Super cool.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Received this in the mail the other day with a bunch of other goodies and took it to our local rock straight away. Quality seems pretty good and ease of access is awesome, really cant complain. The crazy colours look awesome IMO. The clear pocket at the back is great if you want to chuck your gym card or a few other cards in if you need your licence or bank cards for any reason.

Super cool.

Great overall bag

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have large hands, so it can be a bit hard to find a sweet spot between "stretch the bag around my hands" and "chalk goes everywhere". However, this bag makes it easy to tighten and loosen on a fly without erupting a volcano of precious chalk on your clothes, gear, or innocent bystander.

I did manage to flip myself upside down on a fall and the bag did a good job of preventing chalk leakage for a modestly sized opening.

Would recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic bag!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I returned the original because the inside was the inside color wasn't as pictured. I made an exchange and it was easy and painless. I've only had a chance to use it for gym bouldering so far cause of the cold and it doesn't stand up real well on its own but that's not what it's designed for so that's alright. The clear zippered pocket on the back is nice and big and I'm able to fit my iphone in with plenty of room and the zipper seems the chalk dust out quite fine. Big sturdy opening as well is a big plus. Overall this is a great bag with a great price.

Deep and Wide

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When I went looking for a chalk bag to fit my off-width hands, I wanted something bigger than average but not bouldering bucket big. The Metolius Chalk Pod is deep enough for my large hands, while not being hilariously large and heavy hanging off my back while I go up a chimney. The drawstring closure keeps the chalk in the chalk bag, and the included strap keeps it around your waist. The only downside I've found is that a ton of people at my gym have these, so when I leave it somewhere it's not always easy to find mine. But that's what happens when someone makes a great bag!

weird pocket in the back

i really like this chalk bag. i have large hands so it's important for me to find one that i can access easily without fumbling. this bag fits the bill perfectly. the only thing about this i don't like is the flat pocket on the back. i don't dislike having a pocket here however they made it out of a clear plastic material that doesn't seem durable in the least. doubt i'd really put anything that important into a pocket on a chalkbag but still, doesn't seem all that functional. other than that i love the function of the chalk bag though.

Serves it's purpose well

The construction of this bag seems tougher than others that I've used. Holds up really well to getting scraped against basalt.
Also, the fish pattern looks really cool.

big enough

i have pretty large hands and i can make a fist in side and close it. it will hold all the chalk you need i put a block in and there was still room.

Good product

It's a chalk bag, just as simple as that. The strap around your waist works perfectly, it is comfortable to wear, and it is easy to close, without spilling any chalk on the trip to or from the climbing wall. The size is perfect, and I can not see a reason to buy a more expensive bag.

Super Functional ! !

First off, the pocket being on the back of the bag (touching your back when worn) is an awesome idea. Doesn't deform or unbalance the bag like if the pocket was on the side. The pocket itself could hold even an original Ipod or Zune and allows you to switch up songs without needing taking it out and get the mp3 player all "chalky". The zipper/plastic screen seems solid enough to hold up and keep chalk out over time.

Opening on the top is nice and stiff, but is also low profile so you don't have to worry about the rim ever getting in the way of your hand. In fact, when I first used this, I wasn't even sure my hand was in the bag until I felt my chalk sock (not included) at the bottom. So has a wide enough opening that it won't interfere with even medium/ medium-large hands trying to get to in there~!

It's also shaped like \_/ so you aren't going to be scraping the walls of the bag with your fingers either, trying to get the last bit of chalk out. It'll be down at the bottom waiting for you!

Dual straps are key, and allows either a biner or the belt (if you're into that) with ease. If you cant get it to sit right with a biner, rotate one of the loops 180 degrees and it'll keep it positioned better.

Fleece lining on the inside is Ultra Plush, and will probably eliminate the need for any kind of Chalk sock, but is usable with one either way. Drawstring closure is secure as is the clip, closes all the way and easy enough to open when you're ready. Even if it's during a climb.

Size is great, Pocket is bomber, and works perfectly. Oh, and the blue/orange and orange fish colors are baller.

Works great, I do have a big hand (usually XL gloves) my hand fits in it fine, could be a little more roomy but then it would start to be to bulky.

Great bag

I got the checker cross clipper design and it's very well made and stylish, it has a nice big size for my big hands and is very light. The wast strap works as well as anything and the bag is very comfortable for me to put my hand in, I've tried some smaller bags and they were a pain to use while hanging on the wall. I would recommend this to a friend, it's just a chalk bag not too much can be done wrong.
