Functional, but not exciting

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked this up on sale, and while i love everything La Sportiva, this one is a fairly plain interpretation of the chalk bag.

Pros - Good size - holds a chalk ball and fits a hand no problem; black goes with everything

Cons - Material and logo feel a little on the cheap side

Note i had no issues with the drawstring opening and closing as per the other reviews.

For the money, i prefer other chalk bags.

Not my favorite

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this thing when I first started climbing, and make a whim decision to purchase this one because I thought "La's gotta' be good." More than anything, I was just excited to stop looking like a newb that was stealing chalk from whomever would talk to me.

Well, I still have the thing. It holds chalk, like it's supposed to, so it's got that going for it. But the drawstring almost always gets caught on the inner fabric, making it near impossible to open/close without doing some crazy engineering work. Which, let's be honest, no one has time for.

Wouldn't purchase again, sadly.

Not an easy closer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like the size of the bag, and the overall build quality is good. The only problem I have is that the inside fabric tends to get caught up in the drawstring when I'm closing the bag. It gets pulled through the eyelet, preventing the bag from closing completely. It's fixable, of course, but it's a pain that I have to use two hands and carefully close the bag so I don't lose chalk.


    One thing that is not mentioned about this bag, is that it comes with a bag belt. That is, it comes with it's own small, self clipping, bag belt so that you can wear the bag around your waist and switch it's position on your body from behind to the side or the front with a flick of your arm. This is very helpful in case you need to have your back to the wall and you don't want your chalk bag getting in the way of your butt.

    Great, high quality bag, no frills, no spills.

    Looks awesome, I've always been a fan of the La Sportiva black and yellow. Does it come with a belt?
