Frio for Insulin - Diabetics

Have any of you ever used the Frio to keep your insulin cold? I want something small but effective. I need it to fit a few syringes and a Humalin bottle each day. We usually get a locker, so I could store most syringes there and just take 2-3 with me.

Last time we went in Dec 2011, my insulin seemed to quit working and the high was only in the low 80's.

I have been using them for years. I, and others in the Forum, highly recommend them. Check out www.coolerconcept.com for more information.

My husband has also been using his for years and it has been working out great for all our trips.
I first found out about them on the Dis board.

I don't carry insulin into the parks, but my Frio wallet works very well on the eight-plus hour trip there.

I don't think I would use Frio for long term storage of my spares, but it works great to keep the in use vial cold. Love it!
