For alpine climbers, river guides and ski patrollers, schlepping gear is in the job description. Thats why they choose our Black Hole Duffels. Made from waterproof fabric and equipped with water-resistant zippers and seams, they will protect your gear from rain and rough handling. The U-shaped lid allows quick access to the main compartment, while two zippered internal mesh pockets keep small items organized. The padded bottom panel adds structure and helps cushion the load when your duffel gets the baggage-handler treatment. Carrying options include removable, padded and adjustable shoulder straps, webbing handles with a snap closure and haul loops at either end (to link multiple bags). Four daisy chains let you lash additional gear to the outside. A zippered exterior pocket holds the stuff you need to access quickly. Made from 14.7-oz 1,200-denier polyester (50% solution-dyed) with a TPU-film laminate and a Deluge DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
