I’ve had the Scottevest T-shirts for a while, and they are fabulous for hiding an insulin pump and even a phone or two.
I’m going to Portland, Oregon for the Grace Hopper Women in Computing Conference next week, and I have been wanting a Scottevest vest I could actually wear for a while. I own a woman’s size vest, but can’t wear it, as it is too small.
I ordered a Men’s 2x, and it fits my chest fine, but a bit tight in the hips. Can wear it open though, and can wear it hiked up an inch zipped.
I have it pretty much loaded with everything I would carry in a go-bag.
- Meter, lancing device, and strips. Using a Accu-check lancing device helps, because 6 lancing devices come in a single cartridge.
- Two infusion sets and cartridges.
- Insulin and rewetting drops
- Money and wallet
- 2 Zune HD Players (may leave them home)
- Headphones laced into headphone management system
- Extra batteries for the phone
It weighs slightly less than my go-bag, since it is made of nylon fabric but I’ve worn it on three different excursions now, and I find wearing it is easier than carrying a bag. Added bonus, it eliminates a bag.
I am planning on taking a small carry on bag with extra supplies in it. My CPAP and it’s emergency battery. I hope to be able to sleep on the planes since I’ll be traveling quite a while.
