Any recommendations for a hard case that I can use for DD's PDM, lancing device and strips?
Besides Pelican, the first thing that came to my mind was Otterbox. I'm not sure of the PDM dimensions but between the 2 you should be able to find a good size. They're all a bit bulky but they offer great protection if that's what you're looking for.
i am thinking camera or GPS cases.
We use a camera case that has padding and has a very large clip that we clip onto my son's belt loop. It's perfect.
I have a Pelican that was perfect for the beach but I think it was for the old PDM. I will check and see if they still fit and post the model here.
What is a Pelican?
It's a brand of hard cases made for a variety of needs, including cameras, ipods, etc.
Just looking for the right size for DD's stuff for her backpack for school, which seems to get rough treatment now and again.
Thanks that would be really helpful.
We have an Otterbox that works well. It fits the PDM, strips, lancets, and some alcohol pads easily.
Do you know which model you have?
It's a 3000. It's a little too big for everything, but works really well.
Thank you. It really helps.
We use a plastic pencil box that we bought at Walmart for $.99. It fits the PDM, lancets, lancing device, alcohol pads and a juice box perfectly!
How about a makeup bag?
I'm hoping to find something hard-sided to protect her PDM in her backpack. I'd spend more for something waterproof that would work for the beach, etc.
Vergo im curious what you ended up going with and your likes and dislikes? We just ordered the pod and were looking into a case for extra protection. Thanks TJ.
I did buy an Otterbox (I think it was the 3000), but did not end up using it for every day use. We have used it on vacation at the beach and while kayaking. The PDM, a vial of strips, and Multiclix lancing device fit inside with room to spare.
I had hoped to find a box that was smaller and a better fit, to protect the PDM in DD's backpack, but instead, we simply use an Accu-check Aviva meter case--the PDM fits into it with strips and lancing device with room for few extra supplies as well.
Although this is a very old thread , we LOVE our cases from Diabete-ezy They are expensive but really good..
