Keeps all my diabetes "stuff" together

I just wanted to provide some feedback to you about the StarterKYT. It is amazing and has really helped me keep all my diabetes “stuff” altogether in a very attractive package. The folding and unfolding mechanism is brilliant as are the magnets to close the ends. I love it. Thanks for designing it.

Just perfect!

StarterKYT arrived. Love it!!! So well made. It is amazing quality and well designed. My T1D 20 year old uses it daily. He initially thought he would only use it at weekends but it's so useful and durable on the Jobsite.

Perfect size and quality

Perfect size for all my equipment yet small enough so i can take it with me without any hassle. Quality is amazing and feels really well made. I like that it folds out so i have my own little portable testing station whenever im out and i can easily do it discreetly. Feels quite sturdy too and i don't have to worry so much about breaking insulin vials or pens. Big lifesaver!

Magnificent new bag

I just received my new StarterKYT. I cannot believe how compact it is yet everything I need slots in like magic. It really suits my need for a compact and discreet way to carry my things, with no bulk and no fuss. Fantastic!

Unfold in a snap

Super–strong magnets and some clever folds keep your equipment a snap away. Open it flat. Snap it back.

Testing simplified

Unfold, lay out, test away. Leave all your equipment in place; just test straight from the case.

Smaller, smarter

The smallest diabetes accessory around (we think); about the size of a sunglasses case. Built for your bare essentials with no space to waste.

Just the basics

This minimal case maximises space. StarterKYT cleverly fits your essential kit: an insulin pen, testing kit, and compact pocket for sharps or snacks.

Supplies on the sly

StarterKYT's discreet while in reach. Slip it into a carry bag or coat pocket, stow it in the glove box, sit it at your desk. However you take it, this case isn't asking for attention.

Ethical craft, made to last

Ethically crafted from hardy cross-grain leather and hefty hidden magnets — we've validated our supply chain to make sure KYT supports people and planet.
