Join me every day this week as I highlight diabetes-related products we’ve tried out this summer. Read more D-Mom Tested product reviews.

I was on Facebook one day and saw a link to the Rylee’s Pocket page. Since Q has recently started using a CGM, I’m on the lookout for options to carry the receiver.

The Rylee’s Pocket tanks come in different colors (for BOTH girls AND boys and adults, I might add) and feature a small pocket sewn near the bottom. At first glance it looks like its just a styling detail, but unzip the zipper and lo and behold it holds an insulin pump!

What’s cool is that if you wear a traditional tubed pump, there is a button hole on the underside through which you can route your tubing. No one even has to see it.

We use the OmniPod, which has no tubing, so that’s not an issue for us.

But I asked them if they thought the DexCom receiver would fit. She gave me the dimensions and in the spirit of market research we gave it a try.

For us, the DexCom receiver fit just fine. It fits snugly, but we can get it in and then just unzip to look at the screen and press the buttons.

The tank was a Cherokee that had been modified.

And Q may or may not have worn her bright pink Rylee’s Pocket tank after receiving it in the afternoon mail, to bed, and the entire next day until I pried it off of her and insisted she throw it in the laundry hamper.

I love that we’ve found another option for carrying the receiver.

And I know you are thinking that it’s almost fall and why would you want a tank. Layers, baby!

They were even recently featured in a CNN article “Physically challenged and fashionable.” One of their goals is to make enough sales to donate tanks to a local diabetes camp.

Visit the Rylee’s Pocket website, find them on Facebook, and purchase from their Etsy site.

Thank you for the amazing article! I am so happy to know that the DexCom fits! And that that you had to pry it off her to wash it!

We wish your family, particularly Rylee, great success in this endeavor!

And I wanted to mention (and will add it in the post because I don’t think I was clear) that the DexCom fits without the silicone skin on it.
