Patagonia’s recycling initiatives gets a big push this season with its latest Black Hole collection. Ten million plastic bottles were used in the construction of the bags, which feature 100% recycled webbing and body fabric. The collection features a bag for every need, whether that’s a day pack, a duffel, or luggage The recycled ripstop fabric has a weather-resistant TPU-film laminate and a DWR finish, which makes for a great material for travel. One piece that caught our attention is the 40L Wheeled Duffle Bag, which is a spacious, lightweight carry-on perfect for those weeklong journeys.
