The creators of the Patagonia Black Hole Duffel Bag were inspired by the sleek elegance of Orca whales. The TPU-film laminate is patterned closely after the skin of these powerful killer whales. This finish provides waterproofing that puts Patagonia head and shoulders above the rest of the competition. The elegant design of this bag doesn't stop with just the polyester and its laminate. The bag has a U-shaped lid that provides easy access to the main compartment, and the zippered exterior pocket and the two internal zippered mess pockets are very convenient for storing smaller items. The Patagonia Black Hole duffel bag is made for outdoor enthusiasts who demand a lot from their gear.

Perfect weekly travel companion

I work as an engineer and travel weekly - usually with a hardhat and safety boots in tow. I've tried everything from carry-on wheeled bags (20"), to regular duffel bags but the former were usually half empty and the latter were awkward to carry ("floppy" with hard & heavy "chunks" - my boots and helmet). For me, I've found that the Black Hole duffel is perfect - it has has a surprising amount of space inside for everything but still keeps it's shape even when it's half empty. I've never had to check it in at the gate because there's always a sliver of space big enough for the bag in the airline overhead bins (even those "mini" ones at the front of the cabin). I've slept on it, kicked it across the floor in many an airline queue and thrown it around too many times to remember. The handles on the end make for easy and reliable grabbing for all the time's I'm in a rush to make a flight. And the material it's made of stands up to all the mud, rain and dust that I put it through as I go from plant to plant. One feature that is especially handy is the mesh pocket in the top. It's perfect for keeping all your chargers, first aid kit, deodorant, etc, in easy reach. This is probably on the 'superlight'-use end of the scale that the bag was designed for. But it does it's job perfectly; and let's me concentrate on mine. This winter I'll be looking at a 65L one and a roller bag for my snowboards.

Almost perfect

I ordered 2 different bags--the Black Hole 45L and the NF Base Camp size small. Although the Patagonia bag claims more volume, that is not the case. It's a little smaller than the NF bag. But overall I liked the Patagonia bag better, so it's the one I kept. My intent was to use it as a carry on bag, but my main use would be for camping. I didn't think the lack of a shoulder strap or backpack straps would be a big deal, but I was wrong. Carrying the bag through the airport was a major pain. And then when I had to change hotels part way through the trip and decided to walk from one to the other, it was even more of a pain to carry. Now to be fair, I am a petite gal. My husband didn't mind carrying his bag as much. For camping it would probably be fine, but the bag ended up being a little to small anyway, so I am now considering the 60L Black Hole, since it has more room and backpack straps.

I like this duffel a lot. In the same class as The North Face base camp duffel, this pack is durable and water resistant with backpack style straps and D fashioned access. The only down fall is this pack is not fully waterproof, which is a bummer, but though it is not I have had it in my basket on top of my car rack during down pour for hours and the worst of it was some moisture on the side traveling towards the front of the car. So it is pretty water resistant. This could be quickly fixed by packing gear and clothes in dry bags to help organize. Other than that this pack is pretty bomb and I will be using it for years to come I am sure. Just remember this is not waterproof if that is what your after. I got the XL 120L and if your going for the 90 I would suggest do yourself a favor and go 120.

Solid product. I wouldn't mind some tweaks :)

As a typical Patagonia product, this is a well-built and sturdy duffel bag. I'm almost always really happy with any Patagonia product which is why I'm willing to pay the price. It's just the right size for carrying gym clothes and workout gear without becoming too bulky. I've been using it for a month now as a daily carry bag. Its strong and sturdy without being too heavy. Note:
The 45L is the only model of the Black Hole duffel that does not have straps for wearing like a backpack. I ended up adding a shoulder strap by attaching it to the daisy chains on diagonal corners. What I would like to see changed: - Add a shoulder strap option: It's too small to get the backpack strap treatment like the other models. But its nice to have a hands-free way to carry it - Add rubber feet/bumpers to the bottom

Patagonia Black Hole Duffel 45L

I really like using this bag for it's intended purposes. It's durable and the size is really perfect for a pair of shoes, 2 changes of cloths and smaller items within it. I like the quality of the zippers, the handles on each side are really excellent as well for carry options or clicking in carabiners for eventual or actual usage on items that are not terribly too heavy. I also like the two zippered internal mesh pockets and the external four daisy chains for some additional gear to hook onto the outside. I selected the Mission Olive color and like that it's a really dark foresty green. If you need a small duffel, this is a really nice option and I hope to get years of use from it.
DiazJ at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 08/08/2012

Perfect field bag

This size makes it the perfect athletic gear bag. Plenty of room for whatever you need for a work-out, practice, or tournament and your gear will all stay dry. I have this and the 60 and 90L sizes, and the advantages of this size are that you can easily find everything because there's not a lot of extra room to have things get lost! My only suggestion is that I wish the bag came with a shoulder strap (detachable?). The two hand straps can be used as back-pack straps for easy carrying, but if the bag is filled to the brim, it's tough to fit on that way and probably wouldn't work as well for those with broad shoulders. All in all, I'm a huge fan.

Great Duffel

I have a number of the Black Hole Duffels and I'm glad Patagonia came out with the smaller 45L. Like the other Black Hole Duffels, the 45L is well constructed, bullet proof, and I like the color choices this year. The end handles are padded and have enough room to get a large hand around them. The zipper top opens in a "U" shape so you can view the contents of the duffel easier. There is one outside pocket to store smaller items that you may need to access on a routine basis. Bottom line: thumbs up.
slorowing at Patagonia on 04/07/2012

Ok but hard on hands

This is a nice bag for a gym bag or day trip but the handle cover is not comfortable. i took it on a quick trip and found it hard to carry in the airport because of the handle cover. I'm thinking about taking it off and seeing if I can replace it with something. Also, I'd prefer if it had more than one outside pocket. Otherwise, I like the construction of the bag. If I were to buy another one, i'd get one size bigger as this one is a bit small.
Canoeist at Patagonia on 08/24/2012

Great Small Duffel

I purchased a couple of the Black Hole duffels to use on general trips, camping, and shuttling stuff to the boat and back. So far I have the 45L and the 60L. The 45L is a little smaller than I was expecting, but have found it very useful for tossing in a few layers for a day out-and-about, holding all my bike gear for a trip (including shoes and helmet), and for quick overnighters. I'll likely expand my collection of these bags as they work very well and seem well constructed.
Birk at Patagonia on 06/05/2013

Almost Perfect

Does as advertised. Much nicer functionality than any other duffle that I have used but you are paying for it. Holds more than it appears from the outside. I wish the exterior were not so glossy. I would have given it 5 stars except the padding on the bottom of the bag is too narrow and should extend to the edges or even up the sides a bit (like the older Patagonia Skid-Plate bag). This would help to better protect the contents and give the bag more structure.

Negative Reviews:

Not quite

Some good features, but some big misses. Unlike the 60+ liter versions, this bag does not have backpack straps. That's fine, but it doesn't have a shoulder strap either. Big miss in my book as you don't have the option of carrying it by the shoulder - one hand is always tied up. Technically you could clip a strap to the end handles, but those are not in the right placement so the bag will fold inwards (strap should connect at the top of end not in the middle of the end). Also too few pockets -- for this $ a couple more would be nice. Disappointed so I am returning.

Small duffel has no shoulder strap

This is a good quality, small duffel, but I returned it because it doesn't have a shoulder strap, or even a convenient place to attach one.

Please and backpack straps

I've been looking at this bag on and off for years, perfect size for many of my needs, overnight travel, or as a gym bag. Would buy it in a heartbeat if only it had backpack straps as it's totally impractical to carry in hand, or even with a single over the shoulder strap for any distance. I'm sure price point vs the next size up in a factor, my suggestion, eliminate the carry strap and put backpack straps in it's place, for a bag this size they will work as carry straps but not visa versa. Having read reviews on this item for many years, I'm not the only one thinking this, it's the most frequently mentioned con, by far.
HorizonMan at Patagonia on 01/11/2014

Needs some tweaks

As many others have said, an optional shoulder strap is highly desirable. The bottom of the bag should be covered with the same water resistant material on the top of the bag! When it is wet out and I need to set this down somewhere I don't like it soaking up water from underneath. At least one extra compartment would be good for storing wet items separate from dry, or dirty/clean, etc. Something like the outer compartment on the MLC bag. In fact, an MLC version with the water resistant design elements would be fantastic.
BZBZ at Patagonia on 11/24/2012

Black Hole Bag -

Surprised how small/little the bag held - with a name like "Black Hole" I expected a bit bigger - No shoulder strap which was kind of a drag. perfect for gym, airport travel & weekend trips, but you wont get a ton of gear in there.

Solid construction & lots of compartments - but no strap & small size made its use kind of limited for me.
Wldw10 at REI on 12/12/2013

Strap

If this bag had a shoulder strap I'd buy 10 of them! Don't know why they didn't include a strap . .. or at least the option of adding one.
ldinkc at Patagonia on 06/02/2013

Excellent product, terrible service

The bag is completely functional and fit for its purpose. Patagonia is an excellent, environmentally conscious company and I support buying their products.
