The North Face


The North Face Base Camp Duffel Large

The legendary Base Camp Duffel will be seen on luggage carousels the world over. Never ones to rest on their laurels, The North Face have updated the Base Camp Duffel for 2016, adding extra details to make transporting and using your new Travel Duffel bag easier than ever.

The NEW Large Base Camp Duffel is made from the original Base Camp fabric and Ballistic nylon with the same incredibly tough and rugged construction for years of highly water-resistant use. Durability has been further ramped-up for 2016 with extra bartacks and double stitched reinforcements. 

The North Face Base Camp Duffel Large pocket upgrades for 2016 include a zippered side pocket and an end zippered pocket too for easy access to your phone, wallet and other items you'll need quick access to. The main compartment now has a zippered mesh pocket lid pocket - useful for kit organisation - and another mesh sleeve at the end to keep smelly socks separated from the rest of your stuff. There's also a water-resistant ID pocket on the top, so you needn't worry about faffing around with luggage labels at the check-in desk.

The detachable, adjustable, alpine-cut shoulder straps on The North Face Base Camp Duffel Large have been tweaked to create a more ergonomic fit to minimise twisting and improve carrying comfort when using rucksack-style. Also on this NEW 2016 version of the Large Base Camp Duffel are padded side handles that make for improved carrying comfort and easier hauling. The old Base Camps had the handle on the top, which wasn't quite so simple to carry and lug about.

Function and usability are guaranteed with the huge D-zip opening which enables you to see what's where inside your duffel bag. There's also a weather-resistant zipper flap to keep your kit protected and four compression straps that allow you to pack smaller loads neatly.

The North Face Large Base Camp Duffel Bag is a super-tough Travel Duffel perfect for your ski holiday or trip further afield. And complete with the NEW updates for 2016, you'll have extra organising potential and an easier to carry bag.

The new Base Camp Duffel Bag (Large)
Tuesday, 28 February 2017  | 

So I solely bought this because I have an obsession with orange coloured gear. I have a 4 year old Base Camp Duffel in red, same size but older model. They are bomb proof so the last one in no way needed replacing. Was actually a bit disappointed with new model. The addition of a 2nd zip compartment on the end was a good idea but why, oh why did they remove the lockable zipper on main compartment?! This gave peace of mind when leaving in a communal left luggage area or when checking at airport. It must cost all of 5 pence extra for the padlock bit on the zipper! Big mistake North Face!
Also not sure I agree with the removal of the side carry handles, again useful when checking luggage and carrying short distances.
All in all I expect the bag to be bomb proof like the last and love the new orange colour but certainly disappointed with some of the features they removed from the old model.
As for service from escape2, first time using them but very friendly communications and quick dispatch, thanks Jen!

Thanks for your feedback Lee - it's much appreciated and will be fed back directly to The North Face. I hope you enjoy your new orange duffel despite its drawbacks over the previous model! Jen

Still great bags, but...
Sunday, 1 January 2017  | 

These duffle bags are still probably the best out there, but I wish they still offered the old style.

Basically, the old design was more duffle/kit bag; the only extra pocket was the mesh one in the lid, and it also featured large tote style handles. It came with backpack straps, if you wanted to use it like that. But it was most definitely a gear hauling duffle, not a rucksack.

This design is much more of a rucksack and not so much a duffle, with most of the new features aimed at making it better in this role; beefing up the shoulder strap hardware and doing away with the classic handles in favour of low profile side handles. Also the different sizes have different pocket configurations, so look out for that.

These bags are the best, and I've had a few of the older ones for years. It's just a shame they don't make both styles, because they are different. If you just need one bag and you want to ware it on your back, these are perfect without the old features. If you want to carry more than one, you're packing a lot of kit into a transport, or you just want to carry a small/extra small as a gym bag, then the old ones are way more suitable.

I hope these bags don't loose they're icon status over this design direction, because they're still the toughest out there.

Thanks for reading and I hope this was helpful!
