Big, almost too big

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used this bag (Lg) for almost two years. Perfect space for me and two kids loaded up for ski trips. It fits perfectly in the rear of the Mini, as if it was made specifically for them! Loaded up for a plane trip you need to be extra cautious to watch exceeding max weight, 50 lbs unless you do 1st class, as the pack is like a black hole. It's also convenient to keep all your clothes etc in there in lieu of emptying into dresser at your destination. Good functioning luggage is expensive so comparatively speaking 300 bucks isn't crazy for something thats durable and will last a long time.
ps also easy to spot in the luggage carousel.

Best Bag Ever!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Alright so here is the skinny, this is the best bag I have ever owned. I travel and work seasonally in some pretty rugged places (mostly national parks), so I pretty much live out of this bag for six months a time. It is probably the most durable thing I own. To give an example of the typical haul I pull: 1 snow jacket, 4 pairs of jeans, 3 pairs of yoga pants, 4 pairs of shorts, 2 swimsuits, 2 large towels, 1 set of twin sheets and blanket, 1 bath robe, 4 pairs of shoes, 2 hoodies, way too many socks, 1 laptop + charger, 6 tank tops, 5 t-shorts, 6 dresses/skirts, way too many undergarments, large toiletries bag, 4 picture frames of the family, usually 2 bottles of wine, and a 6 pack of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale beer (important stuff), 2 books, 1 knife roll, and so much more then I can remember right now. If you are flying make sure you buy a luggage a scale because you will go over your weight limit very very easily. This bag really is amazing, I have out it through all types of climate, from 110 degrees in the desert, to a 6 hours in te bed of a pickup truck in -20 snow snowstorm on Montna. If you are nervous about spending $300 on a bag, don't be, this bag will far outlast your adeventrpurs and then some. You really can't go wrong. The large rolling thunder north face bag, truly is the best investment I have ever made. I can't explain how much I love this bag.

Would a bottle or two of wine (packed well) survive inside this as checked luggage?

Best Answer Responded on

Yes! Actually, I packed 12 bottles of wine with padding in the middle of my clothing just fine. I didn't use a bubble wrap, but I would highly suggest it!

Responded on

Hopefully Backcountry.com can add this to the Tech Specs on all luggage?

I brought 6 bottles of wine back from Argentina, via Dallas Fort Worth to Salt Lake, and they all made it fine. Unlike my ski helmet which American Airlines crushed in the same bag.

everything plus the kitchen sink

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

i am able to put everthing we need for a out-of-town vacation. whether it's skiing, camping, biking or boogie boarding. this is one tough bag that handles the weather and baggage claim

Tougher than American Airlines

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Tough bag. Rolls well. I packed my ski boots, clothes and everything else for a 10 day ski trip in Argentina. Was easy to roll around with the airport with my ski bag in the other hand. I put my helmet in on the return trip and regretted it when American Airlines buried and scuffed my bag. The bag survived admirably.... the helmet not so much, and of course it wasn't the airline's fault ;-) Will be using this bag for years to come, unlike the airline

Tough as nails

After going through several cheap gear bags on ski trips I finally buckled down and bought this on a recommendation from a friend. I witnessed His rolling thunder bag touring the world. Always overstuffed and mistreated. sure he'd get dinged for extra weight once in a while, but that beats buying a new bag every year. I'm several trips into my rolling thunders now and haven't looked back.

Great bag

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

I havent used it personally as it was a gift but my buddy loves it. He can fit all his snowboarding gear in it with extra room. Super sturdy.

Here are the product specs for the different sizes:
MEDIUM:
Avg Weight: 10 lbs 9 oz (4790 g)
Dimensions: 27" x 16" x 11" (68 cm x 41 cm x 28 cm)
Volume: 4455 in3 (73 liters)
HAS RETRACTABLE HANDLE

LARGE:
Avg Weight: 11 lbs 10 oz (5275 g)
Dimensions: 31.5" x 16" x 14" (80 cm x 41 cm x 36 cm)
Volume: 7325 in3 (120 liters)
DOES NOT HAVE RETRACTABLE HANDLE

Both will meet most airline size specifications (>62" total L+W+H), although you can easily exceed the 50lbs weight limit on the Large if you're not careful!

Not bad

  • Gender: Male

I change my opinion on this thing. Be sure to balance the weight so that it can stand properly, though it's still prone to tipping. Considering it's a bit overpriced, I give it 4 stars but as a bag it's well featured with loops that I don't use, and compression straps inside, a bit odd but ok, and one large compartment with one smaller section on the head/top part. Not bad if you can swallow the price.

Perfect bag, understand your expectations

Perfect for packing to all you need. We need this as we go back and forth internationally, but understand a completely large size full bag can inherit airline hefty baggage fees or be too heavy to go through some airports (sometimes we pack heavy comforts from home to host country). Durable and easy to transport. Nice side compartments on the side for seperating smaller items. Expandable handles on every size but large. The pull handles on the large size work quite nice without making the whole unit too large and awkward to pull.

Durable, high quality construction

As earlier reviews have stated; this bag is huge. I don't know if it's ideal for airline travel, but if you're looking for one bag to fit every piece of gear you'd ever need to take on a trip, this is the bag for you. I was most impressed with the durability of the materials used. This bag should last for many years even with the roughest treatment!

Is this bag different in Large than in Medium?
There is only a picture of the bag in Medium

There is not any differences in function or style, just a larger capacity.

Best Answer Responded on

The large does not have the "Ambidextrous retractable handle." Check it out http://www.thenorthface.com/catalog/sc-gear/equipment-luggage_duffels-filter-category-wheeled/rolling-thunder-large_2.html

How about waterproof? or water resistant?

Responded on

This bag will have better water resistance over the Dakine. It's not waterproof, but it will prevent short term water exposure from seeping through.

PLEASE READ

The large size of this bag does not have the extend-able handle. Only the medium and the small sizes of this bag have that feature.

Responded on

Bought the large duffle bag thinking it would be convenient to keep all in one place. It was larger than I had anticipated and when packed, weighed too much for airline travel - well over 50 pounds. If you have large lightweight stuff, this bag is OK. If you plan using it for regular luggage and checking it through airports, when packed, it will cost you extra baggage charges. Choose the medium size for regular travel, it's plenty big.
