    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.

    Great travel duffle

      My girlfriend is obsessed with these bags and has them now in every size. The 45L is too small to pack most of her boots and 90L is too large to take on as a carry on. The 60L is perfect for a weekend getaway. I got her the blue and it is now her favorite color of the four.

      Versatile!

        For People that pack light such as myself, this is the perfect bag for up to a week get away! Unless you are in need of shirts and ties, this will hold all the essentials for a summer trip or warm destination get away. Also, the straps lend the bag to being worn as a "backpack" which comes in super handy doing the airport sprint from gate to gate.

          Buy one!

            This bag is exactly what I was looking for. I needed a bag that can do it all and this is that exact bag I was looking for. It has been out in the rain and all of my belongings seemed to stay very dry. Patagonia is great because they have a lifetime warranty and they stand behind their products. There a lot of varieties of pockets that come with his bag and this is very nice to have, you can never have to many pockets. It comes with the backpack straps that are very nice to have but I do with it came with a removable over the shoulder strap to use. Other than that one thing, I love everything about this bag.

            perfect carry on

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            While the dimensions of this bag are slightly larger than the standard carry on size no one will ever know when you strap this thing on as a backpack. A sneaky way to get more out of your carry on. Would not necessarily recommend to fly with on Ryanair though. I bought this bag to travel with over the holidays and was so pleased with it. It fit 4 days worth of clothes, Christmas presents, toiletries, an extra pair of shoes, my DSLR, laptop, and a bulky sweater like it was nothing. The mesh pockets are great for undergarments and the pocket that the duffel stuffs into fit my sneakers in with room to spare. The bag is also super durable and waterproof which I'm grateful for. I had to check my carry on in at the gate and even though it was raining when we landed the contents stayed perfectly dry.
            This bag has now become my gear hauler for boarding and climbing days. It fits my boots/helmet/pants/coat/snacks/jetboil with a bit of room to spare.

            Perfect for the weekend adventures

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            First of all, I'd like to give a huge thanks to Patagonia and Backcountry.com for hand selecting me to test and review the Blackhole Duffel. Now lets get on with it...

            A duffel bag is one of those things I've been using since I played sports in grade school. Not great for organizing things but great for caring a large amount of gear around. Before I got the Patagonia Blackhole duffel, I thought 'ok cool, just another duffel'. But when I got it, it was clear that Patagonia took the same old boring duffel bag to another level.

            First of all, the bag is made with a laminated ripstop material and has a DWR finish to give you a durable and water-resistant exterior for keeping all your goodies inside nice and safe. On the inside, you'll find two zippered pockets located on the lid made of mesh so you can easily see what is in the pockets, one side pocket that is accessible from outside or inside the bag (this also serves as a stash pocket for the duffel when not in use), and two straps in the main compartment for a little more help with organization and keeping things secure.

            For me, this is the ultimate weekend duffel because of the organization made possible thanks to the pocket configuration. I've also found that the side pocket fits a pair of shoes so if you got some muddy sneaks after a weekend of trail running or hiking, you can keep them away from all your other belongings – awesome. This has certainly come in handy for me with traveling for races and quick weekend trips.

            No Brainer No Brainer Travel Bag

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            Bought this bag as I needed a solid replacement duffel for whatever life was gonna throw at me. So far, I have camped with this bag, traveled by air with this bag, and lived out of this bag while bumming on couches.

            Not only is it bomb proof but its also water resistant which takes away all my worries. It holds a good deal of gear/clothing/waders/ dirty clothes all while holding up to whatever you throw at it, or throw it at.

            The only thing that is unfortunate about this bag is that it does not come with a shoulder strap for you to sling over one shoulder. However, you could probably cross the backpack strap from one side to the other in order to create a shoulder sling. I just ripped off a shoulder strap from another bag and attached it to the black hole, problem solved.

            Great Duffel- Perfect Carry-On size

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

            I got this bag for traveling. So far I have used it on a flight. It was great for a 3 day trip! Great size, great material, good pocket on the inside. I did a lot of research on duffel bags. The top choices are usually this one and the North Face Base Camp duffel. This one, won all around, in every area. It is just as solid as the North Face with the addition of being lighter weight, with a pocket and backpack straps. The design is awesome, love the colors.

            The one thing I wish were different about this bag is the straps. There is a nice padding on them. I wish that the padding went the entire length of the strap. I like to attach one strap across the bag at an angle to the opposite side, lengthen the strap the full length and carry it as a duffel bag. Padding would help when the bag is full. It's a small issue, but I hope Patagonia considers it for the next model. Over all very happy with this product!

            Side note: The straps are a little tricky to attach. You put the plastic D-rings through the opposing loops by putting them in at an angle.

            Perfect

            • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

            I have owned a couple different black hole bags in the past, and now know not to loan to friends and family as they will not return such a sweet bag. In the end i needed a travel bag that will be at home on a desert expedition, worldwide travel and anything in between. The black hole duffel is hands-down the most durable bag on the market. You are not only purchasing what will be your most favorite pack, but the most durable, water-resistant and good looking duffel bag ever made (IMHO). Do yourself a favor and grab yourself one.

            The perfect carry-on bag

              This is the perfect bag for any trip. I use this bag primary for climbing trips, super durable and easy to clean out once you get a bunch of dirt in it. This bag also doubles as my carry-on bag when I fly.

              The perfect carry-on bag

              Durable!

              • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

              I use this bag primarily for weekend trips and ultimate frisbee tournaments. It's incredible.



              The goods (and greats!):

              1. It's waterproof. Maybe not throw-in-the-river waterproof, but downpour-proof. Too many weekends to count I've been outside all day with this bag and had the PNW living up to its grey, rainy reputation, and everything inside stays dry. Wet grass? Who cares. Throw that sucker on the ground.

              2. Scratch-resistant. This bag is made of really durable materials. drag it along concrete? Fine. Dog stepping all over it in the back of the car? A-OK.

              3. Can be used as an airline carry-on. If it's stuffed full, it may be a tight squeeze, but it can be done. If there's a little extra room, you're golden.

              4. The 60L is a great size for weekend trips. I travel nearly every weekend, and all the things I take with me that fit in this bag include: Sleeping bag. Sleeping pad. Cleats. Chacos. Clothes for two days. Party clothes. Toiletries. Travel towel. 2 days of dog food. Swimsuit (just in case!). Frisbee. Water bottle. Lots of socks. More??

              5. The backpack straps are so excellent. Just really a brilliant move.

              6. The internal pockets easily fit toothbrush/paste, shampoo/conditioner, ibuprofen, bandaids, hair ties, chapstick, travel towel, basically all the things you needs to get out quickly. And because they're mesh it's really easy to find what you need.



              The less-than-greats:

              1. While the backpack straps are awesome, they aren't comfortable for long distances if the bag is full. Without a hip belt it gets really uncomfortable. Getting through the airport is totally fine, but I wouldn't want to hike 5 miles with it. If the bag isn't totally full and thus isn't heavy, then they're fine.

              2. Because it's a duffel, things can get lost inside. I just recently got some luggage organizers and they've made it much better.



              Overall: Yes! Buy it! It will make your life better!

              Happy trails!

              Durable!

              Perfect For Fishing Trips

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

              Bought this bag to use on a two day offshore fishing trip. It fit all the clothing I needed and even a pair of size 13 fishing boots. It also kept items dry when I left the bag out on the deck of the boat.

              If you could only buy one bag

              • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

              I LOVE this duffel! It definitely lives up to its name. I have taken this bag on many week long trips and I can always fit everything I need with room to spare.

              Favorite features
              -Size: The size of this bag is perfect for traveling on airplanes, it fits in the overhead compartment perfectly.
              -Backpack straps: I was traveling with my sister and she was jealous that I could wear the duffel as a backpack, while she was wheeling around her luggage. They are also removable so you can take them off if you don't need them.
              -Zipper: The zippers on this bag are pretty big and beefy. I don't have to worry about breaking the zipper when I'm stuffing this bag as full I can.

              I have the older model, and just got the new one. The front zipper is now accessible from the inside as we well, and there are compression straps in the bag to pack your stuff in even more!

              Just keeps going and going

              • Familiarity:I've used it several times

              Seriously this duffle is amazing for expeditions or traveling in general. If you want something that will hold A LOT of gear, and NOT RIP and for you stuff to NOT GET WET this is your bag. The Material is super abrasion resistant and water resistant so if it's raining whilst getting off the plane you don't have to worry about your gear or clothing getting wet. Also the luggage handlers can toss, kick and drop your bag but the contents will never come out. The only way you are going to get through this bag is if you take a sharp blade to it. Also when you are not using it, it packs down pretty small so it doesn't take up much room. Which is surprising because it hold so much. Anyway what I'm getting at is that this bag is bad ass and will transport your gear safely and together!

              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!

                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)
