Comeback Wrap from Telebrands is a large, white elastic bandage you wrap around your midsection that they promise will instantly relieve pain. They state Comeback Wrap will provide cooling compression and support so you can resume your active lifestyle. They add Comeback Wrap is strong but also thin, so wearing it under your clothes will make you look slimmer.
How Comeback Wrap Works
Comeback Wrap looks like a giant white Ace bandage; it is of unknown dimensions, but they state it’s one-size-fits-all and large enough to wrap around a 60” waist. They don’t specifically state what Comeback Wrap is made of, except to say it’s a thermo elastic fabric that will support and keep you cool.
To use Comeback Wrap, put it around your midsection; it appears to have a Velcro-type fastener to keep it in place. Then go about your day, bending, stooping, or even playing sports. They promise your back will be pain-free, and as an added bonus, if you wear under your clothes it will get rid of bulges around the waist.
Comeback Wrap Costs:
$27.98 (listed as $19.99 plus $7.99 S&H). If you would like a second comeback Wrap, you can add it for $7.99 in additional fees at checkout for a total of $35.97 plus applicable taxes.
Comeback Wrap comes with a “100% Satisfaction Guarantee” which translates to your initial $19.99 given back to you if you return it within 30 days – they’ll keep all those shipping/handling fees. In addition, Telebrands requires all returns also include a “detailed” explanation as to why you didn’t like it or they could reject your request.
Bottom Line: Is Comeback Wrap a Scam?
We don’t question that Comeback Wrap is a product that will fit around your waist. But there are a few things that we’ve discovered that we’d like to point out to you:
First, there are many different causes of back pain; some are due to a temporary strain, others are as a result of aging or more serious injuries. But according to the National Institute of Health (NIH) most back pain can be cured with alternating ice/hot compresses, bed rest, and exercises. (Their full lower back pain factsheet is here.)
The NIH does not mention anything about wearing a compression garment; however the hot/cold method is intended to increase blood flow and so does compression wear. Therefore, the compression provided by Comeback Wrap may indeed provide some temporary relief. But as the NIH cautions, you should see a doctor if your back pain continues after 72 hours.
In addition, we should mention that Telebrands currently has an F-rating from the Better Business Bureau for 1752 complaints within the last 3 years (as of November 2014). In August of 2014, the State of New Jersey filed actions against them for violating the Consumer Fraud Act.
