A new slip-on ostomy belt fromStealth?

Posted by warrior, on Sun Oct 20, 2019 4:12 pm

news flash... this just in....... tick tick tick tick......  apparently  a company has joined up with makers of the sleathbelt and now have devloped a "slip-on" type of belt with  accessible drainage zipper. it looks alot more sleek than the velcro type but  i just visited the web site... and they are still only showing that stupid  velcro type belt.. i sent them email about  where the slip on vid is and i wanna see  it before i look further into ordering one..   ($103.00 a pop! US). I doubt anyone has purchased this  slip on yet. if u have do tell. pros and cons.... thanks. warrior on the warpath.

Hi warrior,

  Do they say who the other company is that they've joined with?  I checked stealth belt's site but didn't see anything about a slip-on type belt. Maybe I missed it.  Let me know where on the site you saw it.

Thanks,

Bob

Hi warrior,

  Thanks for the message.  I poked around the web a little last night and came to find there are a LOT of copy-cat Stealth Belts out there, most for around half what Stealth Belt charges.  I'm sure there are subtle (or maybe not so subtle) differences, but I didn't find any "slip-on" style.  They all had similar construction.  Someone on here said they had 2 Stealth Belts and offered to send me one to check out.  I'll dig up that old post and contact that person and see if I can borrow one.  I can then make a copy and run down to Joanne's Fabrics and pick up a piece of neoprene and make my own, and maybe customize it a little.  I can also poke around for better material choices as well.  So thanks for making the effort.  I'll post if I make any progress.

thanks,

bob

Warrior,

  Guess what popped into my inbox this morning...............the slip-on Stealth Belt!  Here's the link;

https://www.stealthbelt.com/slip-on-belt?utm_source=bronto&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=slip-on_style_announcement&_bta_tid=32839930275476425875794482317086479930899778970586251008811271120663860947442782832064391290132987551754

  I didn't have a chance to read the whole thing, but I think it's designed to be worn WITH a Stealth Belt.  Will check it out later, but wanted to let you know you weren't going nuts. 

 

regards,

bob

Yea co co..for coco puffs nuts. I am getting ads now for the slip on belt at 89 dollars.  It looks like a fat rubber band-- 5 inches wide.

Hi warrior,

  Thanks man.  I just tried to message you my address, but it's a new month and they haven't assigned the 10 free montly memberships yet........so it won't let me do it.  I'd put my address out here but then all the ostomates who get pissed with me will be hurling full bags of shit on my front lawn.  So as soon as I get access to private messaging again I'll shoot you my address.  Just let me know what it costs to ship and I'll send you the bucks either in cash or via Paypal, whatever works for ya.  I won't screw it up, I just want to see  how they construct it, so I'll flip it inside out and trace the parts on paper so I can make material patterns.  Then I can get it right back to you.  I appreciate the offer. 

thanks,

bob
