"Love the skin tac! My daughter uses it every time she changes her sensor. She is a competitive swimmer and between the hype fix around the sensor and the skin tac we have never had an issue. We do change the hype fix when it starts to look ugly! lol"

"I bought a 'Garmin' case from Office Max for about $20. It is padded and roomy...large enough on the other side for an Iphone. "

"If I leave home for more than 1 hour, I take an extra Bag with me. The DS case fits in it and I can put i Insuline a Pod, and other stuff. Enough for a day. The DS case is used because it is protective and small."

"Interesting. We've been looking for alternatives for the PDM case as well. The DS Lite case looks useful. However, I've found Daniel usually needs to carry an extra backup pod and insulin with him - and the DS Lite doesn't seem to…"

"The new PDM has the same format. Only the colour is now black and of course the functionality has changed (improved). For storing the PDM I use now a Case for a Nintendo DS/NDS lite. (EBay less than $5.00) Available in different colours. It gives…"

"Analeight, I would with for the new Omnipods. It is difficult to predict how different PDMs will be. I am quite sure we should know more withing a few months, then the case situation may change."

Omnipod Covers

Hello! I was wondering if there was any fun cases or covers for the PDM or Pod??? I've been looking around but I can't find anything. I have a pink PDM case from omnipod, but there's nothing really fun out there for a 14 year old girl. Thanks! -AnaleighSee More

MLH replied to MLH's discussion 'Keeping Omnipod adhered to skin' in the group OmniPod Users
"Thanks again for your help. We've been putting the skin tac on the pod instead of her skin and it works like a charm, with less mess. Also using wider pieces of tape to hold it down. So far so good! We still change every two days as well.…"
