    Hi
    Hanna is covering her ping with a skin, it is a flexible rubber and I think it protects the pump from little dings and scratches. Its not that thick, but I think it does a good job. Hanna wants more to change the color according to her mood. She has pink camo on right now.

    No ,the buttons are not covered with the skin, nor is the screen. Basically, it is protecting the paint job on the pump.

    I have noticed that sand or dirt can get under the skin and scratch the paint so taking it off once in a while to get out the dirt is a good idea.

    Well, darn, I was hoping it covered the buttons, we have screen protectors but he has went through 3 pumps in the beginning by tearing off and picking at the buttons. His new pump, that we had to pay out of pocket for and does not have a warranty, is coming today. He leaves his pump alone now and it is in a pump pouch that he can't get in to. But he only has one and sometimes he wets the bed and he has to wear his pump in his pocket while I wash it. I was just trying to take the extra precaution with the buttons. Better safe than sorry. Any ideas??

    Have you tried using shirts with pockets in the back so he can't get to the pump at all? PM me your address, and I'll send you a couple.
