Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole 20 Litre Pack

One of the best lightweight packs of the year

Patagonia Black hole Duffel, Ultralight 20 l. pack and Tote

Sometimes, you don’t need your full-on, burly, 50 litre crag pack. The new Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole is perfect for days when all you need is a compact bag to hold your approach shoes, harness, chalk bag, shell and water bottle. It’s a simple top-loader that has a zipper flap for your phone and stretch pockets on the outside for other small items.

It weighs less than a couple of quickdraws. For travel, it stuffs inside its own top pocket. Although the pack is not abrasion-resistant enough to put up with aggressive hauling, its small size loans it to simpler tasks, like carrying personal gear on multi-pitch routes or quick trips to the crag.

Patagonia are proud of their commitment to the environment and sustainable materials and technologies. The Ultralight 20 l is part of a series of bags made from 100 per cent recycled materials including fabrics with the stringent environmental bluesign® certification. In addition to the Ultralight 20 litre pack, The Black Hole range includes the 55 l Duffel and 25 Tote, the latter being perfect for hauling gear from climb to climb at the gym or crag.

If you want a pack that’s light and compact for quick climbing hits on trips or a casual day at the crag when someone else has the rope and rack in their bag, the Black Hole Ultralight 20 l is a perfect, environmentally responsible piece. (MSRP: $100)
