Hold that rope.
Great rope bag. Holds a 70M rope with ease. This bag is exceptionally nice when it's sprawled out as it keeps your rope clean. Not much more you could ask for in a rope bag.
Best rope bag out there!
I can't believe I never reviewed this bag...I've had it for about 2 years now and it's one of the best rock climbing purchases I've made. When I ordered it there was only green in stock, and once I got it, many of my friends wanted it but it was out of stock. So I think I might have bought the last one in Backcountry's inventory, and it's never come back since... I wonder if Metolius stopped making it? That would be a shame. First and foremost, the backpack straps are the best thing any company can put on a rope bag like this. I can put my 70m rope, 14 draws, climbing shoes, flip flops and a harness in this bag, cinch it up and its a reasonably small package that I can toss on my back for longer approaches. And it still has extra room if I need it. The built in tarp is a great size and the rope pocket is awesome, makes for quick and easy clean up if you have to leave the wall in a hurry.
Can this rope bag hold a 300' rope?
Can this rope bag hold a 300' rope?
I haven't tried it myself, but it has plenty of extra space after my 60 meter. Like enough for a harness, rack and extra gear.

Any chance on getting this in another color? I really like the bag but I'm not crazy about this design(I know I shouldn't care but I do). I have seen it elsewhere in a variety of colors.
Every where that I have seen this particular bag its been this one design and no other options.
There are like 4 different color options on Metolius' website and they do have online shopping on their website. I believe the bag sells for about $46.00
But if you're not too picky on companies check out C.A.M.P they make a really great rope bag as well.
Two for One...
This bag is the best, no question. I have two, and used them on every climb I have ever done. They work as a storage bag, carry bag, rope tarp and even use them as a backpack to carry a 2nd rope for long repels. It even has a place to keep your keys. Very well made and very lite. You cant do any better for the price.
I toyed with the idea of getting a rope bag for a long time...I'm so glad I did! It keeps the rope clean and together (especially for dropping a top rope climb), the ground tarp keeps the rope out of the dirt while belaying, and the tie loops make it so easy and quick to just throw the rope in and move on to the next route! I've used mine for about a year now and it's held up great. Recommended.
Holds a rope and then some.
Out of all the rope bags on the market, I thought I would never find one that suited my needs until I found this one. It has a very generous ground cloth that keeps the rope nice and clean, has two tie off points so you can flake the rope and use it as soon as you open the bags and a nifty little window in it so you can see which rope you have stored in there. It comes with a smaller pocket on the outside which will hold a knife, roll of tape and a protein bar (or whatever you want in it). All and all a great bag for what it is and quite durable.
Rope Ranger = Complete Ground Coverage
The Rope Ranger with my climbing partner. Never have to worry about a dirty rope again . . .
The best rope bag
In my opinion this is the best constructed rope bag on the market. The fabric is very durable, the buckles are solid, and the stitching is top notch. After 5+ years of use it is still in excellent condition.
Whats the difference between this bag and...
Whats the difference between this bag and the step down from it, the Metolius Ropemaster Bag?
When you compare the 2 bags on http://www.metoliusclimbing.com/ you will see that the major difference between the Ropemaster and the Rope Ranger is that the Ranger has 2 shoulder straps and has 2 more liters of carry space, otherwise everything is essentially the same. I hope this helps.
- Dual padded shoulder straps allow backpack-style carrying
- Zippered accessory pocket
- 1368 cu. in. (22 L)
- 1 lb. 4 oz. (567 g)
- Single padded over-the-shoulder carry strap
- 1224 cu. in. (20 L)
- 1 lb. (453 g)
The Ranger rocks--not only does my 60m Mammut Galaxy fit in the bag, but also 12 DMM Shadows. The synch straps pull it all together. The two shoulder straps make the bag easy to carry, whether over the shoulder or as a backpack. The attached 4x5 tarp keeps your rope clean! Excellent bag!
Throw it in the bag...
I love this bag. It makes life so much easier. No more coiling and throwing the rope over your shoulders - just throw it in and go.
Makes life easier..
Got the rope bag after climbing with a friend that had this. Its so convenient keeping the rope on the tarp and then just stowing it away wrapped up into the bag. Fits my 60 m rope perfectly. Way more efficient than carrying a bulky tarp or just slinging the rope on your shoulders. Good investment!
Metolius Rope Ranger Bag - 1368cu in
This bag rocks. I put my Beal Edlinger 10.2 in it and fits great. The shoulder straps that make it a backpack are a must have. The 4x5 tarp is plenty big for a 60m as well as a 70m rope with plenty of space to get your rock shoe on with out getting dirty. A must have for any rope.
how big is the tarp?

Two shoulder straps = two thumbs up
It seems like everybody had the old Metolius rope bag - the one with the single strap. And that was really the biggest problem. "I got the rack, you get the rope" used to be my favorite thing to say, because the rack, no matter how big, was in my nice comfy backpack, while the other chump was stuck carrying the rope awkwardly over the shoulder, swinging it around on scrambles, and having a sore back by the time we got to the crag. Well, this bag changes all this, and there's no going back. They added a second strap, so now it can be easily worn as a backpack. As far as durability, this bag is just as bomber as its predecessor. It also now has a rubber-coated grab-handle that's centered at the top end, and I'm surprised by how often I use it to handle the rope while packing, handling gear, or rearranging the car. A great ropebag that will outlast many a rope, and If you see it on SAC - it's a no-brainer!
Slickist thing since snot
This bag is great! The two shoulder straps make it super easy to carry to and from the crag. The two compression straps and drawcord make it easy to jam in all my extra tidbits, I can fit my harness and a good sized sport rack; plus chalk bag, lotion, hand sanitizer, band-aids, sun screen and tape. Granted I bought a little eagle creek travel organizer to hold the last several items, but they all fit. But the best part of this bag is the rope tarp it's self! The two end tie off and roll up tarp make putting my rope away the easiest part of cleaning up! I truly love this bag.
