    Defies physics.

    Tell your astrophysicist and sci-fi friends that Patagonia found out what's in a black hole, or at least the Black Hole 60L Duffel Bag: your climbing, hiking, and traveling gear from your last five-day trip. Inspired by rugged-yet-light alpine packs, the Black Hole features a burly ripstop fabric filmed in a TPU laminate and coated with DWR for the ultimate in outdoors protection. The padded base protects your gear throughout the trip, and Patagonia padded the removable shoulder strap and removable backpack straps for comfort. Internal organizers and zippered mesh pockets organize all the small things, while the external side pocket stows the duffel for compact storage. Compression straps prevent your gear from bouncing around whether you're traveling via airplane or four-wheeler.

    Kind of surprised

      When I opened this bag up I was surprised at how small it looked. No way would it hold my wet suit, my son's wetsuit, my dry top, two neoprene hoods, two pairs of neoprene mittens and booties and a pair of board shorts. I was wrong, with room to spare.

      I use this for everything!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I use this for traveling, putting my wet suit in (even after surfing), putting my ski stuff in, etc. It is very durable, but it is still light weight and will fold down very small. Has lots of loops for strapping down as well. I would recommend this to anyone. It is a very versatile bag

      What More Can Be Said

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      116 x 5 star reviews? I think the reviewers below have already provided enough reason to love this bag. I purchased the smaller version first and used it as a gym back and weekend traveller. I quickly realized it was the perfect size for a gym bag, but I was always maxing out on space for long weekend trips. So I purchased this larger sized bag second. Perfect size for those long weekend trips, and the addition of the backpack straps to this size is soooo helpful when running through airports.

      Best Duffel Ever!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These Patagonia Black Hole Duffels are my favorite! I ordered the black color, and they're so shiny + sleek in person! You can fit everything under the sun in there, AND I love the backpack straps! Highly recommend for anyone!

      Pack your gear in another dimension

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I LOVE THIS BAG! The 60 liter size is the perfect carry on size but still big enough to pack a weeks worth of clothing and gear. And even more if you're a light packer. I am constantly amazed at how much stuff I can fit in there, it's like having access to dimensional portal and never ending storage.
      Even when fully loaded down, the backpack straps make it comfortable to carry all that weight wherever you're headed. The durable rip stop fabric with TPU coating keeps your gear dry and safe no matter where you leave your bag. I've taken this duffel from the airport to the mountains to the desert and back and it has performed well everywhere. With Patagonia's Ironclad Guarantee, I look forward to using this duffel for the rest of my life.

      Best. Travel. Bag. Ever.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      If you're on the fence, BUY THIS BAG. It's the perfect size for a carry-on (though something about the yellow color makes airline attendants curious if it will fit in the size guide bin...sigh), it's comfortable to carry, it fits an obscene amount of stuff, and it's durable as hell. I've gotten another color as a backup bag, and plan to buy a third as a gift for my husband who is still rocking an old Thule duffle from forever ago. It's simply the best bag for traveling...something I do at least a few times a month.

      Perfect Carry On Size. Airline friendly

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I was looking for a right size black hole for carry on. I was reading reviews and most of them were pointing out that 45L is the biggest size for carry on, but I needed something bigger. I decided to go for it anyway and I was worried 60L might not fit as many airlines have different size overhead compartments. It was fine even on Spirit and United as they have, I think, smallest and strictest requirements for carry on bags. I am attaching picture with the bag on the plane. Fits perfect in the compartment and I was able to fit more stuff in the black hole duffel than my carry on bag on wheels. This duffel is really a black hole. I had everything organized, besides clothes I had camera lenses, chargers, DJI UAV's and bunch of accessories with extra batteries, shoes and warm clothes and toiletries on top. The duffel could fit even more stuff, I was amazed.



      I cannot comment on how waterproof it is, but I assume it is water-resistant only on the top, bottom is cushioned but it does not look water-resistant.



      It is very comfortable to carry it with the straps on short distances. It is somewhat confusing which one is left and right, they sit equally on the shoulders. I was able to figure which way by the picture and with the trial and error. Do not expect it to be as comfortable as the backpack, but it is great carrying it as a backpack on your way to the hotel. Definitely not hiking with it.

      Perfect Carry On Size. Airline friendly

      This is great! Thank you for the image and review Aleksey! Standard airlines only permit for a 45 L bag to be used as a carry-on but I have been able to sneak my 60 L on some planes as well. If you are looking for this as carry on use some caution that you may get rejected but often times you can go through without even batting an eye.

      Absolutely In Love!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is an excellent piece of gear to add to the quiver! Great for carrying odds and ends around town, great at carrying camping goods on the back of a motorcycle for 1000+ miles of dirt road, great for a nice grab bag to take on quick overnighters. This bag is great to bring along on any adventure and can take a beating!

      Favorite bag

        It is THE perfect size! will hold enough for a long weekend and some running gear. Having the bigger size already I purchased this bag in red and I absolutely adore it, using it almost every day. Fabric holds great and super resistant to wear and tear. Another great product coming from a GREAT company!

        Not your average duffel

        • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

        It's hard not to love these bags. I bought one for myself a long time ago, and recently it became a go-to gift idea. It's just a great bag, and there are colors / sizes for everyone .

        FIVE STARS AGAIN

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This bag is truly bombproof, perfect for weekend get-out-n-away, keeps its new look for years, and the backpack option is handy for hands-free. Colors are awesome! I have the 45L which is perfect overnighter but this 60L lets me pile EVERYTHING in one bag. LOVE IT!

        The gold standard for all duffel bags.

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This is the perfect travel duffel. At 60 liters, its just the right size to use a carry on bag, and has plenty of room for lots of clothes and some gear too! They work great as a quick grab-and-go gear bag too, and the Black Hole fabric is incredibly tough and durable, and water-resistant. If you don't already own one of these, get one. You won't regret it.

        Amazing!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Today is a sad day for me because this duffel is so great that it caused me to retire my Adidas duffel bag from 4th grade soccer practice. RIP Adidas duffel. On a more serious note, this bag is incredible. Fits a ton of gear and it's made of heavy duty 900D Ripstop that I know will last forever. Super stoked on this purchase!

        EVERYTHING FITS SO WELL!?!

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I'm still a bit in awe of just how much junk I was able to pack into this little guy. Perfect for almost any adventure, whether you're hitting the town or the trail. The internal organizers keep my life in order, and the two mesh pockets in the lid make it easy to spot small items. The bag is incredibly durable and though it is not waterproof, it does resist light moisture. Carry it normally as a duffel by the handles or over/across your shoulder, or switch it into backpack mode and throw it on your back. I'll be flying home for the holidays, so I've got the 60L black hole as my carry-on and a matching 120L in Paintbrush Red of course, so it's easy to spot at baggage claim!

        The best duffel ever?

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I've taken this duffel with me all over the world. My husband has one as well and also loves it. It's the perfect size for traveling and we've dragged ours on dozens of flights with zero issues. The material is durable and can handle a beating and cleans off easily. The option to wear it as a backpack is awesome and the straps are adjustable which is also a plus. The side pocket is HUGE and holds a lot of stuff. I do wish the inner two pockets were a smidge bigger, but they are big enough to hold a few travel sized toiletries. The zipper entrance to the duffel sits against your back when you wear it so you don't need to worry about somebody getting into it while you're wearing it. Overall a great bag whether you are backpacking through SE Asia or going on a weekend trip.

        Unanswered Question

        Has anyone taken this on Ryanair? I know the demensions are slightly bigger then the carry on limit, but if you pack light can you make it fit?

        This DRW coating is not explained. Please elaborate.
        Is this duffel waterproof? Can it be made waterproof? If so what to use for waterproofing?

        Hi , has anyone taken this bag as carry on luggage in a plane? Do you know if it's too big? Many thanks!

        Unanswered Question

        What are the interior colors and how dark/light is it for the interior of all the duffle colors available including classic red? I'm looking for interior colors that are light so it is easier to find things. I don't want to be lost in a "black hole"!

        Unanswered Question

        Can a single shoulder strap be purchased separately? Or can the backpack strap be utilized as a shoulder strap?

        Does this bag have the traditional single over the shoulder strap or just the backpack style straps?

        Best Answer

        i had the same question and eventually figured out that the bottom end of the backpack strap (opposite the clipped end) slides diagonally through the plastic part attached to the bag. Hope that makes sense

        Is the 60L carry-on size?

        Agnes,



        Most US carry-on restrictions are in the neighborhood of 22" x 14" x 9" -- the 60L Black Hole is ~25" x 13" x 10". I've used it as a carry-on five or six times, but not fully packed. If it were 100% full, packed to the gills, you might not get away with it, but for the most part, I'd say yes, it'll work fine as a carry-on.



        Let me know if you have any other questions-- I'd be happy to help! I can be reached via email at llabar@backcountry.com or 801.736.6399.

        Best Answer

        I packed mine to the gills, and though it was about 2.5 inches over the total restriction for American Airlines, no one said a word to me about it, maybe because I had it on my back, and most backpacks are well within guidelines. So for me, this was awesome as a carry on, and I loved getting to use it as a "backpack". But beware that different airlines have different restrictions and also have an up-charge if you claim it as a checked bag AT the airport (rather than doing it online beforehand). But some airlines also let things slide. Worst case scenario, they may tell you it's too big at the gate--just take a couple things out of it and squeeze it down to make it fit in their little size-tester-thingamajigs (something you can't do with a boxy suitcase)--it can surely take the rough handling! :) Good luck!!!

        Wondering why they went to 900d from the previous version that is 1200d and how that is heavier duty than the previous version.

        Best Answer

        Hello uraudi, what a good question. The previous model was made with 14.7-oz. 1,200-denier 100% polyester, whereas the new model is made with 15-oz. 900-denier 100% polyester ripstop. The fabric's weight does affect abrasion resistance, so the newer model is made with "ripstop" polyester, whereas the previous model--though coming in at 1200d--is not listed as ripstop (ripstop refers to the weaving of fibers into the fabric into a diamond or square shape that, when punctured or torn, are better able to stop the tear from growing). You can actually see the difference in the fabric, with the one the right being the new, 900d polyester ripstop (see the characteristic ripstop squares?) with the one on the left being the older model. So, the bottom line is the integrity might be even better in the new model, despite the difference in denier.



        I hope that helps!

        What are the differences between this and the previous version other than a $10 difference. It also looks like the external attachment points are shifted a bit. Anything else?

        great question. The Black Hole bags were fully redesigned for this season.

        Here are the updates:

        New more durable fabric.

        Updated pack strap interface - more secure and easier to take on and off

        Internal compression straps

        The entire bag self stuffs into the front pocket

        (we should have a video available soon detailing all of the updates as well)
