agreed but in my case, I put a laptop and other stuff I need to work with while traveling which make the Sidekick work better for me. If no need for this, then yeah, just take that stuff out. I plan to try the hotbag in a couple of weeks. the other thing I was going to do is put the empty hotbag in my ski bag and then use the sidekick for all my other crap.
Hmmm, I like that idea. I have a hotbag but it's stupidly awkward to carry, and now I have zipfit liners again, so I really need to have it with me. Thanks!
