Read More Close
We’re pretty sure this is the burliest messenger bag to ever meet a daily commute. Tough and highly weather-resistant, it protects its contents from travel’s travails. A roomy main compartment holds books, papers, running shoes and a lunch. Inside, a padded sleeve protects most 15" laptops, and two mesh pockets come equipped with a key keeper and an organization panel to hold your pens, small items and a phone. The flap has an outer pocket that seals with a water-shedding zipper, two daisy chains to hold your bike lock and a webbing loop to attach a bike light. Designed for a vertical fit while you’re riding, the fully adjustable shoulder strap switches between right- or left-carry and features a single-handed, quick adjustment for a precise fit. A padded back panel softens the loads. With a topside carrying handle, reflective material for visibility at night and lash straps to hold a yoga pad. Made from 13-oz 450-denier 100% polyester ripstop (50% solution-dyed) with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.

Water Resistant

DWR (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™ Messenger 24L is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't like it. I totally miss the Half Mass bag, I have owned 3 since Patagonia started making them. The Black Hole messenger 24L bag was the new replacement and it's doesn't compare to the Half Mass. Sure the water proofing is good idea, but there isn't a water bottle pocket on the outside. The waist strap is gone which is key when carrying heavier loads or on a bike/scooter. Patagonia have taken away some of the pockets from the inside which were nice features. The strap is sowed on oddly so that it bunches up in the D ring. I have traveled all over the world with my Half Mass it was awesome! Please bring back the features of the old bag!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size Great bag - lots of space for every day commutes and or for short trips. The shoulder strap works well if slung over the shoulder messenger bag style but scrunches up if over one shoulder which is not ideal. Hard wearing and fine for a rain shower.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from What happened to the old features My old Patagonia Messenger, which I used daily for bike commuting, was (besides the fabric) a much better bag all-around than the current version. Commuters need the cross body strap, and this bag, for some reason seems to be lacking what its older relatives had in that department. There are fewer pockets, fewer pen holders, zipper pockets, etc., than the previous versions. Most of all, I miss the side pocket, which was great for holding my Hydro Flask of coffee every morning. Patagonia seems to be making bags now not designed for their core, but instead for people who want to be trendy and just walk around with a bag with a label on it. It's unfortunate. Please bring back the side pocket and the cross body strap Patagonia, and when you do, send me a new bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from perfect size for me I bought one in blue to hold my laptop and sheet music for work in the blue color. I've been using for a couple months and it's holding up really well so far. I like the fact that it's big enough so I don't have to worry about running out of room when I need to put extra things in it. It's also really nice that it's got a waterproof top. I expect to use this is as my work briefcase for a long time in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great fabric, durability; bring back side pockets! The black hole messenger replaced the critical mass series which were fantastic daily bags for work/commute and weekend travel. Love the new water resistant fabric on the black hole series but Patagonia got rid of the super handy side pockets on the newer iterations. My old critical mass carries a nalgene on one side and my phone/wallet on the other for quick and easy access. This bag has no outside pockets so I have to go inside the flap (and through the velcro) to grab my water bottle or phone. Not nearly as convenient so I'm going to keep on patching my old school critical mass.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Daily Commuter/Travel Bag I use this bag every day for work, and when traveling as well. Anyone who does not rate this bag as five stars is just flat wrong, in my opinion. I'll address a couple of points here: - The laptop sleeve is indeed for 15" laptops, but I often carry a 17" laptop loose in the bag and have experienced absolutely zero issues. In fact, I sometimes carry TWO laptops (15" and 17"), and I don't even bother putting the 15" one in the sleeve, because I trust this bag completely even without it. - This bag is bomb-proof, but still aesthetically appealing. I bought it in black, and it looks professional enough to carry in an office setting. For the man concerned about shoulder-bags out there, I find it to have a more masculine flavor than not. It is completely weatherproof, so I never worry about the conditions I have to run/walk through, and this material literally does not scratch or tear - it looks brand new after about a year of constant use. - The shoulder strap is functional and comfortable, though it does occasionally twist inside of the padding section. At times, I have carried two laptops, two chargers, and two textbooks in this bag, and though it is definitely heavy on the shoulder, it is by no means uncomfortable. Outstanding product, and highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Teacher Bag. This bag works perfectly for this high school math teacher. It easily carries the books and papers I need. it is also easy to organize the "tools of the trade" that I have to have with me all the time. These include calculators, pens, pencils, protractors, etc. It looks like it will last years, too.
