When it comes to versatility, nothing quite matches the duffel bag. Whether you want to use your duffel as a gym bag, a suitcase, or just an all-purpose bag, you're sure to find something perfect for you at The North Face.
The best duffel bags for multi-purpose use
Keeping a duffel bag on hand is a little like keeping a suitcase, backpack, and tote bag all rolled into one. With varying main compartment sizes, you can fill your duffel with laundry, sports gear, extra books, and more. Pack a weekend bag with your favorite hoodies and pants and hop on the next train to your friend's house. Keep one as your gym bag and fill it with workout clothes and sneakers. A large duffel bag is great for that cross-country road trip you've been planning. You can pack weeks' worth of clothing into the bottom of the bag and still leave room for extra shoes and souvenirs.
Durable travel duffels for years of trips
From check-in to checkout, you need a bag that can withstand some rough handling. Don't be afraid to squish your carry-on bag just a little tighter into the overhead bin. Double stitching and rip-resistant, water-repellent fabric keep your bags together. So go ahead. Take your travel bag on a long hike and just throw it down at your campsite. Stuff more clothes than you think you can fit inside and still manage to fit in your toiletries. Bang your bag on every surface in the house getting up for a super-early flight.
Extra features for convenient duffel bag carry
Keep it comfortable. Padded, ergonomic shoulder straps mean that even if your gate is on the other side of the airport or your hotel is all the way across town, you won't arrive with sore shoulders. The North Face Base Camp Duffel series offers backpack straps for another easy way to carry. Plus, you can use the easy-grab haul handles to carry your duffel in the traditional tote bag style. Compression straps keep your items from shifting, even if you have to run for the next train.
Exterior pouches and zippered pockets offer quick accessibility to items you need frequently. Interior mesh pockets let you organize your personal items. Separate tech, jewelry, underwear, or dirty laundry with ease. Soft-sided duffels are collapsible, so you can fit one easily in a drawer at home until you need it.
Duffel Bag FAQs
Is a duffel bag considered a carry on?
It depends on the size of the bag, how much you pack in it, and how much it weighs after packed. Smaller bags can fit in an overhead bin or luggage rack. Larger sizes will likely need to be checked. It's important to check your individual airline's luggage rules, but generally a carry-on should be no larger than 9 inches x 14 inches x 22 inches.
