Kinda Large
September 8, 2020

Love this bag!

Got this as a present as I have not been subtle about wanting one of these bags. Used it for a long weekend away. It was spacious. Love the top and how it opens. Havent used the straps to carry it yet but looking forward to that.

Great Duffle

I use this duffel to keep all my search and rescue gear, the bag is light durable and water proof. Its the best duffle i have ever had.

Superb bag and an even better gift

I bought two of these bags as gifts for my college age kids. They absolutely love them! Spacious, well crafted and well designed. I owned an earlier version of this bag, I believe it was called the "Wet/Dry Bag" because it had sections for wet clothes and dry. That bag is now 20 years old and still looks new! I feel like I'm giving m... Read Morey kids a future heirloom.

These are bomber

I love my black hole bags. This is the 4th one I purchased and they work perfectly for all of my travel needs, whether it's trip on the plane or a days worth of gear in the back of my car.

Great all around bag

Super durable finish. Stays looking great. Zipper is easy to run and doesnt get caught. Plenty of space for the 70 and just the right size for a few days away.

Bigger than expected

This bag is very well made as I would have expected. A little larger than I anticipated but I love it. It fits a weeks worth of clothes and cold weather gear with plenty of room to spare.

Favorite bag

Best bag for travel and hauling gear. I can't seem to have enough of these. Makes my life easy to have a black hole for each activity.. keeps everything organized and together. Most useful thing I own! They are well made. I had something spill in the bag the other week and the liquid did not leak out of the bag. Super easy to clean. Durable an... Read Mored fashionable. Everyone always compliments the black hole bags. The straps are very useful to put on back and carry - I don't think getting the wheeled version is necessary.

Great for hauling gear for any discipline

I predominantly use this as my larger gear hauler for motocross / dirt bike gear (helmet, boots, goggles, protective gear, clothing), and it's held up really well. I love the multiple strap options, that it can collapse and fold up when not in use, and the durability of the pack. I've contemplated running over it with my bike to see if th...

These are the best bags for hauling gear

I have one of the original black hole duffles that I still use because it has held up so well. And this new one seems as sturdy, I like that it has gone back to the more squared off dimensions while greatly improving the pack straps and other strap features. This is a great size for carrying climbing and other heavier gear. And that it is made out ... Read Moreof recycled material can’t be beat.

My grandsons were very suprised and very very pleased. Oldest grandson has his backpack for three years it still looks great. Very pleased with the products we have purchased from you.

Fits everything for anywhere

The perfect size bag for your next adventure! Can be used as a duffel or backpack! And the plum color is fantastic. Thanks for an amazing product!

a big hit at Christmas

I bought 2 of these -one for each of my sons, 18 and 19.They were immediately impressed with the unexpected gifts and will use them to travel abroad this summer and shuttle back and forth to college. Love the backpack option.

Travel Bag

The 70 L is great for long trips. It holds everything I need for a 5-7 day trip. The material keeps The rain from getting wet. I also have the 50 L. Best duffel I’ve ever owned.

Black Hole of My Dreams

This bag is perfect for travel. I spill things pretty often and I appreciate how easy to clean the bag is, as well as how much it holds. Great for all types of travel - I've been able to keep a months worth of clothing in this duffel.

It is a great bag. I also own a 60L. Great bag for short trips to the snow or any where. Thank you for the great products you produce.

Great boat bag, lots of room. Backpack straps are comfortable.

Great Duffel. Super sturdy and a wide range of use from a daily catch all for all my biking gear and spare clothes to airplane travel for extended trips. Paired with the smallest Black Hole bag for my travel kit it is awesome!

BH Duffel 70L

Not new to these bags, and am in fact creating a collection of all the sizes. Durable and easily 'handle-able" when full. This one will actually be rolling south for a trip into Argentina...and then who knows.

Best Bag Ever!

this is my absolute favorite duffel! Super easy to transport, fits ton of stuff, durable, waterproof and lightweight!

November 26, 2019

Great bag!!

Wanted one of these for a long time! Totally held up to my expectations! Good for both backcountry and just regular travel.

November 23, 2019

Amazing Bag

I have three of these bags and have been more than happy with every one of them!

November 22, 2019

Best duffel I've had

Toughest and best bag I've ever owned. It's been in plane holds, in torrential rain and deserts. Best all round bag I've owned. Taking it to Greenland and I've no doubt it will hold up.

Great shell

Super light weight, comfortable and practical. Love the stretchy material.

November 19, 2019

Best bag I own

This bag has been lugged all over the world from the desert to snowy alpine locations and it has proved itself as true workhorse. The water resistant material and backpack straps truly but this bag on another level. I will continue to use this bag as my main workhorse for many years.

November 18, 2019


this is great, super. used for a trip to uzbekistan. but, hard to carry when full, heavy.

November 13, 2019

Great bag!

I live in southeast Alaska where it rains almost everyday! The bag sat in a boat for over 2 hours and I was so shocked to find everything dry inside! It’s durable it’s a great bag for anything!

Great duffel with 1 limitation

Received my 70L duffle recently and it is now getting the treatment with some rough overseas travel in Africa. The construction is sturdy; the zipper very good; the ease of converting to backpack mode is excellent. My only suggestion for improvement is related to security. The zipper is not designed to accept an approved lock in the closed position... Read More. More concerning is an internal pocket that can easily be accessed from the outside. This is not lockable, and an internal zipper of the same pocket gives prying hands full access to the main compartment. Other than this concern, I am quite happy with this product.

November 6, 2019

I like that the changes have been changed up

I think these are the perfect bags for long weekends or really up to a week. I like that the sizes were changed up a big, so I can have the full array!

Great Bags

These duffels are solid. Everything you need and nothing you don’t. Our old 90L bag was stolen along with all of our clothing and gear a few weeks back. This bag served as a nice replacement and the 70L is a good size for long weeks on the road.

November 4, 2019

Great Bag

I used my 70L for a trip to Maine this fall. It held the many clothes and gear I couldn’t live without. I’m very happy with the bag and look forward to using it again

I like the bag and will use it to carry my Ski Patrol stuff to the hill for my shifts. No shifts yet, I have another Blackhole Bag that I use a lot.

Bags for Safari

Bought two bags for a 2-week safari in Kenya and Tanzania. Probably could have gone down a size, but this allowed for some extra room for other items. No issues with airplane cargo hold, safari vehicle stuffing, etc... Still look new. About to buy the 55l for smaller needs. Also love the recycled content.

October 27, 2019

great bag, rugged

I own one of the very first black hole duffels (which is still my favorite bag - so light and roomy) but bought this as I needed another travel bag. I suspect it will last me forever.

Packs small, unfold and it’s just the right size duffel/backpack for traveling.

Best bag ever?

I wanted a bag I could use for long trips and didn't have wheels. The bag is huge! This bag is so durable. It was processed through 4 airports. Very important to take the shoulder straps off prior to checking it so they don't get broken or lost. The bag still looks brand new. My lady and I were able to both use it over a 4 day long weeken...

Thank you Patagonia for quality products!

October 15, 2019

Lots of capacity

Love that this holds so much and that it has the option to use as a backpack. It’s a little too big as a backpack when full. I wish the straps had more padding and there was a hip belt to shift the weight. But otherwise it’s a solid duffel - love that it collapses to a small pouch.

October 9, 2019

Perfect Travel Bag

Great for long weekends, traveling aboard, and/or camping trips. It’s versatile, sharp looking, functional, easy to travel with, and not to mention, the bag that’s the envy of all of your friends!

Amazing duffel bags

I have had a smaller Black Hole Duffel for years and use it constantly. I needed a larger one for a more extended vacation and I expect it to be just as great. These are well made, extremely resistant to wear and weather, and are very convenient. I would highly recommend these bags.

Great duffel, but lacks security

I'm very satisfied with my new duffel, except for one design flaw. You cannot secure the contents of the bag with TSA approved locks. The problem isn't with the large access flap on the top (which can be locked), it is with the small pocket on the side. There's an external zipper and an internal zipper, and neither one can be locked ... Read Morein any way. So if you lock the top access flap, a potential thief still has access to everything in the duffel by simply unzipping the side pocket, reaching in, and unzipping the inside zipper. Yes, I know that all duffels are vulnerable to knife attack and can't ever be fully secure, but there is no good reason why simple measures (like rings sewn into the bag to which the side zipper and/or internal zipper can be locked) can't be taken to deter some thieves. Please note that the many of the questions in the review don't apply to duffels, so I left them blank.

Great duffel and colors

This duffel has great workmanship and color combination but is bigger than what I need so I have returned it

Outstanding bag! I took it

Outstanding bag! I took it on a 10 day trip and had room for plenty of optional clothes/gear with lots of extra room still available.

We have multiples of this bag now and love them! This bad is pretty large but the quality of the bag wasn’t sacrificed at all!

Awesome product. Love the attached daisy chain: easy strapping to the roof rack for road tripping!

It's big. And perfect.

As the owner of a 60L Black Hole Duffel that was purchased a few years back, my partner and I needed to buy another so we'd both have bags for weekend camping and cabin trips. When I've been able to fill the 60L in the past, I still haven't been able to fill the 70L. Love the added backpack straps for when this bag is used for weeklo...

Awesome Gear Bag

I'm a ski patroller during the winter and a firefighter during the summer, and this bag goes everywhere with me. It can carry everything I need, from my ski gear in the winter, to my fire gear during the summer. I have 2 of these bags in the 70L and the 60L, and both perform exactly as expected. If you're looking for a catchall bag that c... Read Morean carry a week's worth of clothes, your ski gear, your fishing gear, cycling gear, or any outdoor trip imaginable, this is the bag for it.

Bomber bag

So far so good...just finishing up a 3-week plus Alaskan adventure using commercial airlines, floatplanes, pickups and remote cabins. Held all my gear (any bigger and I couldn’t lift it). Love the purple color-stands out in the airport. Like the inside cinch down straps and handles on each end of the bag to boost it up into the bush plane.

So yeah, as a Guide, I spend about 200 days a year out there and my 11 year old Daughter spends about 80 out there with me. We have three of these bags. The marketing narrative reads, "highly weather-resistant." Nope. Which, is a bummer. We absolutely support Patagonia. We are dedicated to the Philosophy of the company and Chouinard perso...

This one, actually three (we have three sizes), didn't leave up to "the dream." Again, bummer.

Thank you for your feedback on the Black Hole Duffel and sorry to hear that it's not the bag that you were looking for. The Black Hole line is water-resistant but it is not waterproof so water will eventually soak through the bag. For truly waterproof protection for your gear, we recommend checking out our [Stromfront line](
