I like it a lot better than my usual Ziploc bag approach--the EpiPen is better protected and easier to spot in my overloaded handbag.The pouch is made from a light-weight, heavy duty material and it also has an padded thermal silver lining, to protect the medication from heat and cold.
A ring at the back (not pictured in the photo) allows you to clip it to a belt or hang it on a hook. The ring also allows you to attach an identification card (included) and there is room to store a small action plan card.
We recently used this product when my daughter attended a birthday party, and also when we went to visit relatives for the holidays. I like the bright color--easy to spot--and the thermal lining, especially with winter here. My daughter chose not to attach it to her body at the party, since it was a "gymnastics" party, but I still felt like the product would be easy for her to use that way, say, going on a Girl Scout outing or school field trip.
Another food allergy blogger, Jennifer B of Food Allergy Buzz commented on her use of this product recently and she had some good information about it. Click here for her comments.
You can also order a double wide EpiPen carrier, for carrying two Epis at one time, and there are more colors available too.
If you're interested, check the Activeaide website for ordering details. Even though this product arrived from Australia, I got it fairly quickly here in the States.
It's always great to find a new company that helps make allergic living a little bit easier! Let me know if anyone else orders this and what you think of it.
