Patagonia Black Hole MLC 45L Convertible Backpack

Born out of the popular Patagonia Black Hole duffel back, Patagonia’s Black Hole backpacks are available in a few different styles and sizes:

The 45 liter version of the Black Hole is a large backpack that converts to a duffel bag when you need it. Made specifically for travel, the bag opens up like a suitcase to reveal a generous main compartment that can fit multiple days of clothes and gear. Internal organizers and pockets for laptops, documents and tickets make the Patagonia Black Hole MLC bag perfect for everything from work trips to weekend adventures.

What we like

  • Great to use as a airline carry-on. Convertible design allows for easy carry at airports.

  • Main compartment is very roomy. Divided pockets on the one side makes it easy to store smaller personal items.

What we don’t like

  • No waist-belt to help with weight distribution for when the bag gets heavy.

  • No compression straps to prevent your stuff from moving around when the bag is not full.
