Grateful for Abilities!

What a wonderful treat to be part of this very special Expo last weekend. Abilities is a show that celebrates people with all kinds of unique situations and offers resources and tools to make their lives easier and better.


We are thrilled to help people have a better way to always know where their cell phones, ID/cards, medical devices and other small essentials are at all times :))  #justWEARit  #pocketsRx

Happy Mother's Day weekend!


It's Mother's Day tomorrow.

Mothers are a blessing and should be cherished, daily.
Hug. Smile. Repeat.

To every mom out there... this is for YOU!

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 people with diabetes, 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 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!
