The Diabetic SPIbelt® is the perfect product for individuals with medical needs because it is comfortable enough for daily wear and was designed to carry an insulin pump. Every Diabetic SPIbelt can securely and comfortably accommodate cords and infusion tubing through a reinforced pass-through hole. The pass-through hole is placed behind the pocket to allow tubing to feed through the patented pouch design. The pocket expands to 6.5″ x 3″ x 2″ and fits waist size of 25″- 47″ to accommodate essential supplies such as:
Blood Glucose Meters
Insulin Vials or Pens
Can I use an Original SPIbelt for a CGM?
Many of our customers with Type 1 Diabetes use the Original SPIbelt. While it doesn’t have the pass through hole in the back, you can feed the tubing through the front where the zipper ends. You won’t have to have to disconnect the infusion set connector from the device.
Will two EpiPens fit into a SPIbelt?
We suggest the Original SPIbelt™ when carrying two EpiPens®.
What size SPIbelt should I buy?
We offer three sizes of SPIbelts™.
- The Kids' SPIbelt fits a child with a 18"–24" waist size (all Kids' SPIbelts come in Non-Logo elastic).
- Adult SPIbelts fit a 24"–47" waist size.
- The SPIbelt Belt Extender™ extends your SPIbelt’s elastic by up to 12 inches. NOTE: The Belt Extender is not compatible with the Endurance Series SPIbelt™, the SPI H2O™ Venture Series, the Kids’ SPIbelt, and the SPI Messenger Bag™.
Does SPIbelt bounce when full?
For best results, position your SPIbelt™ below your waistband. Place flat and larger items closest to your body. The heavier the items the more snuggly you’ll want to adjust the elastic on your SPIbelt. A standard load consists of a smart phone, cash, ID, and car key.
How do I wear my SPIbelt?
Here are some suggestions on how to wear a SPIbelt™ for comfort, style, and best fit! Make sure the zipper is aligned in the center of the pocket instead of having the zipper at the top. Stack items from largest to smallest from bottom to top. The SPIbelt can be wore high or low on the hips. We find most people prefer lower on the hips (a few inches below the navel). Don’t forget to make sure that the elastic is snug!
Is SPIbelt washable?
Yes. Hand wash with a mild detergent and hang to dry.
Care concerns: machine washing and drying your SPIbelt™ may lead to fabric snags and broken plastic.
