Thread: Contour Next Link Meter Case

  1. #1

    Default Contour Next Link Meter Case

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a place to order a meter case that will hold the Contour Next Link Meter, strips, accucheck lancing device and a small pkg of skittles? We just got the new Medtronic pump with the Contour meter. I don't like the case it comes with. Like the size of the new meter, but the case seems really flimsy and hard to take things in and out. Thanks in advance for suggestions!

    We have been using the case for a month now and I like it - but I carry the case in my purse alot or my coat pocket. I also have an extra zipper pouch from 31 that I use to carry other supplies (I am a 31 rep so alot of our supplies are in 31 totes and puches. We don't carry skittles but have smarties instead, I found smaller rolls of smarties that are 6 carbs a roll which work great.
    As for the lancet - we found that putting it in face down it stays in the holder better - but we use the lancet that came with our one touch meter

    My son rarely uses meter cases - they are just too bulky for him. He crams things in his pockets (wears alot of cargo pants/shorts) but at school he uses a pencil case. We found one that is larger and has two sides so pencils go on one side and meter, strips, poker, and smarties or skittles go on the other.

    We don't use the meter case for our "day bag" either which is a small backpack. It has a small pocket on the outside and the meter, poker, etc. all fit in it.

    We don't have that meter yet, so I'm not totally sure on it's side, but check out Stick Me Designs. (Website, Facebook and Pinterest) I just got my son a case from there and really like it. His is made of orange and grey seat belt webbing. Inside has a zipper ouch, done pockets and then 2 non adjustable elastic spots for lancet and strips and then another elastic spot that has Velcro on it so its adjustable for your meter. He has his One Touch Ultra Lunk in it right now.

    I just got one too. Its such garbage I would think they would be better off sending it without a case. I went to their site and had a chat. I emphasized my need to to use it as a travel meter, as apposed to the existing Medtronic meter that I use now. After some discussion they agreed to send me a deluxe case. I have the case now; I don't know about deluxe, but it is meaningfully better. Better material and slightly larger in size.

    I called Bayer and they sent me the Bayer USB case, it is a little bigger - we put the strips in an empty one touch container which also helps - he also uses the one touch delica lancet - not sure why the case for the USB meter is bigger but it is...the place for the meter itself is exactly the same. He keeps a syringe, a battery and extra lancets in the zipper pouch but a pack of skittles would probably fit too.

    The case that comes with the contour next meter is pretty impossible to use. I use the accu-check aviva soft case for my DD's contour next meter. It fits the meter, lancet & large strip bottle nicely. It's inexpensive...I think only around $5 and it comes it some cute patterns too. Here's the link:

    I found this old post , but had a few questions from it.
    What is the Bayer USB case like? Is that not the one Medtronic sends with the Bayer Next meter?
    How about this website Stick Me Designs. Have many of you ordered from here?
    Really curious about the comment about Accu Chek Aviva soft case. I love Accu Chek cases. How does it fit the Bayer Next USB meter?
    I also only use Accu Chek muti clix lancets. We have used those since they came out and never plan to switch.

    We are cramming the meter into an old freestyle lite case. The Bayer strip case is huge and the meter case is hard and bulky, my son likes to wear it on his belt, so he needs velcro on the outside of the case. I will look into the other options too. Thanks!
