BASE CAMP
DUFFEL

From the Antarctic to the Himalaya,
the Base Camp Duffel has been everywhere
you want to go

It’s been thrown down the Lhotse face, dragged across continents and hauled up Pakistani peaks.

Born in 1986.
Exploring ever
since.

Originally designed in 1978 as hardwearing soft luggage crafted from laminated vinyl, it was beefed up – and given its existing name – in ’86 with hyper-durable ballistic nylon to withstand the rigours of expeditions.

“The Base Camp Duffel is the go-to bag for every The North Face athlete. It’s simple.
It’s indestructible. And it’s built for serious abuse.”

· Made from super-durable, water-resistant ballistic nylon

· Two padded side handles let you grab and go

· Switch to shoulder straps when on the move

· Get at your stuff quickly, with the D-door opening

SAME. SAME. BUT DIFFERENT.
THIS IS THE EVOLUTION.

Over the years we’ve added more handles (in 1989) and a D-door full-zip top opening (in 1996), and it now comes in sizes extra small to double-extra-large.

READY TO BE
ROUGHED AROUND

Whether on camels or yaks, flat-bed pick-ups or travellers’ backs you can sling it, throw it, haul it, sit on it – the Base Camp Duffel can’t be beaten.

If there could be
just one bag
to symbolise epic
adventures,
it'd be this.

It’s journeyed from expedition base camps to urban metropolises and you’re just as likely to find it filled with rope, harness and mountaineering boots as you are bikinis, boardshorts and flipflops.
