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 Extra Large Base Camp Duffle, the 132-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 Extra Large 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 extra large size is suitable for a 2-3 week overseas travel or an alpine expedition trip.
The Extra Large 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. 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 Extra Large 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 Extra Large Base Camp Duffle is a force to be reckoned with.

“Perfect size perfect colour for the job if a little too pricey. North face duffle used for first responder's clothing and equipment. Perfect size for one, durable and well made. Recommend this for large person's kit. Too big if you're 5'4". Time will tell if cost is justified.”
