Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was going to return this. I thought it may have been too big or bulky or just wouldn't fit the bill. I thought the backpack conversion for the XL size probably wouldn't work. I even contacted backcountry.com and had the shipping label and everything to return it- but it seemed so well made...and it was a giant bottomless pit and appeared very durable. So I didn't return it. This has been the absolute best duffel. I travel internationally as an outdoor adventure guide. This bag holds everything!!! The zippers are strong, there is even an area on the bag for airline ID. The backpack function isn't only functional but comfortable. I really, enjoy this bag and am so happy I didn't exchange it. It has become one of the workhorses in my arsenal. perfect for long road trips and seasonal work as well. I really want to get the next size down for shorter trips- the bag is fantastic! I couldn't decide between the patagonia and northface giant duffels but after doing A LOT of research I am very glad with my decision.

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.

Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size

I've been on the lookout for skirts I can use when traveling/when out and about in coastal areas. this skirt is perfect! I'm about 5'6, 125 and I ordered a small which fit perfectly. the colors are gorgeous and the fabric does not wrinkle easily (not to mention dries quickly! and on sale too? go ahead and order more than one, you won't regret it. hits above the knee and the tiered design makes it very flattering

Fit: True to size

Bought this as a gift for a relative- it's roomy enough for layers underneath and has a comfortable fit. The sea foam color is beautiful and the zippered pockets are convenient when hiking. Excellent and durable product- have stacked wood and thrown hay in it with no rips yet! Just wished this vest had the sleeve cuff to keep the wind out
