    Patagonia's biggest Black Hole.

    If Patagonia built a black hole bigger than the Black Hole 120L Duffel Bag, then it would probably consume the earth. This Black Hole Duffel Bag, however, has enough space for all your climbing, skiing, hiking, or traveling gear for week-long trips. Inspired by rugged-yet-light alpine packs, the Black Hole features a burly ripstop fabric protected by a TPU laminate and coated with DWR. 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 a four-wheeler.

    Not Waterproof/resistant

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It's a large bag that holds a lot of stuff, but that's pretty much where it stops. I purchased this bag based on waterproof/resistant claims, and since have been wholly disappointed. I've just found out yesterday in spectacular fashion, that the black hole bag lacks any sort of water resistance.

    Stuffed full of camping gear, clothing for a wedding, work laptop and documents, I tossed the bag in the back of my pickup. Rain was in the forecast but I wasn't worried in the slightest, as I'd purchased this bag in particular for peace of mind that my things would be kept safe and dry in the event of the unexpected. It began raining shortly into my drive, and I figured no big deal - this is why I bought the black hole bag.

    After about an hour of driving in the rain, I arrived at my destination and began to unpack. To my dismay, most of my things which were contained by the black hole bag were much wetter than expected. This includes my work pc, which I now have the pleasure of replacing.

    Perhaps I ended up with a lemon, but either way I'm not very happy. Thanks Patagonia.

    You're expectations for this piece of gear is misguided. This bag is not designed or engineered to withstand driving rain in the back of a truck. You need a Watershed Dry Bag for such an application. The Watershed Colorado is a comparable size.

    Endless space

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

    Great hold-everything duffel. Lightweight so you can pack it full. Great long handles for carrying and detachable straps for carrying on your back. Also have the North Face 95L bag, and feel that this one is better in the way that it naturally holds its shape (has more of a set base area/shape than the NF bags). perfect for big ski expeditions. Feels like its going to be super durable.

    More Than Enough Room

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This thing is huge! I have had it for almost a year now. I store all my caving/climbing/rappelling gear in it. I have thrown it around by the handles, loaded it down with 50lbs of gear and used the backpack straps to lug it several miles, its been rained on, mud all over it and hosed it off. This bag is great if you have outdoor gear to lug around or even carring it on vacation with clothes, I'd rather use it than my suitcase now.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great bad for all of your gear hauling needs. I have used my Patagonia black hole duffel(s) for gyms to camping gear. My only complaint is the back pack straps on the large sizes can be confusing - you have to feed the rectangular pieces on the actual backpack straps through the eyelets on the bag at and angle and when taunt they will hold. Not the most intuitive design and one I know Patagonia has to frequently explain to customers.

    Buy it in every size

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this bag. It's at home on camping trips, airline flights and everything in between. They are versatile, tough, stylish and functional. I have them in every size from a small one to carry my computer to work, all the way up to the massive size that I use to carry tons of fishing and camping gear.

    Rugged and Deep

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag holds a ton of gear. I love how it zips into itself for storage. The backpack straps are helpful and easy to remove. I suspect this bag will hold up to years of abuse.

    Perfect size for all my gear!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I wanted a bag that would fit all my gear for any kind of trip I might take. Whether it's backcountry touring and mountaineering or a day at the resort, this duffel bag has room for everything. If you don't want a duffel this spacious, Patagonia has made it available in sizes ranging from 45L-120L. They are all made with the same 900D Polyester Ripstop, TPU Film with the water-resistant DWR coating. The material has proven to be very durable as I have even been brave enough to stow my trekking poles inside. I look forward to using this duffel on many adventures to come. If you have any questions feel free to reach out.

    Perfect size for all my gear!

    Black Holes wished they were this big

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

    The Patagonia Black Hole duffel is just that. Patagonia has a winner here. The duffel swallows gear at an alarming rate. I am a sailor and trek sails - gear back and forth to my sailboat. This bag archives the task without a hitch. The center pocket will stash a weeks worth of gear. It is easy to organize and find gear in the voluminous cavern. Plenty of space to move things around when searching for that one item. The Black Hole duffel is built to last. Quality construction - bomber seams - quality straps. Highly recommend

    Black Holes wished they were this big

    You'll Want One In Every Size

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The quick take: A great example of a simple product (big, light, durable duffel) made well. True to its name, it can carry as much as you could conceivably bring on any length trip (up to multi-week / month w/ limited washing). You know when you find something that just works well? This is it for suitcases/duffels, no need to shop around further.

    I've used the duffel for a two week trip around New Zealand's South Island as my primary bag and on other, shorter trips where I needed the extra room. In NZ, it was large enough for two weeks clothes etc. + ski gear, but still had backpack straps to make the trips to and from the car / through airports relatively easy. You just use a day pack to carry what you need for any given time period and treat this bag like a walk-in closet. The backpack capability beats the hell out of wheels in any condition except perfectly paved concrete (try finding that at small winter airport or town!). I haven't needed the waterproofing to any extent, but the peace of mind is nice and the material seem like they would wear well in wetter conditions. The single inner zip pocket is really helpful too--great dirty clothes hamper.

    Since buying the bag in June, I've seen it and its smaller brethren numerous times in airports and shops, and most recently grabbed the wrong bag (same color/size, Forge Grey) off the baggage claim line. As of writing, it's on sale--easy decision for those on the fence. Get it!

    huge and light

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag is huge!! It's durable but packs down very small and light for how much gear and clothes you can fit in. It would make a great general purpose travel bag or even a spare bag to bring back plunder from your travel destination. The backpack straps make it easy to carry if it doesn't have too much weigh in it, and if it does the end straps are sturdy and make it easy to haul with a friend. The laminate seems to be a bit thinner and not as stiff as the North Face base camp duffels.

    Amazing HUGE bag

      Not joking when I say this bag is huge. I love these black hole duffels, they are the best and hold everything. They're well designed and durable. This size is literally massive though, like would be good to pack for a monthlong trip or to pack your really big gear like snowshoes, ski boots and helmet. Highly recommend though!

      One in Every Size

        We now have one in every size. The backpack and the waterproof, durability of this bag makes it our new favorite bags! You cannot meet these bags. This size is because I am an over packer and needed a bigger bag for week long trips. Also love this for fitting all of our climbing equipment in one bag for a day climb with the family!

        Review from a customer

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

        "Hey Eric, giving the Report on the black hole duffle. Left for hunting destination in the rain, 1 hour boat ride. When we got there the rain got steadier, but all the contents stayed dry. The zippered pockets were very convenient , especially the outside access to the inner pocket, a huge plus. Packed an enormous amount of gear and the zippers took all the abuse I could give them trying to close up. This bag exceeded all expectations, can't believe I got along without it all these years. Definitely a "10" rating. Thanks again. "


        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        I have used this bag on two excursions. A 7-day trip to Mt. Kilimanjaro and a 10-day trip to K2 Base Camp. It kept all my gear and snacks safe for the duration of the trips. In one word, solid!


        Top quality

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Great bag that I take almost any time I travel! It has enough space to work for most of the week or so long traveling I do and is super convenient to carry with the backpack straps!

        Backpack straps!

          I love the backpack straps on this huge duffel bag! They make it way easier to drag this big bag through the airport on your back. The waterproof material also looks and feels really nice. My main praise about this bag is how big it is, I love that you can always squeeze in one more thing for your trip!
