  • How do I decide which style is right for me or my loved one? The elastic strap is ideal to wear cross-body and for younger children who are always on the move and want their auto-injector highly visible. It could also be worn around the waist/hip but that decision would need to be made at time of purchase as the sizing is not the same for both crossbody and waist/hip. The adjustable belt strap is suited to be worn around the waist/hip or crossbody so it is a little bit more flexible in that regard. The clip only option is best for adults or teens to clip onto a belt loop, purse or backpack.  

  • How do I know what size I need to fit the wearer? Please refer to our SIZING CHART. If you are still unsure or do not find a size that is suitable for you, please contact us at info@epicute.ca  

  • Can I take the auto-injector out of its protective tube?  The auto-injector should remain in the protective tube (as issued from the pharmacy) when carried in the epicute pouch.

  • Do I need to be mindful of temperature? The medication should be kept between 15-30 degrees celsius, so you should be mindful of that and act accordingly. The pouch should be worn/carried at all times and not left in direct sunlight. In cold weather, the pouch should be tucked underneath a jacket. We also offer an INSULATED POUCH that will help to maintain a consistent temperature, but care should still be taken. Epicute Inc. is not liable for any misuse of the medication used.

  • What is your association with the epinephrine auto-injector or asthma inhaler manufacturers? No epinephrine auto-injector or asthma inhaler manufacturers/affiliates/subsidiaries sponsor or endorse the products referenced or sold on these web pages.  Epicute Inc. is not liable for misuse of the medication used.
