    Monoprice is great. The genuine Apple cables always kept fraying at the end, so I got the Monoprice cable with braided nylon jacket, which I think is what you mean by "reinforced ones." They have...

    I suspect that Go Navy is right--the strap is probably not swiveling properly, and then the clip essentially twists off the o-ring. I'm not talking about the clip deforming in any way--the o-ring is...

    Thanks for all the replies.

    To clarify, I have the 5/8in straps on both of my Side Effects. They have the all-plastic clips on the ends that are also on the keystraps.

  9. Side Effect strap clip comes off o-ring suddenly, dropping bag to ground

    Hi, TB--

    I agree, and I'm a one-bag proponent and practitioner! One-bag travel is full of trade-offs and regrets.

    Halcyon and ballistic nylon are slippery compared to Cordura. That can be a good thing--my Cordura bags pick up lint and loose pet hair like crazy.

    It'd be awesome to see a Synapse 25 or 19 in lightweight Multicam and/or the other Multicam patterns (arid, tropic, alpine, black).
