Patagonia has once again raised the bar on sustainable gear production. Their new Black Hole Duffel line body-material is made from 100% post-consumer recycled materials while maintaining their legendary durability. These bags have been our go-to luggage when flying with our fishing and camera gear, and once again we can feel confident that we are reducing our environmental impact by purchasing this gear.

From Patagonia:

This season’s Black Hole collection used 10 million plastic bottles to build the 100% recycled body fabric and webbing of Patagonia’s most well-loved travel bags. Every Black Hole bag is incredibly durable, water-resistant and backed by our Ironclad Guarantee. You can check out each and every one of the 25 new 100% recycled styles here.  Extracting and processing virgin materials takes a toll on the land, water, and air. To do its part, Patagonia is moving toward 100% renewable and recycled raw materials.
