Insulated by body heat Epipen underwear belt and leg pouch 

Two things to always remember if carry epipen or any epinephrine shots: Never leave your Epinephrine shots in the car nor place them in refrigerators or coolers. All manufacturers of Epipen, Auvi-q and companies who make different types of epinephrine injections recommend you keep them at temperatures similar to your body.

This is what the makers of Epipen recommend:

“EpiPen and EpiPen Jr (epinephrine injection) Auto-Injectors should be stored in the carrier tube provided at a temperature of 25°C (77°F); however, temperature excursions between 15°C and 30°C (59°F to 86°F) are permitted. EpiPen® and EpiPen Jr® Auto-Injectors should not be stored in refrigerators or in a vehicle’s glove box. EpiPen® Auto-Injectors should not be exposed to extreme heat or cold and should be protected from light.” For additional information visit Epipen.com

BEST INSULATION

Kepping the Epipen near your body “closed to your skin” inside a carrier such as the WaistPal. A team of wilderness medicine researches tested various containers such as the ones used for insulin and “Body Heat” was the one that was able to protect insulin and epinephrine.

They tested taping a pouch to their bodies and in their published reports mentioned WaistPal as the best way to carry Epipen because it works better at maintaining the Epipens temperature even during extreme temperatures in long outdoor travels.
