Caught off guard...
I purchased both the XL and L version of the North face base camp duffel. I was very confident going into this trip that I had made a wise decision in purchasing these bags. I just returned from my trip andI must say I am disappointed. On the return trip home my XL bag came out of the baggage claim with a hole on one side and my L bag even though still intact, is showing the same wear and tear as the XL. This is the return trip of the bags' maiden voyage. I am embarassed to say that I have purchased bags for less than a quater of the price and they lasted longer. (In fact I used one on this trip.) Simply... disappointing.
