Summary

Great for multi-pitch climbing, allows me to carry a headlamp, emergency blanket, and a couple snack bars.

Pros

  • Nice storage options
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • The small sling used to connect it to your harness means that it rotates easily and may not be where you expect it when you reach for chalk

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.

The chalk bag part of it works as expected, although if you overfill the other pockets, it gets a little tough getting your hand in.

My only minor complaint is that the sling meant to attach it to your harness is a little thin, so the chalkbag can spin a little bit, especially if your harness is loaded up with gear, so sometimes the chalk isn't where you expect it to be when you reach for it.

Experience

I've used this chalk bag when multi-pitch climbing for a couple years. I've probably used it on a few dozen separate occasions.
