(I can't say that about some other projects I've backed! Still waiting...) They have a new project, the Quanta Clip, and this one's going to benefit the [...]

Since I don't carry a purse or wear a belt, the items have to be small, lightweight and serve more than one purpose.  I recently reviewed the Trayvax Summit wallet [...]
