Beth Deanwrote a review of Patagonia Lightweight Black Hole Gear 28L Tote - Women's on July 9, 2017
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.
