    I also find my ballistic MB to be quite floppy/slouchy when I don't have a large flat object like a laptop in it, which I rarely do as I prefer to carry my laptop in a backpack. I can fit some things...

    Yes I've encountered this problem. I'm considering attaching some velcro to the rails so they stay snug to the body of the cache, which has the benefit of being a non-permanent solution.

    A laptop bag? Interesting... I feel like there are very few laptops, let alone laptop bags, that are less than 8 inches in width.

    I think the extra carrying capacity comes from the greater depth of the TC. I'm not sure whether it translates in practice though, as I've never filled either of them to capacity.

    Try either the Cygnett Chargeup Pocket 2500 (which is smaller than a credit card and very thin), or if you need more power, the Anker Powercore Slim.

    I've been considering this option. Do you have an opinion on whether the SE or SK works better as an UMP replacement, or is it just a question of how much extra space you need?
