The North Face XL Base Camp Duffel bag from Xavier de Le Rue
The North Face Base Camp Duffel has been donated by big mountain snowboarder Xavier de Le Rue: “This bag is a piece of memory to me.” He carried it across the world; from Antartica to Alaska and through the jungle of Vanuatu to ride an active volcano.
The bag has been restored and labelled with a personal message from Xavier to inspire its new owner to never stop exploring, making it a true one-of-a-kind collector’s piece.

The Società degli Alpinisti Tridentini (SAT) was founded in Madonna di Campiglio in 1872 under the name Società Alpina del Trentino. The founding members wanted to promote the knowledge of the Trentino mountains, the tourism development of the valleys and the "Italianness" of Trentino. The means to pursue these goals were: the construction of shelters, the construction of paths, funding for hoteliers, organization of mountain guides, ascension of peaks and publication of geographical and mountaineering writings.
In 1920 the SAT became a section of the Italian Alpine Club (CAI), whilst remaining an autonomous entity.
