Built like a can of whupass to keep two-wheeled commuters focused on their ride, not the status of their goods. Made with our infamously tough Black Hole™ Duffel fabric, this condensed shoulder bag is highly water-resistant, superdurable and designed to carry the essentials whether you’re traveling via bike, rails or plane. The top flap opens to expose the main compartment, which holds the bulkier items—rain shell, paperwork, snacks. A padded sleeve inside accommodates most 13" laptops and tablets to keep them protected from the wear and tear of going places. Interior mesh pockets, including a stealthy zippered pocket, provide a secure location for pens, passport, lunch money and the thank-you note to mom you’re planning to finish. A handy exterior pocket opens via a moisture-shedding, reverse-coil zipper on the top flap. With a carrying handle and lash straps to hold a bike lock. Made from 13-oz 450-denier 100% polyester ripstop (50% solution-dyed) with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
  • Light and strong polyester ripstop with highly weatherproof TPU laminate
  • Main compartment houses one drop pocket, one mesh pocket, three slots for pens, and a discreet and secure zippered pocket; a zippered flap pocket closes the main compartment with a moisture-shedding reverse coil zipper
  • Webbing strap holds your bike lock
  • Interior sleeve holds tablets, small electronics and most 13" laptops
  • Fully adjustable shoulder strap
  • Top-mounted, reinforced haul handle
  • 13-oz 450-denier 100% polyester ripstop (50% solution-dyed) with a TPU-film laminate and a DWR (durable water repellent) finish. Fabric is bluesign® approved

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

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 Mini Messenger 12L is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect sized, daily commuter Perfect commuter bag! Positives: - Sturdy, strong bag that I am able to use without fear of having to baby. - roomy, with great compartments for Laptop, lunch, books, bike lock, and everything else! - Love the padding. I used to have a Chrome Citizen bag that was great, but lacked padding so anything that was remotely sharp, or jagged would drive into my bag. This bag solved this. - Strap is easily adjustable and not overly complicated. - Works well when on my bike! Room for improvement: Not much to say here except maybe a water bottle slot & the possibility to better secure bag when on my bike, as it does move around a bit sometimes!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size, Perfect Bag My backpack was far too packed, so I purchased this to offload some of my notebooks and my laptop. I fit 4 medium sized notebooks, my 13 inch laptop + a thin case, and my small pillow into the bag. It is a perfect bag for someone who doesn't need too much space, but rather a comfortable, convenient carrying bag from class to class. The only downside is the lack of a cushion for the strap, but it isn't that big of a deal

Rated 3 out of 5 by from They should have changed the name! This is probably the first item i ever purchased from Patagonia that caused a disappointment. I was aware of the fact that they changed a lot on the design compared to the previous version of the bag. Especially in the belt/strap department. I was not sure to purchase it after that but found a clearance sale on REI and though to give it a try. The bag is still great in terms of the material and craftsmanship quality you expect from Patagonia, but the change of the belt/strap construction & features does totally take "the messenger" for a bicycle out of it! It became much lighter and much more packable then the old one, great for traveling, but as i said if you need a true messenger bag (hence the name of it!) it fails and slingers sluggish around. I also like to mention that the lack of a shoulder cushion on the 12L version is a downer and the one on the 24L is so not snug and moves and twists around rendering at useless like on any other fashion bag that has the same subpar construction, the old cushion especially on the 24L one was snug as you can wish for and stayed always in place no matter how heavy the load and crazy your ride! Please Patagonia either roll back to a messenger bag style belt/strap construction or rename the bag, it is misleading if you need a messenger bag for daily bicycle riding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terrific Purchase! I bought this bag a month or two ago. It is the perfect size for my daily on-the-go needs. I can pack it with work supplies, glasses, water bottle, kindle, and gym clothes and it could still fit more. I have a bad habit of overpacking my bags for the day and then carrying around too much weight. So I appreciate the smaller scale of this bag. It is also water proof. I go outside a lot for work and I don't have to worry about my things getting ruined.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Black Hole Mini vs Old Mini Mass I miss: backside pocket, padded shoulder. Good size

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Mini Messenger Bag Great shoulder bag. Like the description states, this is a smaller version of the black hole messenger bag. If you want tons of space, get the larger black hole. If you want something smaller, then get this one. It fits my laptop, binder, charger, wallet, water bottle and some snacks. Keep me from hauling too much around. The shoulder straps are thick enough to even out the weight. Perfect for a SMALLER messenger bag.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from comfort and size concerns Was so excited to receive this as a gift after looking at it online for so long! That being said, there is no shoulder barrier for the strap so it does rub and make my arm sore. Also a little small for my computer, but a pretty nice bag. Would need to make strap design adjustments.
