There’s nothing worse than a gym bag that reeks like B.O. because you can’t seem to wash the smell out. The North Face Base Camp Duffel Bag is the solution to that. Made from ballistic laminated nylon (that’s code for practically bombproof fabric) it’s the perfect place to toss all your sweaty, muddy gear post-race, and you won’t have to worry about cleaning up the mess later. Simply wipe it down. Four compression straps allow you to wear it like a backpack or sling it over your shoulder like a traditional duffel. It also comes in different sizes, the largest being 155 L, so you’ll have plenty of room for a change of clothes. Plus, the color scheme is ideal for busy race days—the grey bag camouflages dirt but the yellow straps makes it easy to identify in a pile of other racers’ bags. ($100-170; backcountry.com)
