We've had some hot days here in NYC as well.  I go for a walk every 
day after lunch, even when it's 95 degrees, and have the pump in my 
pocket.  I have air conditioning at work and in my bedroom at home, 
but nowhere else in my apartment.  I keep the pump in my pocket 
almost all the time.  I used to clip it to my bra but since I lost 
weight, I don't have anything to hide it between and can't put it 
there anymore.

Last summer I kept my open vial of Humalog in a Frio pouch but I 
can't find it, and my insulin has been fine.  It takes me a month to 
use one vial, so it's sitting in a plastic container in my backpack 
for 30 days.
