Patagonia calls its line of ultra-durable duffel bags the Black Hole series because they swallow up clothes and gear in a seemingly endless void of space, and even though it's not the largest in the lineup, the Black Hole 55L Duffel Bag might embody this more than any other.
You'll be pleasantly surprised by its storage capacity on gear-intensive weekend travels or longer trips where you end up packing a bit lighter. Its burly and bombroof ripstop fabric withstands wear and tear from endless adventures, and doesn't mind being tossed down on rocky and rugged surfaces. The Black Hole series also boasts a highly water-resistant construction that keeps your stuff dry from all but the most relentless downpours, so you can have some peace of mind when your bag's resting in the back of a pickup. Deployable backpack straps make it easy to carry when you're wandering new cities or hiking trails, while daisy chain loops provide lashing points for extra equipment and gear.
