A FRÍO® needs only water to activate, easy for when you're on the move. Most diabetes nurses and doctors advise keeping in-use insulin cool to maintain its effectiveness.
Read on to see what our customers have said about the FRÍO® and how it helps in every day situations and during travel.
I use the Frio bags for my Beta Interferon
I just wanted to say how wonderful your product is. I use the Frio bags for my Beta Interferon and this has enabled me to live my life as freely as possible. It meant that trekking for 2 months in a warm country was absolutely no issue. Anyone who gives me freedom should be thanked.

Note: it is strongly recommended that extended travel plans of more than 28 days be discussed with your nurse or GP as should the availability of a 'fridge on your travels. Medications must be at the manufacturer's recommended temperature before being placed in the FRIO® wallet. Please check the manufacturer's information leaflet for your specific medication.
Himalayan Expedition, Tibet, New Zealand and Nepal
I thought I would write to you and give you some feedback about Frio Wallets. I wrote to you in 2006 when I was about to set out on my first Himalayan Expedition (reaching 5,300m). Your Frio products kept my insulin well and working, including one sub zero night when I forgot my insulin outside my tent! I have since climbed several times in Tibet, Nepal and New Zealand with confidence using your Frio Wallets. I have even summited the Nandi La in Tibet - a gruelling 16 hour, 34km trek reaching 6,100m altitude. Many thanks for your fine products!

Three Month Europe Trip
I wanted to let you know that I used your large wallet to store 9 containers of insulin for a three months trip over all of Europe from Bremerhaven to the southern tip of Corsica. We traveled by motorcycle and sidecar and camped or stayed in hotels in every kind of temperature and humidity. I was not able to use a refrigerator. I hydrated the wallet every 2-3 days and kept it in the wind behind me as I drove the motorcycle everyday. I put it in the tent out of the sun and in hotel rooms left it on the counter in the bathrooms. Your wallet worked superbly. My insulin was in perfect condition. I am not over stating when I say I would stake my life on your product.

We live in Greece where summers are scorching..
We live in Greece where summers are scorching - FRIO is not available locally so we had to order through your user-friendly website. The item arrived quickly and was put to use immediately. My niece who is insulin-dependent can now safely spend her days at the beach without worrying about her medication. Thank you FRIO team.
