Elegant and functional

Delighted with my SideKYT. It looks really elegant, is superbly finished and leaves nothing to chance. I now feel super confident I have everything I need to manage my diabetes day to day as well as a stylish bag that has plenty of room for my "life stuff" and matches everything.

Our sincerest thanks

Dealing with diabetes is hard enough and the bag helps an enormous amount. The order it brings to an otherwise catastrophe of a handbag and trying to find a life saving something! And so stylish!

Jacoba G.

My KYT has arrived and it's amazing! I am so happy.

Tory S.
Beautiful and well made.

I have had lots of compliments on my new bag, love that people admire the bag and have no idea what the actual purpose I'm using it for is.

The lowdown on SideKYT+

This beauty's been honed with the help of diabetics from around the world
Testing simplified

Unzip the back, drop it, prop it, and your testing station’s ready for action. Leave all your equipment in place; just test straight from the bag.

Double duty

Diabetes and daily life can clash. So we split them up. Pack your life essentials in the front and your diabetes necessities in the back. Take one, take both, take life on.

Trash, stashed

Say goodbye to test strips following you everywhere. Open this nifty little trash pouch with one hand while you test with the other. Snap off, empty out, snap on.

Diabetes sorted out back

SideKYT+ has extra compartments for extra flexible ways to configure your equipment. It's a sometimes CGM, sometimes meter, sometimes pump, all–the–time spares kind of bag. Equipment storage loops can
flex to fit bigger tech, including Omnipod PDM. No pens? Those loops are just as handy for hypo candy.

Life sorted up front

We're not forgetting about life essentials either: more space in the back means SideKYT+ has more space up front for your life essentials, too.

Ethical craft, made to last

Ethically crafted with gold–rated Italian leather and solid–brass hardware — we've validated our supply chain to make sure KYT supports people and planet.
