Awesome bag. Used as a carry on for my trips with no issues. However it does take most of the storage in the overhead compartment. The back pack straps are a good idea but with a heavy load (50-70) pounds is a little rough on the shoulders. The straps need a little more cushion. But with a lighter load they work just fine. The material that the bag is made of reminds me of wrestling mat material and feels like a very durable material.

I had such high hopes for this bag. I was so excited when I got it. I do a lot of traveling and thought it would be easier to use a NF Duffel and I honestly regret it every. single. time. The straps are completely useless. If you have even a little bit of weight you feel it on your shoulders. Its not meant to be carried, but even having to carry it short distances like an airport transfer or from the parking lot to your house/hotel the bag is a PAIN to carry. Actual physical pain and so much frustration.

Also-this bag is ABSOLUTELY NOT waterproof. I thought the point of making the bag with waterproof material was that it would be waterproof and could withstand a little water-let me be clear- it cant. Not even a little sprinkle rain. All the North Face had to do was make the zipper waterproof like the rest of the bag. I am currently on my 3rd load of laundry and drying everything out because I left it out during some light rain and everything got soaked. Actual puddles. I assumed it would be just the top of the bag where the rain comes in from the zipper but there were puddles at the bottom of my bag. I couldnt be more disappointed with this bag. North Face I expected so much more from your "technically advanced" gear.

    I work in the maritime industry and use these bags to pack for work. I now own the medium, large, and extra large duffels. I have packed the extra large with 4 months worth of my things and it works perfect. I use the large for my 3 week trips and use the medium for trips about a week long. These bags are fantastic and very durable. You can put them through just about everything.

        Comments about The North Face Base Camp Duffel ? Large, TNF Black, L:

        The small Base Camp Duffel is one of my best travel purchases by far. This bag has accompanied me on Sahara camel rides, treks through the rainy streets of London, and all across Japan. The small is a perfect fit for the majority of airlines' carry-on specs, and I have yet to have issue with rain soaking through. Another aspect that I appreciated when backpacking through crowded streets was that the main zipper access for the bag is impossible for others to reach since it's flush against my back. I can't imagine a more durable or convenient travel bag.

          Using for an extended camping vacation that requires flying to the destination (aka hauling all my gear through the airport). This bag in large is huge, very manageable and tough. Zippers are precise and unobstructed. You get what you pay for and I wholeheartedly recommend.

          The bag I got was very stylish. Im very excited to use it in Europe. I have already used it for moving locations and it carries so much stuff it's ridiculous. I can fit my whole life in this bag. I like the design very much and was very happy to receive it. I was gonna go with XL but I belive large was good enough for a month worth of travel.

          Why did you remove the carry handles?

          By 

          from Denmark

          Comments about The North Face Base Camp Duffel ? Large, TNF Black, L:

          I've been the happy owner of a TNF duffel for many years - Fantastic duffel bag! But I recently ordered a new one as supplement, and realized that you on the new model for some reason have removed the two carry handles in the sides, which means that it is has become very difficult to carry the bag by hand. OK, I admit, the shoulder straps are improved - but that does not make it up for the loss of carry handles... Seems to me, you have turned your world-class duffel into a not too successful mix between a travel bag and a backpack. I've now returned the bag, and will try to look for an old model (or another brand) instead. Any change we can get the carry handles back?

                  I have two and I need more. I can't believe that you have removed the longer side handles. This makes the bag useless for carrying large, heavy loads. I have no idea who you surveyed before making this change to a classic, essential piece of gear. Just hang out at an airport any place with mountains and the choice is clear. Please fix this. In the mean time, I'll be looking for an older version. If you have one, please direct me to the place to buy it.

                      I went on a two trip to Europe and this bag was perfect! It fit easily in the overhead bins and was comfortable for walking/sightseeing for a few hours. I was able to fit a weeks worth of clothes by rolling everything and packing lightly. It beat paying for bag charges and having a bulky roller bag to worry about. Would definitely recommend!

                      Perfect bag to take to the gym or as a carry on. Will be using anywhere from boating to business trips; large or small enough to fit my every need.

                        Great general purpose bag for short excursions. My only request would be to include a shoulder sling to carry it like like a small cross body or like a standard duffle

                          Ideal for backcountry trips. A great winter overnight bag, can be easily tied down to a sled.
