We’re always in pursuit of good quality, practical, versatile backpacks that will serve you well in a variety of situations, from hiking and camping to commuting and traveling. And we found the one that fits the bill – the Patagonia Black Hole 25 Daypack. Let’s start with this backpack’s best feature – its size. This is a 25-liter backpack which can hold just about anything you might need for a short trip, an outdoor adventure or the gym – clothes, water bottles, laptop, yoga mat, towels…
The Patagonia Black Hole Daypack is water resistant and will not let you down even in the wettest of weather. It’s made from durable ripstop polyester that’s lined with a water-resistant TPU laminate. Instead of the usual lid, it has a bucket-style opening with a small, zippered drop-in stash pocket. There are a few other pockets too – the large main pocket can carry a 15-inch-laptop, an inner mesh pocket with a key keeper can hold a cell phone and miscellaneous other small items, the side pockets can stretch to accommodate water bottles of various sizes, while the zippered front pocket is great for storing items that you need to access quickly. If you want to use it to store your fitness equipment, there are chain lash points with which you can secure a yoga mat, and even a skateboard.
The Patagonia Black Hole Daypack is comfortable to wear thanks to its padded should harnesses, sternum strap and a simple webbing belt. Visually, this backpack combines the modern aesthetic with alpine ruggedness. Its dimensions are 21 x 11 x 6.5 inches, it weighs 1lb 8oz and comes in four colors -Black, Aqua Stone, Underwater Blue and Classic Red.
