awardHow do you carry your epinephrine auto-injector?  Do you strap it to your leg when you go for a run? Do you tuck it into your purse in a stylish pouch? Or do you wear it discretely under your clothes using a waist pack?

Do your kids prefer a leg case or a shoulder pouch in fun patterns?

Vote for your favorite auto-injector case. These cases were nominated for Best Auto-Injector Case of 2012 by readers of About.com:

Hi there. I carry an epipen as does my daughter (11 yr) and we could never find anything “cool enough” to wear. So I made them out of leather and have since made several for other carriers I know. They are all completely custom and hand made to order. If you see fit please share this with the others who may be looking for soemthing unique and functional at the same time. Thanks.
