I have bought regular bags for the side of my power wheelchair for many years. They stuck out too far and got caught going in and of doors. The other day I found a bag that finally works: The Handy Bag with a slimming look. It has three zipper compartments with loop rings that make it easy to open and close for people like myself who have only good use of one hand. It has two side compartments that fit a small water bottle. My 27 ounce Klean Kanteen water bottle doesn't fit in the compartment but it fits in the zipper compartment. I think the side compartments are great to keep my lipstick, comb and a packaged snack. The bag has sturdy straps and clips to keep the bag in place. Overall, it works great for my Permobil F3. I think it fits on most power wheelchairs.
Being an Incomplete C5 - 7 Quad and in a powered wheelchair for a number of years, I have lost count of the bags I have tried and found unsuitable for my needs. Now with the Side Handy Bag I have finally one that not only fits a lot of my "stuff" but also fits my requirements as well.
If you're anything like me, you are fiercely independent and have spent hundreds, if not thousands, trying to find a bag that works for you and your power wheelchair. Look no further.I got this bag as part of the Kickstarter campaign, and it is hands down the best bag I have ever had. It fits perfectly between the arm rest and the fender, no dragging on the wheel. It holds 2 water bottles, my service dog's collapsable water dish, wallet, checkbook, reading glasses, keys, papers...
The price may seem a little steep, but we are a niche market without volume sales. And for me, it is a drop in the bucket of what I have spent chasing that "perfect bag."
