Base Camp Duffle Artist Collab

In celebration of Pride, we worked with four incredible artists across Canada to design one-of-a-kind The North Face Base Camp Duffles inspired by the outdoors.

Scroll down to check out the duffles from each artist – they’re awesome and use everything from textiles to carabiners to paint.

Want to take one home? Enter the raffle by June 30 – tickets are just $10 and all proceeds go to The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD). You can choose which specific duffle you want raffle tickets for on the raffle page.

Why the Base Camp Duffle?

The North Face Base Camp Duffle was inspired by the outdoors. Created in 1986, the iconic expedition duffle is made with 100% recycled body and boot materials and served as the perfect canvas for this project.


The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) is a national organization dedicated to building a future without discrimination for 2SLGBTQI+ youth and communities. Since 2005, CCGSD has grown to become one of the most influential 2SLGBTQ+ organizations in Canada, providing advocacy and education to schools, organizations, and communities across the country. Each year, we reach tens of thousands of Canadian youth in schools through workshops in their classrooms. Our youth outreach and engagement projects reach thousands more youth either virtually or through partnerships with locally-focused community organizations. Learn more about the CCGSD at
