The North Face Rolling Thunder Duffel

December 28, 2008

I spent my holidays traveling home to Colorado Springs, CO, and next week will head back for a 4 day suffer-fest in Ouray, CO for some ice climbing. For both my trip back to see family and my trip out for the ice, I will be bringing along my North Face Rolling Thunder Duffel. The North Face has done an incredible job with their expedition duffels, mainly the Base Camp Series. The Rolling Thunder Duffel is an improvement on an already awesome design. Who doesn't love wheels!? The duffel comes with rollerblade-style wheels which motor over just about anything. The North Face Rolling Thunder Duffel- The Good Top of duffel has an organizer pocket for easy access to plane tickets, passports or whatever you need to keep handy. Handles are wing-designed. They can wrap up around the bag to create extra compression and closure, or lay down flat if you need to tie it to a roof! Retractable handle makes wheeling the Rolling Thunder through crowded airports an easy feat. Comes in medium (80L) and large (138L). Medium size comes with a kickstand to allow bag to stand on its own. For those of you who don't think in liters, the Large rolling thunder easily fits 2 pairs of ski boots, full ski gear outfits for two, helmets, and regular clothes for about a week. The North Face Rolling Thunder Duffel- The Bad All that reinforced PVC tarpaulin material makes for a HEAVY bag. Between the reinforced zippers, wheels, and retractable handle, you're looking at about 10 lbs for the medium size, 15 lbs for the large! There is some debate as to whether or not you can take a size large TNF Rolling Thunder on the airplane... Apparently the Large is 1 inch too long, and is considered to be odd sized luggage, instigating an extra fee at the baggage check. However, in all my travels, I've never had an issue. Still something to keep in mind though. BUY NOW! The North Face Rolling Thunder Duffel
