At the eye doctor

A little while back, I was at a retina specialist and one of the other patrons in the waiting room asked me, "wasn't that you I saw in the newspaper?" (of course we both had our eyes max dilated & we could hardly see, but it was nice to be recognized)! We got to talking and I showed him my PortaPocket Essentials, so he showed me his "corresponding" product -- a leg holder version for a Minimed insulin pump. I explained how my PortaPocket offers similar opportunity to wear a pump on the leg, but furthermore gives one much more options:
he would be able to wear his pump exactly as he is used to on his calf, but also have the choice of using it on his thigh, ankle, or at his waist, too. The detachability of the pocket and the adjustable nature of the strap allows him the flexibility to use his pump in various locations without additional investment. Also, if he was going to wear his pump at his waist by sliding the pocket onto his own belt, another family member could use the strap portion, along with another accessory pocket, and wear the apparatus as a cell phone or iPod holder, etc. He really liked my concept and said he'd be getting his next pump holder from me ... and he eventualy did! :)

Deputy incident @Panera...

There was that recent situation with that 61 yr old grandma/sheriff's deputy at Panera Bread...she'd put her purse down under her coat and then found herself in the throes of a theft situation when 3 individuals tried to steal her wallet. She commeted "I knew if I let go, my identity was gone..."
Just another of the myriad reasons not to rely on a purse that has all your valuables in it!

Some creative uses...

A couple purchasers had offered some unique usages of PortaPocket cases...
but both very valid and interesting for those using this type of equipment:
One told me her 5th grader likes to strap the case right onto her bike frame to keep her phone handy.
Another mentioned that she really enjoys to wrap the strap onto her wheelchair frame to give her opporunity to get at her belongings, as the basket BEHIND her doesn't really have value for the person sitting there!

when you accidentally drop your phone in the toilet, it really helps to have a PortaPocket case around it...
I think it saved my Blackberry the other day...!
Happy Valentines everyone...
