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
  • 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 4.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great City Bag I bought this bag for a trip to Paris. I didn't want anything big, just enough for a scarf, umbrella and camera, and this worked great. Back home it's the right size for bringing my lunch to work without looking like a goober!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I bought this Mini Black Hole bag for my personal bag ( purse ) for travel. It works great.The size is perfect so that you can't over stuff and make too heavy. I have larger messenger bags but then I have a heavy bag to carry around. The zippered compartments, the velcro and fastners keep every thing in place. I attached a Hydroflash 12oz water bottle on with a carabiner so that my hands were free. Love this bag

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and very well designed. I carry it everywhere as the Mini Messenger is secure, durable, and doesn't get in the way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome bag! I bought this bag to specifically carry camera equipment. It is fantastic. Adequate size for a DSLR camera, three different lenses and extra equipment. Durable, water-proof, comfortable shoulder strap, and with secure fasteners and velco, this bag has the volume, construction and protection I need to comfortably and confidently carry camera equipment 12-15 hours a day in all weather conditions. Totally reliable!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does what I bought it for Bought this bag to carry my Surface and other notebooks while traveling for work. Safe to say it does its job. Not going to carry a full size laptop but will carry a tablet or Sueface fine. Fits great under the seats on the plane and has enough pockets to stow what you need. Only thing I wish it had was a removable shoulder strap when you wanted to just carry it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Adventure Messenger! This is a nice all weather messenger. With a decent outdoor commute to work, I wanted a weather proof bag to transport my laptop and such. I have found the fabric to very snow and water repellent. Living in Tahoe, the bag has done plenty of moisture repelling in the past month! I purchased this bag, shortly after purchasing the Patagonia standard Mini Messenger 12L. I had assumed that this Black Hole Messenger 12L would be the same as the standard, just with different fabric. Rather, it's utility design more similarly matched that of my decade old Half Mass Messenger. It is also quite a bit bigger than the standard Mini Messenger 12L, though also listed at 12L in size (see photo). Things I like about this model: - Truly weather proof exterior - Decent storage capacity for a small bag... I was able to fit 13" laptop, wallet, glasses, gloves, and even my puffy jacket! - Seatbelt style strap is lightweight and not cumbersome to use (though, it does absorb rather than repel water) - Love the color! There were also a number of features in this bag that I found designed specially to accommodate the more adventurous outdoor user but created nuisance everyday use: - no easily accessible outside pocket - very stiff fabric that makes the bag more difficult to use and slips off of surfaces - velcro flap closure that gets caught on clothes and furniture (same as older style Patagonia Messenger Bags but not present in the newer standard Mini Messenger 12L) - belted computer sleeve gets in the way of everyday use, though would be handy if you tilt your bag upside down often (similar to my comment above, this feature is present on older messenger models) The items above are not negative per se but rather are listed to create additional guidance when choosing one of the wonderful Patagonia Messenger options... this particular model is a good bag for its purpose and is clearly the "adventure" model, with features and capabilities designed for rougher, outdoor travel. Personally, I most prefer the layout, pockets, and such of the standard Mini Messenger 12L. While the Black Hole version meets my outdoor rain and snowy needs very well, I don't see myself using it everyday. Patagonia posts great product videos and such on their website. I encourage everyone to look at them a bit more closely. If I had done so, I would have known before purchase about the idiosyncrasies in this design that I don't prefer. That being said, it is a great adventure bag, and I will hold on to it and use during inclement weather environments, like our current Tahoe winter;)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looooove it! Love ❤️ It's the best messenger ever! There's only a couple of things to consider. first the size Because it's small and maybe not everything will always fit. And the fact that the outer plastic layer is a bit delicate and scratches easy! Other than that it beats by miles the messenger from Chrome!
