Why We Like The Base Camp 132L Duffel

We've learned the hard way that trying to juggle multiple bags and suitcases on an expedition isn't the way to do things. This time around, we embark on three-week ski trips through Japan or journey into sub-Saharan Africa with The North Face's Base Camp 132L Duffel in tow. Made with bombproof ballistic nylon, and with 132 cavernous liters of space, this bag's not afraid of being tossed in baggage carts, lugged through train stations, or carried through rugged terrain with a full load.

  • Massive duffel for your biggest adventures
  • Base Camp fabric is incredibly durable and water-resistant
  • Detachable shoulder straps let you wear it as a backpack
  • Four compression straps help you cinch down load
  • Padded side handles help you haul and heave the bag
  • Mesh pockets keep smaller items organized
  • Water-resistant ID pocket for easy identification
  • Item #TNF041O

This Bag Swallows A Lot

Was in MOAB climbing and biking when I realized my 95L Base Camp Duffel was not going to hold the additional gear I'd acquired and needed to take back with me. So I called Backcountry and had one of these monsters the very next day (THANKS!). Was very glad at how much it held = everything I needed to pack, PLUS the folded up 95L!!! It's easy to place this huge bag on its end and strap it to a folding roller-cart if it's too heavy to carry as a backpack. I try not to abuse anything I own, but I can't control how a big duffel is going to be treated by the airlines; so it's nice to know these bags are built to take punishment under all sorts of circumstances. Almost indestructible! Postscript: Spent a month in Utah for business training, and packed all my clothes into this duffel using packing cubes for organization. Plenty of room for a month's worth of clothing and shoes - and then some!

Tough Bag

One of my favs. This bag has SO much open space inside. Love that it has the straps to carry as a backpack because something this bulky can be awkward to carry. Really durable and easy to clean the dirt marks off.

I lost count on how many duffels

I've used it several times

This time it’s TNF 132 Duffel. In my opinion the greatest duffels on the planet and here’s why. Durability they stand up whatever life has to offer.. Sizes great prices and so many different array of colors! For me these bags fit my lifestyle for work and personal😶.... Whatever size you decide it will not be a bad choice. Thank You Backcountry for another great deal! Happy Hunting and live life to the Fullest!

Great Duffel

I've put it through the wringer

I love my base camp duffel bag. I traveled alone through Greece and Spain alone for a month. I traveled by air, by ATV and by ferry - needless to say I needed my bag to hold up against all types of weather and wear. I had plenty of room to pack all my gear, and managed to eliminate all other bags except for the duffel which made for really easy travel. The backpack straps are wide enough so that they don't cut into my shoulders when the bag gets heavier. Highly recommend this bag for any and all adventurers.

Great bag.

Good quality duffel. I have used on several trips and it made it way through at least 12 airport baggage terminals. A little scuffed up but no usability issues. Straps are still on tight and I haven’t had an issue with the zippers. I used the backpack style straps once and they are nice but I usually have a more conventional pack so not likely to use it often. I thought about getting a wheeled duffel but pretty happy with this as it compresses pretty nicely and is easy to move though tight spaces. I can imagine it’s waterproof at all but it’s definitely water resistant. Happy with the purchase.

Thanks for contributing to our community, Jonathan. Your reviews are very helpful!

Big, bright, and tough

I bought the Summit Gold color as a gift and for Father's day and it was a huge hit. Great for storing or hauling a massive amount of gear.

Large and Durable

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

I am not outdoorsy but wanted a duffel for family vacations and this one went above and beyond my expectations. It is durable and very large. I was worried since I am usually a suitcase type of person but this was great. It fit all of my stuff, I bought one for me and one for my husband so now we can just toss our stuff in and go.


Is this the old style?

Nope, this is the current style for sure! You can compare and contrast off of The North Face's website ( And if you have any other question, feel free to contact me, details above!
