Keep your hands dry and keep the mess down with the Metolius Chalk Sock.

The Metolius Chalk Sock provides a quick and easy alternative for climbers who don't like loose chalk spilling all over the place when they climb. This item also fits in well at gyms that don't allow loose chalk. The Chalk Sock keeps your hands just as dry as regular chalk, but it won't spill all over the place when you fall.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wasn't highly impressed. I spent a while trying to work the chalk out thinking it just needed some encouragement but its just not a very good sock. I had better luck when I refused to pay for a sock and stole my older sister's stockings to make my own!

Keeps Chalk in Bag!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My gym strongly recommends a chalk sock, and I wound up with the re-fillable version here. I get best results with the sock fairly full, but as others have noted, you still get way less chalk than just having it loose in your bag. It's enough for my needs, but I also don't sweat a ton. The chalk also doesn't go all over everywhere when you drop or forget to close your bag, too, so that's a plus.

great for the gym

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I agree with Jane below that you get minimal chalk out of this sock, so i end up adding some loose chalk to the bag as well. Gets my around the gyms rules i guess so I'll give it 4/5. Loose is still the way to go if you can get away with it.

Gotta work it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

So I've had chalk balls before and they are great but this one was not my favorite. The sock is not that porous so you get little chalk. The chalk is not that easy to break up. You really have to work the ball to get anything out of it at all. It's good for what it is but I think I'll stick to loose chalk.

Chalk balls have their place

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

First I'd get the refillable chalk ball and after you drop a ball in your bag follow it with some loose chalk. I have found that it works best when it is less than half full and the older the better because it will bleed the chalk better when you squeeze it. This is the main reason I like the refillable ones better. When trad climbing, I don't care for having a ball because it makes it harder to dip the back of your hand. These have their place in the gym or face climbing.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used to hate having to use chalk balls because I had a crappy refillable chalk ball that was some other brand and it sucked to refill and always dumped out, between Metolius Super chalk and having the refillable version of this chalk sock you can't go wrong, not nearly as messy as loose chalk which is why the gym I work at makes you use chalk balls instead of loose chalk, the bag opens and closes easily. A good deal, I would suggest going with the refillable compared to the normal one.

refillable is great

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought the refillable style of this chalk sock. It has your standard draw cord to open and close. I agree with some of the other reviewers with regards to keeping a little bit of loose chalk in your chalk bag to help get your hands sufficiently coated when needed.

A must

Got this as a gift and i've had it for the past year. I can't stand when people blow chalk everywhere, just a little does the trick. Stick this in your chalk bag and when it's time to go give it a couple squeezes. Another option is have just a little loose chalk in your bag if you like a little extra. Also this product could be replaced by a sock if you're broke, and for that reason I give 4 stars.

Good but Save Some Cash

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love the idea and use it all the time!! But I am a huge penny pincher and I use leotards and just cut a section off and use it to do the same exact thing!

Use with Loose Chalk

Chalks socks are great. I don't think they're the best by themselves, and I don't love loose chalk by itself. I keep a full sock in my chalk bag so I have something to grab, and loose chalk to help coat my hands.

This sock only gets 4 stars cause it's not refillable.

Responded on

They have refillable available, just need to select it and pay the extra $.50.

Chalk Sock

Does the job for the gym. Is holding up well to weekly climbing.

Works as expected

Like Natalie said, there's no substitute for loose chalk, but this is a great option where loose chalk isn't allowed.

Great For Gym Climbing But Not Outside

This gets just enough chalk on your hands and helps keep the gym air a lot fresher but nothing is better than sticking your hand in bag on loose chalk. If you're going to get one of these, get the refillable one. It'll stretch your dollar.

Great chalk sock! If you are looking for one, don't look any further! And plus, it's refillable! So now you can save money and from throwing away socks.

Grab your Ball

I love chalk socks, they give me the right amount of chalk on my hand, and of course the refillables get a lot more bang for your buck!

not as good as chalk

i like getting a lot of chalk on my hands and it didn't seem like this got the job down maybe if i give it some small incisions here and there it would work better but it doesn't do the job as expected.
