Does anyone know of a waterproof case for the epipen/twinjet so it can be carried with the person when swimming at a pool or lake, etc. I don't feel comfortable leaving it behind on the beach with your blanket, etc.

I've gotta run to a doctor's appointment, so I don't have time to search this right now.

But, there is a pouch used for boating and swimming which is waterproof. It's designed to carry things like your wallet and keys -- but they do come big enough to carry an epi-pen. They are available in sporting-goods stores.
