The North Face are one of the leading purveyors of outdoor accessories and you know that if you opt for a carry from their stable of luggage and holdalls, it will be a rugged beast indeed and won’t let you down from either a style or functionality point of view and that is certainly something that can be applied to the excellent looking The North Face Base Camp Holdall.

This stealthy looking number will meet all your travel requirements in 2014 and boasts plenty of features that will help to persuade you to part with the £100+ price tag. This uncompromising fellow is made from  a durable laminate ballistic nylon and bulked up with extra bartacks and double stitching which basically means its not going to wimp out when you inevitably overload it with luggage as us men our prone to doing.

If you live an outdoor, active lifestyle, you’re going to need an accessory that can keep up in the performance stakes and this The North Face Base Camp Holdall is exactly that and much more besides. Capable of holding a rather substantial 90 litre payload of possessions, this awesome carry also lets you port it about in a number of different ways to ensure you’re never put out or made uncomfortable by carrying it around.

Weighing in at under 2KG empty, you’ll be able to get plenty in there without making the baggage handlers at the airport irate as well so for those after a super resilient and painfully stylish piece of luggage in 2014, this is surely it.

You can carry it on your back like a rucksack, carry it around in your hands with the straps or drag it through the airport concourse like a boss – the choice is yours. A highly durable and impressive piece of luggage and one that certainly won’t let your down and which can be found at online specialists like John Lewis.
