For alpine climbers, river guides and ski patrollers, schlepping gear is in the job description. That’s why they choose Patagonia's Black Hole Duffels. Made from waterproof fabric and equipped with water-resistant zippers and seams, they will protect your gear from rain and rough handling. The 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 duffel gets the baggage-handler treatment. Carrying options include removable, padded and adjustable shoulder straps, webbing handles with a snap closure and haul loops at either end (to link 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.

“Good size, right weight an option of back straps. I needed a soft sided bag, no wheels for africa and this is a size i can manage and also fit in all i need, is made of sturdy stuff and if i need to i can use the spare straps to put the duffle on my back. It has a companion shoulder bag. Neat but practical luggage.”
