Compression straps prevent your gear from bouncing around whether you're traveling via airplane or four-wheeler.

    A Gearhead Staple.

      My hubby's been chomping at the bit to get one of these bags, so I figured now was as good of a time as any to get him (read: us) one. Between the two of us, we own two extra large duffels: a North Face Base Camp Duffel and a Black Diamond Black Hole Duffel equivalent, so a smaller duffel seemed like an appropriate next step.

      And, truth be told, I'm not a huge fan of either the TNF base camp or BD duffel. Size differences aside, my number one complaint about the two duffels is that the backpack straps are a huge pain in my butt because they don't stay secure. They often wiggle free or just decide to elongate on their own, which makes for an interesting experience when you're crossing the tarmac in a throng of people.

      However, the Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Bag straps remain stationary and don't suddenly wiggle loose, which if you're hucking the bag around is a really convenient feature (one that should be intuitive IMHO). The material is extremely durable, yet more lightweight than the TNF Base Camp bag and the BD one for that matter. Additionally, I like the shape better: it's more ergonomic and feels less like I've got a giant piece of tubing attached to my back.

      Thus far, we've found that the small duffel is ideal for short adventures: overnight work trips (three day max), gym sessions (be it climbing or fitness), dog items (food, toys, etc - we have a manic-snacker so a durable zippered bag is a must when we're traveling with her), or daytrip emergency necessities (first aid kit, reflectors, blanket, extra jug of water, etc). My husband and I often trade-off who takes the BH duffel and who takes the Lighweight Black Hole Tote (which, I highly recommend as an complementary piece to any Black Hole Duffel purchase) as both pieces offer dependable tote-age and durable performance.

      Go Everywhere Duffle

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Bag is great! Purchased as a gym bag for my husband. Works great for that but I see potential for an overnight bag, carry on for the plane, and more. Love the dark grey with the subtle turquoise trim. Love love the waterproof material. Will last for years!

      Patagonia Black Hole 45L Duffel Bag

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

      I bought this duffel for my 12yo nephew and he loves it. It's the perfect size to carry his sports gear to and from practice. It's also a great size for a weekend sleepover with his friends.

      The name says it all!

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

      I bought this as a gift for a gym crazy friend and she says it's been perfect! It really is like a black hole, even for just 45 L there's so much she can fit into the bag, gym clothes, toiletries, climbing shoes, yoga gear, and a water bottle. With its perfect plane carry on size it will soon travel the world. Now I'm really itching to get myself one!

      Back for more...these are great

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I'm amassing a collection of black hole duffels (have 60, 90 and 120). We're using them for airline travel (domestic and international), regular recreation (car camping, gear hauling to trailhead etc) and then even gear organization when at home... One thing to note--the models larger than 45L all have an integrated backpack associated with the handles. The 45L model does not. For my petite wife, using the shoulder strap cross-body for any length of time was very uncomfortable. So much so that she'll probably opt for using the 65L (especially as airline carryon). Material, construction, function is typical Patagonia--that is to say well done. Price is also typical Patagonia--that is a little spendy if you can't find it on sale (last seasons color or something). Like most quality items, you don't think about the cost when you're using it.

      Small but mighty

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Needed a new gym bag. One that would hold everything I needed and could take a beating. I FOUND IT. Don't let the small size fool you. It comfortably holds shoes, towel, toiletries, clothes and a water bottle and STILL has room to spare. The exterior is tough and wipes down easily. Zipper is easy and smooth. Would make a great carry on bag (could EASILY fit under the seat in front of you) or a great weekender.

      Patagonia taking on The North Face

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

      Weather resistant, stylish, and light.
      Nice big D-shaped zipper that was easy is easy to pack.
      Durable, but not as durable as The North Face Base Camp.

      Great construction and looks sharp

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Just got the "Shock Pink" 45L bag and it's actually red, and looks really sharp. Construction is on-point and it looks like you'd have to try very, very hard to wear this bag out. It strikes a nice balance between minimalism, which is the hallmark of a duffel bag, and having enough pockets to be practical.

      It is kind of cool that it folds into its own interior pocket but I really don't see myself using that a lot, if ever. I also kind of wish they would tone down the logo treatment on the bag b/c you end up being a walking billboard, but whatever.

      Capacity-wise, you could use the 45L as a gym bag, overnight/weekend bag, or as much as a 2-3 day trip bag (as long as you are an efficient packer). I don't have the 60L (yet!) but that seems better suited for 5-7+ day trips and I was looking for more of a weekend bag, for which this is perfect.

      Damn near indestructible

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

      Just got one of these, and wow what a well constructed bag. The fabric is super tough, and the zippers seem stronger than even the ones on suitcases that I've used on countless flights that have been beaten silly by baggage handlers, so I have no doubts about their durability.

      The internal straps that let you compress whatever you put in are great - they let me pack in way more stuff than I'd normally be able to cram into a bag this size.

      I've used it a couple of times, and am looking forward to years of use.

      Finally shoulder strap!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is Nick's wife Lynsey:

      Nick got this for me for Christmas. We have several other sizes of the black hole duffel and love them. We have taken them everywhere- camping, international trips, on boats, etc.. We also have an older model of the 45L but the big failure was that it didn't have a shoulder strap. Thank goodness Patagonia finally added the detachable strap! Perfect weekend bag lots of pockets.

      Patagonia Quality

        I was torn between TNF's Base Camp Duffel Bag or this but settled on this based on brand. It's a perfectly sized overhead bin carry-on for air travel. I particularly like how the entire bag can be folded in its side pocket. There's a few small pockets though it'd be great to have one larger enough for shoes. Otherwise the usual quality from Patagonia, definitely happy with my choice.

        Where are the removable backpack straps?

        Hey Lauren



        I'm so sorry sadly this bad does not come with removable backpack straps. I have notified our content people to make this change so that further customers are not confused. I apologize that we missed it earlier and thank you for bringing it to our attention.



        Cheers!
