    Makes Your Life Easier.

    Being an organized human doesn't mean you have to color code every single item you own and diligently put it back in its original packaging. But being organized certainly does help when time is of the essence. The Patagonia Lightweight Black Hole Gear 28L Tote is designed to make your life, well, easier. This versatile tote easily accommodates stinky trail running sneakers, climbing necessities, and snacks of all shapes and sizes, while the small stash pocket on the front allows you to stuff the bag down and toss it in your pack when not in use. And, to bolster its gear-friendly design, this tote features an abrasion-resistant ripstop that's tough as nails, and the DWR treatment (as well as the TPU laminate) offer protection from light precipitation and moisture.

    • A durable and generously sized tote for storing gear
    • Abrasion-resistant ripstop is tough as nails
    • DWR treatment and TPU laminate defends from moisture
    • Toggle closure offers some semblance of security
    • Small stash pocket turns into a stuff sack
    • Item #PAT01PJ

    On The Go

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

    Gotta love bags for that allow me to easily toss everything in and go. This works great and packs up small and doesn’t keep all the dirt in it afterwards. Mostly use it for tossing all my bike gear in when I am in a hurry but the possibilities are endless.

    The work horse of bags

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This bags seems so simple and that is the beauty of it! I use this bag all the time - lightweight to pack for vacation (it folds back into it's own pocket pouch) but super durable to throw around. From the beach to grocery store to concerts this bag is ready to be helpful. Also love the simple toggle closure - I can stuff it full but still make sure things don't fall out.

    Straps bit too short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great overall bag - but if you plan to carry it on your shoulder, it slips off due to the fact that the straps are a wee bit short.

    Perfect Gear Hauler

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

    I own two Black Hole duffels, so I know them to be near indestructible. Whenever I go on trail runs I find myself carting a lot of gear from my apartment to the car: shoes, a fleece for after the run, snacks, a map or book with the trail, extra water (large metal kleen kanteen insulated bottles), my hydration vest, a blender bottle, hydration powder, towels, sometimes even a change of pants. Trying to fit all this in a regular grocery size tote was a hassle, and because most totes rarely have a flat bottom or any stiffness, they're falling over while you're trying to pack it.

    This thing is perfect for hauling all my junk, it fits everything with plenty of room to spare, the material won't puncture if I throw something sharp in it, and it's easily wiped down so I don't mind throwing my socks or used KT tape in there after my run. It also stays upright when you're packing it. If you drive to outdoors stuff with any frequency, you should have this bag.

    I fell in love with Patagonia's Black Hole line last summer--it's really hard to even look at other bags once you've seen how these things hold up!

    I'm a super active, outdoorsy, loves to play, busy mom, and I have a million totes lying around my house/garage/car, but this is the only one i am reaching for lately--why? It's TOUGH! I started out using this as my bike bag--I can throw in my shoes/helmet/gloves/glasses/clothes for after I ride, AND my camelbak and I still have room--it's surprisingly large, and the bottom isn't going to rip out. But what makes it better than your average tote is that it's SO easy to wash out. After a muddy ride I literally took the hose to it. I've also been using it to take to the lake--I can put sunscreen, snacks and towels in it. And when I accidentally leave it in the car all day (ok two days) full of wet towels (oops) and it smells....I can hose it out, wipe it off, and it's just like new.

    I do wish the price was just a bit lower, and I wish it had a larger internal pocket (although the pocket it has does fit keys/phone/chapstick/snack), I would still highly recommend adding this to your Black Hole family.

    Love this bag

    I use this tote to schlep gear to/from my barn. It is super lightweight and holds a lot. The zipper pocket is really a nice add as you can separate any kind of important docs, etc. The best thing about this bag is that you can spills, dirt, etc. and literally just wipe it off. No concerns about stains. I love it and might buy another one.

    It is a tote

    $50 for a tote? I went and looked them, while they are a nice tote I couldn't really justify spending that kind of money for a tote.

    Is it the Cadillac of totes? The all black one doesn't even say Patagonia on the side of it. It is this dark as night tote that no one will ever notice that you spent your money on a Patagonia tote. I could see someone wanting to steal a Patagonia tote over a $5 dollar tote they most likely wouldn't touch.

    If these go on sale? Yeah, I might tote one off.

    *Update* Well, some Idiot Patagonia fan boy or girl already flagged this review as being a complaint.

    It is a tote. Not too big, not too small. I said all there is to say about the thing. The black one doesn't have the Logo that so many wienie Patagonianists want to show off. I might have saved one or two of them from being disappointed and not getting to show off their beloved brand label.

    I bet they could put quite a few boxes of tampons in this thing. Do hippies even use tampons? No? Ok, you could put quite a few handfuls of moss or sod in this thing for your next Menzie cycle.

    The Reader's Digest Version? This bag is the bee's knees.

    Non Reader's Digest Version? The Patagonia Lightweight Black Hole Tote is one of those things that you didn't know you really, really needed until you've got in your hot little hands.

    That being said, I'm a huge fan of utilizing milk crates for hauling around gear: I throw my climbing, running, dog toys, ski, or hiking gear in them like it's going out of style. However, my love for them has been waning as of late as I was finding that not only are they cumbersome, but they're not all that spacious or flexible (in fact, quite contrary). And that's where the Lightweight Black Hole Tote comes into play.

    Not only is this tote more flexible and easy to throw into a back seat than a milk crate, but it's also larger! I can fit way more stuff in there than I originally thought I could. See picture: I was not expecting the tote to accommodate my ski jacket, vest, goggles, spare lens, boots, two pairs of gloves, ski helmet, neck gaiter, and snacks (though, not pictured: the 2 granola bars and bag of chips I ate that were originally in the bag, but then I ate because.. yeah, snacks - oops!).

    The bag itself is structured so you don't have to worry about the sidewalls folding in on themselves as you're trying to stuff the bag with gear. And, the exterior is super durable, which is awfully convenient when I need to smoosh it between skis, poles, and whatever other stuff I'm bringing along. Additionally I like the fact that the material is easy to wipe down. Perhaps what's most awesome to me is the fact that the tote stuffs down into the internal pocket, making it an ideal companion for road or plane-bound trips. Also, this pocket is awfully convenient when the bag is in use, keeping snackables or whiskey nips organized and secure.

    Bottom line: This bag is the multi-tool of totes. So, if you're on the fence about whether or not you need this bag because A. You have a small Black Hole Duffle already, B. Own enough totes (or milk crates if you're like me) to craft a giant canvas balloon bag or C. Are just on the fence... my answer is just grab one. It's one of those things that I didn't know I needed until I got it.
