Life's biggest question finally answered.

Nobody knows what's in a black hole, but you know that your climbing, hiking, and traveling gear is in Patagonia's Black Hole 45L Duffel Bag. Inspired by rugged-yet-light alpine packs, the Black Hole features a burly ripstop fabric filmed in a TPU laminate and coated with DWR for the ultimate in wilderness-worthy protection. The padded base protects your gear throughout the trip. Internal organizers and zippered mesh pockets organize all the small things, while the external side pocket stows the duffel for compact storage. Compression straps prevent your gear from bouncing around whether you're traveling via airplane or four-wheeler.

  • Laminated ripstop fabric with DWR finish
  • Protective padded base
  • Zippered top access
  • Internal organizers and zippered mesh pockets
  • Duffel stows inside zippered side pocket

Patagonia Quality

    I was torn between TNF's Base Camp Duffel Bag or this but settled on this based on brand. It's a perfectly sized overhead bin carry-on for air travel. I particularly like how the entire bag can be folded in its side pocket. There's a few small pockets though it'd be great to have one larger enough for shoes. Otherwise the usual quality from Patagonia, definitely happy with my choice.

    Where are the removable backpack straps?

    Hey Lauren

    I'm so sorry sadly this bad does not come with removable backpack straps. I have notified our content people to make this change so that further customers are not confused. I apologize that we missed it earlier and thank you for bringing it to our attention.


    good catch Lauren. The next size up, the 60L Black Hole does have the removable backpack straps.
