A gift for the rope!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love this thing! If you truly love your rope you need this or a rope bag. This protects it from the ground when flaking it. Protects it anywhere you go. Easy to find each end of the rope. Glad I got it!
Size when loosely closed uncompressed
There is room to add shoes, harness and other gear in this bag if desired. Great for moving climbs.
compressed and ready to hit the rock
At home, I usually re-flake my rope and pull the center out. This allows for a tight package to haul to the climb and leaves the middle where I can find it when top roping with my little daughter.
Top Rope: Clip the middle, loosen buckles and one end of bag... drop the protected rope down. Rap and then unroll everything. Rope stays clean and out of the dirt and water.
fold tarp, toss in gear, move climbs
The way the tarp folds over and the generous size makes this bag awesome for throwing in your gear and easily moving climbs. Unfold and continue.
easy to load, use and move
I have had one Superslacker for well over a decade. While some people prefer other bags, this well thought out CLASSIC has been around so long for a reason.
One plus is how easy this bag is to load and move from climb to climb. The ample room means you can fold the tarp over the rope and toss in your shoes and other gear. Close up and move - unfold when you reach the next climb.
This is also a cool bag for setting up top ropes. With the bag over a shoulder, undo one side of the bag and pull out the middle(I keep it where I can find it) clip it through the anchors/draws and with the rope inside the bag, drop the whole package. The rope stays clean and protected until you rap down and unfold it all.
Many of the great uses of this bag come from it's unique design. It is different from other designs and can be used in a number of ways. I prefer the Superslacker for both top roping and sport routes over other bags my friends use. I recommend this bag to others.
Durability is great. BD makes quality products. I for one like the zipper as well as the buckles. The zipper is a nice feature that you don't have to use when moving from climb to climb if you don't like it. The tarp is not necessarily small; but, another foot larger in either direction wouldn't hurt.
Well sewn. Strong materials. Nothin fancy. Should last a good while. I'll recommend it to anyone.
Works well. Protects well. Straps kind of get in the way, but not terrible to tuck them to the side. Seems to be durable
Just what you need, nothing more
Spartan size and weight make it perfect for the backcountry (just take off the shoulder strap).
Great Rope Bag
This bag has greatly increased the life of my rope. I use it for sport climbing and canyoneering. It's nice because it can act as a tarp for belaying and when canyoneering it can just be thrown off the cliff. It's a must have.
Great Rope Bag

I love this bag, it keeps your rope clean, organized and very easy storage. I highly reccommend it.
My new favourite rope bag
I had previously owned a Kong rope bag that did the job carrying my ropes and some equipment but looked ugly. I got this one just based on how it looked and wasn't disaapointed, loogs good and highly functional and easily stowable on top of your backpack or justn sling it on a shoulder and ur done. Good build and nice material.
This bag is more of a portable tarp than anything else. It is made of durable material and is easy to use. The tarp is easily large enough. Best for local sport climbing with very little approach, the single shoulder strap can be uncomfortable on long walks. I just wish it had another compartment or at least a small zipper pocket for your keys and phone.
Will this bag hold 300' of 9mm rope?
Will this bag hold 300' of 9mm rope?
yes... I have fit two 60 meter ropes in it with my harness, shoes, and draws. It should fit a 300 ft with room to spare, especially if you coil the rope instead of just flaking it into the bag.
My favorite rope bag
I've had many different rope bags over the past 12 years and keep coming back to my Superslackers. The rope tarp size is generous, rolling the rope into the burrito style shape is easy, the compression straps on the outside work easily and, contrary to a few others here, I really like the zipper. I will admit I've had the barrel clasps on the end cinches break but they're easily replaced for cheap. And, to be fair, I use this rope bag more than any of my others; multiple times a week.
My climbing pack is an Osprey pack so the elongated shape of this rope bag allows me to strap it vertically to the compression straps common on Osprey packs. This just works really well for me.
I've used this rope bag for 60m x 10.5mm ropes as well as 70m x 9.8mm ropes and never feel like I'm squeezing the ropes in there. The volume of this bag is very good.
I travel with this thing, as well. Works great for changes of clothes; lay em' all out and wrap em' up, and you have yourself a lightweight alternative to packs and duffels.
This is really a bad, outdated design. You end up with a lumpy mess, the tarp is too small, and it's an awkward size. Get a Metolius rope master
Yeah the zipper is nice once it is done up, but honestly not worth the hassle. Go with the Super Chute instead- buckles are better.
This is a nice bad with a large tarp. This bag can hold your rope, quickdraws, belay device, shoes, and harness. Don't expect to carry this bag on long treks to the crag. The strap is not very thick and cuts into your shoulder a little.
