Patagonia has been quietly making top-notch bags for many years. The North Face Base Camp bags get a lot of exposure, but Patagonia bags have held up well as evidenced by old Black Hole Bags going for the price of a new one on eBay.
Well, the Black Hole Duffel is back. Patagonia had a version out during fall/winter 2009 that I came very close to purchasing. As quickly as they came they disappeared. Now though, Patagonia has released the Black Hole in not two sizes, as they've done in the past, but in three sizes. Seems they've found a fabric/function package that they really like, enough to make three versions and have them ready for all of the spring and summer travel that people do.
I really like the look of the new ones and am considering picking a 90L one up for a coming trip abroad. The price is right and the black is just plain attractive.
