Patagonia Black Hole® Wheeled Duffel Bag 70L

Kinda Large
March 22, 2020


I'm global in my work and nomadic for five years. High mountains to cityscapes and everything in between. The Black Hole 70L is perfect. Classic. Bold, Strong. Subtle. Holds everything I need. I also have the 100L for expeditions. The 70L replaces a Patagonia Freightliner from the 1990's the still goes strong after bazillions of miles, bu... Read Moret is a bit smaller and less waterproof. In short, you can't go wrong with the Black Hole.

This 70L green bag went to Germany with me in January, and it was perfect for the job. I stayed there for six weeks and brought enough clothing to necessitate several loads of laundry. 1.) The handles and straps are easy to use. The two main handles clip together (rather than velcro) which I found pleasing and clean-feeling. 2.) It really DOES NOT ... Read MoreFALL OVER. Guys, this is a game-changer. I have had so many bags topple when I've tried to keep them upright, but this one has a sturdy base. 3.) The wheels were a great size for uneven, cobbled streets. Standard suitcases can be nice for smooth airport sidewalks, but when it comes to life outside the airport, bigger wheels are nice. 4.) The rain didn't make it inside. Germany is rainy this time of year, and Nashville rained to greet me on my return to the USA, and not once did the items inside the bag get wet. 5.) The green color felt calming, didn't feel like a loud advertisement, and was also easy to spot in the airport. 6.) The compression straps inside really helped me smush together all my clothing and souvenirs so I cold zip up for the trip home. 7.) It was a good size for me. It did well on the few train rides. Also, somehow, this bag, though only 70L, weighed exactly 23kg on my return flight. Stuff packed in nicely! 8.) The handle did not quite feel long enough to be used in conjunction with my under-the-seat roller carry-on. It is a shorter roller bag with a strap on the back so it can slide onto the handle of a bigger bag and make transport easier. All in all, great bag. I will probably look into buying a bigger one for bulkier trips.

Black Hole Bags

I was able to pack 2 weeks of clothing, shoes and toiletries in my 70L for an international trip. I didn’t have to worry about being over weight on my return flight after stuffing souvenirs in my bag. It was easy to maneuver as well

This is my only less than 5 star review

Am a longtime---30 year--customer. I love everything you make for its' practicality and style. Sadly, this bag came up short. Purchased the beautiful black 70L black hole for travel. What surprised me is the opening of the bag, which is smaller than the bag, thus limiting how much one can put inside. When the bag is fully opened, one cannot se... Read Moree completely inside because of the design. Perhaps the designer was trying to be create a more stylish look? It will be fabulous AND stylish with a larger opening. Wish I would have purchased the 100L. Needed a bag right away for a trip otherwise I would return the 70L for the 100L. Please advise. Otherwise, I am Patagonia's biggest fan, seriously. Please help me solve this problem. I love you.

Perfect Size for short and long trips

I have a 90L duffel (without wheels) and I find it's very easy to overload and can get heavy. I love the 90L duffel, however the 70L with wheels is my go to bag. It's the perfect size for long and short trips and the standup feature is very handy. I would highly recommend this bag!!! Quality matters and this duffel is a quality product.

This was a Christmas gift for my son. He loves it. It is very well made. We look forward to years of travel with it.

Very nice piece of luggage.

Needed to pack several varied items and this worked great.

Great Bag

Just started using it and was impressed with how much it can hold!

Black Hole Wheeled Duffel, 70L

This is my second Black Hole Wheeled Duffel. I bought the 100L Black Hole Wheeled Duffel several months ago. It is an excellent piece of luggage for my way of packing, but a little large for some of my travels. Hence, the second Black Hole Wheeled Duffel, 70L. One or the other is always the right size. They are very durable and easy to pack. I just... Read More throw everything in and use the tie down straps to hold the contents tightly in place. Voila!

Material is so solid, colors are great, and rolls like the pillsbury doughboy. No complaints!

Great bag. Small enough to keep you under weight limits for checked bags and big enough to fit a weeks worth of clothing for my two toddlers and I. For us that was max capacity.

The simple design swallows a loads of gear, including odd sized items (packs, ropes, ice tools, tents, etc.). The wheels make them easy to move around. Only problem I've had was with the largest...

Best rolling duffel...period.

Rugged high quality construction. Check. Keeps elements at bay. Check. Wheels run quietly after running over potholes, snow, sand, cobblestones, mud, puddles, falling off mule... Check, check, and check.

Perfect size bag

I work on yachts and am nomadic, so I need a soft bag that I can carry my life in. It doesn’t collapse all the way to become flat, but it does stand upright without falling over which is awesome. The 90L without wheels was much too big for me (I’m 5’1 and petite) and I either hurt my back or needed a cart. Patagonia let me trade in my bag to credit... Read More towards this 70L with wheels and it is enough to hold everything important and I can travel with ease. It’s beautiful too. I also love this company for having such amazing customer service.

Perfect size

Haven’t used them yet but my brother in law has two of the hundred liter and is not easy on gear. He has had them for many years with no failures. This includes dozens of flights and off road trips. Excited about this product!

rockin' roller bag!

The size, construction, wheels and zipper pocket have been well designed for ease of use. Packing this bag for longer trips via air travel allows plenty of room for bulky gear that can be strapped in tight. Highly recommend!

Wheeled duffle

We love our Black Hole duffles in all sizes. They have been around the world and held up fabulously. Adding the wheels is great for this size which can take us on a ten day tour or space for 4 people to pack one bag for a weekend!

My favorite bag!

The duffel is SO well made. I used it this past weekend for a NSP training event and every detail has been thought through. I can tell that it is going to handle those rough baggage handlers much better that the suitcase I just threw in the garbage.

Love my Black Hole luggage

Amazing quality, as expected, and very functional and stylish. Love it.

A roomy, tough, good-looking piece

A roomy, tough, good-looking piece of luggage--and the biggest that'll fit into a Miata's trunk.

Proud to use a Patagonia bag

I was in need of a new suitcase larger than a carry on. I chose a Patagonia bag because of the company's stand on environmental issues and the fact that they are a Certified B Corp. And I have been thrilled with the bag itself...roomy enough to pack my rolled up yoga mat and anything else I could possibly need for any trip! Plus, the purple co...

Bomber Rolling Duffel!

I already own the massive 110 Liter version. Needed this for the wife so she can actually lift it when it’s full.

Super stoked on this bag,

Super stoked on this bag, durable and big enough for everything I need. But not too big that it’s a hassle

wheeled duffel

I like everything about it except the weight. Perhaps I'm just weaker than I thought but it does seem heavy.

70L black hole

Well designed straps keep everything in place. Great wheels too.
