Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole Pack 20L

Patagonia Ultralight Black Hole Pack 20L

“This pack review first appeared in the 2020 Gear Guide, now on sale at bookstores and fly shop nationwide, and also at osgnewsstand.com". 

The problem with some packs is that much of the weight and the bulk is the bag itself, not the contents. That’s not the case with this 10-ounce Ultralight Black Hole Pack that more than pulls its weight when you’re traveling, fishing high-country streams, or hauling stuff to and from the skiff. When it’s empty, this entire 20-liter backpack reverses into its own internal stuff sack about the size of a restaurant burrito. You can take it anywhere. The top-loader is made with tough 100% recycled nylon with a 100% recycled polyester lining and has a drawcord closure and a handy micro daisy chain top so you can fold the pack down very small if you’ve got just a few fly boxes and you’re not using the full 20 liters. The light and breathable shoulders straps also have an adjustable sternum strap. $80 | patagonia.com
