    Patagonia's most popular bags had a baby.

    The Black Hole MLC Bag combines Patagonia's most popular traveling luggage—the MLC, which stands for Maximum Legal Carry-On—with the same fabric that makes the Black Hole luggage so popular among the alpinists and outdoor adventurers. This laminated fabric boasts long-lasting protection against weather and abrasion alike. You can carry this MLC Bag with the removable shoulder strap, the tuck-away shoulder straps, or the sewn-on handles for versatile convenience. The large compartment splits in two so you can keep your clean and dirty clothes separate.

    MLC 45L Bag

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

    Great all around travel bag. Has many options to carry it. Great access and dividers. Heavy duty construction. Wish they had more color options.

    The only bag you need...

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

    I purchased this for my husband to replace an “irreplaceable” almost 20 year old MLC. I was unsure about the Black Hole version, but thankfully he was not. He is so pleased with the updates. This bag has a place for everything, and holds more than you would think! Multiple zippered compartments organize all of the small stuff. The Black Hole exterior looks and feels like it will easliy survive another 20 years of road trips. It’s pure Patagonia quality throughout.

    Great Addition to the Black Hole Series

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a great bag for travel. It fits more than you would expect it to. It's well made and rides comfortably as a back pack. I was able to get through 3 weeks in Europe with just this bag.

    Unanswered Question

    What is the interior color of the black Black Hole MLC? I like the understated exterior, but I like a contrasting color inside to make finding things easier (the one issue I have with my TNF Base Camp Duffel). Thanks.
