Great for young adults

I love my vest! I am 18 years old, 6’0 and 170 pounds and the size 6 is a perfect fit. This vest protects my broviac during my active day with friends!

comfortable vest that gives us peace of mind for an active 6 year old

This vest keeps everything in place and safe during the day while our little one is feeling active. It makes him feel like he can do whatever his siblings/buddies are up to. We get peace of mind!

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!

These are the very best fit and quality of any made.

I found these about a year after my diagnoses, and very glad I did. Make me feel a lot more confident and fit and quality is perfect!! I have tried others to be very disappointed. Great Job Sarah!!

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!

Your pouch covers are the best. I just had my permanent ileostomy and I ordered pouch covers from several different sites. Yours, by far, are the best. I love the designs too. Your covers are AWESOME!!!!!! Having a cover that fits my bag like a glove is such a Blessing! I truly believe you are doing God’s work by helping people with ileostomies. Xxxooo

Absolutely love the central line wraps. My son is 5 and has worn one 24/7 since he was 3 months old. He has had 2 lines his entire life and 0 line infections and I think a huge part of that is due to these wraps! Sarah is so helpful, accommodating with any special requests I’ve had!

Received the covers today, and they are perfect!! The skeletons and snowmen are really cute! (and the nude ones are really practical.) And the covers you made me for my smaller swimming bags worked great when we were on vacation! They look fabulous with my swimsuits!!

Love being able to keep my daughter’s G-tube covered up and not have the line dangling, getting caught on everything. The fabric is so soft and comfortable that she doesn’t mind wearing it at all!

My daughter loves her G-tube wrap! She just recently had a peg j-tube placed and it is not very stable and she is stressed about it getting pulled. These wraps have been great at keeping the tube in place! Thank you!

My son has a very complex medical condition, requiring IV infusions almost 24 hrs a day, through a central line catheter. Despite the seriousness of his medical condition, my son is also a very active child who enjoys jumping on the trampoline, roughhousing with his siblings and playing with classmates at recess. Prior to using the Gus Gear’s Central Line Wrap, my son had multiple line breaks and central line infections, including a serious septic episode. We began using the Central Line Wrap 8 years ago. In those last 8 years, my son has not had a single central line break or line infection. Gus Gear’s Central Line Wrap keeps my son’s central line cleaner as it’s covered and away from his g-tube and ostomy. My son’s central line is completely secure, using the Central Line Wrap, giving me peace of mind and allowing my son to enjoy life to the fullest. It has truly changed our lives!

Every now and again I come across something that I feel I must share with others. While there are lots of great products that I have mentioned over the years, my first pouch cover from Gus Gear is among my favorites. The craftsmanship that went into the pouch cover is amazing compared to others out there. Sarah at Gus Gear has thought of everything between the draw string to tighten the cover around my 2 piece flange, the material on the back of the cover, the closure at the bottom, and the slots in the back of the cover for an ostomy belt to keep both the appliance and pouch cover close. It is without a doubt the most perfect pouch cover, one in which gave me the courage to go to the pool with my sun, with my shirt off almost eager to display my new accessory. I got so excited I’ve ordered some fabric online and am working with Sarah on several custom pouch covers. If you are looking for a pouch cover you owe it to yourself to check out.

You have been fantastic to work with, thanks for being so customer friendly! So many companies are frustrating to work with and it’s refreshing to deal with someone who cares about what the end consumer thinks.

Thanks Gus Gear! Mikenzee’s line covers and Joey bag cover (which I’m using to cover her bile bag) arrived today. She is looking less medical already. And we are looking forward to a tangle free night! Wonderful customer service, I purchased these on the 13th of March and received them today, 10 days later all the way over in Australia. Very happy customer!

Love my daughter’s new Joey bag covers! She looks so stylish and less medical now and she really likes that! The covers are so soft and absorbent and I like the place for the ice pack. It really helps keep the formula cool in the summer!

This Pump Bag Cover has saved me from getting up at night to refill my son’s formula bag since I can put an ice pack in with it. What a great idea – thank you!

I wanted to once again thank you for these wonderful central line wraps. Our Evie is 9 months old and is on the move all the time. Before purchasing these wraps, we had to get her dressing changed every couple of days because it was pulling out. We have been alternating the three central line wraps we bought for over a week now and the line has stayed nice and snug under the dressing! Such a blessing! With how important it is to keep this site clean and intact, these wraps have definitely been the answer. Thanks again!

So glad we found these line covers for my son! Finally, no more worries about him getting his line tightly wrapped around his neck at night!!

These line covers are awesome at keeping all my daughter’s lines from getting tangled! They used to be such a jumbled mess all the time, but they aren’t any more, thanks to your covers. I love that I can pick exactly the length I want for them too!

We LOVE the central line wraps and use them daily for our 2-year-old daughter that is TPN dependent.  We love them so much that we recently ordered several new ones in the next size up.  Gus Gear central line wraps have helped keep our daughter’s Broviac line in place and infection free since we started using them over a year and a half ago.  These wraps are especially helpful when worrying about lines being pulled on by an active infant and toddler and/or keeping young children’s hands away from the dressing and site. This product is durable, comfortable, and has held up wonderfully through daily wear and tear and multiple washings.  The unique design of this wrap allows for quick and easy access when we need to infuse TPN, IV medications, or complete weekly labs (especially convenient during inpatient hospital stays).

Our home health nurses and nurses in the hospital constantly RAVE about how convenient and protective this wrap is for any patient with a central line.  I would recommend this to anyone that has a child with a central line, especially a Broviac.
