NefCase EpiPen Case: Product Review

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Summertime is here and that means we’re going to waterparks, rivers, pools, and ponds.  My kids love waterparks and fishing!  Sometimes the tricky part to these destinations is keeping the EpiPens with us, but at the proper temperature, safe, and dry.  Here’s where the NefCase comes in handy!

NefCase EpiPen case: Product Review~Mom Vs. Food Allergy

Here’s what I like about the NefCase:

  • It’s waterproof.  If it’s accidentally dropped in a pool, no worries!
  • It’s strong.  Think Nalgene bottle, but thicker.  That’s pretty tough.
  • It’s child-resistant.  It’s like the top of a medicine bottle, so easy for mature hands to open.
  • It’s roomie.  There’s room to fold up an Allergy Action Plan and insert it in with the EpiPen.
  • It comes with a clip.  I like the carabiner clip that it comes with….perfect for hooking to the second NefCase you should purchase along with your first.
  • Made in the USA.  Minnesota is it’s home base.

Here’s what I don’t like about the NefCase:

  • It’s a single unit.  You have to buy two to be safe.  ALWAYS CARRY TWO EPINEPHRINE AUTO-INJECTORS AT ALL TIMES.  Sorry for the all-caps, but I’m pretty passionate about encouraging people to always carry two.
  • It’s bulky.  We all know EpiPens are bulky without an extra case, but this product will be perfect for excursions or those with curious young children.

Overall, I think this product is very handy and helpful.  Check out their website and story and see if this is something you need to purchase before a trip to the beach or pool.

**All opinions are my own.  I was not paid for this product review of NefCase, but was provided one unit for the purpose of this review.

  1. Hm, they gave their kid a trainer to play with instead of telling him never to play with the EpiPens, and then decided it would be lucrative to put child-proof caps on them? Weird story, I’m sorry. I doubt my kid could have opened the actual EpiPen case flip top when he was young enough to do that sort of thing, and now that he’s actually old enough to know what the EpiPen does, he stays far away from it. Also, as the allergists always tell us, being injected is perfectly safe, so even in the worst-case scenario if a kid got one open and injected someone, it would be unpleasant but not harmful. If they can make a childproof case for those guns that toddlers keep shooting people with, that might be a worthy project…
    I keep my EpiPens, albuterol inhaler, Benadryl, and allergy plan in a ZipLoc bag which is big and annoying to lug around, but waterproof and perfectly functional in every other way. Maybe NefCase would be useful for people who are hiking and only need to carry Epis. The problem you point out about keeping the kit out of extreme temperatures is the only real problem I have, but I don’t think this product helps with that, does it?

    • I agree, this product would be really helpful for those around water/hiking a lot. We use FRIO carrying cases to keep our EpiPens at the proper temp while in the heat, but the FRIO couldn’t be used with this product. I’m sure some will find it really useful, though.
