    Perfect Bag

      This bag is ready to have any situation thrown at it. It is the perfect carry on that can also double as a climbing bag, skiing bag, or really a bag for anything! I have been more than thrilled with the quality of the bag. It has beefy zippers that zip up even when its bulging because its so full. One of the best purchases I am yet to make.

      Fantastic bag!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love this bag. I went to a local outdoor store to buy a internal frame backpack and ended up buying this instead. I used it for a 2 week trip to Costa Rica and it was awesome! I bought the XL size and it holds a TON of stuff. I love the backpack straps--they make it so much easier to carry than a normal duffel.

      The only downside to this bag: there aren't a lot of pockets. There's a mesh pocket on the underside of the closure flap and there's a pocket on one end of the bag. It would be nice to have another smaller pocket or two on the inside of the bag, or even a small pocket on the front outside of the bag.

      I had to leave my bag in a storage facility while we went whitewater rafting for 2 days and it rained through the ceiling on to my bag; there were water droplets on top of my bag, but all of my stuff in the bag stayed dry! So it might not be totally waterproof, but it's very water resistant!

      Looking forward to taking many an adventure trip with this bag! I take this bag on all of my long trips (10+ days) because I can fit so much stuff in it. You can't go wrong with this bag!

      Great Bag

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

      Love this bag!! But mostly love backcountry.com! My dad is a firefighter and ordered this bag for the third time. He highly recommends this bag to others as it is durable, spacious, water resistant, detachable straps, and can be worn like a backpack. If you are looking for a duffel, do yourself favor and get this one. You can't go wrong.

      Nails!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Not much to say really? It is a super durable bomber bag that you will most likely have for the rest of your life. It is all about the fabric as it is a no frills bag that can handle anything you throw at it or gets thrown at it. This is a hose it off hose it out type of bag. So if that is what you are looking for you can't go wrong. Everyone in my family has one and as a family we have one in almost every size. M, L, XL. As personal I think the M is the bag to get. As extended adventure, Hunting, I have a large. The XL is for throwing everyone's ski crap, etc and knowing that it is all in one place with know worries. Or if you live the Soprano lifestyle and need to dispose of something? Just get one or more as you won't be disappointed!

      BOMBER!!!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This may be the most bomber duffle bag in the history of duffle bags. I just bought a couple of these for my girlfriend and myself in preparation for our upcoming trip to New Zealand and I am thoroughly impressed. I got both the Large (95 Liter) and XL (132 Liter) sizes and they are RAD! They are made out of the most burly fabric I have ever seen and are damn near waterproof. I will be amazed if these ever tear, and I am sure they will keep my gear dry unless they are submerged, as the only possible entry point for water is the zipper, which has a burly flap that covers it and would effectively redirect water in even the gnarliest of rain storms. I was stoked to find out that the Large has a separate shoe pocket on one end, which is nearly camoflauged. The XL also has an inner mesh divider on one end for footwear. I am thoroughly impressed with these bags and intend to use them for many years and many adventures to come.

      XL Base Camp

        I went back and forth a lot between the North Face XL Base Camp and the Patagonia Black Hole- I work professionally as a guide so I need gear that can put up with a beating. I'm usually a big patagonia supporter (when it's on sale...) due to their environmental initiatives but after doing a lot of research I settled on this bag because it seemed to be the more indestructible of the two. This bag is HUGE-which is awesome. I can literally put everything and anything I could conceivably need in it and the material is really durable. The patagonia black hole bag just seemed a little flimsy and also had the brand written across it in big bold letters- sometimes I work in very rural, very poor areas and I would not blame anyone for stealing a bag that is clearly expensive. Even though the north face branding is apparent on one end of the bag, it is far more subtle than the patagonia branding. This bag can hold 65L backpacking backpacks, sleeping bags, rockclimbing gear, horse tack- you name it and it can fit it (with the exception of a western saddle but let's not get too carried away)- anyway, the bag is great, I got the black with highlighter yellow borders for visibility and I'm looking forward to taking this bag anywhere and everywhere- btw don't worry about the size if it seems too big- it has compression straps. The only con is that it does not fold down very small but that is to be expected with durable fabric so I cannot discount it for that.

        Bomber, classic duffel

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        For transporting gear this is the standard. It's not lightweight to be clear, but it's mostly waterproof, durable as hell and you can keep beating it up without worry. Takes tons of gear. I've got S through XL and take em camping or climbing.

        Bomber, classic duffel

        North Face Base Camp Large

        • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

        The build quality is great. Very large and spacious. However the lack of handles over the top of the bag was a deal breaker for me. I watched video reviews online and those showed handles over the center but for some reason the new model didn't have those.

        I will be returning but if that isn't a deal breaker for you, then this bag is great!

        Awesome bag!!!

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

        This is a very durable bag, just the right size to travel with. Te straps are even made to tighten down and not hang lose which is a plus if you check it for flight. Great weekender, take along on trips to bring back all the stuff you buy. Will definitely use it on camping trips as well. Also going to use as a cover for backpack so I can check it on flights.

        Great bag!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This bag is great for carrying all of my ski gear. We always fly into small airports and inevitably our bags get wet due to snow and melting ice. The North Face Base Camp Duffle bag keeps my gear dry. This bag has held up to the jostling and dragging of numerous ski trips. The zippers are also great, I’ve never busted one.

        Great bag, useful sizes

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have two of these, would like to add a third. The medium is a great 2-3 day bag if you only want to carry on. I don't think you'll ever have a problem getting that size past airline personnel. I also have the large. It's three inches larger in diameter. I'd still consider carrying it on if it isn't crammed full. With the backpack strap, you can put it on and walk right onto the plane - no one will likely say anything to you. You just may have to do some stuffing of it into the overhead bin.

        The durability looks to be exceptional. Thick sides. Some may complain that this makes it a little stiff, but that's a good trade off for the durability. Same with the zipper - very firm, but it feels built to last. I'll take that over easy to zip but prone to breaking.

        If you travel on business for a night or two, the medium is really a great size. You can fit a lot more that your typical cabin roller, of which I have at least five. Where this really helps is shoes, the bane of all efficient traveling. You need a dress pair, a casual pair, and a running pair. Oh, and your clothes. And you dopp kit. In the medium, no issues. You can fold suit into it, dress shirts, running clothes, slack, jeans, etc. I've been really happy with it for professional travel and use, and frankly, it makes you look less like a stuffy d-bag. You're a business traveler, but that's not all you're about.

        As for outdoor use, clearly it will get wet in a rainstorm. None of these bags are billed as waterproof. Very water resistant though.

        The biggest complaint you'll read is about the lack of a shoulder strap. There are grab handles at both ends - you could easy add your own with a couple of carabiners if you so desire. I'm surprised TNF hasn't thought of this yet as an accessory. I haven't yet, but have thought about it, because i also travel with a computer backpack. Two backpacks is a pain. The off center carry handles (on the side, near the top) are brilliant (as opposed to one on the center-top). It reduces stress on the lid/zipper, and when using them, it places the load away from your leg instead of having to hold your arm out farther.

        Between M and L, tough call. I grab the large more often for road trips, as I over-pack. Plane trips, I still think the L will work, but I am 100% with the M. (I'm 100% with the L as well, but smaller sample size).

        Considered a number of other brands, including the Patagonia. Ultimately I went with this due to being bigger at ever size. Plus, there is something old school cool about a sort of traditional round duffel bag.

        Get It!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Absolutely without question, the best duffel you can buy for the $$$. I bought this Med. size bag for my wife as kind of a weekend, or overnight carry-all. She loves it! I'm pretty sure you could drag this thing wherever you are going and it would be fine. It's built like a tank and has way more room than you would think. I've got a Large size that has been to hell and back, twice. The Med. is the perfect size for her to carry, easily. She can fit an entire weekend of clothes, shoes, make-up bag and hair-dryer with no problem and it's not too big to carry. After seeing how convenient the Med. size is, I'm thinking I need one as well.

        Best duffel bag ever

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

        A lot of space, you have to check that, could be bigger than you expect, i really like it has backpack styled straps, easier to move around. The cosmic blue blueprint is sick.

        Do all sizes (of the new updated version) have the extra zipper pocket on one end? From the pictures, it looks like some have it and some don't.

        In October, Cameron C. claims that this bag isn't water-resistant even though it's marketed as so above. Can anyone verify this or have an experience with this bag and water/snow/etc?

        For anyone that has the older style with the carry handles, have you found this to be as convenient? I know they always got in the way, but they really were convenient when carrying it like a normal duffel.

        Hi there,



        I've found the re-positioned side handles do a better job for extended-arm side-carry. Since the new handles are offset and positioned near the top, the bag hangs closer to you and doesn't cause your arm to form an angle outward. I think they are more convenient, since like you said they will not get tangled every time you use the shoulder straps.

        Does the small or x-small meet requirements for all flight carry-on?

        Best Answer

        Mick,



        Here are the measurements for the X-Small and Small:



        X-Small:

        11.03” x 17.72” x 11.03” (28 x 45 x 28 cm)



        Small:

        12.8” x 20.87” x 12.8” (32.5 cm x 53 cm x 32.5 cm)



        The FAA says "The maximum size carry-on bag for most airlines is 45 linear inches (the total of the height, width, and depth of the bag)."



        Based on that, the X-Small would work and the Small would be right on the edge. But you'll want to check the allowed dimensions for your specific airline that you'll be flying. The above rule of thumb from TSA is just a general guideline and can vary from airline to airline.

        Can you strap a snowboard to this bag?

        Hey!



        For this bag, there won't be a way that is secure.



        What type of use scenario are you looking to do where you need to be able to attach a snowboard? Travelling? Boot packing? etc?
