I am looking for a chalkbag that can hold a headlamp, knife, and granola bar. I am not sure if there is anything out there now that does this. I dont like having stuff in my pockets or too much extra junk on my harness. Any brands out there that yall know of? Chris90

Madrock Kangaroo . It probably won't fit a granola bar but would accommodate a gel, small knife and small headlamp. Jason Halladay

I have 3 chalkbags with zippers and will not even accept a chalkbag free if it doesn't have a zipper. I feel real strongly on it.

The ones with the biggest pockets are the Metolius Stash and the Red Chili. The Metolius is the best both for dipping chalk and storage but does weigh more. Pass on the Red Chili as the chalk migrates to the pocket. I don't put an Mp3 player in there but found it annoying as hell. I have 2 headlamps, a knife and a lighter in the Stash all the time, with room for a small snack If I want to stuff it in for a long route. Like real small snack:-)



Interesting that Metolius no longer shows the Stash on their site......

You'll feel like an idiot dropping $40 on a chalk bag; I did. But I've been through 5 chalk bags and this is the only one that I've liked. Easy access to the chalk, your hand won't snag - good-sized zipper pocket, opening that cinches completely shut - try it, you won't regret it. Austin Baird

Now that the Metolius Stash is no longer in production, can anyone point me to a chalk bag with a large zippered pocket? Kai Larson

Trango 40 cal. Doesn't have a zipper, but it has a Velcro pocket that is pretty good size and is secure- ive never had a problem with it. In addition, the bag is a great size and closes securely. Finally, and best of all, it is only 15 bucks, so you don't feel ridiculous spending a fortune on a small bag. Nobleman

Mammut Togir Chalk bag. It's awesome. I fit a small knife, a mini-headlamp, lip balm and a granola bar in there easily. I've even put an apple with cheese with the granola bar in there (along with the knife, headlamp and lip balm) for big summit days. The key is that it stretches. $23 on backcountry backcountry.com/mammut-impact-... Anfarwal

Arc'teryx makes one for about 35. Or find a local dry cleaner/ seamstress. And see what it would be to put a pocket one your chalk bag now. Tip: if you have to clean out your chalk bag for what ever reason go to a car wash place ( after you emptied residual chalk out ) and vacuum it out. I used my vacuum at home one time and it always seemed to spit chalk every time I started it. Capt. Impatient

In response to this thread and at the request of another MP user I prototyped a new model with what I'd say is the largest zippered pocket on the market.

It's kind of like the Metolius Stash in that it's situated at the bottom and runs the full back half of the bag. It's also lined with a fluorescent green liner.

Let me know what you guys think! I'm always up for constructive feedback!

+1 for TUFA chalk bags.

Quality workmanship, quality bags!



A zippered pocket is a MUST for all climbing essentials.

Find one with a decent sized pocket to carry only the essentials on your ascent.

Mathias I think I am actually going to design a little bag that would slide onto the chalk bag loop and sit next to your chalk bag. I'll post some stuff a little later.

Check out the CAMP Montagna - biggest pockets on a chalk bag I have ever used. Two monster pockets that could each fit all of that stuff in one.

For what it's worth, I have tried to contact you to get a bag months ago through your facebook page, your website, and through PMing your mountain project account in order to try to get a bag. You didn't respond to any one of the three separate ways I tried to contact you.

As much as I like supporting the "little guy" and whatnot, I wouldn't bother trying to get from TUFA if you, ya know, actually want to try to purchase a bag.

Shoo:

I had a hiatus with TUFA through an internship and part of school. During this time I was still answering business emails, usually within 24 hours.

I apologize that I don't recall ever receiving a PM. It may have went to my junk box or I simply may have just missed it. If I simply missed it I apologize for the lack of professionalism.

If you would still like to cooperate on a custom bag let me know.

Cheers,

Josh
