This burly duffle bag is inspired by the simple utility of shipping containers on trains. Made from waterproof fabric and equipped with water–resistant zippers and seams, it will protect your gear from rain and rough handling. Its U–shaped lid allows quick access to the main compartment, while two zippered internal mesh pockets keep small items organised. The padded bottom panel adds structure and helps cushion the load when your duffle gets overly zealous baggage handler treatment. Carrying options include removable, padded shoulder straps, webbing handles with 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. A zippered exterior pocket holds the stuff you need to access quickly.

“Practical and sturdy bag. .”
“Perfect bag for backpacking in style. Exactly as described. Love it. Will be traveling for 4 months with it,.”
“Great quality bag with some drawbacks. A great quality travel bag, with generous capacity. Would be nice if it had an over the shoulder strap as well. Bag handle also rides up your spine when carrying it as a backpack. The bag could do with a design upgrade. I ended up exchanging this one for a burton backhill duffle, which can be worn over the shoulder, as a backpack and is small enough to be considered as hand luggage by most carriers.”
“Perfect duffle. Perfect duffle.”
“Just what I wanted. The bag is what i wanted and rushfaster had it at the price liked.”
“Lightweight, durable gym duffle carryon doubling as carryon backpack. I needed backpack that is able to be a gym bag to carry all my work and boxing gear with enough volume. The patagonia black hole is made of a very durable and water resistant material and is both a backpack and duffle meaning great versatility. The backpack straps are surprisingly comfy despite only having a medium width. The greatest thing about it is the price. Its cheaper than its rival the north face and for the quality it is a lot cheaper than sports brand duffles like nike, adidas etc.. Definitely recommended if youre looking for a sports bag big enough to carry a lot of gear while being small enough to go onto a plane as carryon luggage.”
“Great for traveling! This bag is perfect for a weekend getaway or even an overseas trip if you know how to pack light :p i love it!!”
