Microfibre Roll-Up (closed)

Microfibre Roll-Up (closed)

Available in black microfibre or  black leather from our distribution partner GlucoRx. CLICK HERE TO BUY!

While researching what kinds of kitbags will suit people with diabetes (PWDs), we found that some PWDs use more than two insulins, or prefer syringes to insulin pens, or have injections as well as pills or are on an insulin pump, with the various bits of equipment that entails. It means that some of us have to carry around even more equipment. In order to address this, we’ve had this kitbag designed. The Roll-Up fits all the following, and keeps it safe and dry.

Pump users — the Roll-Up fits several infusion sets (as many as six, depending on the model), an inserters, spare battery and reservoirs (usually four reservoirs can fit in).

The ROLL-UP model fits:

  • Blood test machine
  • Finger pricker
  • Spare sensors
    The Roll Up Kitbag

    Roll-Up, open showing all the kit alongside that fits in.

  • Two insulin injection pens (can be carried in a Frio bag within the Roll-up kitbag)
  • Spare pen needles
  • Spare pen refills (insulin cartridges)
  • Blood test diary and pen
  • Diabetic ID
  • In addition, it can also carry syringes and insulin bottles
  • Tissues, cotton wool
  • A Hypo treatment (such as a tube of sweets)
  • A pill carrier (daily or weekly doses)
  • A small bottle of germ-free hand cleaner

The Roll-up — vital statistics

H: 25cm (9.8″, when closed; 66cm — or 26″ — when fully open)
W: 20cm (7.9″)
D: 8cm (3.1″, when closed)
Wt: (when empty): 300g

    i’m a bit confused, the photo halfway up the page doesn’t look like it’s “rollup”…is that just the wrong photo by mistake? i’m after something that will roll up to a cylinder shape and just shove down the side of a backpack! thanks

    Hi Clare, basically the there are three parts to the Roll-up, two of them roll-up over the third part. I suppose we could have called it the Fold-up but it seemed like a Roll-up to us when we came up with the design. It does not roll up into a cylinder, I’m sorry to say. Sue

    are these bags only available on this web site or can they be brought else where?

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Aug 21st, 2012 at 18:24

    If you Google ‘Desang kitbags’ you can see where else we sell — like on Amazon and from Arctic Medical as well as Diabetes UK. We only sell in one high street shop, which is John Bell and Croydon in London.

    I currently own a classic kitbag and find it good for everyday use, however when travelling I find the lack of a shoulder strap means it unsuitable. Have you considered making a kit bag with a shoulder strap.

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Jul 6th, 2013 at 15:16

    Hi David, the problem with making any kitbag bigger is that it eventually just turns into a bag. There is a wrist strap for the Classic. We once sold satchels for Classic kitbags but we didn’t sell enough to make it worthwhile. Hopefully you might find a small bag that you can put your Classic in which works for you. Best wishes, Sue

    Hi Sue,
    I have had a roll up kit bag ( for my son) for some time. The zip has broken on one of the larger compartments. Is it possible to buy the inner Velcro compartments separately ? the bag itself is in excellent condition.
    Thank you.

  • sue's Comment sue Posted On: Jul 30th, 2013 at 19:09

    Hello Kathleen, yes I can replace the pocket. Please send me an email with your address to sue.marshall@desang.net and I will sort.
