Choosing the Right Pouch

There are two types of Coloset pouches to choose from for Colostomy and Ileostomy patients:

- Drainable Pouches put you in control, providing the ability to empty the bag as often as you like and when it’s convenient. The secure tail closure is easy to close and provides maximum security.

- The Closed system is the right choice when you don’t want to empty and reuse your pouch. It’s convenient, secure, quick and easy. It’s also a great choice for times you simply can’t drain a pouch, like when you are traveling or during an intimate moment.

Both pouches have a filter to minimize pouch ‘ballooning’ and help control odour.
