    Ruffwear makes two ring collars... But the second ring for bling isn't free moving. I like them.

    A compression cube for the A30 that covers the entire floor of the bag and about 4 or 5 inches high unloaded that compresses down to less than half and possibly a companion half cube in medium blue!

    Some years ago I got a collar with the ring configuration I described, but I don't think they're made any more, and frankly, it was pretty ugly. But my poor dog is still wearing his nasty, manky old collar because I very much adore the two-ring configuration.

    I figured that sometimes when we ask for more o-rings in bags we get them, so it's worth a shot.

    As much as I like my Burnt Orange S19, I'd love one in Iberian even more. The 200d Dyneema is plenty tough. I'd love the flexibility of the fabric and the light weight!

    I'd love an aubergine/kiwi Swift with a uv interior. I hope one of the new bags is Side Effect like, about twice the size with lots of pockest and a significantly improved strap.

    Side Effect in Linen would look nice...even Burnt Orange, and Kelly Green.

    This! I would love this! I think we need 2 o-rings, one of each side.

    You could also stitch a split ring into the binding/seam in the pocket, instant O ring. Using small stitches and split ring won't stand out like a sore thumb. You then have someplace to hook a key ring.

    I can suggest an interim solution, in the meantime, make use of the o-rings in the main compartment. Clip a keystrap onto one of the o-rings in the main compartment, then instead of dropping the other end of the keystrap into the main bag compartment, drop it into the exposed outer pocket. Tether whatever you need to this end. If you prefer not to have the keystrap stand out so much, use the black one, or one that blends with the exterior of your bag.

    You could also tether stuff to the carrying handle of the cafe bag.

    Yes, now that would be a great addition! I would find the O-ring there useful too!
