Insulin Vests

This is an alternative to the pump case around your waist.  Ideal for under clothes during the day or in bed at night.  A full size pump pocket is sewn into the vest with an opening on the inside and outside.  Tubing runs against the skin, under the vest.  No tubing is on show from the outside to get caught on clothing.  Once normal clothing is put over the top the pump is almost invisible with little chance of it falling out. My son loves his vest, he found the pump case awkward and it hurt his tummy.  100% cotton, plain white only, very comfortable. Ideal for adding transfers to make them personal.
