You don't have to be a Lantus user Fox it'll hold most any pen I'd say. Has places for 2 pens, needle tips and another little netted compartment.

Okay I found a good one -- $50.00 later. :-(((

Medicool Dia-Pak Deluxe has got a more ergonomic design -- you unzip ONE compartment and everything is there. It is soft and despite being almost as big as the first one I got, fits into my purse muuuuuch better. There is room for pens, strips, meter, lancer, and glucotabs and log sheet or book and it is not awkward to get to them all.

Medicool does make smaller designs, hopefully as well thought out, too.

Amazing, some of the #[email protected]~ designs out there, for the money!

The company I work for is developing a pretty awesome carrying case.

It regulates temp, and runs on a re-chargeable battery, getting 3 days of temp regulation on 1 charge.

It has no moving parts, and we're pruning the final design to get it as sleek as possible.

Well I hope you all considered the ergonomics for the user. There is a lot of crap out there -- COSTLY crap!

Nope -- not on twitter.

Well, I like this case where are there ample loops to hold things ... extra ones! And I like all the testing stuff and all the insulin stuff, log, AND glucose to be in one compartment. AND ... one should not have to remove the meter from the case, in order to test!

foxl,

I realize you are on MDI, but do you think your new 'organizer' would also hold pump supplies such as an infusion set and reservoir? So glad that you've found something that actually "works" for you.

Oh, yeah -- it has multiple pocket of various sizes including HUGE, I think it would work. Might google or search amazon and take a look though.
