FRIO Insulin Cooling Case

This cooling case keeps things simple and is the ideal light, compact pouch to throw everything in and take with you. It keeps insulin (and other temperature-sensitive medications) safe without the hassle of ice packs or refrigeration. The wallet’s inner dimensions are 5.5” x 7”, which holds four insulin pens or six 10-milliliter vials and syringes. Since the wallet doesn’t require refrigeration, it is helpful for emergency preparedness, camping and traveling. It is activated with water and must be soaked for 5–10 minutes, after which it keeps the temperature of its contents under 78°F for a minimum of two days. The FRIO pouch is lighter and smaller than traditional medication-cooling cases, making it easily portable and no-fuss.
