    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.

    In town, I flip around between a ristretto and a MB + horizontal cache, depending on how much stuff I need to haul around. The best thing about the ristretto IMO is that I can just drop it in my...

    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?

    All of that stuff PLUS a sidekick will be pretty tight in a ristretto.

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

    we're way off topic but how did you attach the Absolute strap? I'm only vaguely familiar with the MCB/SCB, as I only have the LCB and Makers bag.
