    Perfect On-the Go Duffel

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I love this bag, and will certainly be buying more in different sizes. I bought the small, which may seem tiny at first, but it easily fits all of my ski gear (minus the boots) with room to spare. I also use it for weekend trips and it works great. I love the small size because even when it is loaded fully I can still carry it on my back with no problems. The material is super durable and tough, so I don't have to worry about beating it up a bit because I know this bag will hold up.

    great gear bag

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    I have these in all different sizes depending on my trip/gear. With a large I can get all my bike and camping gear for an over nighter in Moab. The XL I can pack boots and winter gear for snowboard trips. The medium is often used for non-gear weekend trips or to pack the kids stuff in. I've taken these on planes and packed in the back of trucks during blizzards, they hold up just fine and are super easy to pack around with the backpack straps. If you want organization these probably aren't ideal.

    exactly what I needed

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

    I got this bag to use on a 2 week trip in Central America. The medium was a great size. It fit everything I needed (plus a bunch of stuff that I thought I needed but never actually used). I think any larger would get too heavy and would be really difficult to carry any distance. The backpack straps were key. They made long, hot, dusty walks through the border crossings and passport control more doable. It would have been really rough to carry a bag on one shoulder, or worse, roll one behind you in a situation like that.

    My one very minor complaint about the bag is that the main flap was very hard to keep open while I was packing it. I'm hoping that as it gets worn in and less stiff, it will fold back for easier packing.

    Bring back the zipper lock slots!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    This is the first-worldiest problem anyone has ever had, granted. The revised Base Camp is still a burly, functional duffel... but the old style had molded-in matching passthroughs for luggage locks on the main zipper pulls, the new ones don't. True, you can just run a lock through the zipper pulls themselves, but this allows the zips to separate up to 1", potentially allowing water in, and in my two trips with the new bags, TSA has not once re-locked the zips properly, which was never a problem with the old passthrough slots. There's also no way to lock the new end compartment.

    I'm guessing a lot of Base Camp owners use them the way I do, which is to put a bunch of expensive gear in checked baggage en route to dubious places. The lock slot removal is a tiny little thing which was obviously done as a cost savings, but given that the new bags are no cheaper, it makes me wonder what other corners were cut.

    Perfect ski/snowboard gear storage

    If you've got questions about the The North Face Base Camp duffels, feel free to contact me. There are some differences between last years duffles and this years but those changes are for the better. I've tested out a few of the different sizes and have really enjoyed them.

    If you've got questions about the The North Face Base Camp duffels, feel free to contact me. There are some differences between last years duffles and this years but those changes are for the better. I've tested out a few of the different sizes and have really enjoyed them.



    I've used duffels from other brands that have nice features but the overlly complex designs that other brands are producing just make for a poor experience. I strongly prefer my Base Camp duffels to the duffels I've used from other brands.



    For me the material is nice and durable. It can stand up to the abuse I'll throw at it on the trips I take which is nice.



    The new pockets that have been added definitely make for a bonus. I like storing my goggles, gloves and hats in some of the pockets.



    Lately I've been rocking the Base Camp duffel in a Medium for my trips to Snowbird. I can store my boots, helmet, jacket, layers, gloves, goggles, etc in the Medium. I've also used my Small to haul all that gear (minus my boots).

    Rad Duffel for hauling gear

    Hey Jared,
    I'm "gearing up" (get it?) for a month-long trip out West. The mission objective is to snowboard my face off, but I am in need of a worthy bag for the journey. My questions for you are:

    - Do you think this bag could accommodate a laptop safely? I typically carry my laptop and other work stuff in a backpack so I'm kind of concerned about sacrificing my laptop bag for this deal.
    - Does it have straps on the sides where boots could be attached?
    - Would you say the Medium could hold enough clothes for a week or so?

    Thanks in advance!

    Anna,

    Great questions. This isn't a pack that has a dedicated laptop sleeve. You could put it in a laptop sleeve or something and put that in the TNF duffle.

    For boots, I just toss mine inside. If you are putting your boarding apparel and boots in the duffle and you want to put in clothes for a week, you'll need at least a Large. I just a medium for just my boots and snowboarding apparel.

    Updated Model

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

    The North Face has changed the design this year. If you're expecting the old model, this will surprise you. Keep an eye on these details.

    #1 - no duffel carry straps
    The old model had one set of backpack straps and one set of duffel carry straps. This new model has only backpack straps. The new model has a handle on the side. I thought I would miss the duffel straps, but I haven't. **UPDATE** Still don't miss the duffel straps. The side handle works great.

    #2 - new shoe pocket
    The new model has the normal duffel opening and space. This new design also has a new pocket on the top end of the pack. Volume for this separate space varies with size, but I was able to put a pair of shoes in the Medium sized duffel.

    #3 storage strap?
    The old model came with a storage/display tote. This new model has a strap for compressing the bag, which is more useful after the bag has been used.

    The bag is nice and I do enjoy having the M, L, and XL in my quiver of packs but I do have some gripes. The bag has way too much PVC in the material. Yeah, it feels durable but it's not very pliable and it's awkward to store when not in use.

    Also, a lot of people think this bag is waterproof because of the material. It's not waterproof or 'nearly waterproof'. None of the seams are taped which means it has hundreds, if not thousands, of holes in it for water to enter. Also, the huge zippers on the top of the pack are not waterproof, allowing for hundreds of more gaps where water can enter. Bottom line, the bag is not waterproof.

    I do prefer the Patagonia Black Hole over the Base Camp because the material is more pliable. In Spring 2016, the new Black Hole will be able to be stored in it's own pocket, allowing for much easier storage when not in use.

    Great review, can you tell me more about the new pocket that can fit a pair of shoes. Is it a mesh type material that separate it from the rest of the bag or is it the same material like the outside of the bag?

    I hate putting my dirty shoes with my clean clothes.

    Gold Standard for Travelling!

    • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Yea, its what you need.

    Bomber ripstop nylon covered in dragon scales. Kidding, but seriously it kind of feels like this thing can take a shot from a 12 gauge and stand up to the blast.

    Got the large and its what it is. LARGE. a small teenager can fit in it - or an entire rack of cams, all of my clothes for a week, a rope, my other climbing gear, a bunch of camera gear - and room enough to spare to bring some delicious libations back from North Carolina!

    Buy 1 for yourself and then 12 more for the rest of your gear!

    Pack It Up!

    • Familiarity:I've used it several times

    I purchased the medium size bag and it is absolutely perfect. I use it for weekend camping getaways and some short trips up to 4-5 days long. If it's going on a plane, I usually check my bag so I don't have to worry about bringing it through security- I think it is a tad too big to be considered a carry on when completely full. The number of handles that is has makes it super convenient when carrying other items. I love the back pack straps more than the conventional one shoulder strap because it spreads the weight out and makes it easier to carry a heavy loads. The outer fabric has shown little wear in the few months I've used this bag and it looks like it will last for the next few years! I haven't been able to test out how water-resistant this bag is but it seams as if water would "bead" up and roll right off. Everyone should have one of these bags in their traveling arsenal!

    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.

    My impression is that small and x-small don't have the zippered compartment but M and larger do -- this is from looking at pictures on TNF website and trying to answer this same question. The S and XS should have the small little end cap pocket (for keys etc.). However, since I can't guarantee this it would be nice if a Gearhead chimed in here...

    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?
