"This is my second Base Camp Duffel. My first was a medium and has served me well for several years. I purchased the small for weekend type trips where less gear is required. These bags are bombproof and for the most part waterproof although I wouldn't try to submerge them. The small size is perfect to strap to my motorcycle for an overnight trip.This bag does not come with a carry strap like the medium but does concern me because there are several handles on the bag to grab on to. eBags delivery wast fast and the price (sale) was excellent."
"I use this bag as my carry on, it is durable and can withstand anything the airline throws at it. Have purchased other sizes of the North Face Duffel for traveling, light weight, don't use half of my luggage weight on the suitcase."
