Wheeled 45L

Im not sure who I can contact, as I couldnt find an email. Making a request to bring this 45L wheeled back.

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. If you have any questions, please reach out to our [Customer Service]( team. In addition, if you're in the US, we encourage you to check out our gently used bags from our Worn Wear partners. Thanks for your review, Nicole!

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.

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...

Works like it should

Great build, tough handle and wheels. Fits in the overhead compartment easily

August 26, 2023

They are nice enough, but

They are nice enough, but they are both too heavy when empty, so you can imagine how much heavier they are when you put your necessities in them. I don’t like the hassle of returning items I buy, but would have preferred lighter bags. Thank you

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.

This bag will be perfect for my needs!

Says what it does and does what is says.

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.

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. Took it to Europe for 2 weeks and it worked great as far as sizing. Love you Patagonia!

August 16, 2023

Perfect for international travel

I took this bag over the summer to Europe and South East Asia, and it held up perfectly! I love that it is water resistant as well! There is plenty of room for 2 weeks of clothes.

Right size carryon

Perfect for traveling light

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.

(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.

Best travel bag I own

Hands down the best bag I have traveled with. Size is perfict for 5-7 days to a warm location and 4-5 for cold. You will not be disappointed with this bag.

Perfect Size for Weekend Travel

Love this black hole duffel for weekend travel. The material is super durable and it's plenty big enough for 3 days worth of clothing. The extra pockets for things like cords, socks, etc. are also a huge plus. Highly recommend.

Best Carry on Roller ever

Simply put I want one for every family member. Light weight and perfect for travel.

I have so many of the Black Hole bags. They are not too sport casual or too formal.

Great carry on sized bag

I travel exclusively carry on and have been using the regular 40L Patagonia Black Hole Duffel for a while now but was ready to move to something with wheels to save my back a little.

Light weight go-to, and durable

This is really nice feel when going through the airport, the wheels are smooth, I packed 3 weeks worth of clothing and 4 large packing cubes. This looks stylish as well. I want to try out their other black hole products! Love you guys!

January 6, 2023


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 don't feel like I'm pulling or pushing the bag. It glides along with ease. And since I use packing cubes, the one compartment suits my needs. I've only used it for one trip so far but I think I am going to LOVE IT!!

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.

Best Travel bag ever!

This is the perfect bag when you travel. It's really all you need when you go away for a weekend or a week. And it's the perfect bag for taking a plane to your destination because it fits in overhead easily.

December 11, 2022

Light and considered carry on size

I cannot say enough good things about this bag! I went and bought the other two roller sizes because I love it so much! You will not regret it. Holds a ton of stuff.

40L rolling Duffel

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 ... Read MoreI thought I was ordering the same bag. The 40 is just a tad smaller than the 45, however it makes a big difference when traveling for a few nights. 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).

I travel quite a bit for work and shunned roller bags for a long time. Finally, my back was feeling the pain of doing the double backpack through cities and airports (front and back).

Ive used the Black Hole

Ive used the Black Hole carry on for 2 trips. It is very well named. It holds everything needed for a weekend trip whitewater rafting and another week of airline travel to attend a funeral. My clothes are protected.

Perfectly Good for Work or Fishing Trips Trip

The bag fits in on a business trip or strapped to the top of my SUV. The materials are easily cleaned and looks great. Packed for a week and still had room to spare.

My go to travel bag.

At 40 liters, you can get it on-board the upper bins of any commercial aircraft. I've dragged it down streets, on and off curbs, in and out of cars, busses and trains for years and it's built like a tank. The roomy inside lid pockets are brilliant.

October 2, 2022

Nice design

The wheeled duffle is nicely made with thoughtful features. Additional outside pocket for a laptop or iPad would be perfect.

about to use on a trip

was looking for a carry on bag to get through a 10 day trip. Hoping this will manage. It's nice and lightweight.

September 26, 2022


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.

If you think you could part with the wheels, we recommend checking out the [Black Hole Duffel Bag 40L]( as an alternative.

Well constructed

Its a very nice sturdy looking bag. I bought it mainly because of the repair program, the fact that Patagonia is a B Corp and uses recycled materials. Looks great too!

Elegant Duffel

This is one well built travel luggage. I have purchased the large one and git the little carry on now, just to realize that I want all the sizes for this piece. LOVE IT!!!

It looks tiny but nice and light for lifting overhead in a plane....we'll see how much I can fit in.

Fine but pls stop with the in-your-face logo already!

This bag is fine. I bought it because of Patagonia's sustainability practices and I expect it to be sturdy. I *hate* that it blares out "Patagonia" in huge letters. Just yuck. Thinking about covering that part up with duct tape.

Best travel carry on roller

This is by far the highest quality roller carry bag on the market. Works great for 3-4 day trips for work. Airline friendly and receives many compliments.

August 15, 2022

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.

Love my black hole wheeled duffel!

Bought three of these black hole duffels one for each of us. Love that if they get wet it won't ruin anything. Wish I had these when I was stuck in the rain. The zipper is away from the flap so it wont get stuck. I would highly recommend to a friend.

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

I own a lot of Patagonia gear, and with this one exception, it's always the best of its kind. But this bag isn't great. I'm writing from Turkey, after traveling through 5 countries with this thing. The materials are good, and the construction seems sturdy enough. Two problems have become clear. One, there is no good way to lock the z... Read Moreippers. 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.

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.

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. If they haven't credited you already, please reach out to our [Customer Service Team]( so we can get you taken care of.

Simple, minimal, high quality carry on travel suitcase!

Durable, attractive, multipurpose luggage. Suitcase duffels tend to be heavy but this one manages to be quite light !

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.

A Better Carry On Wheelie.

This Black Hole wheeled bag is wonderful. It may be the smallest size wheelie, but there is an abundance of room inside this traveler. I bought a Black Hole Mini MLC thinking I would need more storage space, but I probably never will. This bag is slightly blocky, but super functional. The inside is thoughtfully laid out and the outside seems rugg... Read Moreed enough for any airline brutality. Im super stoked to travel with my new Black Hole wheelie bag. Big Thanks!

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. It has plenty of storage for me on a 2 week trip (I do pack light), the sliding handle is stable, the wheels are durable and I have no bad things to say about this bag. I do wish it came in a size in between 40L and 70L... Read More, but maybe I'm just being picky. I've wheeled this thing around DC and Seattle and it did great. It withstands airport baggage practices well, only one little scuff from a trip but the materials are so durable it is hardly noticeable.

Perfect Quick Hitter!

A great bag for those quick hitter trips. Easily swallows a few days worth of clothes and can be internally cinched down to compress loads if you get a little carried away packing. Shrugged off a little light drizzle and snowflakes while running from hotel to hotel and slides right in to overhead compartments. My only complaint is that I like it to... Read Moreo much! Now I have to add the 70l for those times when winter layers eat up space or you're extending the trip beyond a few days. I suppose it's only a matter of time before the 100l joins the ranks as well...

Great 2-3 day travel carry-on!

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.

Wheeled Duffel for air travel

Works excellent for travel. Key feature on recent flight was the ability to take something out and compress the top to allow to fit in the smaller overheads. Great product.

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!

Birthday gift for me. Replaced

Birthday gift for me. Replaced 14 yr old Briggs & Riley which was a great bag but feels like a 747 compared to this stealth fighter bag. Brilliant work again on lightweight, maneuverable & holds all my crap AND it’s flat out beautiful.

Finally a wheelie carry on

I like duffels on principle, and equally important, I like minimalist. But sometimes you gotta have a carry on wheelie because you have too far to walk and are also carrying a backpack. I can bring this 40L wheelie and a small backpack on a plane with enough stuff for two weeks. Yay

Best Duffle out there

This is the best duffle out there! So much space, light weight and durable. Would love it if this had straps to convert to a backpack when rolling isn't preferred though.

Black Hole is Right

I LOVE my black hole rolling duffle! I was shocked by how much I could fit in, and that it's still within carry-on regulations. The wheels roll smoothly, and the sleek outer material is really durable!

I have used the black-hole wheeled carry-on since 2016. My travels are extensive as a retired airline guy. Every time I pack up this bag, I am still in awe of it’s interior size.

Have been through five or six travel bags from all the major out door companies and at last ordered the 40 Liter roller duffle that looked like it would fit in commuter plane overhead!

Perfect travel bag

I bought this bag for work trips--I wanted something that could carry a suit, or could fit enough stuff for a week if you really crammed it, would meet the airline carry-on requirements, and had wheels. After traveling with a backpack for years, this bag really is a revolution in my travel. It easily fits enough stuff for a work trip, with a separa... Read Morete compartment that could be a suit compartment, or else a compartment for your laptop and toiletries. It is light, fits easily into overhead bins even of small aircraft, and roomy enough to hold everything I need. I'm sure I will be using it for years to come. The only thing I wish is that it had a shoulder strap or stowable backpack straps for carrying around town if you wanted to. Thanks Patagonia!
