Black Hole Mini MLC - Smolder Blue
An updated design for a Patagonia classic - a smaller version of their iconic Black Hole MLC and built with recycled materials and a recycled TPU laminate.
This is a travel-savvy, soft-sided 26-litre backpack that quickly converts to a duffel or a shoulder bag to keep you moving on any mode of transport. Meets the strictest of carry-on requirements so you can travel with confidence. A great choice for an over night travel bag - and if you need something larger, have a look at the full size Black Hole MLC.
Built with recycled materials and a recycled TPU laminate, the Black Hole Mini MLC is designed for shorter trips or aircraft with tighter carry-on requirements. A large main compartment with two interior pockets for organisation, backed up by a dedicated space for tech storage that fits most 16" laptops, with room for documents and cords. Three carrying configurations allow bag to be used as a backpack, a shoulder bag or a duffel, and all straps tuck away when not in use. A padded, stowable hip belt takes weight off the shoulders in backpack mode and doubles as the shoulder strap in briefcase mode.
External lash points and compression straps accommodate even more gear and can be used for other carrying configurations. The bag is also roller case compatible, with a wide webbing loop on the back panel acting as a haul handle or can be slipped over the handle of rolling luggage for easier movement through airports.
