Duffle Days – Topo Designs

He who would travel happily must travel light. – Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Last summer, I charted a six-week trip to South Africa, Tanzania, Zanzibar, and one sizable obstacle in between: Mount Kilimanjaro. It was this last part of my peregrination that presented a unique challenge. How would I pack for -10°F to 90°F temps, including a sleeping bag and high-altitude essentials, and do it all without checking any luggage? Packing for Kili was proving to be more mountain than molehill. That is until Topo Designs overnighted a spacious American-made duffel and a set of instructions: “Don’t get eaten by lions.” I loaded up the clay-colored carry-all and promised to do my best with the advice.
