Description

The North Face Base Camp Duffel fits all the gear you could possibly need, and it'll last for-ev-er.

The North Face Base Camp Duffel is an expedition classic. Its heavy-duty fabric withstands a lifetime of abuse, and its alpine-cut shoulder straps allow for comfortable carrying as a backpack. Cram this duffel full of gear for an Everest expedition or pack it for a Thanksgiving family reunion. You can practically pack your own yak in the extra large version's 155-liter compartment. One internal mesh pockets hold small items, and the D-shaped zipper gives exceptional access to every corner. Daisy chains make it easy to tie the Base Camp Duffel to a car roof rack or camel. Four compression straps make the cargo manageable.

Great bag.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought three of them for my kids before heading off on a long trip. They hold a ton of stuff, are super-strong around the zippers and seams (yes, we tested them), the rubberized material is durable and easy to manage, the handles and straps are well-situated and they did well strapped to the top of my car in Iceland during a couple of full days of rain. I'd buy it again...no hesitation.

Love it!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I can carry all of my gym stuff in one bag and it can be used as a backpack too!

All Sizes are worth a Purchase

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I own a couple different sizes, I use a couple for traveling bags when headed on an expedition. Others for car camping and just organizing my cycling gear in the car. The large size fits about 50 lbs of ski expedition gear. Super durable and weatherproof! Highly recommended.

Completely misleading Backcountry

Partly buyer error, but given price and pictures this is a total scam. Shame on backwoods for images and not including size comparison. For 100 + dollars I received a "Basecamp dufflebag" that wouldn't even pack a winter coat. It's a nice bag that would be good for a child's sleepover or carrying a single change of clothes. I'd put value in the 20 dollar range. Not the dufflebag pictured.

The sizes of the different duffels are all listed on the product page. No reason for a negative review. I have two Base Camp Duffels, a medium and a small, and they're the best bags I've ever used and certainly the most durable. There's a reason these things have over 300 positive reviews.

Great bag for any use..

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Durable, resistant, lot of space inside, I'm going now in Italy with this bag and all my stuff fit perfectly in.
I think Medium is the perfect size for one person stuff. Could also work as Hand bag in the flight.
Maybe some small pocket outside or inside will be appreciated to put small stuff as keys, cell phone, tickets, maps......

1. On the NF Base Camp Duffle, do the shoulder straps remove?

2. Would the large be TOO big--I'm 6'3", long torso. I'm heading to Alaska for two weeks, need to tote it around on my back.

Hi John,
I own the size large TNF basecamp duffel. I am about 5'10", 160 lbs, and it fits OK for carrying on my back, but it's a bit long. so the bottom of the bag kind of sits against my butt. Definitely not great for any long hikes, but it's ok for hauling around from point A to B. It should fit you fine though. And yes the shoulder straps remove very easily. I'm sitting at the airport with the bag next to me right now, and I'll take the straps off in just a few minutes!

Bomb Proof

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

After lugging the large one all over Africa, from Rwanda, through the Serengeti and Zanzibar, I’m a huge fan. They barely even look like they’re worn. I’ve since added more to my collection and won’t look back. TNF has done a great job in keeping these the go to in standards for bomb proof transport.

My New Favorite Piece of Gear

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This thing is awesome. Made from a real rugged material with super intense zippers. Won't be let down if you go this route!

Great for Boat Trips

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We sail and this bag is perfect for throwing in the hull, sitting in rain, getting sea spray on it...all your gear stays dry. We have 6...one for every family member in multiple sizes

Bomb proof Duffel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Solid build on this bag, has plenty of options for how you plan to tote it around, and PLENTY of room. Went with the L for a trip to Africa coming up here in August. I previously used a size M for traveling the past 8+ years and love it.

Best bag ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got this bag last year right before I went on a week long canoe trip in ARK. This bag is so awesome. I bought the MED, and it fit my tent, sleeping bag, sleep pad, and clothes for a week trip in it. And sat right in front of me in my canoe and everything stayed dry. And the beauty was, when we had to portage, it slings over your back like a back pack. Now this is my go to pack for everything and everywhere.

I work in the oil and gas industry and pack for two weeks. I pack heavier FR clothing and heavy winter clothes. Also venture on many weekend ski trips with gear ( boots, jackets, pants, helmet, etc) Should I go with the large or xl?

Hey Rya,

I faced a similar question almost a year ago. I work in the wind industry so I travel for 6 week work rotations. I bought the large and it's worked great, but my work clothes are probably less bulky than yours, and I pack my work gear (boots, harness, helmet, etc.) in a separate duffel bag.

I suggest you get the XL size for work. If you don't fill it with gear and clothes every time, it cinches down pretty nicely. My coworker travels with 2 XL bags and is a huge fan.

Bonus points if you get the pink hawaiian printed bag.

This thing is a beast

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great tough bag. The large size is perfect for both me and my wife for a weekend getaway. Even the zipper is tough and thick. It's just one big compartment with a mesh pocket area on the underside of the open flap, so it's good if you already have bags for toiletries. No more suitcases for me, this bag is my full time luggage. You won't be dissapointed with this bag.

Massive and Burly!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Been looking for a duffel to add to my gear collection and decided to pull the trigger on the NF base camp duffel. I bought the XL and it's massive and burly! The amount of room this has is pretty epic. Can easily live out of this thing for an extended period of time. The bag is made of heavy duty nylon. I ran into a guy at work who had a worn one and said he has owned it for ten years. I expect mine to last just as long and well into the future. Very happy with the purchase and backcountry did a great job as ever getting it to me!

nice bag

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

perfect gear bag. i am using this bag to throw in my camping gear (sleeping bag, tent, camp chair, pad) and strap ii on my adventure motorcycle. fits perfectly on the seat over the panniers. gear stays dry and it looks much better than the standard motorcycle bags. the number of different loops allows for nice tie points.

Perfect in every way...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Purchased the medium about a month ago and could not be happier with it. Allows storage and easy carry of all of my police gear to and from work on a daily basis. Holds COMPLETE uniform(boots, vest, gun belt, uniform,), an extra change of street clothes and gym clothes just fine. The strength of the bag is great and I don't worry about anything puncturing through it. It has been out in the heavy rain and all of my gear stayed dry with no problem. Holds the 40-60 pounds I stuff in there without any problems. Strength of the handles and backpack straps provide peace of mind when the bag is tossed around. I liked it so much I ordered a small one for days when I don't have to have all of my gear. As for travel I would have no problem packing for a week in the medium. I would be weary of having a medium as a carry on because of the size. I'll update that when I get the small in the mail. Quit reading all the reviews and just buy one if you are looking at it.

I've read in multiple reviews and answers to questions that people don't have issues using a medium (not fully packed) as a carry on. The medium seems really big to me so I'm a little worried about getting hassled at the airport especially on regional and European flights. Does anyone have any experience carrying on a medium with European budget carriers (I.e easy-jet, veuling, Ryan air, etc.) without any issues? Just really can't afford to be bogged down with checking bags while overseas so any experiences you can share would be appreciated. The medium (72L) is slightly bigger than I need but I think the small (42L) will be too small for 12-14 day excursions. Thanks again for the help

I had the same concerns before i bought a medium. I've carried on the bag pretty much around the world at this point on many smaller regional planes. The only time i've had a problem was in Spain when I had to check it because i was over the weight limit of a carry on, not because of size. Awesome bag only wish i had bought it sooner.

Responded on

As jmop said your issue will more likely be weight than size. I just flew to and around Europe (WOW Air, AirFrance & Swiss) and I could always meet the size requirement, but did have an issue with them checking the weight a time or two. I traveled for 5 weeks with a size medium bag and it was packed for a variety of climates ex: hot summer weather in Switzerland and mild northern weather of Iceland, everything fits into this bag, it is amazing.

Love!!!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

A friend brought this bag up to my cabin and I fell in love with it! I bought one the next day and I have put it through the wringer. I bought a medium and it's perfect for me. I'm really short and petite. It still holds a ton!!! I bought the large for my mom and we took it to Haiti and it felt like you could fit the whole world in it! Seriously best duffel ever! Wipes clean and holds up like a champ! Now I have to buy one for my dad, that's how much we love this bag.
