  1. Your trip looks amazing… I have a (maybe strange) question: Lindsey, if your REI sub-kilo is a right side zip, is there any chance you’d be willing (at some point) to sell it? I have one too and am trying to find a mate for my husband so we don’t have to both buy new bags. Please let me know if you might be interested. Thanks!
