Water Accessories

I use both of these when playing in the water (except hot tub use..which kills the insulin in the tubing). On left is the Minimed Sport Guard. This works well, but does not allow me to press buttons while using. On right is the Aquapac radio pouch. Found at aquapac.com This works great as I can bolus, suspend or use any other button pressing options needed while swimming.

this particular aquapac model was made for tubing. It is more so made for wired devices such as radio/walkie talkie type devices rather than pumps, but it works for the pump. This aquapac has waterproofed hole for small tubing/wire. When I bought it, it was the only aquapac that was made for a wired device. It's possible the selection has grown by now. I fold up the additional material...basically can be folded in half to accommodate the pump.

How is it that the aquapac doesn't pinch the tubing?
