Get It Before Labor Day Weekend—Order With Free 2-Day* by 5pm MT 9/2/15


A classic design remastered.

With the exception of an increased capacity suitable to a 70 meter cord and a redesigned tarp, the Metolius Ropemaster HC Bag features the same time-tested design that made the original Ropemaster the first and bestselling rope bag ever made.

  • Large capacity bag can easily stow a 70 meter cord
  • Drawcord and unbreakable aluminum buckles provide a secure closure and allow you to compress the bag for storage
  • Redesigned tarp keeps your rope out of the dirt and allows for easy loading
  • Rope window allows you to see which rope is in the bag without opening it

GREAT rope bag!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have had a Metolius Rope Master rope bag for years and it's still going strong. The attachments are all very durable. The buckles are convenient and easy to use. The little clear window makes it nice to see which rope you have in there (if you have more than one rope and rope bag). It is a great size...not too big and not too small. I like how you roll up the tarp with the rope ends tied and that it keeps them separate if you want to do that. I have a set of twin ropes in mine right now and it keeps them separate while on/in the bag. I bought this one as part of a group gift for a climbing couple that is getting married along with some other stuff. I always highly recommend this rope bag to friends and anyone who asks. Great rope bag!!!

Your rope is worth it

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Metolius makes it incredibly easy to take care of your rope. Easily fits a 70m 9.8mm rope, easy to unroll the tarp and instantly start climbing if you flaked your rope right, and easy to haul your bag from route to route (or up a route if you're climbing out from a long day).

Don't just think of this as a fancy splurge; if you want to extend the life of your rope and prevent dirt and debris from becoming embedded in the sheath, this bag is a must-have.

Will fit a 100m 9mm rope.

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

Bought this with my 100M Mammut Canyon Static 9mm, hoping that the smaller rope would let me roll an extra 30 meters in. It's a little tight, especially if you're careless with how you pack it, but it fits just fine. The window is nice to be able to tell which rope you're grabbing as well.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I like it. The window to see what rope you have is nice, good colors, good price, good size tarp. Everything's good. Just wish it had some daisy chaining on the side to clip 'biners too, but other than that it's pretty much perfect.

Dare I Say Perfect.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The simple design works perfectly for my rope - the durable exterior, the quick buckles on the outside, the padded strap, the tarp with secured loops. I have no complaints - I bought one for my second rope, and even bought the exact same one when the first was stolen from my car.

Dare I Say Perfect.

Salmon. . .

I bought it for the dramatic Salmon design, and I fell in love with the functionality. It's not minimalist, but it has been thrown around and beaten up and keeps on loving both me and my ropes. Thank you Metolius.

Great Rope Bag in and out of the GYM

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This bag is a great rope bag for managing ropes inside and outside of the gym. It has held up well in granite to sandstone and resists wear well. Buckles and straps are well build and durable yet easy to manage in the gym for quick climbs etc.

great bag, and a huge tarp. The main reason why I like Metolius, is there stuff always feels like it can be put through a gauntlet and it would hold up. Very durable and sturdy bag.

70 meter inside with room to spare

70 meter is inside the bag and as you can see there is more room-I figure this bag could fit an 80 if you wanted!

Best bag for your buck!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a HIGH quality rope bag that folds out into a tarp- this allows a person the opportunity to stand on it to keep climbing shoes clean and sticky before a climb, while also protecting your rope from debris. Super important features in a rope bag that not all of them offer.

Furthermore, Metolius is a trusted name in the industry and they have made this bag with a very durable outer layer. Once while in Yosemite we forgot our rope bag outside of the car and it flipped off and slid down the highway at 45 mph+... I don't want to delve into it further, but the rope and the bag were completely unscathed by the mishap!

A small scratch on the very outside is all we saw and the rope was safely housed inside without a single blemish, though this could have been a disaster on that climbing trip had we not had such a quality bag like Metolius offers!


Its cheaper and really dependable for a rope bag!

It also has the see through window so you can determine which rope you want for a day of climbing without having to open the entire thing up.

One other feature I love is the inner straps so you can tie off your rope ends-this allows you to find your rope end and tie into the sharp end fast and efficiently once you've done safety checks and are ready to move upwards.

Overall, this is my favorite rope bag for many reasons!

Thank you

Love the gear!

Best bag for your buck!

Totes my Rope

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this rope bag! I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to keep their rope organized, clean and easily stored. We have a 70m rope and it fits so well into this bag. We even have extra room to store other thing in there along with the rope. I have to say that it is one of the coolest pieces of gear. Also the tarp that you wrap the rope up in is huge so your rope is going to stay clean! the straps are totally solid and will keep your rope nice and bundled up tight! I can't really find a negative to this bag because even the shoulder strap is great. Did not have a problem toting my rope up any of the approaches we have gone up. If you are in need of a great rope bag then get this one it will not disappoint!

Gets the job done right

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Second time I have bought this bag - I have no idea where the first one went. Very large tarp to help protect the integrity of the new rope purchased for this season. Excellent compression straps as well.

Could be more comfortable to carry but functionally as rope protection and storage, it gets the job done.

Great rope bag. Very durable and reliable. I've had it for two years and have seen no downgrade in its functionality. To me, that's way more important than fancy gimmicks or fabrics.

Excellent Rope Bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Like some others here, I looked at a variety of rope bags, including the Black Diamond Super Chute, and this was the best of the lot.

The Good:
--Big enough for my 70m rope
--Solid buckles, with compression straps that stuff everything down very nicely
--Clear window directly over one of the tie-off spots, making it easy to tell what rope is in the bag
--Adjustable (and even detachable) shoulder strap
--Huge tarp that lays nicely flat
--The tarp rolls up the rope and keeps everything nice and tidy in the bag. Slides into my Black Diamond Speed 40 pack very nicely.

The Bad:
--No longer has a pocket on the tarp for rolling up the rope, unlike previous models. The tarp seems to cover things pretty well, though.
--Only two tie loops for the rope and gear; previous versions had four.

Overall a great bag, and my favorite of the current offerings. Get it and you won't be disappointed!

Does this still have the pocket inside for...

Does this still have the pocket inside for the rope? I saw one the other day with no pocket...

Responded on

It has a tarp inside of the bag. You un cinch the bag, roll out the tarp, place the rope inside of the tarp, roll back up and re cinch. So, not really a pocket, but this bag is a good example of most bags you'll find on the market.

Best Answer Responded on

The current model no longer has the pocket on the end of the tarp that older models had. It also now only has two tie-off points instead of the previous four.

Simply the best

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have tried several rope bags and I think this is the best one available. The tarp is large and I love the way they have sewn it on the bag. The tarp is large enough that I can easily place the rope on it and wrap the sides around it and roll it up and stuff it in the bag.
I also like the metal fasteners over a plastic buckle. This bag will last. The strap is a great length and I can easily carry my rope in this bag and my climbing gear in a backpack at the same time.
