Protect the ocean so it can protect us
Our future is tied to the ocean. Its shared seas connect us through food, culture and sport. The home of amazing, abundant life, it’s also a powerful climate solution. Yet the practice of bottom trawling threatens to destroy this precious resource—bulldozing our ocean floor, undermining small-scale fisheries and deepening the climate crisis. Let's end this destructive practice, starting with an immediate ban in marine protected areas and inshore zones.

We have three of these bags in our family. They are durable, good looking and hold a lot more than you would think. We have used them on multiple extended vacations and they work great. My only criticism would be the amazingly large logo on a lot of the newer Patagonia bags. Its too much.
Amazing for travel!
I picked up this bag for extra capacity on an international trip. This is so sturdy and well made! It worked great - and the convertibility to a backpack was so wonderful.

Solid and worth the money!
I purchased this bag for a 6 week trip to Kenya in 2022. It took a total of seven legs on commercial airlines and was loaded (jammed) and unloaded (thrown in the ground) from our Toyota Land Cruiser every day for almost 4 weeks. Then it became a gear bag for a 7-day summit of Mount Kenya via a more sophisticated route. Again, this bag was not handl... Read Moreed gently but used hard. Through all this, the bag performed without flaw. The zippers never failed and the seams never blew out. Ironically, the only sign of wear is the Patagonia label is peeling off.

55L is the Most Versatile Size
The 55L Black Hole Duffel is the ideal size for most needs. It's not too small to accommodate a full weekend's worth of gear or if on a day adventure can fit shoes, a bike helmet and extra clothes for a day trip.

Holds a Ton
Went on a week trip to Colorado, road-tripping. Needed bags for the kids clothes that would last for years of travel. Really liked the straps to convert to backpack if needed. The zippers are strong and sturdy. Extra pockets a plus for smaller items. I am also looking forward to snowboarding trips with this bag as well!
Best Bag for Travel
The 55L Black Hole Duffle is super well designed. This bag is the perfect size to just be under 50 pounds so you can fly with it at minimal cost. The weight of the wheels for the Patagonia bags with wheels sometimes take those bags over the 50-pound mark and result in an airline fee.

The bag is Beautiful! I just want to warn you that I bought the 55L and is not possible to use the bag as a carry on on flights. I am very curious if someone did. Also, I checked in the bag and now the bag has some black spots on. I am trying to clean it and nothing seems to remove. Brand new. I thought the material looked very simple to clean, so,... Read More if Patagonia or anyone has an advice on how to clean the bag, it would be great, because it is disappointing that is Brand new and I cannot remove the dirty.
Hey Stephanie, thanks for the review. We do include dimensions on the product page so you can double check if one of our duffels would work as a carry on. Since the required dimensions vary from airline to airline, it's tough to make that call but the dimensions are there to reference. You can find them underneath the materials tab section, in a black outlined box. We find that most airlines would accept the 40L as a carry on, but we have also had some luck with the 55L. We do have a stain removal guide on our website which you can reference [here](https://www.patagonia.com/repairs/#asset-modal-holiday21-repair-stain-removal-accordian-modal). The method will change depending on the type of stain, if you have additional questions about this please connect with customer service.
Love the 55L Black Hole Duffle
The 55L Black Hole Duffle is the perfect bag for a long weekend loaded with all my fishing gear, a weekend getaway sharing the bag with the wife, or for the multiday camping/float trip strapped down to the raft.

I travel internationally for multiple weeks on a carry on and have had pro deals with a number of outdoor equipment manufacturers, including Patagonia.

For my purposes - using packing squares, bags go through rough treatment, more outdoor exposure, and a ton of movement on and off of busses, trains, etc - and the 40L stood out as the best - even as I tried desperately to like other products. This is the best engineered small carry on I could find for world-wide travel given its minimalist design but overall solid engineering - particularly the TPU exterior. I will say the larger volume bags could be better balanced and someone needs to do some chassis and roll engineering because for such innovative technical materials and design, the handle needs work.
Mysterious Geometry = Perfect Inside & Out
The 3 dimensional Trapezoidal shape of this duffel means it packs WAY above it's rated capacity; and - oddly - the dimensions of today's 55L are greater than those of the previous 60L. But who cares? It swallows a huge amount of clothes and gear, especially if you use packing cubes. There's a video on the Internet of a guy placing th...

The bottom of the 55L EXACTLY matched the bottom edge of the overhead, and - yet again - that wonderful Trapezoidal shape helped the inside end of the duffel to conform to the inner curve of the overheads. Sheer genius IMO. Plus, their are so many colorways to choose from; you can either make a statement or go stealthy.
I really do love this bag. I have this one and a 40L that I'll bring with me on trips (usually one but sometimes both, depending) for dirty laundry, souvenirs, etc. I love how foldable it is but do not love having to unfold/refold it. I'm not going to gripe too much about that only because I believe part of the stifness is due to it'... Read Mores sturdiness and I'd rather have the option to check my bag, as that was one of the main draws for me. It's more that i have to think long and hard whether I absolutely have no other choice than to deploy this bag. Definitely give yourself time to fuss with it. It is a solid bag, construction wise. My biggest gripe is the lack of long strap or ability to convert the backpack straps into a single long strap. I would even settle for anchor points and I'd move the long strap from my Cotopaxi 42L over. I'm not picky! Since it's my back-up bag, I really don't want to have to redo all of my packing if I don't need to in order to make this bag easier to carry.
Thank you for sharing this feedback, Cassandra. We're sharing it with our product designers. Some customers have added an aftermarket shoulder strap, clipping it to the haul handles on the ends. Others like to take one of the backpack straps, extend it to its maximum length, and clip it from one attachment point to the one diagonally across the bag. Please let us know if we can be of any help!
High quality duffel
The 55L duffel is made of high quality materials, like all Patgonia gear and clothing I have purchased. I have used this bag for weekend trips, work travel and for 10 days travel abroad. It holds whatever I need to take along. Zippers are made for heavy use. The detachable backpack straps make mobility easy. Very high value here.
Sleek yet rugged but missing a few key features
I love the look and feel of the bag. Superb quality. However, surprisingly, it is missing a few obvious features: 1) there is no sternum strap when using the bag as a backpack. 2) the press studs on the holding straps are hard to push together. 3) it is missing an extra external zipped pocket on the top (when used as a backpack).

Great except no shoulder strap
I wanted this bag for a while and was thrilled to buy it during the Winter Sale -- it is so sturdy and it's great that it can be worn as a backpack. But there are times I just want to sling it over my shoulder, so it's really too bad there's no shoulder strap. That would make it perfect!
Its a true black hole
Went ice climbing for an extended weekend and was able to pack ALL winter gear plus normal clothes into this bag and while it was full I was still able to keep shoving stuff inside.

Nice but a bit big
This 55L bag is noticeably larger than the 60L from a few years ago. Also they no longer have straps in the bag to sinch down the gear you pack. That is a big disappointment. Overall quality is solid and you can fit a lot of gear in. I got away with it as a carry on on Southwest but it was pushing it.
Love the size and openness of this bag. Very easy to pack clothes in. Waterproof which is great since I use it as a ski bag. Im not big on the packable bag into the smaller section.

Hi Eva! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with bags.

You're absolutely correct, Victoria; the 55L has larger dimensions than the earlier 60L version (26.7" x 15.7" x 11.8" vs 25" x 13" x 10"), but the capacity measurement is more accurate. We have changed the way we measure the volume of these packs, and the current pack really does carry 55L.

Had for 3 years and love it! It fits a deceptively large amount of stuff so works for short or long trips- I've lived out of it for a little over a week with no issue. Fits in overhead bins and comfortable as a backpack. Only thing is I wish the water resistant material was on the bottom as well

Impressed by the ruggedness of the Black-Hole bag, yet it's amazingly lightweight.

However, it really was a terrible travel experience with this bag. I used it as a carry on, and it was not packed to the brim, just a couple if changes of clothes, small toiletries bag, swimwear, book and a pair of flip flops. It was not full at all. But, when wearing it as a backpack it was incredibly uncomfortable since everything shifted to the bottom and then bumped around as I walked. The bag straps do not easily slide over a luggage handle either, so if I wanted to roll it on top of my larger roller bag, it slid off very easily, making rolling through a crowded airport almost impossible. And today, my back is killing me after one day of travel while trying to maneuver this unwieldy bag. I hope to return it, as no one else in my family wants to use the bag, after seeing how terrible my experience was. I will talk to customer service about a refund after they return from holiday break.

It was perfect (55L) and the mechanism for the shoulder straps made quick attachment/detachment a breeze. High quality fabric and mechanisms. Have an older and smaller bag which is a gem. The fact these are sold out speaks for itself, indispens... Read Moreable and completely reliable product. Don't know if I could lift a fully packed larger size, but others likely can.
2 week trip bag.
Bag has plenty of space for a 2 week trip! Packed it with hot, rainy, and cold climate gear. 55L had more than enough space for the trip. Even fully packed its easy to carry as a backpack, especially for a lot of small flight jumping! Bought the wife a 55L as well since her 90L is quite large and not as easy to handle when on the go a lot.
The Perfect Travel Bag
I kept this bag in it's packed form for my trip back to my parent's and then unfolded it and stuffed it to use as a checked bag for my flight home. The bag still looks in new condition after being checked! This bag also makes a great weekender if that's what you're looking for.
