I certainly can Jack .
Bought mine on Amazon and it has a central pocket with a Glycol type cool bag that keeps the two pencils nice and cool along with a central zip pocket with needle bags inside and 4/5 external zipped pockets
Look for" Elite bags " and you should find it alright , cost about £20 ish but well worth the money and the knowledge that EVERYTHING you need can be put in their and the insulins stay cool and it doesn't need freezing to maintain its temp even on warm days
I bought some iron on first aid / insulin badges to deter would be muggers from thinking its a general purpose type bum bag accessory and has a shoulder strap if you need it . Laughing
