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.

Customer Reviews

  • “Great for travelling and amazing quality. I am super happy with this purchase! I have used it twice in two weeks since it arrived. The bag is heavy duty and fantastic quality. I know it will withstand lots of travel and can't wait to utilise it more. I normally need a big bag for travelling and pack way too much but this bag is big enough for a week away and easily suitable for a camping weekend trip away. Thanks so much for the quick delivery and great price.”
    Elisha from Hawthorn, VIC, Australia
  • “Great size, can be cumbersome. I bought this for a 2 week trip. Turned out to be twice the size i needed (and i dont travel lightly), which was good since i could also put my carry-on backpack inside it and only manage one bag from the airport. While there is only one layer of material, it is very strong and durable. I especially liked the backpack strap option. They are easy to put on, and wont come undone accidentally. My only issues are that i wish it came with a shoulder strap option. Because of its size, you can pack in quite a bit into it, which makes it difficult to carry with the hand straps alone.”

  • “Perfect size for 1-2 week Adventures . About to do a 2 week campervan trip around tassie. Fits all the essentials and is built to withstand the not-so-delicate airline staff.”

  • “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.”
