Patagonia Black Hole Duffel 45 Liter Review
Patagonia Black Hole Duffel 45L
Patagonia Black Hole Duffel has an attractive look, solid build, and 45-liter capacity that makes it smallest duffel bag in the Black Hole range. It is offered in four different color options of black, paintbrush red, strait blue, and navy blue, whichever you fancy as there are only very small price differences.
Black Hole Duffel is made of heavy-duty burly 900-denier polyester ripstop and water-resistant TPU- thermoplastic urethane laminate with DWR- durable water repellent finish along with a nicely padded base. Your belongings will be protected from the impact as they should be. The fabric is very tough overall and super resistant to weather conditions.
It has a big zipper at the top that goes around the three sides of the bag smoothly so you can get into the main section easily. Packing your stuff and finding an item when you arrive at a destination is easy. There is also a side zippered pocket inside and two small zippered mesh pockets on the lid- both are convenient to have for your toiletries and other smaller items.
You also have the zippered pocket on the exterior to hold the items like passport and ID card you would need to access quickly at the airport etc. These pockets will help keep your stuff well organized. It comes with removable shoulder straps that are padded properly for your comfort. And the strengthened haul handles make it easy to lift and carry your items. About half of the fabric is solution-dyed and the color will stay intact for much longer.
It is lightweight and comfy to carry, weighs just 1.12 pounds and measures 20 x 12.5 x 9.5 inches- is a carry-on size bag and can be easily taken on board the plane and will fit in the overhead locker or even under the seat in front of you. You can use the new Patagonia Duffel when you’re going to the gym, put your gym shoes, shorts, t-shirt, towels, and water in, climbing, swimming and diving gear or when you’re going away on holidays for a couple of days on weekends.
It will be very easy to spot this bag due to its unique design and colors on a luggage carousel among a sea of bags. You’ll also find the burly reinforced daisy chains to be able to fasten extra stuff to the outside of the bag. When you’re not using the bag, you can actually stuff the whole thing into the main large pocket inside the bag to be able to store it conveniently. You can wipe clean the exterior and interior materials easier than the regular canvas type duffel bags. Overall, the 45 liters Patagonia Black Hole Duffel is very attractive and easy to the eyes, functional, versatile and durable.
