Rough, tough, and ready to tumble.
Great for just about anything you can throw at it, the The Black Hole Duffel-Pack by Patagonia is made with double thick fabric, reinforced stitching and a waterproof coating to protect your gear from the elements or any man handling the baggage carriers can offer up.
The main compartment is accessed by a zippered U-shaped lid, which has a pair of zippered mesh pockets on the underside for small items.
A zippered exterior pocket holds the stuff you need to access quickly and the padded bottom panel adds structure and helps cushion the load.
Carry it around using the backpack straps or with the two webbing handles. Handles have a snap closure and haul loops at either end that facilitate linking multiple bags. Four daisy chains let you lash additional gear to the outside.
Made from 14.7-oz 1,200-denier polyester (50% solution-dyed) with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
All in all a great duffel for sailing gear and travel. I'll be holding onto this one for a long time.
- Versatility and durability
- I wish the smaller versions had backpack straps as well
