Hi! I need a waist case to carry my suppies in while I'm walking like my meter, glucose tablets, cell phone and I'm getting a pump real soon so that should fit too. I do dog boarding which requires alot of walking:) I like the Spibelt but I don't know if it will be big enough?

Hi Leanna...I have a Spibelt that I use to carry my pump around on a daily basis. I absolutely love it. As for your purposes, I'm not sure that it would hold all of the things you want it to hold. However, I see on their website that they have a dual pocket version that I'm sure would hold what you need :) Good luck and I hope it works out for you!
Thank you!! I think I will probably go with a small fanny pack. Should hold plenty and you can easily find nice ones.
I use the old fashioned fanny pack , which I purchased from Avon some time ago ...a Curves product ..a pocket for a bottle of water, a velcro'd compartment, a larger zippered and a smaller zippered compartment ...washable , waistband adjustable . Don't forget to carry ID ,lancet ....your pump most likely will sit on your waistband . and how about water and bowl for doggies ?? I googled Spibelt ...does not seem too roomy for stuff I carry . Have fun walking the dogs :-)
Thank you nel! My top choice is a fanny pack so I prob will do that. I will have fun with the dogs!
Bring back the fanny pack!!
LOL! Think thats what I'll do!!
Thanks again Dave!
Thanks Ryan!
I use an Ultimate Torsopack that has one water bottle, too. You can find those at hiking stores. I found mine at a cross country ski shop--it carries all I need!
anyone know where to get a "trendy" fanny pack?? this is one of the reasons that keeps me from going on walks outside (i usually go to the gym) is that i have to lug my whole purse to carry everything or i have both hands full of stuff. it is truly annoying. i haven't checked into any sites that have been suggested but i'm going to!! thanks!!
coach maybe?
they are too expensive haha
