    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.

    Buy this Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been living out of this bag and my camping backpack and I could not speak more highly of this product. It took me a while to pull the trigger on purchasing it just because it is an investment for what seems like simply a duffle bag, but this thing is so much more than your traditional duffel! It is insanely durable and is nicely water resistant. It still looks practically brand new! Love the backpack attachments/straps! BUY THIS BAG.

    Pure Magic

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Originally, I picked up the 45L Black Hole and decided it was way too small for my intended purpose, and after getting this one as a replacement I've decided that it's my perfect go-to weekender bag! In the two short months that I've owned this bag (I have the light grey / purple color combo, which also happens to be unique and cute) I've brought it on work trips, car camping adventures, and on airplanes as my carry-on bag for weekend trips. It's amazing. It fits perfectly in the overhead bin and the side handle makes it easy to pull down (especially as a short person) when you're rushing off the plane. It's awesome for car camping and fits into our jenga trunk packing situation far better than an unwieldy backpack. The backpack straps are a bit thin, but still convenient. I have also used one in a criss cross capacity as a makeshift shoulder strap that makes for easy carrying across the airport. They are a bit tricky to put on as mentioned in other reviews - you need to rotate and slide the plastic end piece into the D ring, then rotate again so it locks into place. All in all, this is an incredible, well constructed, versatile travel bag. My husband certainly doesn't need another bag but he's so jealous every time I whip this out that I will probably buy him one for his birthday so he stops whining about it.

    Great weekend duffel.

      This is a nice sized duffel for short trips, with minimal to moderate gear/clothing. A bit small for bigger, gear demanding adventures.

      Durability is great. Shoulder straps are easy to use and comfortable. Minimal, but effective pocket.

      Black Hole Believer

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I now have the 60L and the 90L Black Hole duffel and love both. Photo attached here is from a BC work trip and as you can see from the Black Hole stack, the duffel is a employee favorite!

      I like that the 60L is a bit more compact than the 90L - much more of a weekend get away bag. It still can fit plenty of gear (frequently stuff my bike gear, clothing for weekend trips, computer bag, even groceries in) and it fits everything well.

      Being that its water resistant, it holds up well in the snow and more wet conditions, though I haven't thoroughly used it outside of traveling and car camping in the dirt, though I plan on using it for ski season quite a bit this next year.

      The straps make it easy for carry on and a stuffed 60L feels better on the back than even a 90L that isn't full.

      All in all, if you're looking for a hefty duffel that you can count on for reliability, this is a great option with rad colors!

      Great bag for travel

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have had my bag for over a year now and I absolutely love it. I purchased the 60L and have used it as my carry on on countless flights. The capacity is perfect for week long trips. The shoulder straps are super comfortable. If I don't have it crammed full of stuff it actually will fit under the seat in front of me on flights. I've also used it during the summer as a beach bag or when I go glamping with family. Best bag I've purchased and the price is very reasonable.

      Amazing Versatility

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've had this bag for almost a year now, and I use it constantly. I have tossed it and dropped it and had it on my back for countless adventures. I no longer need to check bags when going on trips, because I can use this bag as a carry-on, while also being able to pack everything I need for a weeklong trip. This bag has exceeded my expectations and is by far the best pack I have owned.

      An Endless Abyss of Versatility.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Reader's Digest Version: This bag is pretty stinkin' awesome. It's not a dry bag, so it won't safeguard your stuff from downpours or accidental swims in the river. However, it does feature an extremely durable and water-resistant exterior. And it's supposedly carry-on compatible, but I have yet to test that rumor (though I wouldn't doubt its legitimacy).

      Non-Reader's Digest Version: To be honest, I've had the same carry on duffel bag since I was 7 or so. It was a pretty simple bag circa LL. Bean, and finally, after all this time, it finally had the radish this past year......Which is where the Black Hole 60L comes into play. I've now dubbed this bag Ye Olde Faithful's Replacement, and I speculate (based on Patagonia's bomber construction) that this bag will too be a Ye Olde Faithful.

      The Black Hole material doesn't even bat an eye when it comes time to huck and haul, not to mention it happily withstands the often hasty-stuffing-into-the-back-of-my-car-among-precarious-objects sort of scenario. The water-resistant treatment has been especially helpful. That being said, the bag certainly isn't waterproof - so don't expect it to protect your stuff if you leave it out in the rain for extended periods of time or let it take a dip in the river.

      The backpack straps are a really, really nice touch, and make transport a breeze. However (ha) they were a shade confusing to assemble at first. Despite this initial snafu, the straps actually stay put, which is a really nice feature and one that should be relatively self-evident, but you'd be surprised how frequent that kind of stuff occurs.

      The two, internal zippered pockets are great, but if you need more storage options, I highly recommend checking out the Black Hole Cubes!

      All in all, I highly recommend this bag to anyone who is looking for a hardy, versatile, and carry-on compatible duffel bag.

      Great Multi function Bag

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

      I gifted this to my father, and he loved it. I asked him about the details, this is what he said "I got the 60L Black Hole duffel just before leaving to Italy. As I have read, it is durable and will pass as a carry-on, taking one element of suspense out of international travel. I packed it efficiently and used all clothing by the end of the 10-day trip. There were several occasions we had to walk, up to about 2 kilometers, and for its intended use, it was fine. For a crossover bag, it worked fine, and looks like it will last for many trips."

      Prime Size!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I love this bag. I have it in the 90L and the 60L. They are both perfect for different uses. The 60L my go to for any kind of weekend trip, or flight because I can carry it on. The amount of gear or outfits that you can fit in this and then throw on your back as a backpack makes me feel like Mary Poppins. The backpack straps are incredible. They can be a tiny bit tricky to get on if it is your first duffel, I am happy to walk you through it. Let me know if you have any other questions.

      Prime Size!

      Lightweight, durable, weather resistant

      The Black Hole has a nice big D-shaped zipper that was easy to pack.

      Lightweight, durable, weather resistant

      I was actually looking to maybe use this for my climbing gear as opposed to the crag daddy which is not as large of a capacity. Luckily i ran across your pic! Do you find you have enough room? Im not too concerned with long term wearability as im not normally hiking too far to routes. Any feedback would be helpful! Thank you!

      Not super waterproof (or easy to stuff)

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've taken this bag on a dozen+ trips, ranging from overnights to weeklong excursions, on planes and cars and canoes. Overall, I do like it, but I'm not exactly thrilled. Here's why.

      PROS:
      - The pack's construction is tough as nails. I don't worry about it, period, in terms of durability. Just like my 32L Black Hole backpack (which I love), I can toss it, haul it, grab it by any strap, no worries.
      - It's versatile, with backpack and handheld carrying options, and fairly lightweight for its size (especially given its durability + water resistance)
      - It's a good looking bag, and stands out in a crowd

      CONS
      - Water resistance is not what I'd hoped for. I took the pack on a 4 day canoe trip into the coastal swamps of NC, and we got dumped on, big-time, during our first few hours of paddling. Serious impromptu gear test, for sure, and this bag was one of the "water resistant" packs that failed it. It was not sitting in the bottom of the boat (I didn't expect it to perform as a drybag, immersed in H20), but water still got in through the seams, the zippers, and the pack's bottom fabric as the torrential downpour tested every angle. Long story short, my clothes got soggy, though not soaked (it did resist the water, just didn't stop it). And that side compartment got soaking wet.
      - Filling it up is harder than you'd expect. While that 60L capacity is ideal for overhead bins (and is about the max I want to haul around w/ me on most trips), I find that due to the zipper's design, and the pack's stiff corners, I have a hard time actually making full use of that space. The shoulder straps are also pretty thin, so don't expect to carry much weight without paying for it with chafe-age/soreness. It's a duffel first, and a backpack second.
      - That side zipper pocket is also pretty "meh", since it both A) shares space directly with the main pack, so using it just (inefficiently) takes up room in the pack, and B) provides a point of insecurity for international/sketchy travel, because you can get into the main pack via the side pocket; there's a pass-through zipper.

      Big picture? It looks bombproof, but I wouldn't leave it on, say, the roof of a chicken bus or in the back of a pickup truck in a torrential downpour, and trust it to keep my most precious items dry. And if you want to use every one of those 60 liters, you'll have to work for it - both in the packing, and in the carrying. It's still my go-to travel duffel, I just know its limitations now...

      Backpack strap instructions

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

      I received the duffel yesterday but had no clue on how to attach the backpack straps. I finally figured it out after chatting online w/ back country customer service, researching videos online and just plain finagling with it. You have to place the square plastic piece from backpack strap into the d ring on the bag. It has to be twisted about 90 degrees to be placed inside the d ring. The other end of the strap is a buckle so that's self explanatory, then viola! Planning on using this duffel backpack on my surf trip to Bali next month so I'll update my review after.

      Travel Essential.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This duffle is my go-to for everything. I've hauled it around the world--from the cold of the Tetons to the jungles of Thailand. It's strong, durable, and protects your stuff wherever you go. It's a perfect size for a carry-on bag, and offers plenty of room for gear, clothes, and other essentials (it carried everything I needed for 2 1/2 weeks in Thailand). There aren't a ton of storage and organization compartments, but if you're looking for something simple and reliable, this is your bag. Verdict: buy!

      Big and Durable

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This bag is great I have using it car camping trips and it can fit everything i need for a weekend including sleeping bag and pad, clothes, and the inside mesh pockets are nice for the essentials. Not a lot of bells and whistles here but a solid duffel that is made out of super durable material. Ill be using this bag for years to come.

      Excellent duffel.

        Great sturdy bag. This is the perfect size if I had to pick one duffel of the black holes. Have been using as my carry on along with a backpack and can bring everything I need for at least a week with no laundering needed. No checked bags is nice.

        5 stars

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This bag truly deserves 5 stars. It's constructed well and is super durable. It is lighter weight than most other duffel bags in this category. The shell material will keep your gear dry even when left out in a downpour. Another plus is Patagonia donates 1% for the planet. I enjoy supporting companies that give back.
        http://www.patagonia.com/one-percent-for-the-planet.html

        Would this duffle fit two pairs of ski boots plus have room for smaller gear?

        How does the backpack straps attatch to bag?

        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!

        How do you fold it back into its pocket for storage?

        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"!

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

        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)
