Base Camp Duffel by The North Face
Kilimanjaro climbing groups typically rely on porters—think of them like Tanzania’s Sherpas—to haul tents and supplies between camps. (You can backpack the whole way, of course, but it’s not as common.) Porters typically ferry up climbers’ gear in duffel bags, and one popular pick is the North Face Base Camp Duffel. The medium-sized Base Camp has 71 liters of capacity, which is more than enough for a single hiker. The Base Camp’s tough fabric is also weather-resistant—essential on a mountain trek—and comes with detachable shoulder straps, which makes it easy to heft the bag around airports and on bus journeys through Africa.
