5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended!!! 3 Aug 2010
Colour Name:Blue| Size Name:Large|Verified Purchase
Highly recommended. I have travelled and worked in some extremely hot places and these frio bags have liberated me.

They can be simply "recharged" by soaking for a short time in water, and the gel crystals inside soak and swell up. As the water evaporates this keeps the insulin within cool. Bear in mind that as the bags rely on evaporation to work they must be kept in the open air (and not in a closed confined space like a zipped up bag). Need soaking again in water every few days as the water evaporates. Kept my inslin cool during a month long cycle tour of Italy in August with no problems. I could have never embarked on a trip like that before....

A brilliant idea!

By bloomy
Colour Name:Red|Size Name:XL
We are on a 6 week tour of Australia & New Zealand, & were worried how to keep the insulin cool. The Frio has been a real boon, I didn't see how it could possibly work, but it does. It is brilliant. Thank you very much.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must when travelling 17 Mar 2012
By JoJo
Colour Name:Red| Size Name:Duo|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my daughters Insullin when travelling to Florida & it is a brilliant invention. We didnt have to worry about her insullin as the bag protected it from the heat every day whilst walking around the parks in the baking hot conditions. Its very easy to use & no mess & not expensive at all. Its compact & fits into any size bag & discreet too.

Colour Name:Blue|Size Name:Duo
These pouches really are fantastic. I've been using them for several years. Over time the crystals become less absorbant so they will need to be soaked for longer. I'm still able to use some that I began using over 5 years ago and they are still fine. If you buy them direct from the Frio website (google it for the url) then you get them VAT free (if you are diabetic), works out a fair bit cheaper than on here. They also have a wider range of pouches and other products such as head band and wrist bands - these were fab during the last heatwave (I live in optimism of anothe heat wave!!)

3.0 out of 5 stars UPDATED REVIEW: It works 21 Aug 2010
By Mummy TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Colour Name:Blue|Size Name:Large
I initially gave this one star after my first wallet failed, leached crystals and went rock hard.

Since then I have purchase another bag directly from the Frio website. This HAD instructions with it and their website now contains better information on soaking times for the different sizes of bags, crucial as these times vary. New bag seems to have done its job. I put a fridge thermometer which showed it stayed at a constant 16 to 17C. I resoaked the bag once during a week long vacation in Wales, though I think this may not have been totally necessary as it was not too hot.

THIS IS NOT A SUBSTITUTE FOR A REFRIGERATOR. Your insulin will be kept at a safe temperature so it is good for warm days but it is NOT going to keep it at the same chilled temperature as a fridge would. Your insulin life is therefore about the same as in use insulin kept at room temperature. If you are on the move in a warmer climate you will need to think about how often and where you will resoak the bag.

I also took along a medicool, a freezer block that fits into a foam container. It does a similar job but requires freezing before travel, holds less insulin and is bulky. Frio bags would be a better choice but do TEST it before your travel date.

If you are going to try this out make sure you test it well in advance of travelling. Also take a look at the reviews on Amazon.com. One reviewer had problems because of security checks on gel packs and advises you check the TSA website.

5.0 out of 5 stars FRIO Insulin Wallet 1 Sep 2009
Colour Name:Blue| Size Name:Small|Verified Purchase
I was a bit dubious about buying this wallet as it seemed expensive and I was not sure that it would work.

I was impressed with the speed of delivery and the packaging of the product.

Did it work? Yes it worked very well and I would recommend this item to anyone who needs to keep their insulin in a cool environment whilst on holiday. I took a spare pen with me in the wallet and used it last week. Everything was OK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Frio Insulin Cooling Wallett 27 Sep 2011
Colour Name:Blue|Size Name:Large
The wallett worked quite well, it was useful to have to prevent the insulin overheating when in Ibiza with temperatures about 30 degrees C. I think its performance was pretty much as I expected from reviews read and I found it easy to use.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is a good stout bag
This is a good stout bag, but actually NO insulation at all. It weighs 0.33 of a kilo so I'm going back to wrapping it all in a towel in the middle of the bag.

Does keep things cold pretty well but is a little bulky and you still would probably want to have your normal syringe case with you so it is additional bulk to carry.
