WHERE has this been all my life? I ordered this prior to a weeklong trip, and I feel like an idiot that I'd never invested in a cable bag. I got myself the version in black, and the finish on the outside is more like a very dark charcoal wool suit. I actually think this is nicer than a full black for travel, since the color is going to hide dirt from planes and the airport much better. I use it for all my charging bricks, a 10 foot lightning cable, charging cables, earbuds, other iPhone/iPad accessories, and instead of a mouse I put a backup battery pack. Once the items are in here, they will not move, and the straps have a grippy addition inside to ensure that They stay put if you have to open the case. I looked at a ton of options on Amazon before buying one of these, and I'm so glad that I chose this one!!!
