Who Needs A Bag?
Who Needs An HDS MEDALLION® Bag?
HDS Medallion® Designer CarryAll Bags are made for people who use a mobility device or need highly adjustable bags. There are at least three types of such people who value our bags:
- People who use a walker, scooter, wheelchair (manual, electric or transport), power chair, adult/teenage strollers, segways, etc.due to medical/physical circumstances (see below) and who need to carry personal items. At the same time, they want to look stylish and display their individuality, especially women.
- Little People who struggle to find shoulder or handbags sufficient to hold enough stuff, but with short enough straps to keep the bag from hanging too low when they carry them.
- People who use golf carts (electric & push), go cars (i.e. golf carts used as road transportation in some communities), personal carts and baby strollers.

Women & Girls
HDS Medallion® Designer CarryAll Bags were first made for women and girls in a variety of medical circumstances that compel them to use a mobility device. We have customers from 5 year old girls to women in their 90's with all kinds of appearances; from little people to average height, from small to larger sizes; all races and ethnic groups are represented, military and non-military.
Our bags have become increasingly popular with Little People; even those who do not use a mobility device. Our innovative fastening system has highly adjustable straps which provides far greater flexibility in bag handle drop length allowing them to use our bags as shoulder bags that are proportional to their bodies. And for those with mobility devices, primarily scooters, the bags are very visible at the national conference.
Men - Military and Non-Military
HDS Medallion® Universal Bags (introduced in 2016) are designed for men and women who want a solid black bag. But in keeping with our mission to provide stylish, attractive bags, each Universal Bag comes with a detachable band on the front of the bag. In addition, the buyer can select one other band out of 7 that can go on the front for a change in look. We also have additional bands to purchase for other options for customizing the bag.
These same bags will become bags to "honor distinguished service" given by our active military and veterans who use mobility devices especially those injured in wars. These bags will be enhanced by a stunning military medallion that will slide over the band in the center of the bag. We have medallions for Marines, Army, Air Force, Navy and POW/MIA. We're still awaiting approval from the Marines to sell the fabulous medallions. We'll announce them the minute we get that approval!

Meet Sharon and "listen" to her story and experience with an HDS Medallion CarryAll Bag.
Sharon is an active, always on the go individual who rarely sits still and likes to get the most out of each day. From gardening to walking her beloved dog, Griffin, to playing golf -- she looked forward to getting back into the swing of things with her new hip. But she had to use a walker for a while. Her sister made sure she had a great HDS Medallion® Designer CarryAll Bag from the Classic Collection to use as long as she needed it. Here’s Sharon’s take on her bag.
“Who would have thought that at age 54 I would be getting a new hip? The idea of using a walker was quite daunting, and I was so worried it would be totally awkward and frustrating. I can't say enough about how organized and independent I felt once I started using my HDS Medallion® Classic Carry All Bag. I was given the bag as a gift and started to use it immediately. Not only was I feeling stylish, but it had plenty of room to carry my cell phone, Ipad, notepad, H20 bottle and a few personal things. The ease with which you can remove it and take with you anywhere is an added bonus. I would definitely recommend it to anyone and I will continue to use it even after my recovery.”
Update: Sharon recently had to undergo another hip operation to fix a problem. Her sister who bought her the bag reports that she was grateful she had kept her bag and was using it again with her walker.
