Black Hole® Gear Tote 61L

Kinda Large
June 15, 2021

They dont name it Black Hole for nothing.

Well made. One can stuff a ton of anything in this baby. Going to Montana.

The size of this bag, it's waterproof features, bright color, and general sturdiness makes this bag an all-time favorite for swim time: towels, wetsuit, caps, goggles, extra jackets, or bringing food to an event including wine, beer, etc. This wonderful bag NEVER EVER disappoints! And the orange is very fun!!

Best bag on the planet

I am shy to admit that I own many of these. I use this for overnights, for the beach, for laundry, for a comfortable haul of just about anything. Bravo!!

idiot proof bag

May 28, 2021


this thing carries everything. it's my ski bag, grocery bag, running crap bag, swimming crap bag, bag carrying all my stuff bag. I love it. Also my laundry bag. You will not regret having this bag in your life.

True Black Hole

Just like my other Black Hole products, it seems bottomless -- can always stuff one more thing in! Handles are a good length and the straps inside hold items inside well. Great for whatever gear I need to haul.

Very functional

️Great quality materials ️Functional design I may well need another

Black Hole Tote 61L

I bought the blackhole gear tote 61L and I LOVE it! I use it when camping in my pop up, as it holds a ton of whatever Im hauling. Its great for carrying laundry, groceries, I use it when Im traveling back-and-forth from state to state, as it will hold odd shaped items that wont fit in my suitcase. Its my go to bag!! ️

April 9, 2021

super roomy bag

the bag carries skis boots and all the necessaries for a day on the slopes. I endorse it heartily! The straps across the top are a bonus.

April 8, 2021

Haul it all kind off bag

We love these for our family, we have a few of them now and use them for anything from getting groceries, trips with the kids and even rising out or washing wetsuits. Super durable and will hold as much weight as you can carry.

Black Hole Gear Tote

Love these totes they are bomber and so convenient. Kind of a bummer mine arrived with two small holes in the bottom, nothing that a few pieces of duct tape didn't fix.

Hey Justin! We're really sorry to hear about the damages on your Gear Tote. You never should have received it that way! This sounds like a quality control issue. Please [reach out]( to us so we can get this sorted out.

This bag is amazing, BUT, the straps could be a bit wider and a bit longer in relation to the size of the bag. It also could have a few interior pockets. Other than that, it is an amazing bag and literally holds everything. I thought I would fill it on a recent trip (with clothing, iPad, boots, etc.) and I had room to spare! I have this and the sma...

Amazingly simple yet functional

I love the simplicity. It's so fool-proof and easy, just toss everything you need inside and go. Use it for climbing and skiing, it fits literally everything so I don't forget to take anything from my storage room. Highly recommended. Will purchase another one when less boring colors are available - black really isn't my favourite :)... Read More

This bag is awesome. However it is HUGE. A picture with a person holding it, in the ad would have been helpful. Not sure now what I am going to use it for now.... hmmmm.

Massive Grocery Bag

Quality does not disappoint here. I also have the 25 liter variant of this bag and both are excellent for car camping trips, hauling gear up to the ski resorts, and trips to the grocery store. If you own and love black hole bags - you will love this too

January 14, 2021

Super tough

Use this for grocery shopping. I put 60 lbs in it sometimes. Grocery clerks are jealous. Saves all those plastic bags.

January 7, 2021

Super Nice

Love it

December 30, 2020

Never knew I needed such a big tote, no looking back now!

This tote is big, big. And I love it. I thought it would live in my car as a place for all the things that roll around to live, but I use it for literally everything now. Can easily fit 6-7 gallon containers of water, which equals like 3 peoples surf stuff and the whole families MTB gear.

61L Tote Bag

Great piece of gear Used for all excursions these days, Camping, Fishing and family trips Toss your stuff in and go! Love it...

October 27, 2020

Room for all your gear and then some!

Love this Black Hole tote! The large capacity worked perfectly for organizing (swallowing up) gear in the trunk for a long weekend of hiking/car camping here in the PNW. I do think it would be a bit cumbersome, even as a bigger guy, to haul around as a more daily carry. But as for keeping gear organized on the way to the trails or ski slopes or in ...

I use this to keep my kiddos stuff in, it never leaves the car except to refill it, I know it is large but it can sit in the floor and collect all his stuff its awesome, I want to get a second one for all of my work stuff as well. love this bag so easy to keep clean I keep trying to find another one for every day use the 25 l and can't seem to...

Where has it been all my life?

A month in, and what a great product! Very sturdy, and holds everything from wetsuits to running kit to cycling helmets & shoes. Great design with the clips to tighten the loads (I respectfully disagree with the reviewers who thought a zip would make a useful addition - I think it would distract from the simplicity and functionality). I liked i... Read Moret so much, I sent one to a relative living in Chamonix (road-cycling/ free-skiing and touring legend), and she used the phrase in the review title when thanking me.

THE bag

This is the best giant bag youll ever own, I use it for everything! Sturdy, GIANT, one pocket so you dont lose ur keys or phone. I can throw all of my gear into this bag in the car, in my house, and it controls the chaos.

August 18, 2020

Super Roomy and Super Useful

This was the perfect "junk" bag to hold all those loose, bulky items you need on a long trip. I used it on a 7,500 mile hiking, camping, road trip. It worked perfectly to hold stuff for meals and other random camp bits like frisbees, dishes, growlers, fuel tanks, etc. Super durable and it only seemed to get better as the trip progressed. ...

Beautiful Big Bag!

I love tote bags because you can see everything and this one can hold A LOT! I have the smaller gear tote, but this one is great. It's big, and a little heavier than the lightweight black hole gear tote, but it holds more, and I love the little clips to keep in all of the sporting goods gear we have to lug around. I wish there were more colors... Read More!

Love it!

So much to love! As with all the black hole bags, the fabric is easy to clean and durable. This tote is awesome because it stands straight up, with a big square opening, and I can throw items in with ease and most importantly I can see everything inside. Handles are good length, I can carry comfortably on my shoulder or by hand. I travel to our cab... Read Morein every weekend and this is my new go-to bag!

The Big Bag

I never thought I would be rating a bag but what a nice surprise this has been. I use this bag primarily for fishing. It is so nice to be able to huck my wet, muddy boots and waders into the bag until I get home, then I hose off my boots, waders, and the bag. It cleans easily and is bomb proof. Thank you!

Best everything tote!!

With a quick shake to get out sand, this goes from my go-to beach bag with kids toys, towels, etc right to my mountain gear bag! Definitely the best bag that I have purchase! It will continue to be my everything bag for years to come. It is quite large, but is not bulky when it is only 1/2 full.

Throw everything in it and take off!

Youre not gonna find a better tote for big, awkward items. Got this to carry snorkeling gear for two people, which includes 2 full wetsuits, 2 sets of fins, 2 masks in cases, 2 snorkels and 2 sets of neoprene booties. Everything fits perfectly and to keep it from getting unwieldy, Patagonias included the clip straps that keep the bag closed without... Read More having to jam everything in. Its just like having ratchet straps to secure everything inside. Not much more you could ask for with this! And will last a lifetime. Much better than a gear specific bag that only has one use - this can be used for anything!

Best snow sport bag!

This is the best bag-bar none-for carrying your ski/snowboard gear to the mountain in the back of your car or suv - and then wherever you need to go-ski or snowboard boots can go on the bottom with no ice melt or mud getting in the car and you can fit your helmet, goggles, ski pants and jacket and other gear and still carry it easily!

I got this to carry our family bike gear which is often muddy. It fits lots of helmets and shoes and can easily be cleaned.

“The” bag

This bag does it all. I take it on road trips and on the boat. It packs laundry, clothes, picnic lunches, beach outings, groceries and everything, then folds away to nothing. You will need more than one.

December 9, 2019

If you’re considering it....DO IT

this bag is amazing, my girlfriend and I named ours Lizzie. It’s down for any adventure and won’t disappoint. Build quality and look are what you’d expect from Patagonia. Very compact when empty and a weekends worth of gear can be put into it no problem. Buy this bag.

Good, but Needs 2 Improvements

Great bag but I’d like to see a zipper added to close it for use in crowded cities and more zippered pockets on the inside.

Best large bag!

Held 4 blankets, 3 coats, and lots of small items. Plus, waterproof! Great bag for carrying lots of things!

Great kit

I have 2 of these and they are brilliant. I thought they were expensive initially, but they have lasted years already. Perfect for putting either climbing or biking gear into and transferring between the house - van - anywhere. Great to organise and move gear around.

November 22, 2019


Love this tote. It's huge and can carry a ton. Used it for two pairs of ski boots and clothes, food and beverages for a day on the boat... you name it. Awesome bag and cool looking.

The carry ALL gear bag!

This bag is awesome. Big enough for a crew's worth of bike helmets or pfd's. The straps across the top to keep things contained and tuck easily out of the way. The handles are stout and easy to carry.

October 29, 2019

Room enough to stand in it!

So much room and love that I can change in/out of my waders or wet suit. Exactly what I was looking for!

gear tote

best bag i have ever purchased. I wish it had a zip top closure however. Very good for going to the beach, going on a road trip etc.

Perfect Fishing Bag

I've been using this tote to haul waders and boots around rivers. So far it is the perfect size, you can step in and out, straps to cinch it all down, great fishing piece. Very versatile

Perfect bag for weekend roadtrips or car camping

This bag works perfectly for the reason that I purchased it: loading up the gear I would need for a weekend climbing/camping getaway. The fact that it stands upright means that you can leave it open in your living room and just toss gear, clothes, food, etc. into it as cross items off of your packing list. It large enough that it just eats up gear.... Read More The adjustable straps keeps things secure for when you walk the bag to car. The fact that it stands up also makes it easy to find what you need without having to take the bag out of the car (or trunk). The only thing that I would add is an internal zippered mess pocket on a side wall to hold magazines, but otherwise this is exactly what I was looking for.

Big Sturdy Tote

As advertised, large, well-built tote that can handle anything you throw into it. Not one you would take to the grocery store, however. Pretty heavy duty sized.

September 8, 2019

The Ultimate

Handy to put stuff in and get stuff from. No pointless zipping and unzipping and compartments just chuck everything in. Put smaller bags in it if you need sub-organization. Any trip not on a plane I will use this, and still bring it folded up because it’s so light and use it once I get there (the new bigger size just came out but I’ve been wanting ... Read Morethe bigger one since using the small one for a while now). Very durable and water resistant. Stands up open on its own. Oh and it’s 100% recycled. Patagonia is several steps above the rest.

"Fantastic bag"

I have 6 of the smaller bags, and use them all the time for so many things. I got one of the 61L bags because in this case, bigger is better, I have put firewood in it as well as tons of towels. I took one to my local hot springs and it work great to change in. This is a must have for parents, campers and anyone that likes to be outside doing stuff... Read More. I will end with saying that, when you purchase this bag or anything else from PATAGONIA, you are making a difference for all humans on this planet. I am not a paid Patagonia rep, however I love the planet I share with with everyone else, we can all make difference.

Great Big gear tote

I have been using the 25 L tote for the last year as a quick gear bag, this larger tote is handy for organizing longer trips with more gear. Love the fact that it is made with recycled materials!

August 22, 2019

great, multipurpose bag

We love this bag! Great size, as its super large, but the lightweight material and flexible shape give it a feel of not being super large. We've had it a couple weeks - it appears to be great quality to last a long time.

Wader bucket

The perfect bucket for dropping in all my wet stuff from the river. Big and love the inside straps to hold it together.
