    Keep on rolling partner.

    The North Face Rolling Thunder Gear Bag is an easy way to get your gear out of the country. Bomber Base Camp materials work with the plastic bumpers in order to ensure long-lasting durability for all your trips. The zippered external pocket is always accessible so you can pull your passport out at a moment's notice, and the internal mesh pocket splits the main compartment for better organization. The North Face added a Sherpa strap to secure extra backpacks and duffel bags for convenience.

    Great bag, possible durability concerns

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have two. I have one that I don't travel much with and it is used for DH bike soft goods storage . Then, I have the one I travel with. The airlines beat the crap out it . It seems to have worn to a certain point and looks beat to hell, but it stays at that beat to hell look and keeps going.

    Mine has traveled to Europe bi yearly, Australia, China, Honduras, Hawaii yearly and domestically all the time. I have never had any issues with the airlines issuing any extra charges for sizing, you do need to keep it at 50lbs or lighter.

    I have lent mine out to friends when they go on flying ski vacations and they have all thanked me for the use of it, while their buddies are all struggling with their smaller bags trying to get things to fit.

    Would I get another one when that one finally wears out? Sure. I haven't seen any other rolling bag that does what it can do. I have rolling hockey bags that are larger, but they aren't nearly as durable.

    Smooth roller

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

    This handle on the bag is super beefy. As far as the frame of the bag goes, it's one of the sturdiest I've ever owned. The bag is solid and rolls really well.

    The outside of the bag is made of the same durable PVC material the base camp is made from. I've flown a lot with my base camp and it has held up just fine to airport abuse.

    I took this rolling thunder with me to Hawaii a couple of months ago and it looks brand new!

    quite big, and fits all my junk

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used this to take my gear on camping trips, it fits pretty much everything, i did tear a bit on one of the recent trips and I would expect the bag to be a little bit more sturdy

    Never buy this bag

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

    I got the The North Face Rolling Thunder 30in. At first sight is a great bag. However, after the first use it's torn in 2 points, close to the handle. Very fragile, considering the bag wasn't at full capacity. Backcountry was very helpful trying to solve the problem, but The North Face has never answered my emails.

    Can I ask a question? How was it torn? I am not saying it wasn't , I am just asking what was the circumstances for the tearing?

    I called and spoke to North Face about the wear on mine from the airlines. They aren't responsible for damage from the baggage handlers or the conveyer belts that the luggage is subjected to. That is a claim to be taken up with the airlines.

    I guess what I am asking.. What Numbnut was handling your bag?

    It has absolutely nothing to do with the airline. The spots where the bag is torn couldn't be reached by any person handling it and it's not in the handler, it's close to it. The bag is fragile, specialy on the seams. Simple like that.

    Like XL Base Camp Duffel

      Rolling Thunder is like XL base camp duffel with wheels and more. The internal has a large pouch for shoes or boots and next to it is an outboard pouch as well, which are located at the top of the bag when standing. Large wheels for rolling. The bag is so tall there is no need for an extendable aluminum handle, it has dual handles on the top of the bag when standing. Internal straps to secure the loads and two mesh zipper pouches in the top of the bag flap. Ability to strap equipment or whatever to the outside. Have not used it yet, expect it will be a handful when fully loaded. All in all it is a quality bag with good appointments. For the price I think it is a good deal. When I received the bag I went over it with great care to make sure it was the kind of bag I was expecting. Will be putting it to use this fall.

      This duffle is over airline standard 62"

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      I just ordered this duffle and will be returning it. This bag is over the 62" overall size that pretty much all airlines adhere to. This bag's overall dimensions add up to just under 70", a sure candidate for a charge at the airport. No thanks.

      plus it weighs over 10lbs! that's a lot of weight you are losing in stuff IN the bag! Check out the Eagle Creek No Matter What rolling duffle. It's dimensions work for airlines and it's only 4lbs 3oz! I got one and very happy with it.

      United checked mine without any problems or fees :) I have a backpack that fits exactly within the official allowed dimensions for carry on and it's one of the smallest bags in the overhead bins. I don't think airlines measure bags very carefully.

      I have never had any issues with mine being charged extra. All I have to adhere to is being at 50lbs or less. These rolling bags are awesome for travel. Europe, Asia, Australia , every year to Hawaii. No problems at all.

      Unanswered Question

      Does this Bag meet all size requirements for airlines? Or is there an up charge for being to large in size?
