This bag handled at list 10 international climb trips, expeditions, off-roads and you named it!
The only holds in the bag happened in the bottom because I dragged inside the airports with no mercy!
I do own 6 M, 4 XL and 4 XXL sizes, so I can tell with confidence these are the best bags I have owned, and I never had any bad experience about the size in the airports like in the previous review said, and the XXL it's a monster when it's full.

TNF removed the center handle in the new ones (this is a big mistake) the side ones are very good when 2 people are available, but by your self it's hard to move around, please put back!

I have owned several TNF duffels in different sizes. Family is growing so I purchased a new XL bag. Very disappointed with some of the changes. Why did you change the carry handles on the bag? The new handles are useless. It makes it very difficult to carry the bag around unless you plan to drag the bag or use the shoulder straps. Also, the new shoulder straps get in the way of the main compartment when open. Please bring back the old bag style carry handles, and add snap removable clips to the shoulder straps so they can easily be removed for airline travel when checking in the bag. In terms of durability and capacity the bag is still excellent. The main reason I am keeping mine instead of sending it back.

    Comments about The North Face Base Camp Duffel Bag - XL:

    I've purchased at least seven of the old model. Fantastic bag.

    The new model is a step backwards. It is hard to carry without the center straps and it's also a lot more difficult to secure the bag to a roof rack w/o the center straps.

    The new side handles are near useless. Why even bother adding them, so two people can carry a bag?

    Please put the main handles back, please.

        Have previous models of the bag, liked the quality and design. Bought another one and was highly disappointed - carry handles have been removed, and shoulder straps are not as solid as they used to be. Returned the bag to the store.

                  Comments about The North Face Base Camp Duffel Bag - XL:

                  I have had my XL duffel for about 18 years. Mine has interior pockets on each side. They took them out for some reason on later models Anyway I have used it more lately as a carry on because of the switch to paying for luggage. This bag has a great ability to compress into the necessary shapes of overhead compartments.

                  Now the biggest downside to this bag and they deleted my comment before is the fact when you have a lot of stuff in this bag the shoulder straps are not enough to prevent fatigue... They needed to put a simple (REMOVEABLE) waist-strap on this bag. When you have to walk through Dallas airport with a stuffed XL Duffel and wait in line or whatever and you have other bags and the straps are supposed to help they do not help for very long... These weak straps will make your shoulders tired in no time at all!!!

                      The dimensions of this bag exceed the maximum allowed by most airlines by over 3". This could cost you a $200 oversize charge on American Airlines.

                        I used my previous bag for nearly 15 years. Finally had to buy a new one, and man was I disappointed. The removal of the wrap around carry handles absolutely ruined this bag.

                            I bought this bag because of the great reviews and perhaps I just got a dud...I took it on a camping trip where it rained and my contents got wet. Unfortunately, I can return it but I'll be sending it in for replacement. I was specifically looking for a waterproof bag.

                                I ordered a XL bag however I felt it was a little too big for my needs, so I returned it for a small. I liked it so much I then ordered a medium. I have to tell you these duffel bags are made with the same durability as every other Northface item. I absolutely love them & know that they'll last a very long time!

                                  Bought this bag to protect my Deva70 pack during air travel. It fir my entire pack plus left room for extras. It's everything I was hoping for and then some.

                                    I bought this duffel for my son. He is a commercial diver and was tired of carrying his dive gear in a large awkward heavy plastic lock box. Though the box had a handle and wheels it was still a beast to maneuver. My boy said when he join his current company he noticed all the divers used large duffels to carry their suits and gear and that most of the duffels were surplus military bags. He said when he arrive for work with the TNF duffel the other divers took notice of its size and tough construction. Its large enough to hold his fins, boots, wet suit, dry suit, harness, mask, helmet, ..everything! The color combo of the black with bright spruce green straps make for easy recognition with the other duffels loaded into the dive truck or locker. The duffel still needs the test of time, but initial impression and one week on the job my son said this bag is more than expected. Which in this case is a good thing.
