      I just went to Target and picked one out. Ended up with an Eddie Bauer one that works great.

        I got a nice Kelty backpack (they make some great hiking packs). I had my mom take the shoulder straps, detach them at the bottom, shorten them up and resew them half way up the back. It hangs off my chair perfectly, centered and snug against my seatback, and very easy to get into by reaching back.

          I use this one from Case Logic. It's WC specidic, easy to remove, has a "secret pocket" for cath supplies, oversized zips...it's great

            I just use a regular backpack and hang it from the knubs where my pushandles used to be attached.

              Hi!
              I got a sling style backpack from, of all places, The Gap. It slings over my chair back, which is the upholstery type, and just hangs. It has come to be called the "Magic Pack" since I somehow fit incredible amounts of groceries and such (such as a gallon of milk, 14lb bag of cat food, spag sauce, and then some various smaller flexable items). It has a large pocket, and a smaller one, each with a zipper on the side. Small one holds a catheter and a bottle (my porta potty- hehehe!).

              I am planning a new chair, and have a feeling this bag will hang too low. I also want one that will hold a 15" MacBook Pro very safely. Need to be able to get it on an doff my chair easily. Any ideas?

              (gonna miss using my Gap one...simply incredible pack mule...)

                  Chair Pack

                  Like most of us I had been using a soft cloth material bag that closed via zippers. It hung on the back of my manual and power chairs. I tied several, all of which were basically unhandy, unsightly and unzipperable. Fortunately I am able to reach around to the rear of my chair to access a bag. Late last year I had an equine saddle maker, using my design/specifications, stich me a bag from heavy stiff leather. Because it is stiff, the bag does not sag in any way. The seams are on the outside, thus no hand snags or abrasions from retrieving goodies. There are interior elastic bands to hold my wallet, glasses and other small items that I use frequently. The stiching is extremely tough, don't believe I could rip it apart by hand. The top is closed by magnet--no #%##@& zippers to contend with--that is a a real blessing. I am so satisfied that I am having a second bag custom made for "Sparky" my power chair. My bag's dimensions are: 15" length, 8" deep and 5" wide.

                    Quickie makes a good back pack IMO has several compartments, pocket outside for cell phone , water bottle. It has worked well for me.

                    Quickie makes it but it will go on any chair with canes . handles. This one is on amazon but a google search for " Quickie Backpack" will give yopu a lot of hits.

                      If money is not an issue, check this out. Boblbee wheelchair backpack.
                      I haven't been able to find a US dealer, only found one in Japan.
                      I think they sell upwards of $300 USD.

                        I just use a sinch sack, I have at least 20 different ones--some have pockets on the outside, some inside, and some just one large pocket.

                        They hand great off the back of my chairs, easy to lift off and plenty of room. I carry my apple computer in it's neoprene case in it all the time. They are cheap can find them raning from 5.99 to 15.99 and easily washable, changable. i loved purses before the accident so this I" guess is the closest I can get back to macthing a purse to my outfit since a purse is impractical on my lap all the time.
