    I find asking for a fridge in most hotels to be a pain in the tuchus.
    That being said, I hope these devices work. :-)

    I’m new to the exciting world of having to carry insulin with me. It’s been over 100F for weeks and so far, I’m sticking it in my cooler with some blue ice and hoping for the best. Not sure what I’m going to do come winter – how do you keep it at the right temperature then?

    A couple of months ago, I had just gone through a patdown at an airport security checkpoint and was gathering all my stuff when I saw another gentleman who was repacking his insulin pens in ice packs. He had trouble taking the ice packs through security, but eventually was able to make his way through. Something like this would’ve saved him a lot of hassle. DMProducts

    DMProducts – I’m traveling in the Midwest right now and wish I remembered my Frio wallet. It’s much warmer here than the mellow temps of the SF Bay Area!

    Did the Sanofi rep say anything about the stability of insulin in a patch pump when the local temperature is above 87 degrees? It’s pretty hard to cool a device attached to your body.

    Do the Frio bags get soggy? Can you put it in your purse with your other back up stuff? I like the concept.

    This summer with the extreme temps of 100 plus would be assuring. And protection during 10 below also.

    This summer I have thrown away 2 bottles of Humalog that I had in my back up bag in fear of exposure to heat.

    What are the dimensions of the smallest bag?

    ClimaPak seems to be a little overpriced, considering existence of Frio.

    In one Las Vegas hotel where I stayed, there was a notice close to the fridge to say I would be CHARGED if I used the fridge to store anything. Mind you the A/c ensured the room never got too warm.

    DM Products – Frio products are pretty awesome. You do need to make sure that they have airflow for them to be most effective. Best to keep them in a mesh pocket or just out in the open.

    DM Products~ Love our Frio , would like to win a pump pack. The red case does bleed though. I would get a different color. Last a week. Would suggest a week more of drying time in humid climates, before putting away.

    DM Products – I’ve never traveled in any really hot weather yet with my insulin, but that may be changing this summer. My sandwiches in my cold bag ruin the flavor of my insulin, so I would definitely appreciate winning one of those Frio bags.

    I’ve never tried the Frio, is there any chance it fits around an insulin pump? We frequently hit the outdoors in the summer and I am always trying to keep the pump cool…not always a realistic endeavor!

    DMProducts – We have been using a Frio for beach trips for five years now. Still quite pleased with it. It tends to attract a little bit of attention at the airports, but usually gets by with a swab.

    I love the Frio I bought years ago when I was on pens. Still using it to transport vials of insulin. It doesn’t leak into my purse or backpack.

    DMProducts! My daughter was diagnosed with Type 1 last June and I have struggled with methods on how to keep her insulin cool. The Frio packs look like a perfect solution! There are so many times that I have to lug a cooler with ice packs to field trips, vacation, etc and it is big and bulky. Would love to try this! And the new ClimaPack is super cool. I can see this being extremely useful for a long day at the beach, etc.

    When looking for a new car recently I noticed that on some models you can purchase an option to have the airconditioning diverted through to the glove box to keep drinks cool! I thought that this would be a great idea for keeping my insulin, albeit an expensive extra.
    I think the fridge idea is great. I had a frio once, and the gel just leaked everywhere – not ideal. At the moment I just use a thermos flask. The short fat soup/food ones are good for vials and the tall drinks ones for pens. They always make me open them at the airport as the scanners cannot see through metal very well.

    Actually the Frio is a really nice device.. But.. you do have to prep it.. and doesnt last a whole day.. Said in a fb post.. Nothing worse than having to go back home because you didnt carry an extra vial or pen around afraid it would go bad/stale in this heat.. Unplug, toss insulin in, and go.. think its a lot nicer than those cheezy pen coolers iv seen online. This has been the year iv had to worry about keeping insulin cold.. power failures as well.. Really think the climapak is a great idea even with the price tag where it is.. Hoping it may come down a bit with manufacturing volume. But being able to swap out a battery… frankly ill probably leave it plugged into the car 12vt at times..dont have to worry about the car ac working =)
