My pacemaker is fitted near my left shoulder. I have been adapting my sacks to avoid this but without real success. Does anyone know of a single shoulderstrap rucksack that may be suitable.

I think you might struggle with large loads on one shoulder, but something like this for a small day sack might work?

Slightly militaristic looking, but the Maxpedition range might be worth a look too.

A wild card......
There are slingshot rucksacs designed for photography. These can be both small ones or quite large in relative terms if your looking for a larger sac, and generally have strap over the right shoulder. At least some have removable interiors, so this maybe worth considering. All the larger photo sacs are double strapped though - that said some are designed to slip a shoulder strap off and still be balanced (to allow spinning sac round to gain access to camera etc.) and having larger waist belts the best designed ones could be quite easily worn with only one shoulder strap on.

Something like https://www.lowepro.co.uk/brands/lowepro/slingshot/slingshot-edge-250-aw/pd348/. I have no recommendations, sorry, as I personally don't like the sling shot ones so never researched them.

A word of warning, you do have to pay a premium for the photography ones and some can be 3 or more times more expensive than you would expect for a walking one. Partly this might be for the design and extra padding that is need for protection of camera equipment, and partly a premium for a specialist market.

I often use a rope bag - the long tubular ones - with a tape sling double-theaded through the eyelets. Can wear it one shouldered or both. This is probably as clear as mud. I'll send some pics if you're interested.

Have you looked at kriega rucksacks? They are designed for motorcyclists specifically to take weight off the shoulders. I can't say for sure it wil be suitable for your specific needs but their products are fully waterproof and solidly constructed.
