3 Things to Consider When Choosing a Prosthetic Leg Bag
Whether you own a running blade or have travel plans this holiday season, and you can’t go through the airport screening wearing your prosthetic leg, having a decent leg bag can offer you the ease and mobility that you want.
If you already own a prosthetic leg bag or you can borrow from someone else, then you don’t need to get a new one. However, if you’re thinking of replacing your old leg bag, then this article is for you. Here we break down the top three features you need for a protective leg bag that can also keep your prosthetic supplies organized.
What to look for in a prosthetic leg bag
Since you’ve already invested so much in your prosthesis, going the extra mile to make sure that your leg is well-protected is always the best choice. Here are some things you need to consider when looking for a reliable bag:
1. The right size
Buying a prosthetic leg bag is a personal choice. It comes down to how often you travel or if you need a leg bag when you head to the gym or track. Some prosthetic leg bags on the market are available in either one-size-fits-all or two sizes, perfect for below-knee and above-knee prostheses.
2. Extensive padding
Having a prosthetic leg bag with extensive padding means your prosthesis will be well-protected from external elements. We love the Amputee Essentials Prosthetic Leg Bag. This leg bag is lined with exceptionally thick padding, plus it comes with a secondary padded internal drawstring bag for extra protection. With padding as extensive as this, your leg is safe even from the most reckless baggage handlers.

3. Various carrying options
Just like any other travel bag, a leg bag should allow for versatile handling to accommodate any travel situation. The Amputee Essentials Prosthetic Leg Bag is the perfect travel companion as it can be carried as a backpack or a duffel bag. It also features padded and adjustable shoulder straps for comfort.

Furthermore, Amputee Essentials thoughtfully positioned the handles slightly off-center to prevent your heavy prosthetic foot or knee from throwing your bag off-kilter.
