Who Needs An HDS MEDALLION® Bag?
HDS Medallion® 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 were very visible by the time the national conference ended.
Pictured here, one lady found the perfect bag in our Demi Pink Paisley which she converted into a proportional cross-body bag. Looks great!
The two women both chose our Zebra Daisy Dot Bags for their scooters. One even purchased a second bag the next day!
Men - Military and Non-Military
HDS Medallion® Universal Bags (being introduced in 2016) are designed 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 for each branch of service. For non-military men (and women), the bag can be used without the medallion. We're awaiting approval from the Marines to sell the fabulous medallions. We'll announce them the minute we get that approval! If you would like to be notified when our universal bags are available, go to Contact Us page and sign-up for our newsletter.

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.”
