Is there any way to purchase an e-belt in the U.S.? The only web site I see is Canadian. Does anyone have another option?

This is the site I ordered my sons from:
Its manufactured in Canada but it looks like they will ship to the US - go to the shop online link.

I bought my sons e-belt though the Candian website with no problems. We love the quality of this belt. I recommend it. My DS is a very active 6 year old and it is holding up well to all his activities.

The cost seems really high for an item like this. With S&H it's close to $100.
Are there any other options? My son is 6.

We bought an ebelt for my son when he started JK. I thought it was a little pricey too at the time. He is now in grade 4 and still using the same ebelt. It was well worth the money. It's a well made product and he has worn it every school day, inside and outside.
Hope this helped a bit.

[url="http://www.medicalert.ca"]http://www.medicalert.ca[/url] as well as [url="http://www.anaphylaxis.ca"]http://www.anaphylaxis.ca[/url] also carry the e-belt , I personally have the medic alert kids belt , I have had it for four years , my child wears it to school ,it is in great shape, and a very indestructable type, as well the velcro closure is very strong.

I found this on the FAAN website
This site has a couple different carriers too -
And this one seems to be more of what you are wanting -
I also found this at MedicAlert but I think you might have to be a member?

We got ours through:
We got the double that lays flat against the waist. My son has had it for 3 1/2 years. It is so durable. It also expands to always fit. It cost a fortune, and I think it was worth every penny.
