This one's quick.
I love the Apex (eek! Did I just say that?) for the material's resistance to otherwise potentially damaging alcohol wipes (I work in a hospital and like to disinfect it regularly to prevent the possible spread of infection)...but, I got really sick of the super-long elastic.
Hack: shorten the damn elastic.
You can easily access the elastic end from behind the inner pocket, it turns out. A permanent solution could be to use pliers and move the metal clip, then trim the elastic. For the sake of speed (and the fact that I may want to return the elastic to normal one day) I knotted it, and it does the treat spectacularly.
