When you’re traveling to the far reaches (or just to the climbing gym), and your gear organization resembles the floor of a teenager’s bedroom, our Lightweight Black Hole™ Duffel is just what you need to create order from your chaos. Made from lightweight yet seriously tough ripstop nylon with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish, it resists abrasion, protects your gear from the elements and still stuffs into its own pocket when not in use. The clean design features a diagonal zipper that opens wide to access a roomy main compartment; a small stash pocket inside holds easily lost items like keys or a gym pass. Tubular webbing grab handles are strong, comfortable and adjustable, enabling you to carry this bag in your hand, over your shoulder or as a backpack. A micro daisy chain provides various lash points for additional gear. Made from 7.1-oz 210-denier 100% nylon ripstop with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by James11 from Daily Commuter Bag! Another outstanding piece of gear from Patagonia that has worked its way into my everyday routine. I carry this bag to and from work each day, and it has enough room to hold my lunch, an extra pair of shoes, my gym clothes, and whatever other various accoutrements I require for that particular day. I have also used it as a carry-on item for traveling, and it will easily fit three days worth of clothes if packed judiciously. I love the fact that I can walk from my car to my office in a complete downpour and not have to worry about anything inside my bag! The bag is extremely well made and very, very durable - mine looks brand new after a year, with nary a scratch to be found. I receive compliments on it constantly, and it looks excellent paired with a Patagonia roller bag as well, just sayin'!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dr Will from Kind of a thing Hi, my name is Will and I am a "Pata'holic". But although admitting you have a problem is typically the first step on the road to recovery, I am not yet ready to change my ways. Why? Well let's just put aside for a moment the fact that as a company Patagonia has committed to a series of responsible manufacturing practices that is good for both the laborers and the environment. Let us even forget the simple fact that Patagonia has been able to set the world of physics on its head. (How can these be so? see attached photo - actual living proof that Patagonia has made it possible for multiple Black Holes to share joining space). Let us look past the mind blowing physics and awesome social well fare awareness and instead focus on the fact that the black hole duffel is pure amazingness in shiny slick canvas (or some material of the sorts) form. I travel A LOT. When I travel I also find myself carrying A LOT of gear. It is the curse of being an archaeologist. Shovels, trowels, metal sample boxes, super awesome goat curds made by pastoralists on the Mongolian steppe; at one time or another I have transported this equipment across the country and across the word. Each time the black hole duffle has come through like a champ. The numerous different size categories means that you can either use one as a carry-on (ca. 40L) or as that awesome massive bag to transport large bulk checked items (ca. 60 to 120L). Although Patagonia has yet to figure a way to keep TSA from rumbling through your junk, they at least provide a tough durable bag to help you carry your stuff to your final destination. My favorite feature has to be the large top opening that allows you to pack/access your gear in a very organized manner. You can both fit large items in as well as see all that you have pack in a pretty convenient top opening. This has been really helpful when I use the 40L bag as a carry on. The large opening means it is easy to organize my equipment as well as easily access stuff I put on top. This is important during the security checks as it allows me to quickly pull out things like computers and solar batteries (all items that the TSA wants to x-ray separately). Inevitably it is not the bag that makes the trip but rather the destination and the gear you get to carry during various adventures. But with that said these bags are durable, tough, and well constructed. Be it baggage handlers worldwide or chicken filled dusty buses on back roads, these bags are up to the task
