Description

Defies physics.

Tell your astrophysicist and sci-fi friends that Patagonia found out what's in a black hole, or at least the Black Hole 60L Duffel Bag: your climbing, hiking, and traveling gear from your last five-day trip. 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 outdoors protection. The padded base protects your gear throughout the trip, and Patagonia padded the removable shoulder strap and removable backpack straps for comfort. 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.

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

Here's what others have to say...

Is the 60L carry-on size?

Best Answer Responded on

Agnes,

Most US carry-on restrictions are in the neighborhood of 22" x 14" x 9" -- the 60L Black Hole is ~25" x 13" x 10". I've used it as a carry-on five or six times, but not fully packed. If it were 100% full, packed to the gills, you might not get away with it, but for the most part, I'd say yes, it'll work fine as a carry-on.

Let me know if you have any other questions-- I'd be happy to help! I can be reached via email at llabar@backcountry.com or 801.736.6399.

I packed mine to the gills, and though it was about 2.5 inches over the total restriction for American Airlines, no one said a word to me about it, maybe because I had it on my back, and most backpacks are well within guidelines. So for me, this was awesome as a carry on, and I loved getting to use it as a "backpack". But beware that different airlines have different restrictions and also have an up-charge if you claim it as a checked bag AT the airport (rather than doing it online beforehand). But some airlines also let things slide. Worst case scenario, they may tell you it's too big at the gate--just take a couple things out of it and squeeze it down to make it fit in their little size-tester-thingamajigs (something you can't do with a boxy suitcase)--it can surely take the rough handling! :) Good luck!!!

Black Hole

Got the 60L Black Hole, and it's a great addition to the duffel stash! I love how burly the material is, it's super reliable and love the protection. Plus it stashes really well, not as bulky as you may expect from such a thick bag. The biggest plus I love is the pockets- the external pocket is easy to access, and it's awesome that there are two internal pockets as well so the small goods don't get lost in the vortex of your other stuff. And the zippers work seamlessly, seems to be a common issue in working with such thick materials. Overall, great bag for shorter trips or packing light!

What are the dimensions of this bag (L, H, W)?

video that explains the straps and size

this is a great video pulled from the Patagonia site that shows the straps and then the relative size of the bag as well. Check it. If you have any questions, hit any of us up on the chat service and we will be happy to help!

Wondering why they went to 900d from the previous version that is 1200d and how that is heavier duty than the previous version.

Hello uraudi, what a good question. The previous model was made with 14.7-oz. 1,200-denier 100% polyester, whereas the new model is made with 15-oz. 900-denier 100% polyester ripstop. The fabric's weight does affect abrasion resistance, so the newer model is made with "ripstop" polyester, whereas the previous model--though coming in at 1200d--is not listed as ripstop (ripstop refers to the weaving of fibers into the fabric into a diamond or square shape that, when punctured or torn, are better able to stop the tear from growing). You can actually see the difference in the fabric, with the one the right being the new, 900d polyester ripstop (see the characteristic ripstop squares?) with the one on the left being the older model. So, the bottom line is the integrity might be even better in the new model, despite the difference in denier.

I hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply, that answers my question.

Bomb proof bag.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used this bag for traveling through south east Asia. It fits nicely in over head compartment. The straps aren't the most comfortable but great if you are just throwing it on your back for a short trip. It isn't a dry bag, but kept all my belongings nice and dry through a couple downpours.

What are the differences between this and the previous version other than a $10 difference. It also looks like the external attachment points are shifted a bit. Anything else?

Responded on

great question. The Black Hole bags were fully redesigned for this season.
Here are the updates:
New more durable fabric.
Updated pack strap interface - more secure and easier to take on and off
Internal compression straps
The entire bag self stuffs into the front pocket
(we should have a video available soon detailing all of the updates as well)
