I shopped and shopped and shopped (continue “and shopped” 30 times) for a quality chalk bag that was very basic in design. Read tons of reviews, and finally settled on this one. I’m pleased to say I couldn’t be happier. The black and grey design was exactly what I was looking for. I’m typically climbing with black/grey/white clothing, with grey and black shoes, so it doesn’t stand out like an eye sore. I’m a guy, I don’t really care about being fashionable, I just don’t know what stand out like a sore thumb. Aesthetics aside, it really is a quality bag. Strong stitching, the draw string pulls the opening shut tightly (no leaks), and its just the right size that I don’t feel something slapping around every time I make a somewhat dynamic movement. I don’t bother using the belt that comes with it, I use a non-locking carabiner instead…. so much easier when top roping…. and I don’t keep it strapped to me when bouldering. People have complained about the belt, but I see it as a cheap solution until you can get a carabiner for it.
Overall, couldn’t be happier.
I bought this as my first chalk bag for rock climbing and have been using it on the climbing wall at my school. The belt strap is ideal for bouldering and the cut off tie that prevents the chalk from escaping does a good job. However the same cut off tie tends to get in the way a bit when chalking up especially when pulling my hand out. I found a point on the wall where I was chalking up and was having difficulty getting my hand out of the bag and back onto the wall to continue. It may be because my hands are rather large, but I have used some of the Black Diamond bags that they provide at the wall and have not had any issues with taking my hand out of the bag. I like the convenience of the strap, but not being able to pull my hand out all of the time makes me uneasy about this bag.
