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.

Sturdy bag, AWESOME strap design

By ericah

Comments about The North Face XL Base Camp Duffel:

I purchased this for my son for a week-long Boy Scout camping trip (not backpacking, clearly). I was impressed by the quality of materials used here - the zippers and bag material were really sturdy and could stand up to boy-treatment, whereas a cheap duffel I'd previously purchased had holes in it after only a half dozen uses. It was bigger than I anticipated and at first, I worried about my 12-year-old son's being able to carry the bag himself once it was full. However, the absolute AWESOMENESS of this bag is that they designed backpack-like straps that allow you to distribute the weight more evenly and carry this bag, even fully loaded, with relative ease. As it turns out, this bag is so large that I could have gone down a size to the L, and still fit all his gear, but it's nice that he has room to pack more if he needs to, and the straps mean he can carry it. The only, minor, downside to the bag is that it's essentially one big open space with no dividers for things like toiletries, etc.

        We do a lot of traveling overseas, and we have been very pleased with the duffels. They have a clear pocket for luggage tags, and they hold up to many trips (being thrown around by airline personnel.) My husband was at the beach and his room flooded. Everything in the duffel was dry. It's worth paying extra. If you're going to travel a lot, don't settle for a cheap duffel. Go for the best.

        Comments about The North Face XL Base Camp Duffel:

        We are planning a motorcycle trip around Lake Michigan through Michigan then through Wisconsin. The bags are big enough very well built, like other reviewers there are not enough compartments. But that would not stop me from buying another one if the need came up. That is why I gave it a 4 star rating because of the lack of compartments.

          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!

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

                    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.

                    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.
