    Yeah, u should get the carry case for monitor and 1 skin for the pump. Also a strap to clip pump to. I ended up buying the clear clip case for pump as the skin one broke within a week lol, £15 from accu check. Very snug fit and clip can be rotated for pump to be horizontal or vertical. Also alot better than the free skin clip.
