Hi everyone
I'm new to the pump and received the belt carrying case and it doesn't work well for me. I'm hoping you can give me a few suggestions of what case or belt or clip that works the best for you and why?
Thanks

My son uses a runner's neoprene case. It's like a fanny pack, but it is super small and stretches to hold the ping. It goes around your waist - under clothes. He likes it much better than the clip - more secure and doesn't move around when he jumps on the trampoline or wrestles, etc.

I got my daughter a Nathans runners pak at Sports Authority, it comes in many different colors and they cost 20.00 dollars. She wears it all the time and she loves it because she cant feel the bulk of her pump and it's comfortable enough. Look into it and let me know how it goes.

I worked in Emergency Medical Services 25 years ago. I had a belt pouch left over. I got a second one and now keep both my Ping and Dexcom 7+ receiver in Ripoff pouches. I believe if is there model c0-25. Their address for confirmation and identification is PO Box 3270, San Dimas CA, 91776. Check with your local emergency services for ideas. BTW, I face the metal belt clip of the Ping out to work like an auto shock spring.

I have the "PING" and ordered the Free rubber case that was offered when I got my pump as my finger tips are smooth and I have a HARD time grasping most things . I like the rubber case with exceptions as when I try and put inside my shirt pockets or pants pockets it's very difficult . I'm considering ordering the Leather case for it and wondering if anyone has tried it . Thanks Roger

Hi,,, I use a mobile phone pouch/sock that has a lanyard attached. I prefer this as I tend to pull the inset out or get tangled if I try to wear my pump on a belt or clip it to my waist...but it's really a personal choice and I suppose comes down to what activities/work you are doing.
