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.

Black Hole® Duffel 70L

Kinda Large
November 27, 2023

Awesome Bag for Travel

Great bag with plenty of room for extended travel.

November 17, 2023

So good I bought 3

Amazing piece for all activities, durable, easy to carry & travel with and you can just load it with so much gear!

November 13, 2023


Just replaced my last one, which was 10+ years old with constant use. Holds up really well. Good setup with the backpack straps, even as a small person.

November 8, 2023

Too big

I wasn’t aware how big the duffel bag was. It would be have been nice to indicate if you are at a certain height the bag may be too big for you. Which is what it was. The product is great. I am returning it today. Sorry.

Response from Patagonia
November 14, 2023

Dear Anne C., thank you for taking time to share your feedback on the Black Hole Duffel 70L. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the size of the bag. Your suggestion about including sizing information in relation to a person's height is so valuable, and we will consider for future improvements. While we are glad you found the overall quality great, we completely understand your decision to return the duffel. Feel free to begin your [return]( at any time.

It really is a "black hole"...

It's my first black hole bag and I am thrilled about it! It holds so much stuff that I am afraid it might break. So, yes; I am getting another one, this thing is build solid! I can stuff it with two solid weeks of clothing easily and in style. I'm loving it!

October 18, 2023

Fantastic bag

Fantastic bag, used for my last trip to Patagonia Argentina for a fishing trip, without problem 3 4-section rods and all the fishing clothing and equipment fit in, perfect size to check in on the plane

Excellent customer service for great bag

I purchased a 70L duffle bag for a safari. The bag was too large for a short, older woman to carry. I brought it to the store after the trip as part of the worn product policy. I was extremely pleased that the store gave me a full refund for the product because it was still in excellent condition and I had not had much opportunity to enjoy it. Rare...

Great for your travel hiking trips

Its a GREAT pack for a week+ of travel camping/hiking. I fit my trekking poles, sleeping bag, hiking boots, etc in there and still fit more. The zippers on the top lid are an excellent addition. The straps work so well for carrying it to a campsite or through the airport. The material is sturdy and held up well with 6 flights total to/from my d... Read Moreestination. Now to plan my next adventure. :)

Decent bag just miss the bigger sizes that used to be offered.

Decent bag has a plastic feel but gooes after wiping with a damp cloth. Would have liked better instructions on how to set up the bag though.

Great for traveling

Great size for a trip where you may bring more home than you brought with you.

July 24, 2023


I have multiple of the black hole duffels now, with my new purchase of a 70L being the largest. The reason I didn't give 5 stars is a I wish this large size had at least a small hip belt to help carry it.

July 21, 2023

Buy it once, have it forever

This bag was an investment purchase. It is durable, made responsibly, and will clearly last a lifetime with good care. I chose Patagonia over the other brands because of the sustainability aspect. I don't want to have to buy another duffle bag again, and this bag checks all the boxes.

Great duffel bag

Strong, cavernous, lightweight, comfortable to carry. Perfect size for luxurious week long trips or packing light on longer trips.

May 2, 2023

Great Pack

This pack is perfect for a short trip, as a heavy packer, this duffel has some serious space. Perfect size.

March 27, 2023

Large enough

I was a little afraid, that 70l would be to small for my needs, but honestly since I'm 50, the 100l would be just to heavy to carry it around. If not now, for sure in 20 years as I plan to have this product.

March 24, 2023

Great bag!

This black hole 70L duffel is an awesome bag. Fits all I need for a weekend +. Well made and seems like it will last forever!

March 22, 2023

Tough, rugged and good water protection

I ordered the 70 L black hole to compliment the other black hole bags I'm using. These are perfect for storing gear and clothing in my van having them ready for use when I need. I can toss the bag on the ground (at our dry) and feel confident the gear inside is protected.

Works great as a ski boot bag. Lightweight and durable.

Into The Void

Fits everything I need for a day on the slopes and more with ease. I could pack a weeks worth of gear in here without breaking a sweat.

March 5, 2023

Very Dependable!

This has to be my 6th black hole bag and now I have just about every size. These bags a so reliable! Ive been using one at work and sits In the bed of my pickup truck year round in all elements and its held up great!

March 4, 2023

Amazing bag

I tested out this bag for the first time as a checked bag while traveling. I was able to buy a discounted bag for a color that was going out of style. It is incredibly sturdy (it was packed completely full) and I appreciate the details. There are many zippered compartments, attachment points, and then backpack straps make a huge difference and are ... Read Moreeasy to use. The 70l is a good size for me for longer trips or to hold hiking gear. It withstood the airport (I removed the backpack straps first). It was great for a weeklong trip.

February 23, 2023

I use this for a travel carryon

This duffel is everything you need, it even doubles as a backpack when needed. It zippers into its own pouch, but after you open it good luck getting it back in.

February 20, 2023

Perfect Travel Bag!

This bag is durable and versatile.

February 19, 2023

Solid Bag

Great bag! I love the zipper track design that opens the top of the bag, as opposed to the more typical zipper down the middle design. When you open the zipper, you're able to access all areas of the bag. The backpack style straps are handy and add to the versatility of this bag.

February 15, 2023

Great back

I'm really impressed with the build quality of the black hole. Even the snaps on the fabric that hold the two top handles together are well made. The 70L is the perfect size.

February 14, 2023

Great bag!

I bought this to hold my snowboard gear during the winter and camping gear in the summer. It fits my boots, pants, jacket, helmet, etc. easily. I love that it is waterproof and has an interior pocket to hold little stuff. The backpack handles are a little awkward when you want to carry without strapping to your back but it isn't a big deal.

February 13, 2023

Extremely functional and very durable! Travels well!!!

I love the style and especially the spaciousness of the bag. Travels well and is extremely durable !!

February 11, 2023

Black Hole bags are the best. A friend of mine called it 'Pata-Gucci' when she first saw it, but who cares. I know what I have. This thing will last forever.

February 9, 2023


best bag in the biz. can fold it up, throw it up, pack it up, rough it up, almost waterproof if you are needing to throw on roof rack- for this price though, this bag is a STEAL and a LEGEND

February 9, 2023

Amazing bag

Amazing bag! Waterproof, space, quality zippers and stitching, carrying options, fits in carry on bins, and all around versatile

February 9, 2023

This bag is a rockstar

When you purchase duffles for the rugged travel of throwing it into the unknown this bag is doing the job. Airplanes, backs of trucks, boats, water. Love the backpack straps and the zippers. Zippers are essential. So far they are doing the perfect job.

February 8, 2023


Great bag the second bag I own. Only small detail which I think would be nice if the outside pocket was not integrated into the inner pouch. Love the bag.

February 5, 2023

Don't miss out on this bag!

A great, sturdy, all-purpose traveling bag that can hold a lot, and one I am sure I will use for many, many years to come.

February 3, 2023

Better off with a backpacking pack

(70L) Decided to use this bag for traveling/backpacking in SE Asia based on a couple recommendations. Cannot stress this enough when I say I should have gotten an actual backpacking pack. The product is good and the duffel bag is solid, but using it as a backpack with the straps is unbearable. Trying to lug it around an airport by the handle or str... Read Moreaps is miserable (perhaps the wheeled version is better but then thats even more money). Very overpriced for what you get. Some of the more expensive backpacks are not even as much as this bag. It fits a ton, but then you cant carry it which defeats the purpose. In Asia now, I am highly considering ditching this bag and buying a proper backpacking bag. My fault for buying this bag, traveling is NOT what it is meant for.

Response from Patagonia
February 14, 2023

We're sorry for the disappointment. It does sound like you need to find a true backpack with a frame designed for carrying all the gear on your back, properly distributing the weight throughout for the kind of traveling you're doing. The backpack straps on this duffel are merely for quick carry for a short time. And the wheeled version is well-suited for longer transit. We recommend that you check with a [Patagonia-owned store]( about trading your bag to Worn Wear for merchandise credit. Please reach out to our Customer Service team if you have any additional quesitons. We'll be happy to help!

January 29, 2023

Great duffel

Great for an overnighter or a weekend getaway. Although this bag comes with backpack straps, I think a shoulder strap would be a nice feature.

January 27, 2023

Casual weekend travel

Great bag. Only one suggestion.. pockets on inside. Love the waterproof material, great size to hold everything you need for 5 day trip.

January 27, 2023

Quality Duffel Bag

I was just looking for a simple duffel bag for all around use. This one seems good quality though Ive only used it once. The zipper feels durable and smooth. The material of the bag is tough and the handles are comfortable. The bag comes with two long straps which can act as backpack straps, but there is no traditional shoulder strap included which... Read More would have been nice. My only real complaint is the storability. The bag comes neatly packed into itself using one of the pockets as a storage pouch. It was very difficult to remove due to the rigid nature of the bag material. I have no idea how to go about getting back in that pocket.

Response from Patagonia
February 6, 2023

Hey Brett, thanks for the review, we appreciate your feedback. We're happy to help you with the process of getting the bag back into its pocket; please reach out to [customer service](*jvq3w8*_ga*MTE3MzgxOTU4OS4xNjQ3NTMxMTc0*_ga_1SYPSJZYJ5*MTY3NTcyNjQ4NC41MDEuMC4xNjc1NzI2NDg0LjAuMC4w) for further detail. First, we remove the backpack straps and unzip the front pocket from both ends, while also unzipping the top of the bag. Next, we tuck the backpack straps to the side of the duffel opposite the front pocket, and fold the sides downward, while tucking in the top flap into the bag. From there, we flip the bag so the bottom is upwards and button up the handles together across the bottom. Then, you'll want to fold the bag into thirds, and then fold that in half once more. At that point you can begin to push the bag into the pocket by going one side at a time. We realize the process is a bit complicated typed out, so we encourage you to reach out to us so we could send some pictures along with instruction.

Beautiful color, nice and big

I purchased the wax red color, which is a beautiful red color. I have the matching backpack. I purchased the 70L as a family duffle bag that can be carried on my back to free up my hands. I can perfectly fit my mine, my spouse's, and children's (2 of them) clothing for a 5 day vacation trip. It's durable, stays clean, and I have rece... Read Moreived tons of compliments on it. It's such a great product.

Great bag

Great bag bought on sale at a reasonable price but the manner in which it was shipped almost ruined it. Patagonia has out smarted itself with the way it ships bags making it infuriating to unpack.

Perfect size for a week trip!

This bag is not too small and not too big. Simply put, it's just what I needed.

Best duffel bag

I expected a big package with my duffel bag to arrive and was surprised to see a small box. Then I remembered the photo which showed that you can fold it into a small bag.

I like the option that you can fold it that small because I sometimes only need one bag on one way of a trip but two on the other. Super sturdy and functional.

Black Hole Bag saved my holiday!!

I was recently flying home for the holidays. I had just received this Black Hole Bag and had it packed with lots of holiday goodies. Well...the airline lost my bag. I was certain that I would never see it again. Fortunately, they did find it. Unfortunately, it was covered in black grease and diesel fuel. I thought everything inside would be ruined.... Read More To my surprise the contents of my bag were safe and dry. I was then able to clean all the grease and fuel off of the bag with soap and water! Amazing! The quality and durability of the materials were put to the test and this bag really proved it's worth. I will continue to fly with Black Hole bags knowing with confidence that they can withstand the unpredictable events that occur while traveling.

Exceptional bag

This bag does absolutely everything. Highly recommend to anyone.

The best duffel bags available

I have just bought my 3rd and 4th duffel. I have been using the 40L and the 55L for about 3 months and I suspect others are reading through wondering what size they need. I only use them for work travel, so no heavy clothing (yet) or gear etc. I also don't use packing cubes as I would with a backpack, but I still fold/roll carefully. I've... Read More found as a single man with an average amount of toiletries and electronics the 40L is great for up to 4 days and the 55L is great for a week. I have bought a second 55L to use for skiing and a 70L for trips >1 week. These are amazing bags that seem extraordinarily durable even after many car/airplane trips in a compressed period of time. They have internal structure, which to me makes them easier to pack & then open & live out of than Patagonias bean-based competitors bags with a similar reputation for durability. My only gripe is that I wish there was the option to use a traditional shoulder sling.

November 27, 2022

I used it to travel

I used it to travel big enough for my stuff and small enough to take is carry on

Everything I had hoped for

This is our third duffel purchased through Patagonia. My partner was in need of a larger travel bag, and the 70L was the perfect choice. Durable, fashionable, and made by great people.

Roomy and durable

The 70 L bag was awesome for a weeks worth of fly fishing and camping gear. I tossed it around in the back of truck beds, campsites, and airports and have not experienced a problem. Pretty water resistant as well.

Top class

So we have had this duffel bag for a month now and we think its great. Straps are really well done and can be removed really easy. Large opening, loads of pockets. I would definitely recommend

September 29, 2022


This is my second bag of the same size. Its the perfect size for all travels. The only negative, I wanted the same color green as my previous one to match, but the gold is just as easy to spot in the airport.

I really like the 70L

I really like the 70L Black Hole Duffle. It holds all of my gear and give me different options to carry it.

September 22, 2022

Truly a black hole

70l black hole bag is exactly what you think it is. A well made, durable black hole. Water resistance coating really beefs up the outer protection. The bag has enough room to fit multiple shoes, all your casual clothes as well as some of my cycling or hiking gear making it the perfect bag for medium to long getaways.

September 19, 2022


Im a fan of the black hole duffel bags - I have several. Great for hauling gear and travel (the detachable shoulder straps are so helpful when zipping around an airport or navigating through buildings/hotels) . Well made and they look good, too.

August 26, 2022

Amazing ability to carry so much!

Our family have been "black hole" Patagonia users for many years. I finally caved and got the 70L size (for myself!) for an upcoming trip to Italy. The ease of packing so much, yet being able to use it as a backpack was the determining factor. This bag is tough, roomy and easy to haul for trips everywhere. Can't recommend this bag en...

Good Travel Bag

For road trips, this is my go to bag. I pack everything in and throw it in the trunk of my car. Brought it with me for a weeklong trip to Europe and it worked fine, had plenty of extra space and was surprisingly able to bring it on as a carry on. It did take a bit of shoving to fit it in the overhead compartment. The only things that was a "me... Read Moreh" was actually wearing it as a backpack. Would not recommend wearing it for an extended period of time as it kind of hurts your shoulders after a while. And also if it's not fully stuffed, everything kind of sags down the bag when wearing it like a backpack. Otherwise, this bag is super durable and excellent quality.

easy to travel with

Was given as a high school graduation gift. The new freshman traveled with 3 weeks of clothes from Connecticut to Texas. Duffel was easy to travel through the airport. Easy to store in his room.

Black Hole Bags - Great for everything!

Our family are huge fans of the Black Hole bags. Amazing for family travel, especially with the backpack straps. Before the full line was available we had The North Face version for our kids. Great concept, but we found very hard to use. Fabric was so stiff, and the zippers impossible to use. We started with a black hole backpack for one of our kid... Read Mores for school which was great (we are big fans of Patagonia and have been for years & years). For Christmas we bought 40 & 55 size for our kids, one going to college which it will be perfect for. We have since gone back to purchase the the fanny pack for dog walks, the 70 for the college child, and to start building a set for ourselves. We live in Colorado and try to get up to the mountains as often as we can, easy to throw in the car and stack. Thank you for great options. Great bags, lightweight, and zippers work fantastic!

July 26, 2022

Works great!

I use this as a duffel bag for vacations.

July 22, 2022

Travel to Europe

My sons traveled 3weeks in Europe on planes, trains, and automobiles. The 70 L bag met all specs for no extra charges. Backpack straps were awesome. Now the youngest is off to college again with his bag. It doesnt even look worn. Id buy it again.

July 21, 2022

Holds a TON, easy to transport

I originally bought this bag because I needed a travel bag that didn't have wheels because many places I went weren't wheely bag friendly (lots of dirt and sand paths or stairs) and was still easy to carry. The convertible backpack straps are a BREEZE to use. Though I will say, they can get a little sore if you wear them for a while (lon... Read Moreg trek up a mountain side or through the airport). This bag has taken a beating throughout the US, Europe, South Africa, Botswana, and my remote field work area in Namibia. I've even used this bag in place of a proper "backpacking" pack for an overnight hike in the Black Forest in Germany. Note for flyers: this is definitely not a carry-on-friendly size, but if you need a few weeks' worths of travel gear or you are bringing larger gear, this bag is your go-to! I highly recommend this bag and am considering getting a smaller size for shorter trips as this (70L) one can be a little awkward to carry when it isn't very full (collapses on itself).

June 4, 2022

Durable and Great Looking

I bought some Black Hole Duffels for a recent trip to Switzerland and I plan to use them for another trip to Alaska soon. They are durable, pack easy, and look great. I am super happy with them and hope they last as long as others have said they do!

May 23, 2022

Great Bag

Very stylish, easy to pack, holds incredible amount of cargo.

May 23, 2022

Perfect bag for the money

There are many options for duffel bags, but this one is the perfect combination of storage-space-to-price. Excellent zippers, good handles, sturdy construction. Will last for decades, likely.

May 23, 2022

Never Disappoints

The Black Hole bags are the best choice for a backpack carrying style duffel. The new lid design definitely ups the usability of these duffels and seems to "create" more space in the bag. I prefer using my 70L duffel over a suitcase for travelling on a week long trip.

May 23, 2022

Good Bag

Great bag, it seems like it'll last forever!

This is truly a black hole. Perfect for travel. Easy to pack around a ton of essentials.

Awesome Bag, larger than expected

Just received my bag in the mail. Very pleased with the quality of it, but was surprised by how large it is (guess they don't call it that black hole for nothing). Was curious is anybody has any experience carrying this on a plane in the overhead compartment. It seems like completely full might be too large?? I have 70L. Thanks !

Response from Patagonia
April 14, 2022

Hey Greg, thanks for the review. The 70L version of this bag measures in at 28" x 17.5" x 13", so it might be too large to use as a carry on for most airlines. We can confirm that we have been able to use the [Black Hole Duffel Bag 55L]( which comes in at 26.7" x 15.7" x 11.8", but we can't guarantee that would be the case for all airlines. The Black Hole 40L wheeled duffel or regular duffel versions should be safe bets.

Trying to replace a 90L

It used to be that our two 90L duffels were sufficient for the family to share as needed, but when both of my teens wanted to go on the school trip to Guatemala with me, we needed a third. Alas, there is no longer a 90L, and with supply chain issues, the 100L were impossible to come by! So I ordered a back-ordered 70L that was scheduled to arrive i... Read Moren time. The date came and went without a shipping notice, and I found another color that was in stock. I ordered it too, just to be safe. They both arrived in time, and my husband is glad that he gets one now, too! I was pleasantly surprised that I was still able to fit two weeks worth of clothing (from mountain to tropical conditions), my sleeping bag, pad, and hammock with 20L less to work with. It did keep me from over-packing, but was very doable. Im definitely glad I splurged on packing cubes. I used one to keep undies and socks from floating around and the other to separate the clothes Id only need in the other location. Very happy with my 70L and actually glad I didnt get the gigunda one! The whole family prefers the backpack option to rolling bags as we are all tall and cant ever seem to control the rollers, and glad we now have 4!

Perfect Bag - lots of room!

Purchased for daughter who sails year-round and was worried might have ordered too big (ordered 70L). It's actually the perfect size! She can fit her gear in, wear it on her back, sturdy enough to check for flights, and holds all she needs for a weekend! Plus - the red color makes it easy to spot amongst tons of black bags!

December 3, 2021

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.

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.

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.

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.

Gone Fishing

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

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.

Excellent Bag.

The bag is great.

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 .

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.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.
