This bag is amazingly good for so many reasons. I have allot of bags as I travel for work and play, I have Tumi, Briggs and Riley, Camelbak, Samsonite, Chrome, Maxpedition and about 3 other brands and this bag is the best.

I have spend over $600 on one Tumi bag trying to find the holy grail of bags and it was close, but The North Face Duffel is the best if you need a workhorse and not a show pony.

I know in Australia a Camera Crew had 6 large North Face Duffels they used to travel constantly to hard places, and 10 years later the same 6 North Face Duffels are still being used! What I like about them - Water resistant, tough exterior, external carry handles, shoulder straps, protected bottom, can be lashed to a roof rack or motorbike, easy access to you stuff, strong zippers, great colours to identify on carousel - the last bags you will every buy because they are indestructible.

Just get one you won't be sorry!!

I was in the market for a bag to replace a 20-year-old Samsonite duffel that I had taken around the world a couple of times but that was falling apart and beyond repair. The replacement candidates came down the North Face Base Camp and the Patagonia Black Hole. Both are very similar in that they are water-resistant duffels that have backpack straps. Both are about the same price, and for the larger (90 liter, 120 liter) and smaller (45 liter) sizes they have the same capacity. But the medium sizes are different: the Patagonia is 60 liters while the Base Camp is 72 liters.

MEDIUM: BIG ENOUGH FOR EVERYTHING I NEED, SMALL ENOUGH TO COUNT AS CARRY-ON
It turns out that, for me, 72 liters is comfortably large enough to fit everything I need on a multi-month trip. While perhaps I could have fit everything into the 60 liter Patagonia, it would have been a tight fit and would have made carrying extra food virtually impossible. The one time I did fly with this bag on a North American airline that charged for checked baggage, I was able to take this on the plane as carry-on, and I was able to fit it into the overhead bin of a the larger plane, though it would not fit into the regional jet's bin.

DURABILITY
I don't fly that much, and I don't carry pointy things inside my bag, but I have found the Base Camp to be pretty durable. In six months of traveling the only issues were that the velcro on one of the straps has started to come off (they stitched too close to the edge of the velcro) and the luggage tag is starting to tear away from the stitches that hold it down to the bag. I dropped by my local North Face store and they say it can be repaired under warranty but it will take about 6 weeks, which seems like a long time.

Color Name: TNF BlackSize Name: Medium Verified Purchase
This is an excellent quality bag. In fact it is my 7th North Face base camp bag that I own. I purchased my first one (size small) 8 years ago. I loved it so much I purchased the Medium sized. Still loving it I purchased the Large one. They are all still in great shape and have been checked many times and never lost. No damage either. My family grew so I decided that I liked them so much that I wanted to have two of each size. So I got 3 more...SML...MED...LGE. Then my family was planning a long trip and we needed to pack lots of cloths and cold Wx gear. So I ordered another.! I now have seven. People always stop me and ask about them. They're great bags! Period! Strong and quality. I highly recommend you to give one a try. I bet you'll want another soon. I would start with the Medium. The small is good for an overnight bag. The Medium is good for a long weekend trip. The Large is good for extended trips of 1 to 2 weeks. My wife and I can pack into a single Large for a weekend trip, or sometimes we'll pack into 2 Mediums. We can get both our kids into a single Medium bag. That's why I decided on the 7th Medium. Now we can go with 3 mediums on our long weekend trips.

Color Name: TNF Yellow/BlackSize Name: X-Large
I've had my trusty Base Camp Duffel for almost 9 years now, and I absolutely love it. I was initially drawn in by the backpack straps - wearing this giant thing on your back makes carrying it extremely easy. Even with 50 pounds of stuff in the bag it's not at all unwieldy as long as it's cinched close to my back. I've even used it as a pack on canoe trips - the bag sits low enough to carry it while I'm portaging a canoe on my shoulders.

As the years have gone on I've become more and more amazed at the build quality of the bag. The big, beefy zippers can handle the abuse of me trying to zip up a badly overstuffed bag, and the rubberized coating takes a beating. After years of being tossed by baggage handlers my bag has plenty of scuffs but the bag still functions as new after all these years.

I'm extremely satisfied with this bag. Yes, it's expensive, but it's the last duffel you'll ever buy.

The North Face Basecamp duffle appears heavy duty and comes with a "lifetime" warranty. But let's get real for a moment. I bought an XL and an L thinking that I'd be able to use these for years to come. But these things are easily damaged used as checked luggage. Nothing sharp inside, my bag, nonetheless, got a major slice through both the nylon bottom the the rubberized material when I picked up the bag after the flight from Amsterdam to Minneapolis. Though nothing was missing, some of the contents was hanging out through the hole. If this had happened to my XL bag that was carrying my gear for climbing Kilimanjaro I would have been in some deep trouble. I was lucky.

But this bag clearly isn't up to the task of air travel unless you actually put it inside of "real" luggage. It's probably okay if you are just throwing it in the trunk of your car. Since it isn't waterproof I wouldn't throw it in the back of your pick up.

Then what is meant by "lifetime" warranty? Well, according to The North Face, I had apparently misused the bag hence this mishap wasn't covered. Thumbing through the warranty I was also surprised to see that if the bag actually wears out from mormal use, that isn't covered.

Currently the Large sells for about $163 on Amazon--which is a VERY expensive duffle bag. Is it suitable for airline use? No. Is it waterproof? No, you either need to put it in something waterproof, or put the contents in something waterproof. Will it protect the contents any better than a typical duffle? No. An army surplus bag is likely to protect your contents as well for far less money.

What you are really getting for paying a premium for a Basecamp duffle? You are getting to advertise the North Face name in big bold lettering and getting to believe you have a superior product when it's just run of the mill. It's not a terrible product, just a terrible value.
