[IPk] Re: Swimming / Sportsguard

The MM sportsguard is fully waterproof , robust and floats .
It is normally only worn for sailing or combat sports to protect the pump .
Actually few people choose to use it as they all prefer to disconnect unless
they are sailing or windsurfing for long periods .
I've never heard of problems with it leaking , it has a seal which closes
tighly around the catheter .

I admit that it isn't very pretty but I do believe it to be functional .
