C80 Chalk Bag

The C80 is a burlier chalk bag in the entire collection of climber dippers from Arc'teryx, and despite its durability, it's still light and packable for longer approaches to multi-pitches high in the alpine. The Double Weave fabric offers a four-way stretch so you can pack it in bags full of trad gear. The included belt has a bottle opener so you can leave yours at home on multi-day treks.

  • Durable yet packable chalk bag built for rock climbing anywhere

  • Fleece lining retains chalk so it doesn't fall out easily
  • Pull-cord provides a well-sealed closure
  • Included belt has a bottle opener

Only a little bummed

Got this chalk bag because I didn't want the same as my friends and this thing is sweet! The material it's made if feels so nice! I am disappointed on two things however. The pocket is bit big enough to fit my phone, whish I know isn't what it's for but hey. Also it has a built in belt rather than having a spot to hookup a belt or carribeaner of your choice. I am please with it though and it's pretty cool!

Not the most durable, the best access

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

All chalk bags are the same right? For most intents and purposes that that is correct, but how a chalk bag maintains it's structure so you feel confident the opening is accessible in a pinch makes the biggest difference. This chalk bag holds it's form exceptionally well given the hard synthetic material holding up the back and bottom of the bag, then the hard plastic ring at the top keeps the opening wide and open. I've given this product 4/5 because although I love my C80, the hard plastic broke from traveling around in my chalk bag for a year and a half. It doesn't compromise how useful it is, but i'd imagine it limited the lifespan. EDIT: bought another one because I'm an Arc'teryx fanboy apparently and just like this chalkbag too much to work with the broken rim.

Great for large hands!

Purchased for my husband who was perpetually unhappy with other chalk bags due to the clash between large climber paws and small bag openings. This product solved the problem - he can quickly and easily chalk up mid-route without fuss.

Nice Chalk Bag

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

I use this bag bouldering, so I seldom use the belt. Considering a lot of the reviews say it's great for big hands, I actually thought it would be a little bigger. I'm not complaining, as it works great for me, just an observation. Love the orange as it's less likely to get mixed up or left behind at the gym.

Chalk up with ease

This is a good chalk bag. The size is nice for those of us with larger hands. It just makes it easier to get the chalk in general too. So far so good, I like it.

Best chalk bag for big hands

I've owned a handful of chalk bags over the years. This is the best one I've ever had. The bag is big, which is helpful for those of us with large mitts. I'm able to easily fit my hand into the bag and give the ole chalk ball a good rub. The best part of this bag is that it has a plastic ring inside the mouth of the bag which holds it open nicely. This is invaluable for chalking up while on a hard route. You don't want to fuss with trying to get into your chalk bag for a dip of chalk while your hanging from a sketchy hold. This bag makes chalking on route a cinch. In addition to all that the zippered pocket on the back is great for holding your phone and the bag closes tightly to prevent chalk leaking out in your pack. Include the great waist belt that it comes with and you've got a fantastic chalk bag.

Excellent product / warranty policy

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought this maybe 5 years ago? It hasn't changed. It is the best chalkbag available in my opinion. It has a huge opening and is bigger than the other 'one-handed' bags, but just as light. Yes it is expensive - but I had mine snap recently against my back and a rock (the hard plastic ring that holds the opening wide) and Arcteryx is sending me a new one, so if you consider the life of the product, it is probably cheaper than other chalkbags that you'd have to replace.

Great besides the belt

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

This is a really great chalk bag. Its size is great for someone with big hands or even for a couple people to boulder off of. It holds a ton of chalk. The only downside to this bag is the fact that you have to cut the belt to take it off and use it with a carabiner for a harness. Otherwise, it is a great bag for chalkin' up with.

Changed the way I climb

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I used to have difficulty while chalking up on a route; getting my big sweaty mitts into a small floppy chalkbag was just not worth the hassle. Enter the Arc'tryx C80 Chalkbag. Now I can chalk up effortlessly whenever I want. The rigid brim keeps the entrance to the chalk-cave open, and the upper nylon fabric allows my hands to seamlessly glide towards their powdery glory. The pocket is also great for chapstick, car keys, or something of the sort. Just be careful when climbing in chimneys! Smoosh this chalkbag and it will be permanently deformed... a sad chalkbag indeed. Ben brabinowitz@backcountry.com 801-746-7564

Well Done Arc'Teryx

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

Arc'Teryx makes great quality products and this bag is one of them. It looks great and feels great and will last a long time. The opening to the bag is large so it is great when you need to quickly chalk up. I love the zipper pocket so I can put other items in there. Love it!

The big one!

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

So I've had a few chalk bags. This is the only one I love. I mean there's not too much to it. It's a bag and you put chalk in it, right? Pretty much? But! I don't really like chalk bags that I have to mess around with to get my hand in them. I love this bag because it has a huge opening and you don't have to be hanging from a 5.14c fumbling behind you to chalk up. (note: I do not even come close to climbing 5.14c?) It cinches up fine and doesn't leak any chalk. It has a pocket on the back that zips up but I don't use it for anything. The plastic part that holds the belt is actually a bottle opener! I mean when you summit after a long day of climbing and want to drink that warm summit beer this thing works perfect. The belt works as it should. Nothing fancy about that. All in all. This thing is great. Holds an absurd amount of chalk. Big opening to fit hands of all sizes. Except maybe like Shaq's?That dude has huge hands?

Great size, better than c40

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I bought the c40 a while back, and I have small hands, so it's worked really well, no complaints. I passed on the c80 originally because I thought it would be too big. However, I got a deal on one for $20, and decided to order. Turns out I like the size more. It holds more chalk, cinches up better, and isn't ridiculously large like I thought it would be. The pocket on the back is super nice, and it's typical arcteryx quality. Highly recommended, if you can find it on sale. Probably not worth the $40, but definitely for $20

brush holder and zip pocket

This is an old BD D-shaped biner in the pocket. The pocket is large enough for a new roll of tape. I never use the brush holder but look it's there!
