    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.

    Easy, Durable and Versatile

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've owned some other tough duffel bags in the past and this one has got to be my favorite. The best part is that the bag easily sits erect while empty. You dont need to push the corners out, or make sure you are using all that space on the side, the walls are a bit more sturdy.



    I travel with it, use it as a gym/adventure bag. Picture shown has a full face Bell Helmet to give you a frame of reference.

    Easy, Durable and Versatile

    One Bag - All Purposes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Finally a bag that can server me in many ways. I love the size and compact capability. When near water, I don't worry about it since the thing is waterproof. When packing soft goods, i don't worry about stuffing the thing, or throwing it around... it's extremely durable.

    My Newest Jam

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this bag. I'm constantly going on weekend trips and just need a good, versatile bag for camping, traveling, or just overnight. This duffle does it all. I got this 60 L because I knew I didn't need anything overwhelmingly large, and the 45 is a bit too small to be versatile, if you ask me. I love the shoulder straps. They look intimidating to attach, but the guide that Kyle L. posted down below is super helpful. It has a couple pockets that help you organize your essentials, and surpasses its seemingly tight capacity. You won't regret this bag.

    Finally, My Perfect One-Bag Carry-On!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I spent 5-6 years searching for that perfect one-bag carry-on. I looked at Red Oxx, MEI, Tom Binn, Eagle Creek, and the lot. I bought and used both the Patagonia MLC and eBags Weekender. I am a 5'2" female, and nearly everything I tried (except the MLC) is way too big for my frame. Finally, here is Patagonia's Black Hole duffel - my search is finally over!
    - It's like the TARDIS; it's bigger on the inside. Any organization I manage with packing cubes.
    - It has a great durability-to-weight ratio and is waterproof
    - It has real shoulder straps!
    Technically the 45-liter bag may not confirm to max legal carry-on specs, but it can usually slide if you don't overstuff it. This thing rocks.

    Excellent Bag!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this bag and one larger size to replace some Patagonia duffle bags that I have had for over 20 years. This bag comes stuffed in one of the inner zipper pockets of the bag and can be a little challenging to unstuff, but it is possible!! The size of this one is perfect for a long weekend or a few days worth of gear. The zippers are very durable and allow you to stuff quite a bit of gear inside without the worry of the zipper busting. I love the feature of the backpack straps, which makes for easy transport (my old bags didn't have this feature). Smaller internal pocket allows you to keep up with smaller items that you don't want to have to dig to the bottom of the bag to find. Outer material can withstand some rain if you get caught in a light shower while traveling, although it's not a waterproof bag. It says you can stow the bag back inside the zippered stow pocket it came in, however I think that would be a real struggle to achieve. Overall I've been pleased with this bag so far and if it holds up as long as my other Patagonia luggage I'll be very happy!

    My go-to duffel bag!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This bag rocks! I use it for everything from a gym bag to my airplane carry on. The material is super durable and has a nice DWR finish in case you end up getting a little wet. The backpack straps are a nice touch when your bag gets heavy and you don't feel like carrying it like a normal duffel.



    What always surprises me is how much stuff I can cram into this bag! I can fit my full mountain bike setup, including shoes, full length knee pads, and full face helmet with room to spare. Even packed to the brim it fits perfectly in the overhead bins on airplanes which means you don't have to do those annoying last minute bag checks.



    If you have any questions about this bag, or any other luggage on the site, please contact me directly.

    My go-to duffel bag!

    Great product! FANSTASTIC Service

      The black hole bags are impressive to say the least, this one was purchased as a gift for a new high school graduate. What has impressed me even more was just how fast it got here! Less than 24 hours! Thank you Patagonia for an awesome product, and thank you to back country for amazing service!

      Great Duffle

        This duffel is perfect for weekend getaways or even week long adventures. I love how the bag has waterproofing so that if it gets rained or splashed it doesn't get very wet. Testing further for air travel, Ill keep you'll posted.

        Great Travel or Gym bag

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        One of the worst problems that I run into with duffels and backpacks is properly storing my climbing and camping gear, but the Black Hole has fixed that for me. Living up to it's name, I have been able to fit into the duffel: a sleeping bag, sleeping pad, tent, 12 quickdraws, an ATC, a 70 meter rope, a couple of headlamps, chalk bag, climbing shoes, a harness, and a few pieces of clothing. All of that fit without me having to sit on top of it to get it zipped up.

        The 900D polyester ripstop seems to be incredibly durable and although I haven't put it to the full test, I have no concerns about doing so. The protective padded base has already been tested on plenty of sharp rocks though and has held up without issue. The internal compression straps make it easy to pack in a lot of equipment without struggling to get the zippered closed as well. Finally, the shoulder straps offer a comfortable and alternative carry method in case you needs your hands free.

        The only problem with this bag, as my roommate who has his own put it, is that I don't have 6 more.

        A final note, don't be duped, the shoulder straps are hidden in the inner pocket and are easy to attach as you can see in the review below!

        It is perfect

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        It's hard to know how good this bag is when you never reach its limit. It does anything and everything and maintains its color and durability. The new back straps are awesome and nice that they are easily removable.

        It is perfect

        Funk-a-licious

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have had this bag for a few months now and I must say that it screams FUNK! I went with the 60L and I use it for everything from storing gear for the gym to one day surf missions. I love the backpack option and the zippers are very rugged. The down fall to the bag is the caring handle and straps. They are not removable. When using the backpack option they often get in the way. Making these removable would add more milky-way to this far out galaxy of a bag...

        Terrific Buy! So clutch!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Not only does this bag collapse into almost nothing, it is very durable and hardy. I bought it to travel from Seattle back to Philadelphia as a carry on and it worked wonders. I was able to back 9 days worth of clothes and gear into the bag along with the assistance of one compression sack. Had zero issues getting it onto the plane. I look forward to using it in a more camping setting but if it performs anything like it already has I will be even more impressed.

        Perfect travel bag

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I LOVE this bag. It is super durable and I never worry about stuffing it FULL and having the seams or zippers hold up. Great quality.

        There is ample room and always ends up fitting way more than I expect it to fit.

        This bag is great for flying too. I have been able to take it on as a carry on, no problem, and the backpack straps are pretty comfortable!

        Great carry-on and travel bag

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I was originally planning to pass on this bag, since I already had a wheeled carry-on, but after my wife's showed up at the house, I couldn't resist. I packed this thing to the brim for a week long trip and was a little concerned the flight attendants might have something to say about it, since it is technically larger than they allow. I threw it on my back and walked right through the gate with no issues, and it even seemed to fit in the overhead bins better than most others' carry-ons. The extra loops were great for attaching extra carabiners and even strapping a day pack to. In between trips, I think this will make a great climbing bag.

        Great bag for travel

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I've used this bag a couple of times already for traveling. It fit in even the smallest of overhead compartments. The backpack straps are very comfortable. I bought it because a friend that has one had recommended it and I would recommend it as well.

        Great Duffle Bag

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        It's not called "Black Hole Duffle Bag" for nothing. It holds a lot of stuff. I just found a pair of socks I thought I lost on a fall trip in minePerfect for a weekend in the desert or if packed well will work for week long trips abroad. Great, durable fabric, shoulder straps and cool colors make this a bag everyone should own.

        Unanswered Question

        This DRW coating is not explained. Please elaborate.
        Is this duffel waterproof? Can it be made waterproof? If so what to use for waterproofing?

        Hi , has anyone taken this bag as carry on luggage in a plane? Do you know if it's too big? Many thanks!

        How do you fold it back into its pocket for storage?

        Unanswered Question

        What are the interior colors and how dark/light is it for the interior of all the duffle colors available including classic red? I'm looking for interior colors that are light so it is easier to find things. I don't want to be lost in a "black hole"!

        Does this bag have the traditional single over the shoulder strap or just the backpack style straps?

        Is the 60L carry-on size?

        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.

        Best Answer

        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!!!

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

        Best Answer

        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!

        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?

        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)
