The Wheelchair Luggage Problem

There is a little known thing called ‘The Wheelchair Luggage Problem”. The problem is niche problem of more generic one – namely that wheelchair user never have a free pair of hands.

Our hands are always in use. Meaning that we struggle to carry, lift or push anything else but our chair. “The Wheelchair Luggage Problem” is just a niche of that.

While everyone else is touting those spacious, yet small, carry on bags – you’re there pushing along thinking, “damn, I wish I could use something like that.”

Well recently I went on a short break to Tenerife to visit a friend. The flight was hand luggage only, which left me considering ‘The Wheelchair Luggage Problem.”

Now I’m use to carrying a backpack most places. So I figured if I could find a bag that was a backpack, I’d be good! So I search around and found the Cabin Max Metz – I did a full review that you can read here.

The Mertz worked really well but as I said in my review – it doesn’t entirely solve ‘The Wheelchair Luggage Problem.” This is mostly because if you want quickly grab your tablet, book or laptop that isn’t so easy. So I got thinking what else I could take with me to fix this.

Now on most flights – you are also allowed to take a bag that can go under the seat. But that is another bag right? So, we’re back to the ‘Wheelchair Luggage Problem” because I still don’t have a free pair of hands.

Trabasack Curve Connec Blue v2

Enter Trabasack – my answer to where you stash the tech that you want in flight. Pretty much all products in the Trabasack range can sit securely on your lap while the Mertz is on your back. This leaves your hands free to do what they need to.

So there you have it – the answer to “The Wheelchair Luggage Problem”, combined the Metz with a Trabasack and you are good to go!

Hi Everyone

This luggage is also a solution to the wheelchair luggage problem.
This is a luggage system for wheelchair users that makes it dead easy to move heavy bags while also pushing a wheelchair.

It’s designed so that even when fully loaded your chair won’t tip back and you can move around just as easily as usual, you can even wheelie the chair with the bag attached.
