The North Face Base Camp Duffle is hailed as the king of heavy duty duffles, and for good reason. It's a legendary classic that has been around for over 30 years with little changes since it inception. This is the Medium Base Camp Duffle, the 71-litre version. Made from a highly durable, 'bomb-proof' 1000D TPE fabric laminate that is phthalate-free and reinforced with a beastly 1680D junior ballistic nylon base, the Medium Base Camp Duffle will protect your gear from abrasion, stretching, drops and falls and keep it dry from the wet elements too. It's a bag that's amply resilient to be roughed around in-flight, or to be transported up the alps via a mountain yak. The medium size is suitable for a week's stay.
The Medium Base Camp Duffle features a spacious main compartment, accessible via a large D-zip opening with a weather-resistant flap to keep it extra protected. The main compartment is a simple open space with a zippered mesh sleeve on the inside of the D-zip flap. A left side zippered pocket is available for extra organisation. Daisy chain webbing is featured around the bag for easy attaching of accessories. Compression straps are available on both sides of the bag for a more compact fit.
The Medium Base Camp Duffle has a three-fold carry. From the side padded haul handles, the top padded haul handles or the detachable, adjustable, alpine-cut shoulder straps that have been improved to provide a more comfortable and ergonomic fit and to reduce strap twisting. A water-resistant ID badge is available on the top of the bag. With all these notable features in mind, the North Face Medium Base Camp Duffle is a force to be reckoned with.

“Great size and quality . A good size weekender made from durable material. I was a bit worried the product might have a chemical smell owing to the pvc, but it did not. Would recommend if you don't mind the price tag.”
“Great for travel. The north face duffle bags are great for trips anywhere as they are hardwearing, water resistant and pack well.”
“Awesome All Rounder. Overall a fantastic quality bag that can be used for travelling big or small trips.”
“Too large for gym, just nice for a carry on. Was looking for something to carry on in an upcoming flight, this size was perfect for it. It had enough room to accommodate my random ends and still be tough at the same time. The strap needs a little getting used to as it's conventional backpack style straps which you can use to sling on one shoulder. I used it for a weekend getaway to mount hotham and size was again perfect on this. Can't recommend enough. May get a bigger sized one as a check in.”
“Just the item I was looking for. Sturdy, simple and yet versatile duffle bag. Looking forward to to take it along on my next os trip!”
“Great multi purpose travel bag. This bag is made from super tuff and waterproof material. It is really good size for travel and has some well thought out and practical straps.”
“Quality bag. Big in size. Hubby loves the bag.”
“Excellent quality and versatile. Excellent quality and versatile excellent quality as expected from north face. Bag has a no frills approach at providing the basic needs from a dive/duffle bag. Numerous handles offering various methods of carriage is a great positive, however straps for carriage as a backpack do not hold your desired setting from each lift. Only thing missing component is the option to utilise in a standard shoulder strap setting.”
“Small enough to carry on, big enough to add more in. Great bag. If you have researched this bag you will already know that. The quality is great. Heavy duty but still sort of light. I will be testing this out on a trip to thailand. I wanted a bag that i could carry-on the flight on the way over, but large enough so i could buy stuff and check the bag on the way home. I am only just over 152cm, female and small,tis medium sized bag sits nicely when worn as a backpack. Hopefully it will be easy to maneuver on and off planes, songthaews, taxis and buses. Very happy with purchase.”
“Awesome general use sized bag. Always love the quality of north face, very sturdy and could be a good multi use everyday bag. Also the you-tube video review guide helped me a lot in my purchasing decision. Extremely fast postage.”
