I just ordered a Stealth belt (it was shipped today) I am going on vacation in two weeks and want to be able to swim and what not. I have herd good things from my Ostomy nurse about it (why I ordered one) I was just wondering if anyone else has one and what they thought. If not I will update you all on how it work and the pros and cons when I get it. I will be trying it out in Hawaii soon =) wish me luck.

someone on here has one and i think they really like it. Others have tried it and weren't impressed. I looked at it and didn't think it was anything i really needed.
I wear a sureseal and just tuck my bag up for swimming.
have fun!

Is this something that you have to pay out of pocket for or does insurance usually cover it? I was thinking about getting one for when I go back to work.

That is a great question. I payed out of the pocket for it, but I never did check to see if insurance would pay for it (I just amused they would not) But it is worth checking into.

My pouch has never been a problem at the beach (or any of the sports I do)...I just tuck up the bottom and it stays put in my bathing suit or shorts.

If you haven't tried a Sure Seal (waterproof and breathable), you may want to get a sample. They do a really good job of protecting the wafer from sweat and water:) Last time I went to the Cape I swam everyday and ran my normal distances and didn't have to change my appliance because the wafer failing:)

Make sure you give your review after you get the belt!!!
