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?
I'm not sure what carrying case you received?? You mean for the meter/remote? I just use the case that came in and toss it in my purse or backpack. I didn't get any carrying case for the Ping, as I wear it all the time. Maybe you are just asking about how to wear it? I use the clip that came with it a lot of the time,(maybe that's what you were talking about) clipping it to pants or skirt waists. At night I sleep in shorts that I clip it to. I do have a spibelt and a tallybelt that I bought, neither of which I use much. I sometimes do use the spibelt under a dress, and sometimes wear shorts underneath which are more secure than clipping to underpants. Some people put it in their bra but that doesn't work at all for me. You just have to experiment with what works best for you.
I should clarify. Not the case for the meter/remote. I received a case that clips on to my belt for the pump and it just doesn't work well for me. Some people have suggested the spibelt because of my job as a Frito Lay sales rep I'm always on the move and looking for some suggestions that would make it a little more comfortable.
Oh, I've actually never heard of a case for the pump! I would think that would add to its bulk! Some people use the "skins" which are thick rubber in pretty colors designed to protect the pump. You should have received a coupon in your box for a free one. Truthfully I bought the different type belts but find that 90% of the time I just use the clip. Try the spibelt and see if you like it. There are two types, one which is just a small pouch with a zipper and one that has a hole to feed the tubing through.
I went to the Animus website store and purchased 3 different options for my son. One for daytime at school, one for sports, and one for bed. He tried them and the one for bed is the one he loves and wears all day and all night. The pump goes in a pouch and it has a strap that is velcro so it stays where he puts it. He wears a tank shirt and puts the pump strap on and then his t-shirt. I think you just have to try different options until you find the one that works for you. Good luck!
What is the purpose of the case? Why not just clip it on? Is it for protection? I ordered the skin for protection and then hated it. My trainer told me I didn't really need it, that the Ping was really built strong. I've since banged it and dropped it several times. If you like the case, you like it, but I'd prefer not to have the added bulk (that's part of why I hated the skin)
those clips suck and are very cheap for my line of work im a stocker and im very physical and move alot and its liable to get banged against it protects mine how the clip never could also theres no bulk its very light
