Whilst at MEC yesterday I went to the water sports section to see if they had any small waterproof cases that would work for EpiPens. Sure enough, the staff member working there has EpiPens himself and pointed me to the aquapac. It's designed to make your digital camera waterproof for underwater photos, and he says it works great as long as you make sure it is sealed properly (which is really easy). Just thought I'd share this new find, as I am sure other people could benefit from it as well. :)

They come in various sizes. This one fits two EpiPens (and a small inhaler): ... se-418.jsp

Larger ones will fit Twinject, larger inhalers, etc.

For those who saw my thread last summer about river rafting, I still have the Pelican Micro Case and it has proven to keep things dry for 8 hours submerged under water. (It's not guaranteed for submersion though...) However, it's big and not so great for snorkelling because I cannot attach it to my swimsuit without my swimsuit falling off. :oops: I like it for boating and going to the beach, or even hiking, but wanted something a bit smaller/lighter that I could take with me in the water for hours at a time. The aquapac fits that scenario and comes with a strap with toggles so I can tie it around my waist. Yay!
