The North Face Base Camp Duffel ($110-160)

We hauled these totes through the rugged terrain of northern Patagonia, and they kept our gear safe and dry while getting smashed on trees and weathering out cold nights in the tundra. I even watched Lucas Debari drag one down an entire mountain of snow, horseshit, stumps, mud, and rocks for a couple hours, too. Tough enough for any travel and simple: two pockets, padded backpack straps–all you really need.
