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. Grab the extra-large if you're a goalie on a hockey team and need a place to store your oversized equipment.
  • 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.
  • Internal side pocket.
  • ID pocket on top for permanent name tag storage.
  • Locking zippers for added security.

    Comments about The North Face XL Base Camp Duffel:

    The duffel bag arrived quickly and in excellent condition. I'm looking forward to using it. It was much less expensive than at a national outdoor retailer, which is moving from cordura bags to this exact line of bags. I'm glad the other company didn't have the cordura bag because I found this one -- and the rave comments for it -- online at Campmor.

      I have been a fan of duffel bags over hard sided luggage all of my travel/work career of close to 40 years. I didn't want anything with wheels that could be flat spotted by the airlines. This bag is great!

        I was looking for a large duffel bag for my husband for a gift. He is very picky. This works perfectly! He likes that he can lock it when we travel and that it has plenty of room.

          Comments about The North Face XL Base Camp Duffel:

          I may have to break it in a bit, but the zipping action of the zipper was a little difficult. The bag was way bigger than I expected...I would probably go with a LARGE for a 10 day trip. The Extra Large could probably easily accommodate for a warm three to four week trip, and a cold two week trip with basic "gear" for maybe climbing or camping or something.

            Great bag for traveling. Goes through the airports just fine as long as you keep it under 50 pounds. The bright yellow makes it easy to find your bag coming down the baggage pickup. I also have one of the bags for work as a Wildland Firefighter. It stands up to the abuse of traveling a lot and dirty dusty conditions. Only downside is that its not very waterproof. If it's in the back of a truck and you get in a hard rain shower, all the contents will be soaked!

            Comments about The North Face XL Base Camp Duffel:

            This is my third XL Base Camp bag. They're water- and scuff-resistant, making them idea for travel in rugged conditions. The compression straps are great for times that you don't fill the bag.

            The carry-straps are good, a waist/hip-belt option would be helpful if you're carrying the bag long distances (>1 mi.) Some pre-fab add-in compartments would also be good for the times you want to segregate cargo for easy access.

            Room for a body and cinder-blocks if the date goes wrong. (You offered the "date night/night out" option

                Made of water proof material however the stitching is not taped and the zipper will leak water. So it is water repellent.

              looking at the cubic capacity as shown on the specifications indicate 9020 cu inches..... cubic inches are simply L X W X H or in this case the 32x19x19 = 11552 and then divided by 1728 will give me the cubic feet.... I don't understand how you only get the 9020 cubic inches?

                The zippers can also be tied together in a square knot to prevent the zippers from opening. This is what I do when I check the bag during airline travel.

              • Staff Reviewer

                A:

                The description is poorly worded. The zippers are lockable, meaning that a travel lock can be used to secure the zipper tabs. The locks are sold separately.
