The reputation of this bag is certainly correct. It's a great bit of kit!
I spent a long while trying to replace my overly used Dakine bag; in doing so I looked at Duffel bags from Mountain Equipment, Rab and this from TNF. In comparison, it's so clear how much more robust the TNF bag is.
It's also cavernous. The medium easily fits all my wakeboardig gear and would do me for a week or two away. In fact, it'll be hucked in the boot full of walking gear for Scotland in a few months time.
Best duffel available. Buy one and it'll probably be with you a lifetime.
Can't fault the service from this company - the bag arrived within 2 days. As you would expect from North Face, it's a quality product - I had stupidly ordered the wrong size but my refund / exchange was processed within a couple of days with no quibble at all.
Would definitely recommend both the product and the company.
The bag seems pretty indestructable - the zip is a bit stiff at first but overall, pleased with the quality and looks. If you are looking for something with a lot of pockets then this is probably not the bag for you - theres a flat mesh zip pocket internally and a smaller pocket externally on one end. Very roomy inside (I now have the small size) and easy to carry with either rucksack straps or the grab handles.
