    It looks like a piece of drek, in my opinion.

    None of these diabetic bags have ever worked for me, so I’m not surprised that this glorified lunch bag is better at holding your lunch than your pump supplies. I’ve always found it easier to find a back pack or a purse with a smallish internal pocket to carry everything, but yay for more merch for relatives to buy their newly diagnosed D-friends :p

      Hi, Karen. Thanks for reading the post! The price is mentioned up there in the paragraphs below the images of the bag – all are priced at $29.95. What do you think about that being “affordable,” and would you buy one of these bags?

    I wonder if anyone from the DOC was actually contacted about this design. Given Amy’s focus on design issues, and my concerns about the lack of user experience based design I’m surprised neither of use was contacted.

    I’m with Amy in terms of carry bags, For a long time I used a small carrier from Eagle Creek, now I have supplies stashed in my office.

    What I want from a bag would be the opposite of what Sanofi has done. I want a bag that can carry my gear and lunch that has a separate lunch bag I can pull out and put in a fridge from the main bag.

    What is the possibility that these will also come with “backpack” straps vs. a shoulder strap? Thinking primarily about my son, and other boys who may want to use one, the shoulder strap tends to look more “girlish” and “purse-like”. I would buy one of these in a heartbeat if it had backpack straps.

    Glorified lunch bag indeed…surely Sanofi could have done better and for that price?! Yep they could have.

    I agree with the first person who posted a comment. This bag looks like a dreck. Why didn’t they at least ask someone who deals with diabetes 24×7 for their input?

    Though this post was NOT about the iBGStar, per se, I want to comment that I LOVED that meter. Unfortunately, recently Sanofi Aventis broke their contract with McKesson (a distributor) forcing all patients to obtain their iBGStar test strips at Walgreens. My local Walgreens is inferior to my local Rite-Aid, and since Walgreens kept having trouble getting strips for me, I sadly switched to the Bayer Contour Next Link, which communicates with my Medtronic 530G pump. I really miss my iBGStar meter!!!!
