how was your Earth Day?

We hope it was wonderful!  As you know, we only have one planet and it is our job to protect it and be good stewards for future generations. 

Here at PortaPocket we make a practice of recycling all packaging possible, and make our retail boxes out of cardboard for just that purpose. We also have an annual tradition of going out and picking up trash in the nature areas of our community to do our part.

Have a wonderful spring!

(p.s. did you ever think of using PortaPocket when you garden? ...try it!)

Got an insulin pump? Now you can wear it anywhere!

So nice to be at the ADA Diabetes EXPO at McCormick Place in Chicago over this last weekend! We were able to show how PortaPocket pockets handily fit current models of insulin pumps on the market today, including those from Medtronic, Animas, Dexcom, One Touch, and Tandem Diabetes, among others.


It's often a challenge for diabetics, whether Type 1 or Type 2, to find comfortable solutions to wear their vital devices. Especially ones that actually work WELL. 

PortaPocket is thrilled to serve this community, and provides tools for you to wear your pump (and other things) almost ANYwhere on your body. Our versatile system gives you choices in where and how you wear your pump, whether you want to hide it under a dress/skirt, wear it under a pantleg, or around waist/hip, arm or anywhere else. Our comfy neoprene components (and zero plastic or metal parts) mean it's a dream to use when you sleep at night, too.



Why not enjoy better comfort as you go about your day.

Happy pi day!


But of course. PortaPocket can fit that, too

(though no doubt a bit messily ;)

Have fun with it!

Happy MLK Day!

  Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?'  
Martin Luther King, Jr.


Today we celebrate one of history's most revered activist leaders of Civil Rghts, the late great Martin Luther King, Jr.  While he may no longer be with us, his message is as relevant and important as ever. With a shared vision, we can make the future brighter for EVERYone... no matter one's skin color, orientation or creed.

While humanity is our common bond, we can't make the world perfect. But in our small but useful way, we can at least make it easier. And make sure we all, equally, have a way to carry what we need as we go about our day. #PocketEquality for all!

Stop the madness!

We're always ready for your costume..or anime outfit ...or any other pocket challenged ensemble you decide to wear.  Don't be a fashion slave. Put those pockets on yourSELF (literally ;)

debate THIS ;)

So, who watched the debate last night between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump? Or, maybe we should ask who didn't? ;)

Not sure if it was a comedy or a serious discussion at times, with Trump throwing zingers out there, not only with his facial expressions, but also about potential '400 lb men', in bed, trolling around on the internet ...on a hack mission. oh my...!

Well... it'll be interesting to see what happens come November...

In the meantime, I think what's not to debate is that we all know pockets in our clothes basically suck, so why not just use an alternative! :)

an EPIc fail for the public?

Have you heard about how Mylan just increased the price of their EpiPens to the tune of 460+%? Seems almost shades of that piece-of-work CEO who bought a longstanding drug that was needed by a small segment of the population... but then screwed them over by jacking up its cost 7000 fold.

Apparently, greed is still here to stay, sadly. ;(


Even with this drug suppliers' unfortunate increase of this life-saving drug (along with a huge uptick in their own already hefty salaries...), we here at PortaPocket still offer you the same useful products you've come to count on and appreciate...and at consistent pricing that won't break your wallet... for almost 9 years now. For us, it's all about putting good things out into the world...in the true spirit of making life better. We will never put profits over purpose.
