Description

Gobbles up your gear and keeps it safe from Boston to Beijing.

Imagine a hungry, hungry hippo with its jaws wide open and its leathery tough hide ready to put up with years of travel. Basically, that's the Patagonia Black Hole 60L Duffel Bag. With double-thick fabric, a waterproof coating, and adjustable backpack straps for long hauls, there's not much that this gear back can't swallow up and carry for you. Unlike the hippo, the Black Hole does have an exterior organizer pocket and a padded bottom. So in that sense, this expedition bag has the upper hand.

  • Removable shoulder straps with a padded back panel offer a comfortable long-haul carry solution
  • Double-layer fabric is abrasion-resistant and coated with water-resistant DWR to keep your gear dry
  • Four corner-mounted webbing daisy chains give you a place to tie down big loads

Patagucci Wins Again!

Once again Patagonia makes a killer product!!

This pack is wonderful, its just the right size for any weekend/overnight trip. My boyfriend even used this as his main pack for his 2 week travel skiing Japan.

You don't have to worry about checking this bag, it will fit perfectly in any overhead storage when you fly.

With this burly material you don't have to worry about the inside getting trashed, it is safe from all the elements :) I definitely recommend this bag to anyone!

If I take off the backpack straps, are the halves of the the plastic buckles attached to the bag still stuck on there or can I remove them as well?

Best Answer Responded on

The halves will be on there, they are sewn in directly to the bag.

PERFECT SIZE!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love this Duffel! Often make quick trips to Cali and Nevada to see friends and family and never had a problem using it as a carry on. The size is perfect for packing clothing up to 5 days long. However I think you could probably pack more for longer adventures. Straps are comfy on the shoulders easy to adjust and the handle on top has a great snap closure to get a good grip. The end haul-handles seem durable and strong. Had a run in with a little drizzle and the rain just ran off the bag with no problem. The 2 zippered internal mesh pockets keeps small items nice and organized. The Exterior zip pocket makes it easy to get to your stuff quickly. Overall awesome bag and seems super durable!

Would this model fit in the overhead compartment on an airplane? Would the 90L be too big?

Responded on

Typically, airlines restrict carry-on baggage to maximum linear measurement of 45 total inches. This one, according to the listed specs, tallies up to 47.5, but honestly, I think they would harangue you for a couple extra inches. The 90L, though, would probably be required to check, as that is substantially larger than this model.
Hope this helps.

Best Answer Responded on

The 90 is definitely too big, but the 60L here is the perfect carry on size.

Responded on

I have carried on the 60L twice with no issues.

Exactly the right size

Simply put this is a great travel bag. The bag is tough and comfortable to carry or wear as a backpack.

Extremely Well-Made and Cavernous

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use this bag to lug around large amounts of clothing, accessories and toiletries, as I am always on the move. The main compartment holds a surprising amount, more than it even appears, and holds up well to full-capacity loads and even excessive, tightly packed ones. All seams, handles and protective layers(on bottom) have held up perfectly - although I have not used this bag in extreme outdoor conditions with sharper, more uneven ground . The backpack handles are a great convenience, and although the bag has only two interior pockets, mesh on inside of flap, and one exterior pocket, I have to say the beauty of this bag is the durability and huge capacity it exhibits. Not at all unhappy about a lack of pockets and slots, etc. I am extremely pleased with this purchase and feel it is an excellent value at full price.

Tough and roomy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My husband and I got this bag to use on a month long trip through Indonesia. We wanted a bag that was tough and could hold up to some wet conditions as we traveled by boat and encountered some rain. The Black Hole did not disappoint.
We were able to use it as a carry on on our flights and it held everything we needed during the day. The back pack carry was also super convenient and we ended up using it as a backpack 80% of the time (either on front while we had our backpacking packs on or as our day pack).
We trusted the weather proofing enough that this became the place we stored our computer and all electronics when we traveled by boat. Not that its totally a dry bag by any means, but it was resistant enough.
After a full month of travel and heavy use the bag still looks brand new.
The only thing the bag is missing is a couple more large internal compartments for organization, but that might decrease the versatility.

Perfect bag for a carry on

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I was looking for a carry on bag for active vacations and this is perfect. It can cinch down to a carry on size or you can cram it with stuff, take off the backpacking straps, and check it. Seems to be sturdy material although I've only used it on 2 excursions. I have the green and love the color.

The only kind I like! I got the 60L in the rubellite pink ..not only is the color awesome :), the size is perfect! Seems when filled it could fit as a carry on, I have not had to use it for that , Yet :) though. It's Perfect for when I need enough for a weekend or week long trip. Great for my ski gear in the winter, using it for climbing trips, river trips..although not a dry bag, this bag has been there for me on numerous occasions. The backpack straps are super comfy and padded. If not using those straps, the regular haul loops on either end are great too. Thick material, sturdy snap closures. Zippered pockets inside and out. I am for sure getting more sizes in this bag..so many uses.

great size great versatility

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have the 90L version and have loved it for several long trips. I wanted a smaller one for carry on luggage and quicker weekend trips. judging by other carry on luggage i have used in the past this size looks like it would be no problem, have not taken it on flight yet to confirm.

A Picture is worth . . .

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

We have used the 120L and the 60L for international travel. They are simply amazing. Here, in Komodo National Park Indonesia, getting ready to board a liveaboard dive boat. On a canoe trip in Northern Maine, on the Penobscot River, no need for a dry bag. This was enough. Rugged, water proof, light weight and attractive. Best duffels I have ever owned.

So Light and easy to cram in any space. Ended up buying 4 sizes in total. Easy to cram into the limited space of a 911 for my last Yosemite trip.

Would this work as a carry-on bag? Or is it too big?

Responded on

It's far too big. 30L is about as big as you can fit into an overhead compartment. Maybe 40 if it's a skinny bag, but a full 60L bag definitely won't fit.

Responded on

The Black Hole 60 is an awesome carry-on, I use mine all the time.

Best Answer Responded on

I've used ours many times, domestic and internation. I think it is actually the perfect size for carry on personally.

Patagonia 60L Black Hole Rocks!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Two years ago I bought a 90L Black Hole duffel to shuttle gear to/from backpacking trips. That bag was a little larger than I liked, so... last year, I got the 60L version. This duffel is built like a tank (14.7-oz, 1200-denier polyester with a TPU-film laminate, DWR finish and a padded bottom). The zippers are heavy duty and operate smoothly. There are three modes of carry: top handles, "haul loops" on each end and removable, padded shoulder straps. Other Black Hole reviewers have bemoaned the lack of a single shoulder carry strap. This isn't a problem for me and you could add one if you like (adjustable shoulder straps are available at travel/luggage stores). For quick-grab items, there's a small zippered pocket on the outside and there are two zippered mesh pockets inside of the lid. The rest of your gear simply goes into the Black Hole's gaping maw. Patagonia's 60L Black Hole is a pleasure to own... highly recommended.

Suggestion: Before spending $120 on a 60L duffel bag, check capacity by making a mock-duffel out of cardboard - 23.5"(length) x 13"(width) x 11"(height).

Does anyone know if the 60L would be big enough for a pair of size 12 snowboard boots, helmet, base layers, pants and jacket?

Responded on

The 60 liter should be plenty large to fit those items plus additional space for more clothing. The dimensions of this bag are 23.5" x 13" x 11"

Suggestion: Before spending $120 on a 60L duffel bag, make a mock-up out of cardboard - 23.5"(length) x 13"(width) x 11"(height). Obviously, the cardboard wont "give" like the real deal, but you'll get a good feel if this size is right for you. I've bought both 90L and 60L versions and, for my purposes, I like the 60L better.

No complaints!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I went through 2 North Face duffel bags (the small and medium size ones) before settling on this patagonia bag and loving it! TNF small bag (42L) was too small and medium (72L) was too big. At 60L, this Patagonia bag was just right! (I will sign this review "Goldilocks" :) ) I also love the extra compartments on the Patagonia. 1 front pocket and 2 on the inside of the top flap. Perfect for a girl like me who wants a place for everything and everything in its place. The material of bag seems a little less rugged and thick compared to TNF, but it's perfect for me and my use. I found the TNF material to be too rugged (if there's such a thing), making it too bulky, heavy and harder to carry. I would definitely recommend this bag to anyone looking for a great 60L duffel.

Great size for a weekend trip if you travel lightly. The small zip up side pocket is too small for travel documents or boarding passes and essentially worthless. The shiny blue material is hideous but functional. Would be 5 stars if it weren't so ugly. (I guess it's in the eyes of the beholder) There was a green/black color combo in the 45L that was ok looking but was too small for my needs.Even with the cosmetics, It will likely be my "go to" travel bag for flights. I ended up using the back pack straps almost exclusively, even though I put on a shoulder strap with small carabiners.

Killer hauler

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I spent a month (give or take) living out of this bag traveling around Croatia. The volume was perfect for swallowing a few changes of clothes, sandals, and the camera... but not so big that it felt unwieldy or excessive. The pack-straps make throwing it on and running across town from the ferry to catch a bus a breeze, and the exterior is durable enough that it still looks like new after a dozen bus trips in the cargo hold, about the same number of flights, and a handful of car trips between. I never had any trouble fitting it in the overhead compartments on any of the flights I was on... even when stuffed to it's capacity. On the rare flights I did check it- it was easy to spot coming down the conveyor too. I wish it had waterproof zips on it just to sweeten the protection it offers your stuff a bit. But even without, I wouldn't hesitate to buy this bag again.
