    Hi all, quick question. Anyone who takes injectable medication on holiday, do you have a special bag or pouch that keeps the pen/medication cool? If so please could you tell me where you would get that from. Thanks

    Google "Frio" and you'll find suitable pouches.

    I've just got a Frio and I love it. Easy to use. They posted it within a day or 2. Can't figure out how to post a photo though. I got the owl pattern because why not?!

    I used Frio bags "google it " for NovoRapid and Lantus for a 5 week trip to Morocco, Spain and Dubai. No problems through customs and different countries. The bags come in different sizes
