So the bag in an overall sense is great. Couple things I noticed however- Biggest thing is that TNF is really skimping on the handles of the duffel. I have a Large Black Base Camp that is 3 years old and I noticed that it appears to be much more rugged than the new ones. The handles are twice as thick and thus twice as unlikely to break on a long haul. I also noticed that it appears to be thinner material all around, not near as thick as my older bag. This is Def something that TNF needs to address. The reason we buy TNF is for Sheer Rugged Durability!!
