Great ski resort bag

Pack this thing right and youre good for a long trip. Something I do a lot with this bag is bring it on trips where I know I may return with more gear than I left with. I pack it empty in a checked bag and it will work as a second suitcase on the way back. Its compact when folded into itself so it doesnt steal too much room in your suitcase. Ive ac... Read Moretually had to pack some wet snow gear for a quick flight back and having this with me saved my other stuff from getting wet.

Bomb proof travel bag

This is a light weight travel bag that can be carried on an airplane. Also great gym bag with lots of room. The zipper is smooth.

October 30, 2021

Appropriately named

This bag is indeed a black hole. I can fit my whole familys laundry for over a week in it. Easy to pack away and feel great on my back even when fully loaded.

Top Notch Bag, Years of Abuse but No Wear

As describe the material is tough as nails. Ive used this bag for years now, through deployments and 20+ flights, despite that it still looks band new. Love the option for turning into a back pack and have used for those longer carries. One of my best pieces of luggage.

Duffel Bag

Purchased for husbands birthday, loves it! Great to travel, his favorite color. Was a hit

Wonderful Bag

Great size, look, and easy to quickly stuff and take with you.

The best duffels

The best duffels on the market. Great with the pocket to pack the bag in. Keeps rain out and durable.

A tough bag

This is the fifth Black Hole bag that I have purchased. Why does he buy so many? you may say. I have 5 kids and this is part of their kit when I send them off to school. These bags last forever and they take all the abuse a teenage (or slightly older) boy can dish out - muddy shoes, greasy wrenches, odd pieces of wood with nails sticking out, soaki... Read Moreng wet jeans, dorm rooms, dark woods, blazing rocky beaches, and pristine green soccer pitches - it goes anywhere and hauls almost anything (I still can't figure out how to get a '71 2002 transmission in one of these, but someday I may find a way). The bottom line: these Black Hole bags are rugged, roomy and useful. And when you don't need them to haul your gear, you can fold it up into its own pouch and it will fit easily into your backpack and still leave room for your laptop and a change of clothes. I may just end up buying 5 more - it depends on how many grandkids I need to send off in this world. Cheers

Made to last!

I treated myself to the Black Hole bag to make my travels easier for the coming ski season. It is great and built to last.

August 28, 2021

Burly Luggage

We own these bags in just about every size. Theyve withstood rough handling on countless flights, being tossed around on road trips, and even being lashed to the roof of a truck. Cant go wrong with the Black Hole line.

August 23, 2021

Gone Fishing

Bought my third bag. Great for packing all the clothes we need for our fishing trip.

August 21, 2021

Pack it All!

I bought this bag a few years back now, actually mine is a 60L which is no longer in the site.... I bought it for a trip to Thailand. It seems to not run out of room, many pockets to keep toiletries, meds, wets, shoes, etc separate. Then outside all loops to hang laced shows and hiking equipment. Water proof, well made, and all around the best bag ... Read Morethat I've ever had. Can be a comfortable backpack or a handled dufflebag. I've now traveled to Thailand, Cambodia, Peru, Bolivia, plus endless "USA" internal trips. Now I'm heading to Uganda and Rwanda, Africa and I'm buying one for my son who is traveling with me!.. BEST bag you'll ever own.

August 15, 2021

Excellent Bag.

The bag is great.

August 11, 2021

Poor construction

Bought this duffle bag with the hope to start traveling again after COVID. On its first outing the handle/side was ripped by airline. Clearly not the quality I expect from Patagonia given the price.

Hey Judith, thanks for the review on the Black Hole Duffel Bag 70L. We agree that our gear should last a lot longer than your unfortunate experience. Please [reach out to us]( so we can set you up with a warranty return credit to purchase a new one.

Never Ending Space!!

We purchased the Patagonia Black Hole duffle bag in the 70L and when they say black hole its the truth!! This bag holds so much stuff! I took this bag and only this bag on a 10 day trip to the Dominican Republic and it fit all of my stuff plus things I purchased over there. Being able to use it as a backpack is super convenient however the only com... Read Moreplaint I have is that it can be a little uncomfortable on your back depending how you pack. Overall this is going to be put to great use with the amount of traveling I do!

July 26, 2021

Not as spacey as I imagined

Good robust bag as expected. Loaded it up for international flight with a couple of pairs of boots and full weight was approx 40 lbs, well short of allowance.

July 20, 2021

Great customer service, but not sure on the bag

I left this bag in my car when hiking in Utah (very hot day) and it melted in the sun. I had left the flap open so it was plastic on plastic, but seems like something that it should hold up in. No fuss on the exchange at the store, but still a bit worried on durability. Let's see how round two goes.

Response from Patagonia
July 20, 2021

Thank you for the feedback on the bag, PJ! The Black Hole bags are very durable in terms of the fabric's resistance to wear and tear, as well as in hot travel conditions. We would not recommend leaving the bag open and unattended in very high temperatures in a car, rather throw a tarp or blanket over it, or place it in a shady spot if possible. We're glad to hear that the store was able to get you sorted out quickly and painlessly, and we look forward to your review after years of use!

Great equipment - best bag I ever had

Excellent quality, fast delivery and meets expectations. Highly recommended. It fits everything .

July 12, 2021

Great Bag. Super Tough

Love this bag. It looks great and is bomb-proof. I have gone through so many cheap bags that fall apart when you use them hard, this bag is tough and functional.

July 7, 2021


No other bag is more durable, good-looking, functional, and easy to carry for its size. I have the 70 L and the smaller 55L sizes, I can't settle for any other travel/sport/adventure/moving duffel anymore!

A Bag of many uses

One of my sons was on his way to his first year of college and was loading up my car with his laundry bag stuffed with clean clothes, towels and linens. I asked him why he was doing that instead of using say one of the suitcases that we had and he shrugged his shoulders and said "this is easier". It dawned on me that he needed a rugged, v... Read Moreersatile travel bag, so I stopped at a local retailer and grabbed a 70L Black Hole bag. It was configured into its small, travel bag size and my son looked at me as if to say "Dad, you're an idiot; my stuff won't fit into that". I opened the bag into it's carrier configuration and he was stunned into silence as he watched me load a semster's worth of "stuff" in the bag. I tossed it in the back of my sedan along with his record player (he likes vinyl) and a couple of pillows and off we went. I was so impressed, that I bought Black Hole Bags for all 3 of his brothers.

Bomb Proof Bottomless Pit

This thing is amazing. Packed my stuff, my wife and daughters stuff for a recent trip to CO. Survived being checked on airplane. I have a smaller capacity black hole bag from 5yrs ago and it is still like new, even with tons of travel. These bags are amazing and essential for traveling/adventuring.

July 2, 2021

Go anywhere, take anything!

My go-to bag for all post-pandemic adventures.

Awesome product. I bought this to use for vacation and its so roomy! Very convenient!

Radical Bag for Every Kind of Pursuit

From storage to travel to moving, this bag is the bees knees. If you need all kinds of space for all kinds of stuff- this is your bag.

Duffel bag

Great duffel bag! I love to travel and use this bag often. Unfortunately one of the back straps got lost during my trip when I checked the bag in.

Roomy spacious bag that packs down to almost nothing. Very versatile. Shipped immediately too.

June 14, 2021

FINALLY! I can pack for a week+

More than usual, I can just keep shoving clothes in and there is still room for more. You can stuff a basketball into each end of the Black Hole bag. I didn't get the largest size available. I got 1 size down, 70 L. I didn't think I could manage the 100 L. With the extra straps, I think I would have been fine, but why push my luck. I love...

I have a smaller version of this bag but we bought this for boat days and carrying that gear. Absolutely great bag!

This is my third duffle and the one right in the middle. Easy to handle, nice and big main compartment next to smaller pockets for quick access. I use the bag mostly for traveling as well as carrying my kids around

These bags work great for organizing gear for different activities. I will always know where seasonal gear is placed so it dosent get lost in my gear room. Different color bags help identify.

Great Bag!

Great quality. Love the color. Only weird thing would be that it comes zipped up into its own interior pocket - and it was actually a little hard to get it unfolded and OUT of the pocket. (Nevermind folding it back up to get it back in there again.) I know if you are reading this, you might be skeptical, but I am one of those people who prides them... Read Moreselves on getting things to compress & fold back up. It was definitely disappointing that I couldn't get it to go back into it's internal pocket. But maybe most people don't really care! Still a really great bag.

Well designed duffle with easy access and durability

The duffle is super easy to use and looks wonderful. The zippers are smooth and get better with use. The shell is clean and repels water and the base of the bag is super resilient and doesn't track too much dirt. The detachable backpack straps are surprisingly comfortable and work well along with the two carrying straps on the sides.

March 26, 2021

Perfect Camping Duffle

I've become such a fan of Patagonia duffles this past year. I have this one and the 40ML size and both are well-made and really live up to the name! You can fit anything and everything in this one - perfect for a week-long camping trip.

March 25, 2021

Good bag

the bag has done very well on a snow trip and a rainy trip. It kept my clothes dry.

Very good

The handles for handle bag sometime get caught by the arms when wearing the Duffel as a backpack.

Perfect for all your travel

Perfect Duffle

Finally I found the perfect bag for my wife for our trips now that we have a 6 month old. I do give her credit as she bought me the same one for my birthday (an upgrade from my smaller and older version). It keeps everything together, dry, and organized!

Great for gear dumping

I purchase the 70L duffle so that when preparing for weekend adventures I could stuff anything and everything into it. Feels much larger than 70L!

Huge bag, super strong.

This thing fits everything. I love using it for 4 day weekend getaways with my girlfriend, we can fit every article of clothing, toiletries and towels in one bag. We each have a set of packing cubes, so it's always easy to find exactly what we're looking for! This thing feels like it's going to last for years!

Ideal travel bag

These bags are super bomber....I first had the 40L and I have been using it every day for a gym bag as well as for weekend trips and it still looks absolutely brand new.

Great duffel with 1 limitation

Received my 70L duffle recently and it is now getting the treatment with some rough overseas travel in Africa.

The zipper is not designed to accept an approved lock in the closed position... Read More. More concerning is an internal pocket that can easily be accessed from the outside. This is not lockable, and an internal zipper of the same pocket gives prying hands full access to the main compartment. Other than this concern, I am quite happy with this product.

Love that this holds so much and that it has the option to use as a backpack. It’s a little too big as a backpack when full. I wish the straps had more padding and there was a hip belt to shift the weight. But otherwise it’s a solid duffel - love that it collapses to a small pouch.

Great duffel, but lacks security

I'm very satisfied with my new duffel, except for one design flaw. You cannot secure the contents of the bag with TSA approved locks. The problem isn't with the large access flap on the top (which can be locked), it is with the small pocket on the side. There's an external zipper and an internal zipper, and neither one can be locked ... Read Morein any way. So if you lock the top access flap, a potential thief still has access to everything in the duffel by simply unzipping the side pocket, reaching in, and unzipping the inside zipper. Yes, I know that all duffels are vulnerable to knife attack and can't ever be fully secure, but there is no good reason why simple measures (like rings sewn into the bag to which the side zipper and/or internal zipper can be locked) can't be taken to deter some thieves. Please note that the many of the questions in the review don't apply to duffels, so I left them blank.
