We built the Black Hole™ Pack because more often than not, your day has its own plans. This rugged, highly weather-resistant gear bag protects your belongings when the weather turns surly or your hike morphs into a contentious scramble. The large main pocket holds the lion’s share. An internal sleeve carries most 15" laptops or a hydration reservoir, and a mesh pocket equipped with a key keeper organizes small items. Daisy chain lash points secure a skateboard or yoga mat—a zippered front pocket holds quick-access items. For carrying comfort, the backpack’s padded shoulder straps have load lifters and a sternum strap. A molded back panel sheds moisture and allows a cooling airflow, and a simple waistband secures the pack. Made from 13-oz 450-denier polyester ripstop (50% solution-dyed) with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Water Resistant

 (durable water repellent) fabric finish repels light rain and snow and decreases dry times. When DWR is used in conjunction with a waterproof/breathable barrier, the DWR finish keeps the outer fabric from becoming saturated so that the breathable barrier can do its job.

Black Hole Pack 32L is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honestly Great Product I bought this bag after I previously found out that the Anacapa was too small for me. The bag is amazing really and you can fit so much into it. I can fit several rows of binders and books and also fit more above them thanks to the room in the flap. Ive recognized that this bag also doubles as a duffle due to the fact that it has that large flap and a full handle right above the daisy chain. The bag is comfortable, functional, and looks great. I live in Michigan and as most probably know, we get a lot of snow. I snowboard quite a bit and walk around campus as well and needed something that wasn't going to make my books and supplies wet. I couldn't quite afford the Stormfront so this was the closest thing. Truly a Patagonia quality product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice bag that I primarily use for climbing I bought the 32L Black Hole Pack with climbing in mind since I found my 25L Black Hole Pack to be a tad smaller than I'd prefer for climbing and so I could keep the 25L dedicated to bike commuting. I can fit my trad rack, rock shoes, 70m rope, helmet, and other essentials inside the 32L (though it's pretty tight with the rope). The side zipper is very nice for being able to access something at the bottom of the bag. I've also used the bag as a rope bucket to keep the rope out of the dirt while belaying. While I know Patagonia has a number of bags specifically designed for climbing (e.g. the Ascensionist, etc.), I've always preferred the Black Hole line for their durability and water resistance. Overall, I'm pretty satisfied with the 32L but I do prefer the design of the 25L. The flap of the 32L is kind of weird. The bag basically zips up and then folds over itself. If the design is going to have a flap, I'd prefer the traditional drawstring style with a separate flap that covers the top of the bag to keep water out. That type of design would also allow draping things (e.g. a rope) over the top of the bag and under the flap. Overall, the 32L is a good bag but the design could use some tweaks. The 25L is a homerun, though.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Chic I needed a sturdy backpack for my commute to/from work in San Francisco so the chance of rain/fog is always high which is why I picked the Black Hole Back for the waterproof feature! I got it in black and it is very chic looking. It fits great and holds ALMOST everything I need for my commute. I have a 15 minute walk to my bus and then I commute 1.5 hours on the bus so I bring a neck pillow with me along with a book, chargers and other things for my laptop- it all fits great! My ONLY complaint... there is no place to put a water bottle!!! The Black Hole 25 has a water bottle holder, but why doesn't the Black Hole 32?!?! Still love the pack, but a little sad that I need to rework the inside to fit my water bottle!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits EVERYTHING This bag is great! It replaced the previous version of the Black Hole Pack, which let rain in through the top zip. The front webbing for clipping stinky climbing shoes to is a must. The inside space is awesome with its many pockets, and the dual-directional side zip is amazing (although the bottom zip pull which allows for side loading could use a hook or snap to keep it from opening if the pull catches on something, which I should note hasn't actually happened yet). It goes climbing, hiking, and to work. The only other thing that could make this bag better would be water resistant zips, since the rest of the bag keeps water out really well!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice bag, but I have beef with it. I bought this to commute with on my bike in the rain, which it works great for, but I also bought it to keep my stuff dry while I worked on a trail crew all winter. It does keep things pretty dry, but my beef with it is that the hip straps are really dinky and are really not meant to hold any weight because they have no padding. As a lady hip padding is a must, and as a 32 liter pack I feel like they should have assumed you were going to fit some weight in there. Also, the part that goes up against your back has no ridgidity at all, so if you are shorter like me or if you don't stuff the bag all the way it ends up slumping really awkwardly away from your back, I think for that price I would have liked some sort of internal frame or something to keep the shape, it would also help save gear from poking you in the back if it shuffles around. My last suggestion would be to add mesh pockets on the outside that can accommodate big water bottles. Mesh pockets are gold to people that are on the move and only have one hand to spare. I will say I love the size of the outer zippy pocket, I'm always surprised how big of a book I can fit in there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Almost perfect... I've been looking for a replacement for my tired messenger bag that I use for work that carries a laptop, notebooks, pens, headphones, and laptop accessories (powercord, mouse etc.). When I saw this backpack in the Patagonia store I thought it would be a great replacement. I have mine in black which is a very versatile color in this back as the gloss black looks great for work but also after work when things are more casual. Pros: -Looks: This thing looks awesome -Storage: The flap over the top really helps to expand the storage of this backpack from a good small pack to something that can hold an additional set of clothes. This was an unexpected surprise that means I can uses this over others/ additional packs. -Material: Loving the look but also that its fully waterproof giving me the confidence to take a computer/ camera to places I might not with another pack. Cons: -Shoulder straps: Not comfortable at all. Nylon/mesh covered foam. They remind me of the LL Bean backpack shoulder straps I had in middle school over 20 years ago. The inner part of the shoulder strap is mesh and the outer half is a rough nylon. They are s-curved, but I've tried them tight, loose and in the middle without improvement. They always have a rough feeling digging into the shoulder. I have worn the Ascensionist 45l backpack and love its shoulder straps so I think they should take them from another backpack they have already designed. Waist belt: In its non use state it clips together at the base of the back which can add an uncomfortable bump in the lower back area. I have remedied this by strapping around the through the front. It's storage could be improved upon. Would be nice: -large inner mesh pocket on the inside of the top flap. I keep a nylon pencil holder bag and keep it in the top flap area but it would be nice if there was a pocket up there. This is an awesome pack but if I can't find a comfortable way to wear the shoulder straps it defeats the whole purpose of a do-it-all backpack. They have a winner if they give the shoulder straps as much attention as the rest of the pack.
