The North Face Base Camp Travel Canister

The North Face Base Camp Toiletry Kit – sporty toiletry bag for adventure travelers

The North Face Base Camp Travel Canister is a toiletry kit for sporty travelers. Made from super durable water and abrasion-resistant fabric, the Base Camp will hold up to the abuse of a weeklong backpacking trip or a month-long road trip.

A D-shaped zipper gives you easy access to the main compartment and some internal mesh pockets provide some organization for your smaller goods. The Base Camp looks like a like a little duffel bag; it is super compact so it will easily stash in your larger duffel or backpack. If you don’t have room in your pack, two exterior daisy chains allow the bag to be strapped securely to any pack.

The Base Camp doesn’t fold out and hang like the nifty Sea to Summit Hanging Toiletry Bag, but it does have an interior strap that releases so you can hang the travel canister from a towel rack or a tree branch.
