    Ready for the daily grind.

    Just like a bearded mountain man who wields an axe with manliness, the Patagonia 1465cu in Black Hole Messenger Bag oozes burliness and confidence. Since it’s made from tough 450D polyester ripstop with a TPU-film laminate and DWR finish, this messenger bag resists stains and moisture. It stays fresh and clean during your travels, even if that involves sitting next to a drooling baby on the plane. Inside the roomy main compartment are multiple pockets and a padded laptop sleeve, which are easily secured with the buckle closure. It also features a padded carry handle and adjustable shoulder strap, and it’s Bluesign Approved (unlike a rugged mountain man).

    So many uses, including as a diaper bag!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Love the versatility of this messenger. Works great when I need to pack my laptop and lunch to work... but really got it to be our diaper bag when our new baby arrives. Super easy to wipe clean, lots of inner compartments, and big enough to haul all the necessities (and then some)

    Good for work, or staying unemployed

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I got this for my sister as a college graduation present as she looked for a new job. Her feedback a month later was that it "would be great for work, or just staying unemployed." Given that she is living in Bellingham with the opportunity to fish, kayak, paddleboard, mountain bike or hike daily without paying rent, I think the latter is more likely. Ahh millennials.

    She also said she liked all the pockets and the space it offered, but wished there was a water bottle holder.

    Truly a Black Hole!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This bag is incredible and very user friendly. I've always used backpacks in the past, but wanted something a bit more easy to access and with more storage, as well as a dedicated laptop sleeve.

    Storage in the Black Hole Messenger Bag is very intuitive - I use the external zipper for any necessities that need quick access - wallet, phone, sunglasses, gum, etc and there is plenty of room in this exterior pocket for lots of junk.

    The main compartment is huge, and I can store multiple notebooks, a 24oz AVEX bottle and my 15" laptop inside with ease. This still leaves room for a light rain jacket or layering piece.

    I took this bag as my carry-on on a recent weekend trip and it was the perfect traveling companion through the airport.

    The waterproof fabric used with this pack is rugged and should stand the test of time (just like I'd expect from Patagonia). I don't use the external webbing much, but can see the use for attaching a water bottle or hanging a watch, etc. Overall, an awesome bag!

    Awesome bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had this bag for several years now and it is simply amazing. True to the name, in the same form as their duffels, it is truly a black hole if you aren't careful. It has a zippered pocket with spots for pens and cards or other items and a padded laptop sleeve in the main compartment. The straps/buckles that secure the flap closed also double as compression straps if you don't have much in the bag which makes it nice so things are bouncing around everywhere. The padded shoulder strap is easily adjusted - whether you want to have it over your shoulder, in a vertical carry, or across the back as you're pedaling your fixie across town, there is a comfortable way to carry it in any situation. The handle on the top is nice if you want to simply carry it like a briefcase as well. The DWR coating in the black hole form makes it nice to keep your things dry, or for when you spill your coffee all over on the morning commute. Compared to other messenger bags I've owned, this one has been the most durable and functional.

    Awesome bag

    Perfect Travel Bag

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

    Fantastic size for travel carry on or weekender bag. I can get my laptop plus my personal items and a full,change of clothes in this. I also have room for my coffee travel mug and a liter water bottle. Patagonia quality all the way in design and materials.
