"Take a look at tummietote 2 from tallygear. Will fit snug under shirt no problem with tubing hanging out. Easy to access, plenty of room for keys, gels, id/cards etc. Use it pretty much 24/7 and is comfortable. Use it while hiking camping, ziplining…"

"Spi belt works great, I can keep the Tslim and all the tubing inside my Jersey/shorts, nothing can catch on branches or bike. I also use contact detach infusion sets, they have a separate adhesive pad from the insertion site, so any time the tubing…"

"The SPIbelt is fantastic, both for athletic stuff and in general, because it's independent of your clothes, e.g. if you want to drop your pants to go to the bathroom, the belt just stays around your waist. I road bike a lot, and I just wear the…"

What to do with pump while mountain biking?

Hi everyone,I just got my first insulin pump, a T:Slim, and so far, so good! I do a lot of mountain biking and am curious about where others keep their pump while riding? I'm concerned about catching the tubing on something while riding, and potentially tearing the infusion set out. I wear baggy shorts while riding, so was thinking of keeping it in a zippered side pocket, but am looking for any suggestions! Thanks!See More

"I have never had mine break. I keep it in a Tallygear cover which completely covers it and I wear it on a Spibelt."

Nell replied to Adam Thompson's discussion 'Dexcom G4 keeps breaking'
"The obvious caution is to keep it in a lint free pocket. May even want to put some tape over the opening & replace as needed. I have had 2 Dexes, both via insurance, and have not had a slot cover break (knock on wood). I do have a cover on Dex…"

Dexcom G4 keeps breaking

Has anyone else had problems with their Dexcom G4 CGM, where the plastic tab on the side where the USB is breaking? I have broken 3 of them. When the tab breaks, the cover no longer stays in place, which then cannot keep dust and contaminants out of the device.Before anyone says that I'm too rough on my meters, I am not. I keep it in my front pocket, don't drop it, and generally take very good care of it. When I spoke to technical support today, I asked the woman if she has seen many CGMs break…See More
