    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Basecamp duffles have become a staple at my house, they are bombproof, you seriously can't kill them. my only gripe is I love the look of the Black duffel but my stuff just disappears inside it so I end up digging around to find my favorite socks and just making a mess

    Perfect Basic Duffel

      I needed a weather-proof no frills duffel to haul ski/running/ocr gear. I also wanted something that looked good enough to use for normal non-sporting weekend travel. The medium base camp duffel in tnf black has worked out very well in both regards. I love the backpack straps – they are much more comfortable and make carrying a loaded duffel much easier than a typical single shoulder strap. I was debating between the base camp duffel and the patagonia black hole duffel. Two features on the base camp won me over. First, the separate pocket on one end of the duffel is perfect for keeping muddy shoes or wet clothes away from the rest of your gear. Second, the cinch straps on the sides of the duffel are great for reducing the size when it is not fully loaded. Probably can’t go wrong with either, but my Gearhead, Karsyn, was spot on in pointing out these features. Lastly, I love the fact the TNF logo on the black model is a muted silver color rather than bright white.

      Great Bag!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I finally got around to getting one of these in size large. I purchased it for traveling, and so far it has accompanied me on several trips. Plenty of room and really bombproof. The zipper seems super strong, and I expect to get many years of use out of it. I also like that it collapses down for easy storage. Best in class.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I needed a 90L bag for trekking Kilimanjaro. I did a lot of research on bags and couldn't be happier with this bag. It fit all of my clothes (winter and summer wear for a week) in addition to a very large sleeping bag. It is easily carried as a backpack which is fantastic, and the space is perfect for a decent trip.

      Looks great after abuse

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Not sure at first how much I would use the duffel, but I LOVE it. I bought the XXL bag and can fit all my smaller bags inside for big trips. I have stuffed my sleeping bag, tent, climbing gear, clothes for 2, and more all in then strapped it to the top of the car. Best purchase ever

      Perfect Travel Duffel

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This duffel has been amazing for everything from camping trips to airline flights. I purchased the small and find that it can fit under the seat on an airplane if needed. I most often wear it as a backpack when traveling but it is also easy to carry as a duffel.

      Perfect size!

        I love these North Face duffels. I have a few of them in different sizing. Mostly the two largest sizes which I have used for years with traveling. I use one for all my gear and another for everyday clothing or essentials. I recently picked up the medium size and it is the perfect go to size for every day use. The backpack straps and waterproofing make it super easy to take everywhere. Love it!!!

        Purdy Sturdy

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Only 4 stars cause I haven't use them on a plane much, yet. It's a sturdy bag though, and can hold a lot. I got the medium, so almost 70 liters.

        It has one mesh pocket on the inside. The straps are super handy, in the airports and what not. The straps are also pretty easy to take off, when not in use.

        another this I really adore about these is that I can fold them in half and secure them with the straps, to store them.

        The photo I pasted has by ski gear: boots, helmets, gloves, hats, coats, base layers. It's the perfect size for all of this.

        Legit. Cannot get more durable.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Okay, let's be real. This bag is legit. The perfect travel bag, car camping, climbing, alpine, ski bag, and much more. Finally decided to get myself one after getting my friends and family one. Was a bit jealous of theirs. The side and mesh pockets are perfect. The outside loops are nice. The best part besides the durability/waterproofing is the straps so you can wear it as a backpack. The only issue is the zippers are a bit tough to zip.



        Size medium is a great overall size. Get size medium or large.

        Bulletproof

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Summary:

        Do not cringe at the price of this bag; this bag will last you forever. The material/fabric is very thick and rigid. The bag I almost rubber coated on the outside making it fully water proof. The zippers are crazy big! These must be the biggest zippers I've seen on anything. It has enough internal pockets to provide organization but is not overwhelming. Some of these bags have so many compartments you can lose your stuff, I hate this. $ or 5 ways to carry the bag. I just keep grabbing for this bag for every use. So Far it is my daily gym bag, my airport luggage, my snowboard bag.



        I want some of the other sizes for other uses!

        Replacement

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This bag is a replacement for a TNF XXL duffel bag that I purchased back in 2004. The original bag has traveled from North America, Central Mexico, South America and Alaska. It served me well for many years. During the summer it has served as my gear bag while being deployed on wild land fire assignments. It has survived weather of all kinds and more airports and flights than I can count. My old bag is still functional, other than some general wear and tear, the only issue is the PVC coated fabric is pulling away from the zipper seam.
        My hope is that the quality of my first TNF duffel that is more than a decade will continue with my new one.

        Unanswered Question

        I'm looking for a duffle/backpack to store in my kayak for portageing, big enough to throw my water proof bags into,strap on, throw up the kayak and make one trip approximately how small does this duffle fold up?

        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.

        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?
