It's not your average duffel bag. Made from a durable laminate material, the Base Camp Duffel is a bomber of a bag. Amply resilient to be roughed around in-flight, or to be transported up a mountain via a yak, this is one burly duffel bag.
  • 1000D Phthalate-free TPE fabric laminate. 840D Jr. ballistic nylon.
  • D-zip with zipper flap for visibility of entire bag contents.
  • Twin haul handles on ends for towing and tying down when traveling.
  • Rugged construction with extra bartacks and double stitching for extra reinforcement and improved durability.
  • Alpine cut shoulder straps for comfortable, easy carrying as a backpack.
  • Four compression straps to secure contents and lash bag down when traveling.
  • Two internal side pockets.
  • ID pocket on top for permanent name tag storage.
  • Locking zippers for added security.

      Excellent product but much of its excellence comes from its simplicity. It's a tough but simple duffel bag. I now own four of them and have never lost equipment or had equipment damaged with these bags.

          I use this product to move all my stuff from Hawaii to Thailand. I can pack the maximum stuff and not worry about the bag breaking or getting wet. Plus I have the option to carry it like a backpack or shoulder bag. It's colors are bright enough that I can see it a mile a way.

                  Comments about The North Face Large Base Camp Duffel:

                  I recently trekked through the Himalayas for nearly a month, and I traveled with the North Face LARGE Base Camp Duffel to hold my climbing and trekking gear as well as other necessities. It was able to fit a sleeping bag, a down jacket, snacks, trekking poles, ice ax, snow goggles, basic clothing, and a pair of shoes! Every day the duffel would take a good beating from being loaded and unloaded from yaks, and it also took a good beating through the airports I went through...however, not a single tear! The only thing on the bags are some scuff marks but I call them adventure marks. My only suggestion is to pick another color other than yellow if you would prefer not to see the "adventure marks". :)

                          The North Face Large Base Camp Duffel is made of water proof material, however the zipper is not water proof. The seams are not taped either so it would not be a good duffel for submersion. An example of a fully water proof duffel is the SealLine Widemouth Duffel 80 Liter

                          These bags are quite sturdy and should hold up through airport and travel stress. The large would be about as large as would be convenient to carry around. The xl is quite.

                          certainly able to be in a torrential downpour w/o contents getting wet, but seams are not sealed and i would not submerse the bag and expect no water inside. I regularly put bag on car rooftop driving in snow and rain w/o issue.
