Patagonia decided the wheel was a pretty good invention after all, so they added two of them to the Black Hole bags and created this burly, smooth-rolling duffel. Made from waterproof fabric and equipped with water-resistant zippers and seams, it will protect your gear from rain and rough handling and still hold everything you need for an extended trip. The U-shaped lid allows quick access to the main compartment, while two zippered mesh pockets inside keep small items organized. A zippered exterior pocket provides an easy-access location for boarding pass, energy bar or copy of Mountain Life Annual.

The sturdy frame sheet protects the duffel from baggage-handler abuse and keeps your Black Hole upright, even when it’s loaded to the max. Oversized wheels deliver a smooth ride, whether you’re crossing the tarmac or following a cobblestone street. Carrying options include the main webbing handles (with snap closure), a two-position, telescoping handle or the two haul loops on either end. You can lash additional gear to the outside with the four, corner-mounted daisy chains.
