Beautiful & functional

Thank you for creating such a beautiful and functional crossbody. We both love what you are doing for our T1D community. KYT has made our fancy outings lovely these days.

Finally!

I don't know how many handbags I've loved and never bought because they didn't work for my diabetes equipment. But the search is over! I love how this bag offers everything I need for my diabetes stuff, without skimping on the high-quality, chic details I want in a bag. Thank you!

Blown away

I have to gush to you about how blown away I was opening my beautiful new KYT! The packaging (with the tiniest amount of plastic possible?!)! The blue box! The BAG!! The brass details! The angles! It was such a delight to open.

The Bag has arrived and it is lovely lovely lovely.

My first reaction to the new design is how crisp in line and how elegant it is. I love the firmer feel, and find that all the gear one must carry as a diabetic, fits so easily and comfortably into the KYT. Very easy to use. I am so grateful that you came up with these designs just when I needed them. You have made my old age so much more comfortable. I am now required to use a walking stick, and the KYT with everything in it makes life for me much easier. With my KYT bag and stick I am able to keep up with my outside activities .

Wow, what a beautiful little bag.

I love it. It's the perfect size to hold all the things I need everyday. It's no fun having diabetes but getting this lovely bag to carry all my supplies has given me a much needed lift. Thank you so much.

It’s perfect, just what I’ve been looking for.

I love how it fits all my kit but still has room for handbag essentials without being too bulky! Can’t wait to start using it!

The perfect gift

KYT is the perfect present for my daughter. She has just been diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and her life has been turned upside down. I’m so proud of how she has handled it and think she deserves something special to make her life a bit easier.

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 curates your everyday diabetes set. It's got space for two insulin pens and a blood testing kit, plus pockets for spares and snacks. Flexible loops means it can also flex to fit bigger tech — we're looking at you, Omnipod PDM! 

Life sorted up front

We're not forgetting about life essentials either: SideKYT fits all of your important bits up front (with space for a snack or two). 

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.
