Patagonia Lightweight Black Hole Bags
If you’re the type to always be prepared while never knowing if you’ll need extra carrying room, Patagonia’s Lightweight Black Hole collection was made for you. These ripstop nylon packs, like their non-Lightweight brethren, are near indestructible, yet pack away without adding much bulk, or weight thanks to carefully pruned-down designs. They’re also suited to weather inclement conditions thanks to a TUP-film laminate and DWR finish on all outer fabric. The backpacks are strategically built with breathable mesh shoulder straps and back panels plus an adjustable sternum strap, albeit without padding (there had to be sacrifices somewhere) while the two duffel sizes feature diagonal zippers to grant full access to their main compartment and tubular webbing grab handles that adjust for use as a handle, shoulder strap, or as a sort of oversized backpack. Each also offers well-placed pockets to help organize your smaller objects from your keys to your water bottle(s).
