      Hollister 9805 for almost 15 years. Has the flip valve which makes it easy drain if you have impaired finger function.

          Conveen 5174 and I like the drain because it is flat and not easy to kick open when legs spazz out but still easy to flip open and closes securely. Me and twist drains just don't get along.

            Yep, Urocare 9532. Basically the same bag I've been using since the mid 70's.

              I use the Urocare 44 oz reusable with cloth/foam straps and the lever clamp drain. I put the top strap above my knee and run the bag over my knee or down the side. I fold the bag at the bottom (just above the drain) and tuck the drain tube under the bottom foam strap.

                    I would like to see Coloplast re-issue the Freedom bags. Much better than anything else on the market for me. As a walker, I liked the fact that the tube could be hidden out of sight in its pouch. No so with that shitty Conveen bag. Any tube hanging down can visible when I get out of my chair or getting out of a vehicle. For a professional office worker as I am, discretion is a much needed option.

                        Have you tried tucking the tube up and under the strap? You would have to pull it out to drain, then tuck it back under the strap.

                          Because the reuseable ones on the market are made of latex, which I am allergic to, I recently started using a Hollister vented leg bag, and it has worked great. I also use Bard leg bags once in a while with flip flow valve.

                            Thanks for the response, Kulea. I am kinda concerned about the tube/drain leaving marks on my leg. Any problems with this? As a somewhat walker, will the walking move the bag to spot where the skin could be in trouble?

                            Thanks for your help!

                              No harm in trying it and experimenting. If the strap is too tight, you might have some marks, and you might even get a blister. But, if that is the case, the strap is probably cutting off your circulation anyway. You might get a small indentation on your skin, but this goes away soon after taking off the strap, and I don't think it is anything to be concerned about. I have worn my tube strap this way for 30 years. I don't walk, but I would think walking would help by keeping up the circulation. And, you could periodically, move the tube to a slightly different spot if this bothers you. If you use a cloth strap, you might be able to tuck it between where the two sides of the strap overlap, so that it isn't being pressed directly against your skin.
