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 bought this bag 10 days ago, took it on one flight, and it already has a rip in it! Poor quality! I bought it to easily carry around as I like the look of the bag and the idea of using it as a backpack in lieu of a shoulder strap for a duffel bag. It is just not made well. It gets scuffles and black marks easily and obviously the quality is not there if it cannot even make it through one US flight without the material ripping. Poor quality for a company like The North Face. Now I have to waste my time to drive 40 minutes to return it because I'm not keeping this bag.

    I really wanted this bag to work but the backpack straps are unbelievably uncomfortable. They're eay too wide for me to wear, significantly wider than my women's Osprey pack. If they had the option to switch strap size at no additional cost I'd keep it in a heart beat as the matetial quality, size and style otherwise were exactly what I wanted.

          Just go, think about what to bring, where and how but don't think about carrying It all. This bag will suffice. Small will fit overhead or under seat unless stuffed. Medium might raid the flight attendants eyebrow- don't pack full and use compression straps, think small and it should work.
          Wet items inside main compartment in the tropics will steam treat your entire bag- try to avoid
          Dark colored bags in the desert will heat treat everything - definitely melts chocolate gifts.

            This product was exactly what I needed. I wanted a duffle bag that I could use for weekend trips and possibly a week long trip to Mexico. It's the perfect size and very easy to carry. Others have complained that you can't carry it like a regular duffle bag but i still love it. Would buy this product again. Delivery is always so quick.

            I bought this duffel to travel around Europe and it was absolutely fantastic. I've owned it for one year now and have used it in my travels all across North American and Europe. I throw this bag all over over, in every imaginable condition and I never have to worry. It's has a very high built quality, all the components still work perfectly. If you pack it efficiently and use the compression straps, then you can use it as carry-on luggage. It's tough, spacious and perfect for everything I do.

              I bought my back 5 days ago, I was quite excited to use it, as it looked like it will work perfectly for my needs ( safety) (zip to my back) but as soon as a packed the bag and tried it out to feel the weight on my back. I started noticing that it is pulling apart slowly at the seams where the straps attach. Now my flight is tomorrow, and I'm not sure if it will survive it. I cannot decide whether to buy another bag or to give it a chance but then arrive on the other side, stuck, with a torn and useless bag

                Great job on removing those floppy duffel carry handles. All they ever did was get in the way and snag on my elbows while trying to put my arms through the backpack straps. The new low profile quick grab handles are a MUCH better design!

                  I really think the bag is high quality but lacking some things I really dont understand why they are missing such as a the ability to lock the bag or normal carry straps. Otherwise great bag. I probably wouldnt buy another unless it had what its currently missing though

                      This may be controversial but I absolutely love the new design and actually prefer it over the older design. The handles on the side of the bag just below the zip are, in my mind, an excellent replacement for the traditional bulky handles. I see a lot of criticism for the new design but I would encourage everyone to try the new version first. It's sleeker, stylish and far more practical. Well done North Face. I've already bought 4 of these bags as gifts for family.

                        I've used this bag for over a year now for day to day use while flying in the Arctic. It's held up very well to the abuse of being tossed around in the gravel, snow and ice. Plenty of space for all my survival gear (Axe, tarp shelter, stove, dehydrated meals, ski googles, sat tracker, fire starter.. etc) lunch, small thermos, and a change of clothes. I've also taken it on snow shoe hikes, fishing and, used it as a gear bag while winter camping. The shoulder straps are comfortable but its not really ment for an extended hike. The compression straps work well to minimize the bag to carry on size. I also have the duffel in size large to carry gear for month long flight postings in remote camps.

                        I've used bags from Gregory and MEC, but this TNF bag is by far one of the best pieces of gear I own.

                          Whoever removed the duffel straps from the duffel bag should simply be let go from your design team. I have searched everywhere for an older version and ended up buying a Patagonia.

                            Backpack straps are great. Haters need to buy literally and other duffel bag and relax. Buying two more for my kids.

                            The bag was perfect in all ways except... it has a shiny GOLD interior. This is not stated anywhere in the description. For such a bold (i.e. tacky) color choice, this should be shown in the pictures.

                              I've had this bag for longer than I can remember, I bought it back when I was in the Navy out in VA and it's been my go to bag for everything since I've had it…
                              One of its functions over the years has been my motorcycle bag for the several different bikes l've had and it was usually held on by a bungie cord most of the time. Well since bungie cords sometimes tend to let go when you least expect, especially when in a hurry to get to work, the bag has rolled down the highway a few times. Twice before I noticed the moment it let go and was off the throttle right away and able to run back to grab it with nothing more than dirt and a few scuff marks to show for its 60+ mph tumble down the road… This last time I wasn't so lucky…. 0450 I get to work, reach back for my bag and it's gone!!! My stomach dropped… I hopped on the bike and raced back to get it…. This time when I'd gotten to the bag it had been run over, possibly more than once, even though it's bright yellow!?!? My lunch bag and all its contents had exploded inside the bag and my favorite coffee mug was flattened and shrapnel of all its parts were floating around with my extra riding gloves… With liquid dripping out I strapped it back on the bike and headed off to work… No coffee for me that morning…
                              That night I get home and after a good rinse and a run through the washing machine it's still usable!!! List of its injuries: Two of the plastic cinch buckles broke, one for a shoulder strap the other for one of the cinch straps, the plastic key there's a small hole in the bottom along a seam that let go, next to a cut in the black Cardura, not all the way through the bag, but this "is" where the metal coffee cup was flattened in its defense, a few more scuff marks and a couple oil stains that didn't come out in the wash…
                              All in all y'all make a very tough bag!!!
                              Thanks!
                              Todd
