    Thanks Gus Gear!

    Our little Aussie daughter has been wearing Gus Gear central line vests 24/7 since we discovered them after she pulled two lines out.
    We recently bought the new design vest and after they arrived I needed to seek assistance.
    Gus Gear’s after-sale support was exemplary. I received genuine interest in solving our problem. In no time, I received custom-made modifications that solved our particular problem, with no additional cost or shipping requested.
    Thank you so much, Gus Gear.

    Awesome customer service

    These people are great. I purchased this for a grandaughter. Had some follow up questions/concerns as to use after the purchase. They satisfied all issues promptly and courteously. Will definitely return when grandaughter outgrows the current vest

    So pleased!

    We just got our vest today and I am so pleased with it! It feels well-made, sturdy and like we’ll be able to count on it for preventing line damage. Originally we ordered up in size because her measurements were at the end of the spectrum for the size she fit into. It ended up being the wrong size and it just didn’t work for our little one, but with this one everything feels just right and she isn’t bothered at all by it.

    We’re so grateful for Gus Gear. It’s so important to have access to these products to keep her line safe! Highly recommend!

    Would highly recommend!

    We have purchased multiple items from Gus Gear for our daughter who has a central line, ostomy, and g-tube. We have always been super satisfied with the product, especially the central line vests! Knowing that our daughter’s line is always protected with these vests is very comforting. Gus Gear has been wonderful to work with and I have recommended it to many people! Thank you Gus Gear for making products that help keep our kiddos safe!

    Love the upgraded version of the central line vest!

    We have used Gus Gear central line wraps for approximately 7 years for our daughter Ava, who has a broviac line. We were a little hesitant and nervous to try the new design since we loved the original wraps so much. We definitely like the new ones and plan to order additional ones soon! In Ava’s words, “It’s different….but it’s GOOD!” According to Ava, she likes that the new vest does not have Velcro in the middle of her back that could catch on her shirt. We both really like how the new vest can be adjusted for fit in several different areas. Thank you Gus Gear for continuing to evolve and improve to help so many patients!

    One Less Thing to Worry About During Cancer Treatment

    After talking about our troubles with his needle and port during the 24 hour chemo treatments (and multiple days hooked up to and iv 24/7), one of Colton’s pediatric oncology nurses recommended your product and showed me your website in clinic. Just wanted to say how great your vest worked for our crazy toddler. Our last stay 2 weeks ago we had 3 painful needle and port mishaps from my son pulling the lines, this time there were none and we felt more relaxed knowing if he pulled or stepped on his line was secured by the vest and wouldn’t pull on the needle. Colton and his mom say thank you!

    A Must Have!

    Prior to GusGear my daughter had many issues with broken lines, lost claves, loose dressings. It was a nightmare trying to keep her line safe and we were always worried about infection. Since wearing the vest we have had no broken lines and we have peace of mind and security. She has the opportunity to be a kid again! Everyone with a central line should have one!

    Our daughter had to have a central line placed about 8 months ago when she was 16 months old. This was all new to myself and husband. We had no clue all the care that goes into having a central line. We were introduced to Gus Gear through the local Children’s Hospital. All I can say is what a lifesaver the central line vest is. It has given us piece of mind that her line is protected and her line is secure. We have not had one issue with her line breaking her needing repair. She loves her vest and calls her central line “her tubies”. Nothing but great things about this product and the care and detail that has gone into making the product. Anyone that has a central should invest in the vest- it truly is a lifesaver!

    Central Line Vest Protects

    After having a line break in the hospital, we realized we needed better protection for our then six-month-old’s central line. The central line wrap protects her line from breaking and it also protects the Broviac dressing. We had been doing bi-weekly dressing changes because the dressing kept falling off, but since we started using the wrap, we are back to a weekly dressing change schedule.

    Having used the wraps every single day for over four years, we have experienced firsthand how they keep our little one’s line safe. Even when she is connected to her backpack, she plays chase with her sisters, jumps on the trampoline, and goes to gymnastics class without fear of pulling or breaking her central line. In our four and a half years using gus gear, we’ve never had to replace the line because of any line trauma.

    Everyone should use Gus Gear’s central line wrap! We cannot imagine life without it!

    My daughter has worn the vest since we found it a year after she got her central line. We tried a different brand but it did not work well and she ended up needing a line repair with it. Since using the vest though she hasn’t had any issues. I love that the updated vest closes on the sides and how I can remove it mid infusion if need be. It is very adjustable providing a good fit and closes on the side so no more Velcro rubbing on the back of her shirt. In fact, no Velcro rubbing anywhere. On top of that the material is a little thicker but more breathable. I like the slightly thicker option as I usually pin her g tube extension to the wrap with a diaper pin after tabbing the tape and with this material it holds up very well, no pin holes wearing into it and I don’t have to worry about going through to her central line (very anal about that so it has never happened). I truly love this updated vest!

    Thanks Gus Gear!

    We bought my daughter Lila a central line vest a few weeks ago and are already completely dependent on it. Healthy development for Lila means becoming aware of her fingers and toes, tugging and pulling and putting EVERYTHING in her mouth – including her central line. I searched for a central line vest in desperation – it wasn’t sustainable to constantly be watching her little hands to make sure she wasn’t going to yank on her line. That’s when I found Gus Gear. Her little vest is sooo cute, soft and noninvasive. Thanks Gus Gear, now I can relax a little!
