I bought the "red" bag and use it for a gym bag and go bag for taking this and that between my apartment and my daughters' where I often watch my 2 grandsons. I'd looked at it many times when the floppy free tote from wherever annoyed me. It also was perfect for the waterpark. I was disappointed that only 2 colors were available... Read More and don't even like dark purplish red much, but I chose the "red" eyes wide open over the black. The wide opening works well for me and the very small interior zip pocket carries much of what I need - card for gym, masks, small notebook, keys. Of course that leaves the phone in either a jacket pocket or inside a protective pouch. I'm short so the handles work fine for me. I guess the perfect bag would have one exterior pocket that fit the phone in a protected area and also have room for keys etc. But I'm a fan of the simplicity of this bag and would consider an even smaller version for use as a purse though I rarely carry one.
The Ultimate Mary Poppins Bag!!!
This bag is a wonder! I originally bought it to haul my family's gear (myself + 3 kids) when we go on picnics, to the pool, or other excursions that inevitably seem to require an absurd amount of stuff. It definitely fits the bill. But there's more! It also turned out to be a perfect carry on for a recent trip to Vermont. Not only did it ... Read Morecarry ALLLLL my stuff (fleece, rain coat, travel pillow & blanket, water bottle, snacks), it was perfect for taking out to my work site with a day's worth of gear and spare clothes. Now that I'm back home, it's become my perfect work bag. I'm a woodworker and I love that I can toss all my stuff inside without worrying about the fabric ripping or getting dirty. It's never going to rip, and if it gets dirty I'll just shake it or hose it out. I was originally looking at the larger size but I'm glad I got the 25l instead. It's plenty large for all my stuff but somehow still small enough that I can take it around town without seeming ridiculous! As others have mentioned, a slightly larger pocket would be appreciated. My old phone fit perfectly, but I had to replace it a few months after getting the bag and my new phone doesn't fit, womp womp. Otherwise an entirely perfect bag! If you're on the fence, hop off and get it already!
Almost Perfect Bag
Live in a major city and needed a bag to throw in my toddler's water bottle, tiny backpack, hats, gloves, extra diapers/wipes, etc to take her to school everyday. The bag also needed to take the bulk of the toddler carrier I use to bring her back and forth on public transport. I have 2 of the large size in the version (before they put on the o... Read Moreutside loops to hang things), but had found them too large lately. So this bag fit my needs perfectly. It has the capacity to take all the stuff I mentioned that won't fit in my backpack purse, plus my hydroflask, and an extra long sleeve shirt when the library is cold. The other benefit is it is very light weight unlike some of my canvas bags or other totes. I took off one star because they made the inner pocket too small! I get it that they didn't design this one to fold into the pocket - which, why not? But I'm used to the spacious pockets of rhe larger sizes that can take my cell phone, small hand sanitizer, pens, pacifier, even keys or baby washcloth ID needed. This new bag, the pocket barely takes a few pens and hand sanitizer before feeling way too tight. A smaller bag doesn't mean I need a smaller pocket, and phones are only getting bigger! And if they were going to shrink that pocket, why not make a second pocket to make up for lost space? So that is why I took off one star. Otherwise, it's the same tough durable design of my other ones which take pretty much anything and any abuse and just keep going without signs of wear or tear, and my others are over 5yrs old. So I still recommend these, I just hope they make some adjustments to the next iteration.
I have a couple of the black hole duffle bags and wanted to try one for daily use. This tote has been awesome! I can throw my laptop, lunch, groceries, and anything else in here with ease. Spills can easily be wiped out, it is sturdy and amazingly versatile. I expect many years of enjoyment out of this bag. Thank you Patagonia!
Versatile + Durable
I own 4 of these black hole totes now and I couldn't recommend them more. They are so durable. I use them for everything, from camping to hunting to foraging to getting groceries to packing for trips. The list just goes on and on. They are easy to clean. I have put mine in the wash machine and let them air dry and they're like new. Buy on... Read Moree, you won't be sorry.
Great Bag for Gear
If you want a smaller bag to throw items in for mountain biking or even just going to the gym, this is a super nice bag. High quality and the clip is a great feature. The inside zipper pocket is good for phones and wallets or any other small valuables. Another great Patagonia item.
Tot to take totally everywhere
I got this tote bag in black to pack in my suitcase for my upcoming trip to Australia and New Zealand - finding I use it every day in the states for just grabbing my change of clothes, food for a picnic or farmers Market - its my everyday go bag. In black the shine brings a kinda of elegance to my casual look. Stoked on this bag.
Gorgeous Wax Red Color and Lots of Room
This is my first 25L tote bag from Patagonia. I wanted to try it, because it looked roomy and lightweight. I have the 5L waist pack, the 1L hip pack, and the women's 23L backpack. They're all great products! I love this tote bag. It's so roomy and light, just like I imagined! I like the handles, as the tote stays on my shoulder. I lo... Read Moreve the wax red color with blue colored letters. So pretty! I will keep my eyes on the product listing, in case they add more colors that I would like, e.g. the classic navy blue or a nice purple! Thank you, Patagonia!
The perfect everyday size
This bag is ideal for everyday activities. We use it for groceries, CostCo runs, as a gym bag, etc. and it's big enough to hold everything but small enough to not be cumbersome. The bag hangs mid-calf when I hold it so it doesn't bump my knees. I like it enough that I bought another as a gift.
While I enjoy that ubiquitous canvas tote, I wanted this tote because of its material and ease of cleaning. I fill the Black Hole tote with my farmers market haul, then easily shake out any residue and wipe it clean. I take it to dog parks and friends BBQs. The slightly tapered sides work great in keeping the contents contained. The handles are stu... Read Morerdy and gentle in my hand. The tote feels bombproof. Im so glad I got it.
I wanted to love this bag
I really wanted to love this bag. I am an art teacher & I wanted a work bag that I could wash if it gets dirty. I love the fabric & color. I wish it had a 2nd interior pocket and that the one zippered pocket was a little bit bigger (my phone fits, but it is almost snug). The key hook does not hold my keys (I only have 2 keys on my key ring)... Read More. Finally, I wish there was a magnetic closure. If you just want an open bag with a medium amount of storage, you'll be very happy.
Hi Katie, we're so bummed to hear that the Black Hole® Tote 25L isn't what you expected. If you feel that a [return or exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) would work best, please feel free to begin either at any time.
Practical, useful, durable, and looks good
I bought 2 of these when the 61L tote was out of stock. It was fortuitous that the 61L wasn't available, because these totes are super useful.

Great bag but logo peeled off after 6 months
This is a great bag and the structure is very durable but had problems with the logo disintegrating. I purchased the 25L in black.

This bag is awesome, it
This bag is awesome, it fits so much for its size. It appears shorter than many similar sized bags but is wider than your average tote. This allows for a seemingly smaller bag footprint that holds a ton. This bag is super useful and versatile and would definitely recommend.
Perfect grandma bag
After trying many bags, I found the best updated version of the Mary Poppins carpet bag, to hold all of the stuff required for a day with my 1 yr old granddaughter- drinks, snacks, lunch, sunscreen, extra clothes, diapers, hats, toys, etc etc. I love that this bag is super lightweight when empty, it stands up on its own wide bottom and does not tip...

Great size for carrying 'stuff'
Tired of shoving running stuff into a backpack only to have to fish them out later pre & post run, I bought this tote (my very first tote ever) on a lark to see if it'd be easier to carry my stuff.

Great everyday bag
I love this bag. It's nice and sturdy so it stands on its own and has a flat bottom. It's a great size for bringing a change of clothes or hauling groceries. The only thing I would change is the length of the handles, cause they're a little short to go over your shoulders when it's full.
Best bag ever!
I have three of these and have given a few to friends as well. I use one on a daily basis. They make the best grocery bags as they are seemingly unbreakable.

Grocery runs are so much easier!
I have two of these, and they stay in my SUV at all times, ready for grocery runs and Lowes trips. I almost never use the plastic grocery bags anymore, as I can fit the whole shopping trip in these, and easily load them in the chariot and then into the house.

Black Hole Tote 25 review
Everything is wonderful. The only thing I would encourage on a future tote (which I will be getting) is to add a pocket on the outside for quick access to phone, keys, change, and passport.

I bought this to complement the 61L Black Hole tote. I love the construction, extremely study walls and arm straps. Sized just bigger than a reusable grocery bag, its perfect for shopping trips and hauling items to a friends house. I love this bag (and also highly recommend the 61L Black Hole tote for huge hauls).

Best mid size tote
I had the first version of this tote and I liked it - but the bottom wasn't stiff enough and it was difficult to find stuff in it. This new, revised, improved version is out standing. The bottom is stiffer and it is so much better. Easier to see what is in the bag. I may start collecting this one!! Bravo Patagonia on the improvement.
This is the most sturdy bag I have had
I carry a gallon and half of water to work every day and I need a nice-looking bag to take in and out of the office. I love teal and the bluish bag was perfect for my style. It's heavy-duty enough I don't feel like anything will break or tear and I can throw it in the wash if I need to.
Useful for so many purposes
I love the Black Hole Totes. I bought everyone in the family different colors and it is everyone's grab-all bag. We each throw our personal items (books, gloves, iPads, toys, glasses, etc...) and it keeps us organized. I use them for grocery bags, go to the gym bag, etc. Can't go wrong with this tote!
Say HELLO to my not so little friend!
I initially purchased the 25L for groceries (twice the size of a standard tote!) It has quickly gained a reputation as my EDC gunny sack.

These are great, but you probably need 2 or 3
These totes are so great, and I am a real big "tote guy". Perfect size for one persons surf stuff, fly-fishing boots and waders, MTB shoes / helmet / kit etc.. The only problem is that once you have one, you will realize you need one for every activity! Save yourself on shipping and just buy 2 to start.

Love the bag. Great zipper pocket fur keys or phone. Cleans easily. Love the Coriander Brown and light Grey. One bag has my new #2020 car kit with sanitizer, gloves, masks, wipes.
