Are you missing an article of clothing for your gear pack prior to departure in your quest to tackle the foreboding behemoth that is Everest? It is likely in your XL North Face Base Camp Duffel.
Stuck in the airport returning from your weekend jaunt to Austin to catch the annual SXSW Music Festival? Just grab that book you’ve been trying to finish for over a month. I think you put it in the zip pocket of your Medium North Face Base Camp Duffel.
Therein lies the beauty of a true modern classic. Whether you are a mountain-conquering adventure fiend needing a durable and dependable bag to carry the essentials that sustain you in your various quests, or a city-slicker wanting a versatile piece of luggage to support your weekend warrior adventures, the Base Camp Duffel has you covered.
Constructed of extremely strong PVC tarpaulin, this North Face bag is made to last a lifetime. While durability is almost certainly its calling card, the Base Camp Duffel is also extremely convenient to use. It comes equipped with two internal mesh side pockets to hold your smaller and easier to lose items, and the D- shaped zipper on top of the bag makes it much easier to access all parts of the bag when packing, unpacking, or frantically searching for that misplaced passport. The bag also features four compression straps to aid in cinching down a full load.
When choosing the luggage that will fit your needs for trekking around the globe, comfort is often of paramount importance. The North Face Base Camp Duffel has it in spades, as it includes two sturdy Alpine-cut shoulder straps that allow you to carry the bag like a backpack. This North Face product comes in four different sizes to accommodate the smallest weekend getaway to the yearlong sabbatical, as well as five distinct colors.
Perhaps the most remarkable part about this bag is its durability. While I myself have already used my bag on several trips and seen firsthand how well it takes a beating, I have also read countless online reviews from those that have brought their Base Camp Duffel throughout the six continents and the harshest of conditions. It has withstood it all.
So, if you’re looking for a bag that can take on the world with you and endure to tell the stories you keep, the North Face Base Camp Duffel is the one for you.
