πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "I use this for climbing gym gear and Chose this one over North Face because the Patagonia has a satchel hand strap, whereas the Base Camp does not anymore. Aesthetically, these duffels look great; and temptation is to think they will not stand up to a beating. But this is my second, and I can vouch from the first that they are tough as nails."
  • "Fits easy in overhead locker, easy pockets, great backpack option, great grab handles, waterproof. What's not to love."
  • "These are so durable! Mine came shipped with the ink tag on it still but after I finally got it off and opened it up I was immediately impressed by the quality of materials, stitching, volume, and the size of the top opening! A+ workmanship, Patagonia!"

Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Bag 40L Review

"On the road, it’s a great travel companion—especially if packed out correctly. During our testing, we’ve found the best carry experience, for both duffle and backpack modes, when you completely fill it up out with clothes and/or packing cubes. Plus, it’s a popular bag, so we saw plenty of other travelers using these in the wild. It feels like we’re part of a club."

Patagonia Black Hole Review

"A classy-looking duffel bag that performs well across the board with its tough, weather-resistant design...It makes a great all-around option for world adventurers, weekend warriors, and casual travelers alike."
