North Face Basecamp Duffel Bag Review and Giveaway

North Face Base Camp Duffel Review

Fancy getting your hands on a fab North Face Basecamp duffel bag? Here’s your chance!

A lifetime of packing at the last minute means I’m a bit of a packing ninja.

My top tip is to have a good selection of luggage. For some trips, a suitcase is best. But other times, you might use a small case on wheels, or a backpack.

I find duffel bags ideal for trips where:

  • You need to pack a lot of kit in a hurry (basically me on EVERY trip)
  • You won’t be carrying your bag for a long distance
  • You’re travelling by coach/train and need to fit your bag into a luggage rack
  • You’re staying somewhere that you might need to fit your luggage into a small space eg a cupboard or under a bunk
  • You want a bag you can use while travelling e.g. as a sports bag or beach bag

The other big win of a duffel bag is that when you get home, it’s easy to store without taking up too much space.

North Face Base Camp Duffel Review

This summer, I’ve been sent the North Face Basecamp duffel bag from Millets. In return, they asked me to put the bag through its paces.

Challenge accepted.

The Basecamp is essentially the Vin Diesel of duffel bags. It’s enormous, it’s tough as anything, and colourful enough that you won’t miss it on a luggage carousel.

As a duffel bag, there are a few features that make this one worth considering:

  • Wow, this thing is tough! It’s a laminate material with double stitching and covered zips that I can promise you is waterproof, dog proof and kid proof.
  • The North Face Basecamp duffel is available in yellow and red – bright colours that aren’t easily lost and you can spot on a luggage carousel. Or you can get it in black if you enjoy the experience of lost luggage.
  • The version I have is the Large size, and holds 95 litres – it’s also available in XL and XXL if you need even more room. You can fit a LOT in this bag.
  • The haul handles can double as ‘rucksack’ style straps, allowing you to carry the bag more comfortably on your back
  • There is a really big, clear, waterproof ID pocket on top, meaning your child shouldn’t forget which bag is theirs
  • Once packed there are straps on the outside allowing you to compress the contents (great if you’re trying to stuff it into a tight spot in the car)
  • Inside the top of the bag there’s a zippered mesh pocket for storing important documents

Tried and Tested

The North Face duffel’s first test was a 4-day school residential. Flea found the bag had plenty of room for all her kit, and it kept everything dry.

One thing I would say for kids is that when full, this bag is pretty heavy to carry on your shoulder. I think kids will tend to use one of the other handles to drag it along the floor. Because, well, kids.

North Face Base Camp Duffel Review

Needless to say, our bag came home with some scuffing in the canvas at the end of the bag. That said, the underlying bag itself stood up to the strain without damage.

At the end of the summer, I used the bag on a road trip up to Scotland to spend time with family.

The North Face Basecamp bag is ideal for road trips. I could stuff it full of clothes and towels for a 3-day beach trip, and it was soft enough to squish down the front of the car’s back seat, leaving the boot free for the family dog. The bag spent plenty of time on the beach and in wet grass, and we found it kept everything dry and cosy.

As an adult, the bag is easy to carry rucksack style. If it’s not full, though, the shoulder straps and haul handles are very comfortable.


Win a North Face Basecamp Duffel with Millets


For me, the biggest downside of the North Face Basecamp duffel is it’s too expensive for me to buy the whole range! This Large bag retails at £115. Luckily for you though, I have one to give away, courtesy of the lovely folks at Millets.

To be in with a chance of winning your own North Face Basecamp duffel bag, all you have to do is comment on this blog post telling me your favourite trip of 2017, and complete the competition widget. Bonus entries are available.

    My favourite day out has been an animal handling day at Camperdown wildlife park where I got to get close to the lemurs and meerkats and ffed them. I loved the gentle and comic lemurs, especially when a young one swung from the keepers ponytail.

    We went to Beetle Bank Farm near York with our granddaughters aged 8, 5 and 1. It’s a lovely little petting farm, smallso it doesn’t get too busy. As well as small animals to hold there are bigger farm animals to see and feed, a large covered circuit with ride on toys, an outdoor play area and bouncy castles of different sizes.
    As it’s relatively small visitors soon start chatting to each other while swapping rabbits for guinea pigs etc which makes for a very friendly atmosphere. There’s also a small cafe.

    Mine was a trip down to York from Scotland. It wasn’t very long but it meant loads as I don’t get to see my best friend very often. The duffel bag would be perfect for train trips to see her!

    We had several fun days out over the August bank holiday weekend when our daughter, son in law and granddaughter joined us in Merseyside. We went to Chester Zoo the first day, then the following day took the ferry across the Mersey to Albert docks and strolled around the funfair and had ice creams. The ferry trip back across the Mersey was made more interesting as our boat was filled with people from South India performing a Hindu ritual where they immerse a statue of Ganesh (the elephant headed god) in the river. Normally this would be done in the Ganges, but for the participants the Mersey was substituted. There was lots of singing, dancing and drumming and overall a very joyous occasion which we really enjoyed as spectators. Quite unexpected but really interesting.

    Our best trip of 2017 was a family trip to Trearadur Bay in Anglesey, currently the setting of the safe house on ITV. The scary house on the cliff, as we called it. The whole family had fun and there were lots of nice restaurants as well as an ice cream parlour. Will be visiting again.

    I went on holiday to Ibiza with my partner. Got to the hotel and it was overbooked by 2 days so they put us up in a hotel a few minutes walk away and upgraded us to all inclusive for the entire stay (including the 2 days we were staying at the other hotel) and didn’t charge us for extra’s that you would normally pay for like the safe key and things like that. Sun was shining the entire time and the sea was crystal clear. Loved it!!

    Best holiday of 2017 was our first family trip to Greece with our baby son. Although only 6 months old at the time, he spent more time in the water than out of it, his choice. He was in 3 x a day, wasn’t worth the issues if we tried to walk past without going in! His confidence was crazy and he got better every time he went in,a proper water baby.

    I love this bag! We go away on short trips regularly and we’re always stuck for a good, big bag when a suitcase just won’t do and a sports bag doesn’t cut it. We go off to do triathlons (swim, run, shoot) and tetrathlon (those three plus cross country on horse back) and we do one day eventing …so you can imagine the kit we take! We always Camp or sleep in a vehicle so this would be perfect!

    My partner passed his driving test in May so this summer was the first time we’d had a car during E summer. One day we took our children to the beach – our 2 year old daughters first visit and the first time our son had been since he was a baby.

    My son has suspected autism and sensory processing issues so I was worried about how he’d handled it. I needn’t have worried as his whole mood and attitude was amazing, it was like he was at one with the sea! I couldn’t get him out of the water. Amazing day out.
