    What goes in never comes out.

    Patagonia's Black Hole 25L Daypack has a strong gravitational pull towards your hiking gear, but that doesn't mean you can't fill it with your school work. This daypack takes a nod toward alpine packs, with a light-yet-strong ripstop shell coated with a TPU film and Durable Water-Resistant finish. Heavy-duty molded padding gives the shoulder straps and back panel a comfy ride. A tube port lets the laptop sleeve double as a hydration sleeve, and there are side stretch pockets for water bottles.

    • Padded shoulder straps and back panel
    • Zippered top access
    • Laminated ripstop shell with DWR finish
    • Laptop sleeve doubles as hydration port
    • Stretch-woven side water bottle pockets
    • Item #PAT00Z6

    Travel Bag for the win

      This bag is truly perfect for adventure. I have used it commuting on bikes, walking through the rain, and bustling through airports. It gets the job done while staying durable and looking sleek. Patagonia's Black Hole line is so good.

      Matching backpacks

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I got this backpack for myself (see earlier review) and my boyfriend was so jealous that we now have matching backpacks, it's that great, plain and simple. We're that couple now...


      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Ladies love the Patagonia Black Hole (25L Back)Pack. Seriously, since I bought this, it has started at least one conversation for me with a women. That is 100% more conversations than I've had in the whole year previous, and it was because of the backpack. It's a real conversation starter.

      I use it on my daily bike commute to work, Whole Foods, the bar, and back home. One day at the local Whole Foods a girl said, "nice pack" I said, "thanks, is the mochi good here?" she said, "yes", it was radical! That conversation alone was worth the price of this pack, but if that's not enough for you, here's some other neat stuff;
      The secure and elegant laptop sleeve doubles as a hydration pocket for your favorite hydration bladder.
      If you're a real water fan the stretch-woven side pockets are perfect water bottle holders.
      And the heavy-duty molded back panel is nice on long rides.
      Get this pack if you like water, and nice stuff.

      Fantastic Commuter

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great daily driver for the commuter. It holds everything you will need and has pockets to organize everything. This bag will also protect it's contents from rain and harsh weather.

      Perfect Work Bag

        This backpack has become my go-to work backpack, as the pockets and organization inside make it easy to carry a laptop, notebook, pens, and other personals. Pockets on the side also are great for a water bottle, and a small top pocket are perfect to hold your wallet and keys. Great design, super functional.

        Looks cool. And also functions well.

          I just took this mafuuu to the great sand dunes, and had all my stuff plus laptop GoPro etc in there and with me the whole time. Sand consumes my life but I have yet to find a single grain inside this bag. This is of grave importance, because I just can’t keep using bags that get sand in them once. Plus everyone thinks it looks cool

          Great bag

          • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

          I have several duffel bags and backpacks in the black hole series, and I love them. They are super durable, and work great. This pack in particular is very spacious for the size, and I appreciate the other color on the inside so you can find stuff easier.

          Perfect travel pack

            Over the years I have had several different type of day packs for camping, going international and just day to day use. I was looking for a bag I could take to school and just as easily on a plane to my next overseas destination. This bag accomplishes that. It's simple design just makes it a joy to carry and you can cram so much into it. I believe it is a must have for a daily traveler.

            Great School Bag

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I love that I don't have to worry about my things getting wet. Plus this is a good size that can hold a lot of things but isn't overwhelming. There's lots of small pouches inside for different things but I mostly use the zippered pouch on the top part. I also like that the water bottle holders are tight so things don't fall out but stretch to fit larger Nalgenes. I also like that the laptop section is padded because that makes me feel even safer carrying stuff in this bag. It fits well on the shoulders too. I/ve had it for a couple years now and it still looks brand new.

            Lucky Pack!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            I really dig this bag, and I bring it everywhere with me. In the PNW, it's important to have weather-proof gear. This bag keeps my stuff dry (the material is completely waterproof - the zippers aren't sealed, though, so I am wary about true downpours) on bike rides and my daily commutes. I stuff everything from laptops (great padded pouch) and books in here, to all my climbing gear, my snow stuff... The daisy-chain is tough, the pockets are HUGE, the brain section is awesome, and I really dig the colors! This bag has become my every-day-every-thing partner in crime.

            Durable and Immaculate

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

            So I got this backpack for school purposes and was overly surprised when I actually had it in my hand. The color and description are accurate, the think looks like it could withstand a hurricane, and there are plenty of spaces inside to organize my stuff.

            Great Travel/Day Pack

              I already have two Black Hole duffels that I love so I figured I might give the pack a try too. I'm not used to top zippers like it, but I think I'll get used to it. I love the laminated shell and the pockets seem well thought out. It should server as a great pack for traveling and day hikes.

              Perfect day pack

              • Familiarity: I've used it several times

              Love the thought out use of storage in this bag and is a great size for me. Ive taken it on day hikes and also used it as an overnight bag. Lots of convenient pockets for all of your stuff! cool.

              Bomber In Every Way

              • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

              Excellent pack, I'd give it a 9/10. I've used this bag five days a a week for about 1 year now and it's shown no signs of wear.
              Anything from being thrown around in my car to hold my running gear to working up steep approaches in the rain, to stuffing a bunch of crap in it when I moved.

              Pros: Easily accessible- very intuitive flap and zipper setup, Black Hole material is very high quality and very sturdy, zipper are smooth and easy to operate when under stress, massive cargo space for a light pack, brain pouch is very useful, water bottle pockets

              Cons: While the material is fully waterproof - the zippers are not taped and the back will also soak through in a sustained downpour (it's meant for a situation such as that, just buy a pack cover if that's an issue), water bottle pockets are too snug - they hold a full nalgene but you really gotta cram it in, sternum strap is kinda wimpy - no full strap capacity

              GREAT PACK

              Nice looking "basic" backpack

                This is not a hiking backpack and besides what the description states there is no waist belt to secure this pack without the extra load on your shoulders and back. The bag itself is nice looking and great lightweight pack but not functional for true hiking/trekking as I needed it for... It's so hard to find fashion/stylish hiking bags while functional at the same time.

                Perfect amount of space!

                • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

                Great for carrying your daily essentials and keeping them safe from unpredictable weather in Utah. Awesome pack I use it on the daily from morning commutes to the shoreline hikes with the dog. The pack is pretty universal for almost anything that requires packing up and taking with you. The feature I enjoy the best is the rigid back it’s not super stiff but it does have some flexibility to it and the pattern it has molded allows great airflow. I’m constantly receiving completes on the outer finish of this pack as well, looks slick and durable are the main ones. The organizational pockets are perfect they thought of everything for everything so you’ll have easy access to it all. The laptop sleeve is nice fits the mac superb and is brilliant how it doubles as a hydration sleeve and allows a tube right out the top. If you have a budget for only one pack this is the pack.

                Unanswered Question

                Does the bottom of this backpack have padding on the inside that would keep a textbook from wearing through it?
