The Go-To Tote

Originally got this item to hold all my climbing gear. Then I tried deciding I needed something bigger for certain situation's with climbing. But this tote would not let me put it down. Whether it's to go to the movies and throw some blankets and extra snacks, or running to the beach to get a good swim in. Maybe you are camping and have a... Read More little hike down to the beach to go. This tote literally does it all! It's the perfect everyday size, and super reliable, comfortable design. The water repellency is a awesome feature as well. The option's have been endless with this one and I will not give it up!

Great bag!

I was looking for a daily tote bag to carry all the things. As moms, somehow everyone turns to us to carry all their stuff and this bag does it all. When I’m not carrying the families things, this bag serves as a convenient tote for the gym as well as for a day trip to the lake. The well built exterior makes it durable and resistant to tossing it i... Read Moren the truck or onto the ground when out and about. Highly recommend.

September 4, 2023

Amazing products

I love this tote for its versatility. If you are familiar with the Black Hole duffle - this tote has all the same qualities and can be used for almost any urban/suburban/beach adventure. It lives in my car primarily to hold miscellaneous items that are essential for road trips, and it does double duty as a grocery shopping bag. I highly recommend i... Read Moret for its versatility and simplicity.

September 2, 2023

Buy this tote

I have so many totes! This one is the best by leaps and bounds. Can fit so many things. Even drinks with the waterproofing. Shoes, sandals, outfits, laptops, work items. Everything

August 30, 2023

Great Work Bag!

I am a tote bag lover so I had to try this one out. At first, It looks a bit small, but it actually expands pretty big. I am able to fit my purse, lunch bag, and other odds and ends I have. With the black hole material as well, I am not afraid to bring it in the rain. Needless to say, I cannot recommend it enough.

August 28, 2023

I bought this so I'd

I bought this so I'd have a smaller sturdy bag to lug my hockey skates and gloves around on days when I'm not fully kitting up. Works fine!

August 27, 2023

Very versatile!

This might be the best bag I've ever purchased! I use it for my groceries, the gym, the beach - it's the perfect bag. Usually I'm not a fan of big bags but this is by far my favorite.

August 24, 2023

Perfect tote

Yes primarily for groceries. Heavy duty. Perfect

August 23, 2023

Great quality, does not close

Very high quality as expected from Patagonia. I should have read description closer: the bag has no way of closing at the top. So if you're using it as an open tote (beach, trip to grocery/market, etc) it'll work, but I had hoped to use it as a work bag and for that I need it to secure. Bummer! Otherwise very cute bag, but returned it.

August 23, 2023

Really nice bag

This is a really great tote bag. Was kind of on the fence about getting the smaller size, because, like most people, I have a ton of smaller cotton tote bags. It was so much better than I expected! The pictures online don't really communicate that the bottom is much wider than a standard small tote bag that's just a few inches across at t... Read Morehe bottom. This one could easily carry a pie or cake flat. The best grocery tote!

August 22, 2023

Great bag for work

I am loving this bag. I am a teacher and need a good quality bag to caring things back and forth to my classroom. This bag is the perfect size, looks good and is sturdy enough for all my needs.

August 20, 2023

Versatile, durable bag

This is a do-it-all tote. It is made of strong, water-resistant material. It is large and holds a lot. Easy to wash out. Love the lash straps to attach other stuff to the outside. Love the purple color. I have used it for international travel, going to the pool and holding all my stuff for frisbee games.

August 16, 2023

Great Tote

You'll end up carrying way more than you planned with this tote, so beware! I find myself throwing everything but the kitchen sink in it on the way to work: water bottle, lunch, jacket, phone, multiple packing cubes, it fits everything (plus groceries if I stop on the way home!). It is nice having everything in one place, and it performs bette... Read Morer than my rain coat in the rain. 10/10 purchase The only tiny downside is that, since the straps are not padded, I would be afraid to carry this on my shoulder if wearing a more delicate top or a leather jacket. Otherwise, this is a perfect tote!

August 8, 2023

Fits Everything!

Love this bag! I even carry another bag inside this bag - I call it my hauler - plus its water resistant, light and I can find things I throw in.

June 2, 2023

Built Tough

Great back for hauling all towels and beverages! Highly recommend. I bought other sizes for gifts!

May 29, 2023

Excellent hauler

A great haul bag for days on the water and general use. Held 5 towels plus all the stuff a 4 and 6 year old need for skipping some rocks and playing at the shore. Not rigid - it is flexible and packable. Typical black hole durability.

May 1, 2023

Fatal Flaw

Really, really wanted to like this bag. Looks great and all the bombproof Patagonia quality you would expect is there. But the design is seriously lacking. There is very little structure in the bag, which can be forgiven for the sides but it cause the bottom of the bag to absolutely collapse with any amount of weight. You can see this somewhat in t... Read Morehe product photos. Even a book causes the bottom to sag and the rest of the bag stretches out to account for this, giving it a bit of a melting look. Not to mention that the bottom of the bag is PAPER thin. Great for packability but terrible for anything in the bag you hope to protect from bumps and drops. Overall this bag is disappointing and I will be returning it. I don't mean to be so harsh but I truly hope to see better from the design team in the future.

Response from Patagonia
May 11, 2023

Hi Logan! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear about the disapointment with the structure of the bag. Our Black Hole bags are designed to offer incredible packability so that is the main focus when it comes to the design. That said, we greatly appreciate this feedback and we'll share this with our design team. Please note, your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](

Roomy tote bag

Lot of room in tote bag, only 1 inside pocket though.

January 19, 2023


This bag is perfect for work and everything else. I use it every day and LOVE it!

January 13, 2023


At first it looked kind of small but after using it and getting all my gear inside after a surf session this. At is AWESOME and perfect. Very easy to rinse out or even clean. Would definitely recommend this blackhole 25ltr tote

January 5, 2023

As described

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.

January 4, 2023

Appropriate name, Black Hole

LOVE this bag! I am a sucker for bags and this one is probably my favorite. It is so much larger than it looks! Super durable and folds up nicely to keep stored away. THE PERFECT bag

December 22, 2022

Just the right size

I love this tote bag so much. Works great for carrying gear in on an approach or up to the lodge. Made out of recycled materials +++ bonus!!!

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!

Great knitting bag. Large enough

Great knitting bag. Large enough for big projects.

Perfect size for road trips

This is backseat perfect. We have the larger size too, but bought this one to store the essentials we need easy access to. As expected, great quality, happy to have it.

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.

November 22, 2022

Amazing bag!

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!

November 20, 2022

Travel friendly

Love this bag - folds up easily very flat and then expands to a large tote which we took to the beach. Beautiful look!

I own 4 of these black hole totes now and I couldn't recommend them more. They are so durable.

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.

September 20, 2022

Bigger than it looks

This durable tote is amazing. I bought it to use for car camping, but have used it for travel and shopping already.

September 15, 2022

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.

Bag review

This bag is a little nicer than a shopping bag. The materials are nicer. I would value this bag as worth more than $30 but it has the Patagonia logo on it.

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!

August 26, 2022

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.

August 21, 2022

Perfect tote

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]( would work best, please feel free to begin either at any time.

Great bag! :)

Perfect size bag! I have the large one in green that I use for daily trip to the pool. The fabric is strong and easy to keep clean- both sizes would be good in many colors-

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.

When not in service to haul gear, they're fantastic for grocery shopping. Bonus: they look very sharp and after a few months of daily use still look brand new.

July 19, 2022

Great bag

Nice roomy tote for just about anything and everything. I have another tote (different brand) that zips closed but find I am using this one more often now for everyday use as it holds a lot and the clip keeps things secure. Highly recommend!

July 17, 2022

Great for grocery shopping

Now that NJ is plastic bag free and often paper bag free, it's a great shopping bag. Waterproof, durable and semi-rigid so it stands up while loading and easy to carry.

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.

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.

You can put a load of stuff or just a few, and still looks fashionable. I bought a black and will buy the brown. But what is worth buying is the material used. Im glad there are still companies like Patagonia who believes in saving Mother Earth.

So far so good

This bag appears to be durable enough and designed well enough, though I have only used it for grocery shopping once (the intended use).

Good, not great, tote

I am always on the go to sports games. I need a bag to hold seasonal necessities, durable, and waterproof. This bag would be EVERYONEs favorite if it zipped closed and had an additional inner pocket. Every single mom on the team shared this information with me.

Favorite bag!

Best bag Ive found, love the one that is the smaller of the two sizes. Waterproof and dirt proof, great colors, can go over the shoulder, sits flat and open to retrieve items. Cant say enough great things about it. Have 3. Especially love my green and yellow one. And the aqua.

Great carry-all

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).

the everything bag

As a man I hurry out the door scrambling to organize my keys, water bottle, headphones, snack, reusable shopping bags, and extra t shirt (its hot here) maybe a full change of clothes, trail shoes, a water bottle and end up making several trips to the car. NO MORE. I toss it all in this thing and roll out. Every man should have one. a water bottle l...

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.

Perfect Tote

Perfect size for the farmers mkt or when a backpack is too narrow and a suitcase is too much. I just keep this one in the back of my car so its always handy.

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.

June 4, 2021

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!

May 19, 2021

Best Bag Ever!

I use this for everything, work stuff, returns to kohls, box returns to UPS, etc. A LOT and bulky. I love that its waterproof so I know when (not if) I spill something Ill be covered. The teal blue is bright and perfect.

Tote Bag

I, literally, use this bag all day to tote things around the house or at the grocery store. Its perfect in a pop up camper for organizing chaos.

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. Perfect for work during the transition seasons when mornings are chilly and require an extra layer and puffy jacket, by late afternoon it's shorts & a tee. Great for storing the jacket & capilene unt... Read Moreil the sun goes down and temps drop like a rock. Got a second one for the lonely produce from the farmers market.

Keeps all the bits and pieces in one carry-all

Love this bag to throw in stuff for a day at the beach, biking our skiing. Can easily toss in and access helmets, water bottles, googles, gloves, sunscreen, towels, change of clothes, all the gear.

This bag is great so far. I have been using for swim class and as a weekend on the go diaper bag to throw in everything. Seems to hold a lot while at the same time not feeling huge. Also great post swim because is water resistant.

Lightweight & Durable

I love that's this bag is made of mostly recycled materials. It's more roomy inside than expected. Interior zip pocket is essential, but could be a big bigger. Great bag for the cost!

Gym Bag

I purchased this bag to be used as a gym bag. The craftsmanship is great. The materials are great, as they are easy to clean! It is easy to carry. And easy to access my equipment inside .

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. The second bag is my daily shopper go bag. So easy to put all the items for the day in this from a drive/hike with quick change of clothes or layers.

These bags are super tough and sturdy and can carry a heavy load. Fold away flat so theyre easy to pack at the bottom of a small carry on. Weatherproof as well. Ive got three!

Great bag for just about any purpose as other reviewers have noted! Accommodates enough clothing for at least a week plus spare shoes and toiletries, etc. in my experience.

So Useful

We have 4 of these now. Theyre great. They updated the shape a bit recently and it's quite a bit better. Millions of uses for these things, super light, hang and lay flat when empty. Super tough. The bigger ones are wildly useful too.

Waited to purchase this bag because I wanted to read reviews first and then had to decide between this size bag and the other much larger tote. In the end got this size and glad I did.

Durable tote, short straps

I'm a fan of most Black Hole products and this is no exception! I think the tote is a great idea and I can't wait to pull it along camping/ on the river.

Great Gear Tote
