We appreciate your feedback on the features like the handles and straps. We wanted to note that you might not miss the 5L due to our design team using a different volume testing method starting a few years ago, which we found to be more accurate.

Black Hole Carry-on roller bag
It would have been great if Patagonia provided a nice luggage tag for such an expensive item. Bag tags were provided on other Patagonia luggage I purchased in the past.
Hi John, thank you for your feedback regarding our Black Hole Wheeled Duffel. We appreciate your support and are sorry to hear about your disappointment with the lack of a luggage tag included with this item. At Patagonia, we strive to provide high-quality products that meet the expectations of our customers. We understand that a luggage tag is an essential accessory for travel, and we apologize for any inconvenience caused by its absence. We constantly evaluate and improve our products based on customer feedback, and your comments will certainly be taken into consideration. We will make sure to review the packaging and accessories included with our Black Hole Wheeled Duffel to enhance the overall customer experience.
40L Carry-On Wheeled Duffel was a miss
Patagonia products are usually top notch, but they missed the mark with this one. I have the black hole 25L & 32L back pack and feel that I can fit more in each bag. This is not the carry-on for you if you want to pack a pair of work shoes, running shoes, work outfit and workout gear plus sleep stuff, toiletries, hair products, etc. Thats not...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review! We are also incredibly sorry to hear about the sizing and room issues you've encountered with this duffel. Please know that you are more than welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) your item as we want you to be completely satisfied with all of your Patagonia purchases. In the meantime, please rest assured that we will be passing this feedback along to our Product Design Team.
Lacks of Shoulder straps
I was expecting shoulder straps on a 40 L duffel type style. My black hole 55 which is significantly bigger has shoulder straps, but this one doesn't.
Thank you so much for writing this review Juan! Sadly, none of our Black Hole Wheeled Duffels have shoulder straps at the moment. If you are looking for a duffel with shoulder straps, we would recommend taking a look at our [Black Hole Duffel 40L](https://www.patagonia.com/product/black-hole-duffel-bag-40-liters/49338.html?dwvar_49338_color=PEPL&cgid=luggage-black-hole-bags).

I was hesitant to go with the bright yellow fabric and would have chosen something darker had it been available. I knew if it were stored below the aeroplane it would become scuffed up from the dirty conveyor belts - and yep that is what happened. However this made me realized just how dirty my darker suitcases must actually be. The scuffs came ou... Read Moret with some 409 degreaser spray, but it took some rubbing. The performance of the bag is great, the hardware and compartments are all of high quality and have a very sturdy feel to it.

We're glad to hear the bag is working well for you, but sorry that the fabric is showing the marks.

Shiny yellow, Handle needs Improvement
I bought the 40L wheeled duffel in Shiny Yellow. Love the color. It holds a lot with packing cubes. The extension handle is too short though for comfortably wheeling it through the airport. I am only 5 foot 7 and its too short for me. I compared it with my son's and husband's carry ons and the handle is indeed shorter. Not sure what that ... Read Moreis about. The internal packets on the lid flap are kinda useless too as if you put stuff in there it is hard to zip the bag. Love the material and color and sturdiness though.

Here we go again!
Another great example of Patagonia making changes to a product that makes it ostensibly worse. There are a myriad of improvements that could be done to this product in all sizes. I have owned four. But Patagonia doesn't listen to customers anymore. Instead of adding a luggage tag or lockable zippers or a better handle, Patagonia decided to mak... Read Moree the bag shorter and wider. I assume this is to make it fit better into overhead compartments which was rarely an issue. Volume doesn't seem to have changed. However, this process also caused the handle to now be inches shorter. In the case of my old 40l roller by about 3". Coupled with the bag being wider, one constantly hits the heel on their trailing foot now. I am 5"11 and thought my 5"6 girlfriend would be better off and gave it to her instead of burning it in an angry bonfire. Unfortunately it is equally bad for her. She's constantly hitting her foot, causing her shoe and sock to come off and the back to flip over. You could try and hold the handle on the side and hold the bag next to you but that's a bit of a workout, especially in big airports like Denver. We are now selling it on Craigslist since she has vowed to never use it again also.
Hi Matt, we're so sorry to hear that the Black Hole Wheeled Duffel isn't working out for you and your girlfriend. We always want you to feel comfortable and confident with your gear. Since the duffel isn't meeting your expectations, you're welcome to begin a [return or complimentary exchange](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html) at your earliest convenience.
(Almost) perfect carryon
I used this on a recent airplane trip, going from one east coast city to another. I packed for three days for both myself and my young child. Forecast said warm and dry.

I was a little leery spending this much for a carry on bag without the benefit of test driving in person but I couldn't find the wheeled duffle anywhere near me. I have to say that I LOVE IT! One of the issues I have with traditional roller bags is they tend to fall forward and aren't grounded. This bag is solid and grounded with no threa... Read Moret of tipping. Also, it wheels super smoothly and is agile. I was worried going from a 4 roller to a 2 roller bag but despite not having quite the dexterity in maneuverability, the bag makes up for it with a smooth, easy flow ride.

I've only used it for one trip so far but I think I am going to LOVE IT!!
Would definitely recommend!
My first ever rolling bag and I like it after two weeks with flights, multiple train rides, and walking the streets from station to hotel.

I am an over-packer and wanted a flexible carry-on bag. With compression bags, I can almost make it a week. I also have the 70L rolling duffle and use it when I am traveling for 7 days plus.

Would like the 45L on wheels back.
I'll start by saying I love Patagonia. The quality is always the best. Although this is a nice travel bag, it is way too expensive and too small. I ordered 2 different wheeled bags for my husband's birthday trying to find the right one for a travel carry on. I have had the 45L size that Patagonia made years ago, and when I ordered the 40 ...

Also, I could not believe the price of the bag for how small it is. The price had gone up within a few months of my 2 different orders, and the bag got smaller. Patagonia bring back the 45L on wheels.
Travel Case with Wheels
This purchase was A duffel with wheels. Great product but small for my trip. 70 L too big for my trip; 40 L too small. Only rating for my trip to Patagonia. Need a wheeled duffel between the 40 & 70 L. Too big a gap. I think there is a 50 or 55 L but it is not wheeled. Too heavy to carry.
Perfect for Carry-on Duffel
I have been using the Black Hole roller duffel since it first became available. It is the perfect size to use with packing cubes and compression bags (down clothing).

Its overpriced. A little heavy, and needs ability to be more like a duffle that you can sling around the shoulders quickly. That would be awesome. Other than that, its great.
Hey Joshua, thank you for the review. Our prices are a culmination of many different aspects of our company. Fair wages and quality materials are the name of the game when attempting to create a product that will last a really long time. The wheeled versions of our Black Hole Duffels will be slightly heavier than those without. If you think you could part with the wheels, we recommend checking out the [Black Hole Duffel Bag 40L](https://www.patagonia.com/product/black-hole-duffel-bag-40-liters/49338.html?dwvar_49338_color=BLK&cgid=root) as an alternative.
Great purchase, even better customer service
I have two 100L duffle bags and was looking to expand to one with wheels. I got the 40L and it was a little too small for what I needed. Its great for a carry on size! Customer service was AMAZING and so fast! I called the number and immediately spoke with a human. No robots! She helped me return my bag and order the 70L. Highly recommend!
Truly is a Black Hole Bag!
This bag is now my new favorite! We used it for family travel to Costa Rica and Panama over a 2.5 week period.

This is hands down the best carry on roller. Ive had it now for 4 years and its still going strong. Its super durable, I normally carry it on but there are times Ive checked it too.

Its an amazing bag. Its pretty spacious if you pack efficiently, but recently I was on a European trip for work for 3 weeks and it was too small. It was early spring so I still needed winter stuff.

Decent materials, design flaws

Most bags of this type have overlapping lock holes so you can easily slip a luggage lock on. Not this one! Best you can do is slip a lock through each zipper tab, which is much less secure. Second, and much worse, the main zipper doesn't go around the edge of the bag, but is a few inches in from the edge, meaning that there is a large overhang on three sides when the bag's open. That results in having to take all my stuff out of the bag to get at anything packed along the sides. This sort of negates the whole convenience of having a top-open design like this, which should be easy access to the contents of the bag without disrupting all the other stuff. Swing and a miss on this one.
Hi Chris! Thank you for writing us a review. We're really sorry to hear about some of the disappointments with the bag's design.

Excellent carry on
This 40L wheelie is great as a carry-on. It's functional, sturdy, and easy to use. The downsides are that it's a bit heavy (trade off for sturdiness) and the interior is dark. I prefer a lighter interior which helps with visibility. I feel that would be an easy change in future iterations.
Lots of room
For a long weekend in Canada, the 40L was more than I needed. I could have put in a third pair of pants with no problem! It wheeled through 4 airports with ease. I do worry a bit about the handle as it seems a little flimsy: not what I expected from Patagonia.

The Blackhole wheeled duffle bag 40L is a great product. I am very happy with it. I purchased the bag for both business and vacation travel.

Don't waste your money
I used this travel bag for less than a year when a wheel broke off after a flight. Unfortunately when I sent the product into patagonia in for repairs they sent it back saying it was unrepairable... Seriously you can't replace a wheel? AND why sell a product that doesn't hold up to airline travel...UGH
We're sorry to hear that you experienced some wheel troubles with your bag. Our repairs team cannot repair structural damage to luggage, so that could be why they sent it back.

Durable, Sleek and Travels Well.
It's a simple product that works very well. Mine's been on planes, trains and automobiles and looks as new as the day it arrived. It works as a carry-on or checked bag. It's durable, easy to spot and holds a good amount of gear without the seduction of overloading. Worth every penny.

Performed well on multi-country trip
We purchased this rolling duffel because of growing frustration with our hard-shell spinner; the wheel kept locking and the suitcase and attached laptop bag would topple over. I wanted to try something with a bit more flexibility and having had very good experiences with our Patagonia clothing, I was keen to try out the travel gear. I was fortunate... Read More to find the 40L Black Hole rolling duffel in Birch White (which is what is shown in the demonstration video on the website). Pros: 1) Durability - after 10 days of travel through three southeast Asian countries with multiple flights and baggage transfers, there were several scuff marks but those were easily erased (mostly) with a wet wipe. 2) Sufficient space - I made use of packing cubes for the first time and I would highly recommend this since there are no section dividers inside the duffel. I am a medium height woman and was able to take 2 pairs of shoes, 3 pairs of trousers and a skirt, 6 blouses/shirts, underwear, pajamas, ample bag of toiletries/medications, bag of electronic cables and adapters, travel umbrella, notebooks, and two large gift boxes of chocolates. 3) Looks great - the light color looks stylish while the material looks tough; it was easy to spot amidst everyone's dark colored suitcases. 4) Fully packed laptop backpack balances on the top of the duffel against the extendable handle when the duffel is full i.e., no toppling over. Cons: 1) Tilts when held vertically by the fabric handle - the main inconvenience is walking down the airplane aisle, as it tends to hit the seat armrests. However, if you hold the duffel by the cloth handle and by the top of the extendable plastic rolling handle (i.e., using both hands), it can be held straight, or if you just hold it by the side handle and aim it forward but that is a little harder to control if it is heavy. This is not a problem if you have both hands free but if I were wrangling a two year old at the time, it would have been very challenging. 2) When pulling it behind and to the right of me I knocked it with my right foot a few times but that may just be my gait. Bonus tip: I replaced my old mini-padlock-style travel locks with combination travel locks that work with a steel cable and that was easy to fit through the little zipper holes. I also purchased a steel cable to lock the bag to the hotel fixtures; probably a bit of overkill but always happy to make my bag a little less easy to steal than the next one.
40L Bag is Great
I love this bag! I have flown from AK to the East coast twice at this point and a few other smaller trips and this bag is durable.

I was greatly impressed by this bag that easily carried my work clothes (with extra blazer) and work out clothes for a 3 day, 2 night work trip. I had no problems carrying the bag on and it handed trips through the airport and on shared rides like a champ. VERY HAPPY with the bag that aligns with my needs and my values.
Beautiful, effective, and expensive
I love the Black Hole bag, but only wish I had paid a little less for it. However, if it lasts me for years and years, it will have been worth it. Only time will tell if it is actually a 3-star bag or a 5-star bag. For now, it gets 4. It appears rugged, holds a goodly amount of stuff, and rolls smoothly. Yay!
