The North Face Base Camp Duffel Bag

After a long, boring day at the office we’ve all been distracted by day dreams of backpacking through tropical rainforests and exploring lavish landscapes.

So as The North Face celebrates the 30th birthday of one of its most iconic products- the Base Camp Duffel– could this be the time to take the plunge?


Not only has its anniversary introduced a new, special edition range of colours and print; the iconic bag has been further improved with added features.


The new end-cap zippered compartment allows you to separate your belonging securely. Whilst the new side zippered pocket allows enough space for essentials such as a phone or wallet and makes sure they’re easily accessible.


The 30-year-old Base Camp Duffel was innovative and unique when it was first released in 1986; as fact recognised by Peter Athans, a long-standing member of The North Face Global Athlete Team, who has high praise for the renowned bag, stating:

“Before the Base Camp Duffel we used to buy bags that were cheap and expendable. […] The introduction of the Base Camp Duffel brought with it completely different attributes: it is extremely durable, colourful, easy to pack and –thanks to the shoulder straps- easy to carry.”


The new limited edition product range is available now in sizes XS (33 ltr) up to XL (132 ltr) with prices starting at £85 RRP.
