Base Camp Duffel (Medium) 2015
It's not your average duffel bag. Made from a durable laminate material, the Base Camp Duffel is a bomber of a bag. Amply resilient to be roughed around in-flight, or to be transported up a mountain via a yak, this is one burly duffel bag. 72-liter volume provides ideal storage for weekend, or extended weekend trips lasting three to four days.

Hi Louise, Although the North Face Base Camp Duffel bags are extremely robust and make great general use bags, they are not suitable for use as haul bags. There are too many straps to get caught on the way up, and the bag is not designed to be hauled up a rock face from a single point. A dedicated haul bag such as the Metolius Half Dome is a much better option. Hope that helps, Dave.
