When you are travveling for races, casual travel, expeditions or basically in any condition, you need a tough and durable bag for your journeys. Heavy rain, snow, mud and friction are the factors that might damage your loved goods inside your bag. During my journeys to many races I used normal bags where some of my stuff got wet and damaged. But then I met with The North Face™ Base Camp Duffel Special Edition .
Especially in the UK, If you travel via airports or trains you see a lot of people use TNF Duffel bags. Thats why I tried to have one for a long time. The one I got recently is the Special Edition with shaded logo and a great sand color with black handles and stripes.
The North Face duffel bag first introduced in 1978, it has been thoughtfully refined to include premium leather accents on the haul handles, alpine cut shoulder straps and ID window. The iconic duffel has been further elevated with anodised metal hardware and a unique textured-linen emboss. Made from a laminate ballistic nylon and strengthened with extra bartacks and double stitching, this rugged 90 litre bag is hard wearing and super resilient.
The locking D-zip flap over the main compartment has internal mesh pockets. Compression straps lock down and secure the load from shifting. The North Face™ Base Camp Duffel Special Edition in an updated expedition travel bag of choice.
I used the bag in my trips to Lake District for hiking. As it is a sot bag compressing it is not a problem there fore you can squeeze it anywhere in train, either the compartment above my head or the luggage area. The good part is you can carry the bag horizantally by using the two adjustable and very confortable straps.
The tag outside of it is great and I added one of my Business cards in case it gets lost 🙂 The stiched perlon straps are great if you want to hang it to a back of a horse, motorcycle, or donkey even if you try to go to Himalayas 🙂
There is also a mesh area where you can store your documents or important Essentials to reach easily. The zips are süper strong and hard to break even in tough conditions. There are 3 carry handles each on the very end and also on top. These are leader and very strong. You can drag or carry with two people if it is heavy.
I am süper Happy with my bag and I would love to get my second duffel from The North Face too…
