The Slim Kitbag »

Desang’s range of diabetes kitbags is currently exclusively available from Diabetes UK. The models available are the Classic, the Slim and the Pen Pack, all in black leather.

Everything in one place means easier diabetic control. Ideal for:

  • Everyday use
  • Travel
  • Business trips
  • As a back-up for pump users

The Slim model is ideal for those who only use one insulin during the day, or those on an insulin pump. Pumpers still need to blood test, and it’s good practice to have a pack-up insulin pen handy ‘just in case’ you need it.

Neat and discreet, the SLIM model fits:Slim Kitbags

  • One insulin injection pen
  • Blood test machine
  • Finger pricker
  • Spare pen refills (insulin cartridges)
  • Spare sensors
  • Blood test diary and pen
  • Spare needles and lancets
  • It can also be used for insulin bottles and syringes

    I am a active person and would like a a slim kitbag with a belt loop. Leaving my hands free.

    Hi Frederick, that’s a good idea and I’ll bear it in mind for when we can further expand the range. In the meantime, I’m not actually aware of any diabetes carry case that has a belt hook. If I find one, I will let you know. — Sue

    Hi,
    I’m looking for a kit bag that will also keep my insulin cool. I have a couple of FRIO bags, but they’re not pretty. Plus they only keep my insulin cool, they’re not a carry everything kinda bag.
    Thanks
    Sufia

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Jun 21st, 2011 at 18:18

    Sufia, our kitbags do not have in-built cool bags, but you can buy small ones that you can fit on. Or use a Frio pouch and put it inside one of our Roll-ups. Please also see this page on our site as it has more info on keeping insulin cool.

    Will both the classic and slim kit bag accomodate a Accu-Chek monitor and all the other equpment you have listed????

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Sep 28th, 2011 at 17:39

    Hi Allan, sorry for slow reply! Yes, the Accu-Chek Mobile fits in neatly — both in the Slim and the Classic kitbags. No worries! Sue

  • Allan Parsons's Comment Allan Parsons Posted On: Sep 17th, 2011 at 17:22

    ben

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Sep 28th, 2011 at 17:40

    Yes, the Classic has more space, but you can fit some spare lancets in any of the kitbags. Sue

  • Donna's Comment Donna Posted On: Jan 23rd, 2012 at 14:18

    Thanks to Sue for all her help and advice, the slim kit bag is just perfect!

  • Tom Cave's Comment Tom Cave Posted On: Feb 4th, 2012 at 21:58

    I am looking for an ultra compact kitbag, so I can carry my meter in something smaller and more stylish than the black canvas thing it comes with. Are you developing anything along these lines?

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Feb 8th, 2012 at 12:55

    Tom, not at the moment… we started designing kitbags that fitted both blood testing and insulin delivery stuff in — our smallest model is the Slim. We’ve since done a Pen Pack that’s just for insulin pens (two of them, as most of us use x2 insulins if we’re on a pen). You can look up Joe’s Small-in-one — we have those on our site, but are also on the testing+meds theme. Otherwise, you cal look around at other sorts of bags to see if you can find one you fancy, such as on Julie Slater’s site here. The problem with blood test meters is just that there are so many of them now! But I agree, those bags they come with are pretty rubbish! Sue

  • Carol's Comment Carol Posted On: Jul 2nd, 2012 at 22:38

    Have used 2 slim kitbags (one tan, one black) holds everything I need but I remove the velcro so I can find everything with ease. Have traveled from Norway to USA. Holds everything!
    Many thanks for such a great product. Can fit one pen in the holding section and a second one in the middle!

    Where can I get one in the US?

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Oct 3rd, 2012 at 15:23

    Hi, I’m sorry but we do not have a distributor in the US. You can order on this site and we mail to the States. Postage rates are reasonable. Sue

  • Kerry Cullen's Comment Kerry Cullen Posted On: Dec 8th, 2012 at 09:59

    Would the contour USB meter fit in the slim kitbag
    10cmX3.5cmX2cm
    a different shape to most other meters

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Dec 9th, 2012 at 10:48

    Hi Kerry, yes it would, it’s pretty small, so no probs with that and with the tub of sensors and finger-pricker too. They will fit in fine! Sue

  • gary's Comment gary Posted On: May 22nd, 2013 at 12:13

    I have two insulin pens (fast and long acting). Can I fit these both in the slim kitbag?

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Jul 6th, 2013 at 15:15

    Hello Gary, the Slim kitbag is specifically designed to hold one insulin, the Classic is specifically designed to hold two. Sue

  • richard's Comment richard Posted On: Mar 25th, 2014 at 01:43

    why am all bags and wallets dark colours ,when I put mine down I can never see it strait away so why not make them illuminus or with a little reflextor reflector light and a strong belt clip

  • joe's Comment joe Posted On: Jul 5th, 2016 at 01:25

    Hi Sue,
    In the Slim kitbag – what size is the pocket/ space for the blood glucose diary? I need to use the DAFNE one which measures 15cm by 10cm. just want to make sure it fits.
    Thanks.

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Jul 6th, 2016 at 15:33

    Hi Joe, the diary should fit. Under the two velcro’d pockets there is a ‘flat’ pocket. Basically, the diary would slide in under the two velcro pockets. We also do diaries. Email me direct and I can send you a sample. They definitely fit. See more here: http://www.desang.net/kitbags/the-desang-blood-test-diary/

    Email me at: info@desang.net

    Best wishes, Sue
