Does its job. Great size. Fits a decent amount of chalk. Usually I just have a sock in there. I've accidentally kicked it over a couple times and its kept the chalk in. Construction seems sturdy enough to last a while.

Worked great

I really like this bag, carries a lot of chalk, the closure completely seals it, and the pouch on the side is big enough for a few items. Lining is soft, but there is no brush holder. Unfortunately after 6 months the plastic cinch broke, so now there's no guarantee it'll stay closed. Gonna contact Metolius and see if I can get another cinch.

Holds Chalk

Simple as that... which is exactly what I wanted. It's not tiny, not too big... It's big enough to fit a chalk ball in there and both hands... It does close pretty tightly and it has that nifty transparent pocket for rings and stuff. I've used it for about 2 years day in and day out.

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend who also wants something that holds chalk.

love it!

first off, it closes all the way!! no spilled chalk at all. its pouch is great for an ID or gym card as well as storing a couple emergency dollars for food or drinks. plenty of space with my chalk sock and loose pow in there. construction is super sturdy too. definitely happy I invested in this puppy!

Great Pod!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use this chalk pod while bouldering. I have purchased other Metolius chalk bags and they were too small. I do have bigger hands. This pod is perfect for my hands and holds plenty of chalk. The pocket in the back is perfect for my phone. I recommend this Chalk Pod to anyone.

Love the size

To me nothing is worse than a chalk bag that's too small and impossible to get your hand into, which is why I love this bag. It's wide and deep enough to chalk your whole hand while not being too open so it spills chalk everywhere if you take a fall. Would definitely recommend for someone with larger hands.

Super cool.

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

  • 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!

  • 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.
