Mammut Multipitch Chalk Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars Great for multi-pitch climbing, allows me to carry a headlamp, emergency blanket, and a couple snack bars. This is a great chalk bag for multipitch climbers that don't want to carry a backpack. There is enough space in the back pouch for a headlamp, 2-3 snack bars, and an emergency blanket. Additionally, there is a bungee cord on the bottom that allows you to strap on a light shirt or packable windbreaker. Clip a water bottle to your harness, and you're all set to go fast and light without a backpack. Full review

La Sportiva Laspo Chalk Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars This climber’s essential has all of the necessary features of a chalk bag, at a great price point. This chalk bag works well for any type of indoor or outdoor climber, whether bouldering at the gym, or multi-pitch days on a big wall. When it comes to knowing a product will perform flawlessly, people reach out to a small handful of brands. La Sportiva is certainly one of these elite companies, handcrafting products in northern Italy for outdoor enthusiasts since 1929. Although footwear for climbing… Full review

Arc'teryx Aperture Chalk Bag

rated 4 of 5 stars Great bag, got it secondhand and it works well. Like how there's no drawstring to break. Works well, I've used it for about a year secondhand and have had no issues. Used it inside and outside. Holds a decent amount of chalk.  Full review

Arc'teryx Aperture Chalk Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars Best. Idea. Ever. This simple chalk bag is terrific for those who are tired of chalk always spreading over everything. One quick twist in the direction of the embroidered arrow and it's perfectly sealed. Despite this it is still a well sized chalk bag and I have never struggled to get my hand in or out. I love this piece of kit.  You cannot remove the web belt. So if you prefer to clip it to your harness you have to either snip it off or awkwardly bundle the webbing. Full review

Crawldaddies Knee Pads

rated 5 of 5 stars Crawldaddies Knee Pads are some of the best cottage industry caving gear on the market. Made by a caver, for cavers, CD Knee Pads are rugged, comfortable, and worth every penny. I mistakenly purchased the short knee pads, and while I wish I had bought the longer version to better protect my shins, I have been entirely satisfied with the quality and durability of the short pads. For far too many years, I relied on standard volleyball knee pads for my caving adventures. While these cheap pads spare… Full review

Hanchor Kangeroo & Hula

rated 4 of 5 stars Kangaroo - 8 / 10 This bag is a cool new concept and works well, but the bedding in part was a little timely. I would recommend this be on every sport climbers wish list. Hula - 7 / 10 I admire the innovative design of this product and I like the theory behind it. However, I don't think it works as well in practice as I expected for a small chalk bag, the concept would be better applied to a boulder bucket. I'm psyched to see where this design trend leads. "Made in Taiwan" It's a label that doesn't… Full review

Mammut Basic Chalk Bag

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The name says it all. A basic, bare bones chalk bag. This is one of the cheapest chalk bags you can get. Good for beginners climbing indoors. As the name implies, it's basic. The outside material is a lightweight nylon (Taffeta 260T) that feels like one of those ultra lightweight running jackets. It's soft, but it feels sort of durable. If you're climbing indoors, this will suffice, but if you're outside, you might need something stronger. The black fabric easily collects chalk and has faded to… Full review

Black Diamond Chalk Bag

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An easy to use chalk bag that has multiple ways to attach it to your belt loop or harness. When I started climbing this was the first chalk bag I bought. The first thing I was drawn to were the various colors that Black Diamond offers in their bags. Who doesn't like a little style and personality on the mountain? I personally attach a carabiner to the bag and then to a belt loop or to my harness. The only real drawback I have with this chalk bag is the small opening to allow your hand inside the… Full review

Mad Rock Koala Chalk Bag

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A generic looking chalk bag shaped for max chalking room and chalk holding. A chalk bag is a chalk bag. Aside from color preference, there's reality no personality. BUT. The thinner top and wider bottom leaves room for an entire block of chalk, and the closure system is easy to close and reliable. (In other chalk bags I've seen: a lot of threads break, the sack moves out of the closure loop, or the springy-thing breaks.) I use this in my sport climbing competitions, and it works completely fine. Full review
