    Need a decent wheelchair bag

    Why is it impossible to find a good wheelchair bag? It's like...they took a leftover backpack and forced it to hang on the back of a wheelchair.

    -- Gnarlodious, who spelled it out because the registration page truncated it.

    I did a brief stint as a designer for what is now ACTION wheelchairs, designing their upholstery and accessory bags; I've also custom designed one or two wheelchair backpacks for friends over the years.
    The rather huge challenge with wheelchair bags is that so many wheelchairs have such radically different backsides: building some universal-fit attaching system is pretty much impossible (so far). That's why the companies that make wheelchair bags end up with such crumby compromises.
    While it is not in our product line currently, we would consider doing wheelchair bags if we were approached by someone who has developed a system for attachment that we could integrate into our bags.
