Re: [IP] Minimed Sport Guard is it worth $49?



I sail and i use the sport guard and have for two years. i sail in the ocean
on a one person dingy so i am constantly capsising and submerging my pump.
If you keep the seal lubricated then it wont leak, and the case has taken
some pretty bad hits while in the water. I have also swam with my pump, off
a dock, again in the ocean, swimming down at least 10 feat or more, again it
has never leaked or kinked or given me any sort of problem. The problems in
the emails that i have read all could of been caused because of improper
use, weather it being lubrication of the seal or improper installation of
the pump into the case. If you are in water at all the sport case provides a
firm sence of security against leaking or dammage if used properly, and i
would consider it worth $49.
