I used The North Face Base Camp Duffel to haul gear to Mt. Orizaba in Mexico. Just to get to the base of the mountain my gear had to fly on a plane, tax through Vera Cruz, take multiple buses through remote Mexico and take a wild dusty 4x4 ride to base camp. In my TNF Base Camp Duffle I had a lot of sharp equipment but it didn’t punch any holes in the bag. I took another lesser duffle bag and put four holes in it.
The shoulder straps are really great for traveling. It was much easier for me to carry the Base Camp Duffle around like a backpack than carry it by its handles. The compression straps really help take the stress off the zipper and material when you over stuff the bag like I did when traveling. The mesh pocket on the underside of the top flap is nice for separating out important small items.
If you need a duffel bag to haul climbing gear or travel around the country or globe, you won’t find a better duffel bag than the Base Camp Duffel.
