    I did a couple of trips with strap keepers on one side of my brain bag and web dominators on the other side. The strap keepers were completely unobtrusive and basically flawless. The web dominators...

    This method does solve that problem, and eliminating the "dangling ball" is probably a plus in many situations (definitely reduces the chances of...

    Just got a pair in today's mail. My initial impression after seeing these for five minutes:

    * installing them is MUCH easier than web dominators
    * very compact
    * releasing them is harder. ...

    I have done this. The Makers Bag will fit, but if you really pack it, it will be a bit wide and can be awkward to get the BB's cinch straps tightened down etc. If you don't need easy access to the...

    My guess is that this charger would meet the USB-IF standards but they just haven't submitted it for certification. At that price point I would be shocked if it doesn't meet the standards.

    That innergie looks nice, I definitely love the size, but it's not USB-IF certified. At that pricepoint it seems weird for the manufacturer not to get it certified.

    The easy solution to this problem is... don't use em. I just don't get a lot of value out of having the cache attached to the bag.

    As for the cache being bulky... really? anything slimmer and...

    This sounds like a good idea but I'm having trouble envisioning how it would work. Do you have an example of a similar product from another manufacturer?

    The MB+cache or DLBC+cache seems like a better fit IMO.
