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

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!

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.

Big Tarp, well Built

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My buddy has the BD Super Chute so I figured I would get something different. This thing is built with some sturdy materials, for sure. The nylon on the bag is pretty thick and seems indestructible. The tarp is enormous, and the compression straps work well with the heavy buckles. The draw cord around the mouth of the bag does feel a little flimsy which surprised me, but it hasn't broken or anything. Shoulder strap is comfortable, but I have been loading it into my backpack if there is a longer approach. Glad I bought this over the Super Chute.
Pictured is my 60m 9.8mm rope on the tarp waiting for the next lead.

There's a reason it's Best Selling

great tarp with different colored loops to tie off your rope ends. buckles don't break, and the straps cinch the bag tight so you can fit it in with the rest of your gear.

The benchmark

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This bag blows all others out of the water. I've used quite a few friend's bags and none of them cinch up as nice as my Metolius bag. Be the envy of your friends with this bag!

The best rope bag

I ordered this rope bag when I ordered a Metolius Monster rope. I returned the bag only because I returned the rope. I ordered this bag because I have seen it in use many times at the local climbing area and have always been impressed with it. I am a Black Diamond fan, but this rope bag is much better than my Black Diamond Super Chute. The Metolius Ropemaster is made out of much heavier nylon fabric than the Black Diamond Super Chute. A rope bag is a rope bag, but prices being equal (the BD is actually a buck or 2 more), this is a much better bag--no comparison.

Great Rope bag with an amazing Tarp

This easiy holds my 70M Energy and 12 quickdraws. The windows on the tarp face outward so you can have multiple bags and tell which rope is in it. The tarp is expansive providing space not only for the rope but for other gear and a place to shoe up.
