    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.

    Awesome, durable, and spacious

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this bag. I have the Black Hole 60L Duffel in White, which I purchased while it was on sale for $80. Normally I wouldn't buy something like this in white, but it was the only color available for the price and I absolutely LOVE it. It looks so good despite the obvious scuffing that happens with normal wear. It has held up super well and it's literally a black hole--everything fits! I've gone on weeklong trips and filled this up with all my gear no problem. It also fits as a carry on when not super loaded up, which is really convenient.

    You won't hate this.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have had this bag for a few years now and can't say enough about it. After struggling to figure out how to get the backpack straps on I haven't had any issues with it. You'll be asking your self why you didn't buy one sooner. Drag this bag across the airport, use it as a chair during those longer layovers, and use it as a pillow on those long delays. Bombproof zipper won't ever get stuck or break, which is the last thing you want to worry about with a travel bag. This bag also compresses down pretty small for storage, so much better than dealing with the a wheelie suitcase!

    Here I am, again

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Here I go again, getting another blackhole! These puppies are bomb proof and the original black hole i first purchased is still going strong after 3 years. I have beat the leaving crap out of these bag as well. Taken them on river trips, weekend camping trips, through multiple airports and of course on any fishing trip as well.

    Do yourself a favor, get a 60L duffel and throw your god forsaken roller bag in the street.

    My Best Friend

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This duffel and I have been through some hard times and good times. This thing saved me in Alaska. Fits just the right amount for a weeks worth of clothes and is an ideal carry on. Its had a rough go and still looks brand new (mostly). If you are wanting something for longer trips I would go with a bigger bag but this gem is great for 7 days give or take. Plus so many fun colors!

    Better than anything you can wear

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I worked for Patagonia for a number of years, and people were surprised when I told them that I thought this bag was the best thing Patagonia made. My opinion might momentarily change when my Patagonia jacket is keeping me warm or dry, but for the most part I stand by that statement. This is the best thing that Patagonia makes. It's super durable and you'll use it all the time. The size is convenient enough for weekend trips, and works as a carry-on for longer trips (It's not technically a carry-on size, but I've had people with smaller wheeled bags asked to check their bags on a crowded flight, while my bag with a week's worth of clothes and a large board game was fine). There's tons of space, (I forgot to mention I lived out of this bag for a few weeks one time) so you will almost definitely never be wanting for space. The price might turn some people away, but based on how often you'll use it and how long it'll last, it's one of the most worthy investments you can make with Patagonia.

    10/10 Would Recommend

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This bag has me covered whether I'm going full send or just taking a quick flight. The size is perfect for a week's worth of gear in the Summer and for a few days in the Winter. The handles on either end of the bag are great for quickly and easily grabbing the bag and the backpack straps make it super comfortable to carry the bag for an extended period of time. I also have a 60 L that I use to stash camping gear in and it's held up perfectly despite taking quite a beating in the back of the truck, at the campsite, and while it sits in the garage.

    The Best Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've tested this bag through the wringer, and had to buy another. 45 L is too small in my opinion, but the 60 L is perfect for travel and camping. Theres enough room to pack for about a week's worth of travel and that is extremely crucial for traveling light so it's perfect!

    Great bag, 6oL was just a bit small

      Great bag. Husband loved this gift but returned for the 90L size. He felt like the 60L would be great for long wknd trips, or going to the gym but he wants to be able to take it on hunting trips where his clothes are bulkier and trips are longer.

      Patagonia Duffle

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

      They are versatile, have lots of storage pockets. They are comfortable as a backpack for hands free travel and easy to carry as a duffle. They are easy to clean, stylish colors and durable.

      Not My Favorite Size But Awesome Anyway

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      We have been using these bags for years. I have purchased and thoroughly tested nearly a dozen of various sizes. While not my favorite size of the bunch, the 60L pack represents an excellent size bag and we have found the water repellency to be quite good. No its not fully water proof but i have gotten caught in the rain on the kayak and this bag kept my gear dry. We love these bags and are fairly certain you will not be disappointed.

      Not My Favorite Size But Awesome Anyway

      Do it all!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is a great mid sized duffle that can fit just the right amount of stuff. Weekend trips- Check, Workout gear- Check, Traveling on a plane- Check. It even folds into a small pocket for storage when your'e not using it!

      Quality Duffel

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is my favorite duffel bag I have ever owned. I have had the 60L Black Hold Duffel for the last 5 years and it is still rocking with heavy use. This thing is indestructible and keeps your gear safe inside from the elements.

      WORTH IT

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Duffel, meets backpack, meets INDESTRUCTIBLE VESSEL. I wanted luggage that would withstand elements ranging from backcountry camping to airline abuse and this is it. Reasonable price for the durability and functionality. The backpack straps are a lifesaver when the pack is stuffed, yet the 60L isn't too big to pass as a carry on with some airlines. My only request would be more pockets but that's because I'm an organizational freak. But I definitely see more blackhole purchases in my future.

      Roomy bag

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Used this 60 L bag for 4 week car camping trip. Able to stuff all my clothing, shoes etc. and could always squeeze another item in.
      Material is heavy duty, carry handles sturdy. I have used this bag multiple times since May 2017. Highly recommend!


      Best Duffle Ever!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Ive owned this duffle for almost 2 years and used it for weekend trips and longer 2 week journeys as checked baggage halfway around the world- still looks like new. Backpack straps are comfortable and great for terrain that makes wheeled luggage impractical. - even the duffle handles are long enough to use hoist over your shoulder in a pinch. I've stuffed it to capacity, cinched it down and have yet to bust a seam. Will never buy any other duffel!

      Unanswered Question

      Has anyone taken this on Ryanair? I know the demensions are slightly bigger then the carry on limit, but if you pack light can you make it fit?

      This DRW coating is not explained. Please elaborate.
      Is this duffel waterproof? Can it be made waterproof? If so what to use for waterproofing?

      Hi , has anyone taken this bag as carry on luggage in a plane? Do you know if it's too big? Many thanks!

      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"!

      Unanswered Question

      Can a single shoulder strap be purchased separately? Or can the backpack strap be utilized as a shoulder strap?

      Does this bag have the traditional single over the shoulder strap or just the backpack style straps?

      Best Answer

      i had the same question and eventually figured out that the bottom end of the backpack strap (opposite the clipped end) slides diagonally through the plastic part attached to the bag. Hope that makes sense

      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)
