Default Looking for a bag to carry one-handed

Backpacks kill my back. Shoulder bags kill my shoulder and have an annoying tendency to feel like they are sliding off.

What I am looking for is something I can carry with one hand that when placed on the ground will sit upright

If there isn't anything designed for this specifically, a small bag (8-12 discs) that will sit independently should work.

Ideally it would have an ~8" strap that I could grab with one hand and picking it up wouldn't re-situate the contents. Do any small bags have structural integrity?

I have been using the small Magellan bag but it does not sit upright most of the time and I would like something with a little more storage and better materials. I am not looking to break the bank though on a Revo Mini, <$40 would be ideal.

Any suggestions?

I recently was given the "Innova Standard Disc Golf Bag" http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/pr...803&cadevice=c


with the strap shorten all the way, I still felt the strap was too long to pick and walk with while not slinging it over the shoulder. I am currently using safety pins to shorten the strap so if feels better to pick up and walk with, and the bag doesn't swing too much.

The bag does seem to hold up very well (concerning the structural integrity) for about 12 disc, and stays upright, disc divided, etc. it doesn't fall over or anything. I can not comment on how long the materials will hold up, but i have taken it out around 10 times, and nothing is fallin apart.

No lie, go look into a smallish 'soft' (fabric) tackle box. Will prob hold 8-12 discs, have a top handle, side pockets, etc and only cost 25-45.

My first bag was a small Craftsmen tool bag that I carried, had a small handle.

Could try an Innova standard bag (it will stand on it's own) then go to a thrift store, paw through the computer bags/miscellaneous odd bags and you'll probably find the handle that would work for dollar or two.

OR make a paracord handle exactly the right size.
Tackle/tool bags make a lot of sense.

Carry on luggage bag with wheels and a retractable handle. Can just carry it or roll it if the terrain allows for it.

I have been considering this one for some time. I will be this one up unless something more apt pops up. Good to know it stands on its own. Thanks.

Wow, there are some cool ones. Will pop into a sporting good store and check them out in person. Thanks!

This got me thinking about adding a monkey paw as a means to carry it. Thanks!

Fade crunch box.
Remove the strap, and make a handle.
Most the time, I will just carry mine by the strap wrapped around my hand.
