    "O" rings in Ristretto for Ipad and Medium Cafe Bag

    After some one bag travels with my Large Cafe Bag, I realize it's well, too Large, for my travel style but great for in town.

    So, I need a replacement for travel. It's between the MCB and the Ristretto for Ipad. I'm leaning more towards the Ristretto because it has detachable shoulder straps, is lighter, and offers as much as the MCB plus some.

    So here is my question. How many "o" rings in each of the Ristretto's "compartments"--the main one with the built in cache, the smaller one with the slots for phone & camera, and the zippered compartment?

    How about the same question for the MCB?

    I'm hoping to get at least one of them because not only do I imagine they will work well, but I need more gear to review at OBOW.

    O-rings on the Ristretto for iPad

    Well let me give you an answer here. If there are any glaring grammar or typeface issues it's because I'm on my iPad. In the main compartment next to the padded section there are 3 O-rings. Two on the sides and one on the front left (looking at the bag with the padded section furthest from your point of view. In the zippered compartment there is one on the top left part. In the front most compartment there is an O-ring on the left hand side above the pen/pencil slots.

            I typically add a small key-ring to an O-ring in each bag to increase the clippable real estate.
