That adapter should be usb 3.1 Gen 1 (ie. usb 3.0 with a usb-c connection). 5Gbps.

That's the spec of the port on the retina MacBook it's designed for. I have them both here in front of me.

Awesome thank you, I wonder why Apple doesn't list it on their site. Some of the ones I'm looking at on Amazon say 10Gbps, but I'd rather have Apple quality.

Nice, I just ordered one. Looks very small.

It is. Almost too small perhaps. :D I keep a cheap USB3 SD card reader plugged into mine to provide a bit larger and less easily lost object. Of course that reader is why I bought it so it's the best place for it anyway.
One note: I found it can be a bit stiff to connect the first few times. I was on the verge of returning it to Amazon due to it not working when I read the reviews and discovered that aspect. Now it's great.

I don't know if you bought the Apple one yet, or what your exact needs are, but they did just start selling a lightning to usb-c camera adapter http://www.apple.com/shop/product/MK0W2/lightning-to-usb-3-camera-adapter?fnode=37 which has the added benefit of a charge port which means it can support more peripherals. With the basic adapters some peripherals may not receive enough power.
