I wore the OmniPod insulin pump for a few years so never had to worry about where to clip it on my clothing. Since switching back to a tubed pump a few months ago (Medtronic 670G if you were wondering), I’ve had to get used to again finding a place for my pump that is both comfortable and convenient.
Most of the time it’s as easy as keeping it clipped to my pants pockets. But in some situations it’s not that comfortable or convenient keeping it that way. One of those situations is exercising. I usually wear leggings or biking shorts/pants when I exercise and most of those do not contain pockets. I certainly could (and have) just clip it somewhere on the pants but that’s not always comfortable. So when I received an email to try out the newly designed SPIbelt, I was all for it!
SPIbelt isn’t new to me, I’ve heard good things about them. But when I received the new belt, I saw how convenient it is for insulin pump users. There is a reinforced hole that secures the pump tubing through it. This is fabulous. Also it’s big enough to carry other supplies like glucose tabs, a small meter/strips or a Dexcom receiver. Even if you are not having to carry around diabetes supplies it is a great accessory to carry secure headphones, hold a phone, keys, money, ID, etc.
If you haven’t already, I would highly recommend checking it out. The lovely people at SPIbelt have provided a coupon code for my readers for 15% off a SPIbelt: EYESPI. Enjoy!
