We built the Black Hole™ Pack because more often than not, your day has its own plans. This rugged, highly weather-resistant gear bag protects your belongings when the weather turns surly or your hike morphs into a contentious scramble. The large main pocket holds the lion’s share. An internal padded sleeve protects most 15" laptops or accommodates a hydration reservoir, and a mesh pocket equipped with a key keeper organizes small items. Daisy chain lash points secure a skateboard or yoga mat—a zippered front pocket holds quick-access items. For carrying comfort, the backpack’s padded shoulder straps have load lifters and a sternum strap, or you can carry it with a top-mounted reinforced haul handle. A molded back panel sheds moisture and allows a cooling airflow, and a simple waistband secures the pack. Made from 13-oz 450-denier polyester ripstop (50% solution-dyed) with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Water Resistant

DWR (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than I ever expected Bought this for our trip to New Zealand where we would be outside hiking and fishing all day. It was also great as it fits the computer safely for travel. Fits everything I needed, and the style allowed for an extra rode to stick out the top while hiking. The front pocket is roomy and great for easy access to items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features This bag is pretty sweet. The zipper access is awesome and I can fit a yoga mat in it. I just wish the bottom was water resistant as well. I get tons of compliments on it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Potential to be awesome, came up a bit short I really wanted to love this bag and I'm (still) going back and forth about returning it for a few reasons: 1) The side zip opens from the bottom, which is a huge issue for me in terms of securing my items while traveling, moving in crowded spaces, public transit, etc. I wish both zippers closed at the top - the way it currently works, you can easily lift the bottom side zipper a few inches and you have access to the contents in the bag 2) I purchased this bag as a work/travel bag, particularly for conditions with wet weather. The fabric that makes up the bag is awesome (love the bottom fabric as well) - durable, looks good, and good water resistance. My issue tis that when you're walking in the rain/snow, the bag tends to sit in a way where water easily enters the bag through the hydration tube opening at the top (which is almost directly above where my laptop sits) and coats the top layer of padding. I'm not sure how to fix the padding wetness issue, but I wish the hydration tube opening didn't allow such easy access for moisture Otherwise, I love the bag - interior pockets, style, size. But honestly, if I can't figure out a way to address these two issues, I'll be returning the bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Missing lid pocket I have had the 25L pack for years - it's awesome! Was just looking to size up, since I find I could use a bigger pack, and while everything is great, I am really disappointed it doesn't have a lid pouch. If you stuff the one outside vertical zip with things that would normally go in a lid pouch, it makes it difficult to fill the main compartment, because the front pouch then pushes into that space. I also would love an outside water bottle pocket - thought that was a great design change on the new 25L (mine doesn't have it). So it's with mixed feelings I recommend this pack. Two small updates would make this great - honestly didn't think Patagonia would leave out something like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pack But Outside Storage Would Be Great I've had this backpack since December an it is a great bag for school and commuting in Oregon. Very comfortable and it keeps everything dry! Fits 15inch laptop appropriately but wish it was more padded. It is also unfortunate that there is no outside storage for water bottle. There is only a larger outside storage compartment--nothing for water bottle or smaller device like phone. Overall though, It's worth the price if you are looking for a pack that will keep your stuff dry--especially on hikes!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pack is true to its name. Before this bag, I was using a timbuk2 classic messenger, size large, for my daily bike commute to work. I work out every morning before work and bring my work clothes and everything else I need for the day in my bag and it could get quite heavy when I had to bring my laptop. I didn't want to have such a heavy bag being supported by just one shoulder so I started looking for a backpack that had as much storage capacity as my messenger bag and was as easy to pack and access my gear from. The side access that the black hole pack offers is great for quick access and I am able to clip a bike light on the back so that i can be seen while on the road. Overall I really like the bag and am incredibly pleased with it. It doesn't quite fit my work laptop but it has a 17" screen and is rather thick since I do 3D cad work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bag I've bought! I bought this back for an upcoming adventure that I want one. This bag is perfect for traveling or for man's work bag. It's waterproof and very durable. If I said this bag on sale I'm buying two more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Weekend warrior must have backpack This bag is a multi tasker!! I use it every weekend dragging my base layers back in forth from the ski mountain back home to work and then back every weekend. Not only does it hold a good amount of clothes but it has just enough padding to give comfort on your back while simultaneously protecting a laptop or tablet in the inside pocket. The side zip is amazing and allows easy access to any part of your backpack without taking everything out. I keep mine on it's side and as I fill it back up during the week I just unzip the side zip = AWESOME! The top which folds down allows for extra storage if you decide to let it stay unclipped....which I tend to do a lot. Here is the best part!! Usually I have mine so full that I forget it can pack down very nicely! Last weekend I left my smaller water hydration backpack at home by mistake so I decided to try this one. I dumped all the clothes out and was surprised how small you can make it. Plus It is already set up for a water hose and you can clip in a hydration bag inside! Perfect! So I tested it out skinning up the mountain and I have no complaints. Just enough back support, thickness of straps is great and I like the chest clip as well. Now I use it anytime for snowshoeing, hiking or skinning up the mountain. I am sure this summer I will have more to say!
