problem. I've just received the traditional water bottle with the dog picture it's really cute. Can't wait to warm my bed tonight.

Rated 2 out of 5 by abergele Awkward to fill
I bought this for an elderly relative but decided to check it out first. It was difficult to fold back the cover to expose the filler and then hard to pour in the water. The relative would not have enough dexterity to use it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by nicknamefree good idea but with problems
As a hot water bottle for a neck it's a really good design, and was soothing for a long time which is something I don't get from my wheat bag. BUT it has a chemical smell to the product and as the heat made the smell stronger I sent it back after it made all my clothes smell too. An hour is a long time to sit with such a smell which I could only get out by washing my robe. I have again decided to return the replacement as before I even opened the box I could smell it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Snowbunni Relief for stiff painful neck and shoulders
This really is a must have item for stiff, painful neck/shoulders. The cover is beautifully plush and soft, it fits the neck snugly and sits comfortably and securely on the top of the shoulder so you are able to walk around without it slipping about and it doesn't look ridiculous!! Fantastic product
