I remember seeing them somewhere but cant remember where.
But I did make my own out of a old pair of sweat pants. Here is a url of pics I took to show someone else of a pouch cover in the making.

It looks like a kewl idea, but it holds the pouch horizontal not vertical, which to me looks like it wouldn't fill properly, and since I have active crohns I have to empty mine several times a day as it is.
I did send an email to them asking about that.
Thx for the ifo

HI
I am new here!
I have been using belts forever now ... it really helps to hold the pouch & helps me worry less about leaks & stuff
