Ostomysecrets logoOstomysecrets is a big name when it comes to clothing made for ostomates.  Undergarments, swimwear and wraps are their specialty, and they have some of the most well-made products around.  I had the pleasure of receiving their Unisex Classic Wrap as a complimentary gift following their webinar titled “Putting the Pieces Together After Ostomy Surgery” back in early April.  I’ve heard such great things about their products, but since shipping is limited to the United States and a few European countries, I never had the opportunity to buy any of their products before.

Ostomy Vent filter (for Osto EZ-Vent) – REVIEW

The other week, I reviewed the Osto EZ-Vent product and had given it a very favorable review.  One of the only concerns with the EZ-Vent is that the gas which escapes it is at full-strength, since there is no filter to neutralize the odors.   One innovative company aims to find a solution to that problem by offering a small filter to add to the Osto EZ-Vent.

I’ve tried these filters and I offer up my review for them below.
