So, in this post regarding the Aeronaut, I bitched that I wished I could use my under-utilized Absolute Strap on my ID. But alas, I have the older ID, which was incompatible with the Absolute Strap.
Tested a nifty doohickey for those of us who love our old-school IDs but would like the new-school strap flexibility. It's an adapter that converts the 1 1/2 strap bags to take a D-ring, to which you can attach the Q-AM, Absolute, or Terra strap. You take the old strap out of the toothed slider thing, and slip the short length of 1 1/2 strap on the converter into the slider.
I'm pleased to report that it blends right in with the bag and doesn't look makeshift at all. It's made of very sturdy black plastic that somehow seems to resist scratches or other signs of wear. And I'm pretty hard on my bag.
Here it is attached to my beloved and well-loved ID.
I carry a lot of stuff in my ID, and using the Absolute strap makes it feel about half as heavy. Thanks, Tom and Darcy!
