Patagonia Black Hole® Gear Tote Bag 61L

December 30, 2020

Never knew I needed such a big tote, no looking back now!

This tote is big, big. And I love it. I thought it would live in my car as a place for all the things that roll around to live, but I use it for literally everything now. Can easily fit 6-7 gallon containers of water, which equals like 3 peoples surf stuff and the whole families MTB gear.

Great for lugging gear to the ski hill

We love this extra large tote bag! We bought one to throw all the hats, mitts, goggles, helmets, boots, snacks, and little toy trucks that my family needs to take to the ski hill. Large straps make it easy to sling over the shoulder with a baby on the hip and toddler in tow. We love it so much we just bought one in another colour to keep wet and dr...

Room for all your gear and then some!

Love this Black Hole tote! The large capacity worked perfectly for organizing (swallowing up) gear in the trunk for a long weekend of hiking/car camping here in the PNW. I do think it would be a bit cumbersome, even as a bigger guy, to haul around as a more daily carry. But as for keeping gear organized on the way to the trails or ski slopes or in ...

THE bag

This is the best giant bag youll ever own, I use it for everything! Sturdy, GIANT, one pocket so you dont lose ur keys or phone. I can throw all of my gear into this bag in the car, in my house, and it controls the chaos.

Super Roomy and Super Useful

This was the perfect "junk" bag to hold all those loose, bulky items you need on a long trip. I used it on a 7,500 mile hiking, camping, road trip. It worked perfectly to hold stuff for meals and other random camp bits like frisbees, dishes, growlers, fuel tanks, etc. Super durable and it only seemed to get better as the trip progressed. ... Read MoreSo glad I bought it, and the smaller size as well. Together they held everything I asked them to.

Beautiful Big Bag!

I love tote bags because you can see everything and this one can hold A LOT! I have the smaller gear tote, but this one is great. It's big, and a little heavier than the lightweight black hole gear tote, but it holds more, and I love the little clips to keep in all of the sporting goods gear we have to lug around. I wish there were more colors... Read More!

Love it!

So much to love! As with all the black hole bags, the fabric is easy to clean and durable. This tote is awesome because it stands straight up, with a big square opening, and I can throw items in with ease and most importantly I can see everything inside. Handles are good length, I can carry comfortably on my shoulder or by hand. I travel to our cab... Read Morein every weekend and this is my new go-to bag! Fear is my husband will turn this bag into his hip wader/fishing gear bag. Please bring back more colors so I can buy more!

The Big Bag

I never thought I would be rating a bag but what a nice surprise this has been. I use this bag primarily for fishing. It is so nice to be able to huck my wet, muddy boots and waders into the bag until I get home, then I hose off my boots, waders, and the bag. It cleans easily and is bomb proof. Thank you!

Best everything tote!!

With a quick shake to get out sand, this goes from my go-to beach bag with kids toys, towels, etc right to my mountain gear bag! Definitely the best bag that I have purchase! It will continue to be my everything bag for years to come. It is quite large, but is not bulky when it is only 1/2 full.

Throw everything in it and take off!

Youre not gonna find a better tote for big, awkward items. Got this to carry snorkeling gear for two people, which includes 2 full wetsuits, 2 sets of fins, 2 masks in cases, 2 snorkels and 2 sets of neoprene booties. Everything fits perfectly and to keep it from getting unwieldy, Patagonias included the clip straps that keep the bag closed without... Read More having to jam everything in. Its just like having ratchet straps to secure everything inside. Not much more you could ask for with this! And will last a lifetime. Much better than a gear specific bag that only has one use - this can be used for anything!

Best snow sport bag!

This is the best bag-bar none-for carrying your ski/snowboard gear to the mountain in the back of your car or suv - and then wherever you need to go-ski or snowboard boots can go on the bottom with no ice melt or mud getting in the car and you can fit your helmet, goggles, ski pants and jacket and other gear and still carry it easily!

I got this to carry our family bike gear which is often muddy. It fits lots of helmets and shoes and can easily be cleaned.

“The” bag

This bag does it all. I take it on road trips and on the boat. It packs laundry, clothes, picnic lunches, beach outings, groceries and everything, then folds away to nothing. You will need more than one.

If you’re considering it....DO IT

this bag is amazing, my girlfriend and I named ours Lizzie. It’s down for any adventure and won’t disappoint. Build quality and look are what you’d expect from Patagonia. Very compact when empty and a weekends worth of gear can be put into it no problem. Buy this bag.

Good, but Needs 2 Improvements

Great bag but I’d like to see a zipper added to close it for use in crowded cities and more zippered pockets on the inside.

Best large bag!

Held 4 blankets, 3 coats, and lots of small items. Plus, waterproof! Great bag for carrying lots of things!

Love this tote. It's huge and can carry a ton. Used it for two pairs of ski boots and clothes, food and beverages for a day on the boat... you name it. Awesome bag and cool looking.

The carry ALL gear bag!

This bag is awesome. Big enough for a crew's worth of bike helmets or pfd's. The straps across the top to keep things contained and tuck easily out of the way. The handles are stout and easy to carry.

Room enough to stand in it!

So much room and love that I can change in/out of my waders or wet suit. Exactly what I was looking for!

gear tote

best bag i have ever purchased. I wish it had a zip top closure however. Very good for going to the beach, going on a road trip etc.

Perfect Fishing Bag

I've been using this tote to haul waders and boots around rivers. So far it is the perfect size, you can step in and out, straps to cinch it all down, great fishing piece. Very versatile

Perfect bag for weekend roadtrips or car camping

This bag works perfectly for the reason that I purchased it: loading up the gear I would need for a weekend climbing/camping getaway. The fact that it stands upright means that you can leave it open in your living room and just toss gear, clothes, food, etc. into it as cross items off of your packing list. It large enough that it just eats up gear.... Read More The adjustable straps keeps things secure for when you walk the bag to car. The fact that it stands up also makes it easy to find what you need without having to take the bag out of the car (or trunk). The only thing that I would add is an internal zippered mess pocket on a side wall to hold magazines, but otherwise this is exactly what I was looking for.

Big Sturdy Tote

As advertised, large, well-built tote that can handle anything you throw into it. Not one you would take to the grocery store, however. Pretty heavy duty sized.

The Ultimate

Handy to put stuff in and get stuff from. No pointless zipping and unzipping and compartments just chuck everything in. Put smaller bags in it if you need sub-organization. Any trip not on a plane I will use this, and still bring it folded up because it’s so light and use it once I get there (the new bigger size just came out but I’ve been wanting ... Read Morethe bigger one since using the small one for a while now). Very durable and water resistant. Stands up open on its own. Oh and it’s 100% recycled. Patagonia is several steps above the rest.

"Fantastic bag"

I have 6 of the smaller bags, and use them all the time for so many things. I got one of the 61L bags because in this case, bigger is better, I have put firewood in it as well as tons of towels. I took one to my local hot springs and it work great to change in. This is a must have for parents, campers and anyone that likes to be outside doing stuff... Read More. I will end with saying that, when you purchase this bag or anything else from PATAGONIA, you are making a difference for all humans on this planet. I am not a paid Patagonia rep, however I love the planet I share with with everyone else, we can all make difference.

Great Big gear tote

I have been using the 25 L tote for the last year as a quick gear bag, this larger tote is handy for organizing longer trips with more gear. Love the fact that it is made with recycled materials!

August 22, 2019

great, multipurpose bag

We love this bag! Great size, as its super large, but the lightweight material and flexible shape give it a feel of not being super large. We've had it a couple weeks - it appears to be great quality to last a long time.

Wader bucket

The perfect bucket for dropping in all my wet stuff from the river. Big and love the inside straps to hold it together.
