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.

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.

Best Duffel I've Ever Used

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this bag for everything travel, weekend trips, gear, you name it. I think I've had it about 4 or 5 years now and it still looks great! It's incredibly durable, there's even a video of it being tossed down Everest somewhere. If and when mine dies, I'll be getting another one.

Great bag, intuitive features

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love this bag, just got it for a recent trip and did well through the airport. Got the medium and it fit perfectly under the seats on a smaller plane and in the overhead bin (not fully loaded and cinched down a lot). Nice intuitive handles, easy to maneuver in security lines, airplane center aisles, and taxi driver handoffs. I got the Coral/ brown one, which was a nice bright color but not too obnoxious. Update: just recently took this bag on a hut trip in the San Juan Montains, worked like a charm on the sled ride in, carrying almost all of the group's food for the weekend, and held on like a champ on a wild ride back down to the car (BF says he wants one too).

Great bag, intuitive features

Packs everything I need

I'm traveling in India for three months and this bag has been an absolute lifesaver. I can pack everything I need and more. The backpack straps were a huge plus which makes it so much easier to carry for any long distance carrying. It can take a beating and I don't even have to worry about it. I've been living out of it for the past month and love how easy it is to use. Very simple design. I see this bag coming on all my adventures from now on!

Stellar bag

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

I borrowed one of my friend's duffels, and I loved it so much I went and bought my own! It's so spacious and very high quality. Plus the pattern is pretty legit. Going to be using this for all of my traveling this summer.

Thinking of picking up one of these bags as a carry on/something I can bring to the gym/office. Would you recommend the small or the medium?

Cheers!

I'd go medium. Its 24x15x15, plenty of room to carry stuff and small enough to fit in an overhead.

I've been using the XL for about 25 years, traveling, hunting, packing. It has carried scuba gear to many beaches and cold weather gear all across the arctic. Recently I busted the zipper tab off so after 25 years I decided to get a new one, and love it just as much. Of course I'll still use my old one once I get the tab replaced.
