    Perfect for a bag within a bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you generally use a bigger pack for all of your gear and need a great rope bag and tarp for *just* your rope, this is perfect. Friends are always amazed at how small I can pack down my 9.5 70 m. It's basically a compression sack for your rope, with the added bonus of being a crag bucket and tarp. I find the strap system odd, but with some practice, I've gotten over it.

    Awesome bag

      Surprisingly a lot of room for such a small bag. The tarp provides enough space to lay out my rope. It would be nice if it had some outer pockets to store some extra gear if you wanted to use it as a bag on its own.

      The best

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love this bag, I will never buy any other rope bag for my climbing ropes. Packing is easy, just flake onto the tarp, grab the 4 corners and drop it all perfectly in, can even handle a 70m with no issue, made to fit into the Arcteryx Miura pack. People see mine and ask what it is, when I tell them I have a 70m rope inside they dont believe me, thats how small this packs down.

      great bag

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This is my first rope bag. I use it for 60m 9.5mm rope.

      This bag is another fine example of Arcteryx quality, functionality, attention to details:

      - packing/unpacking takes seconds

      - perfectly fits into backpack

      - has a strap to carry between climbs

      Yes, I would recommend it to a friend

      I've only owned this bag for a month, but everywhere I've climbed people have stopped me to check out the Haku. So what makes this rope bag great? Lets start with packability - Featuring a roll top closure, this guy gets my 70 meter rope nice and compact allowing me to get it into my 35 liter pack and still have a little room left over. The design is really neat, allowing you to simply pick up the corners of the tarp and the rope drops down the middle right into a bucket for easy transport/cleanup, all while keeping it flaked. The internal carrying strap makes carrying the bag from climb to climb a breeze. The tarp could stand to be a little bigger but is enough to get the job done. And as stated in other reviews, a bigger tarp would mean a loss in packability.

      I'm having a bit of trouble when it comes to flaking the rope. I have a 70m 9.8 rope. When I put the rope in the bag via grabbing the corners of the tarp and allowing it to fall in the bag it seems to fold on itself so when I pull it out on the next route it snags a bunch. I always end up re flaking the rope out which kind of sucks because that defeats the purpose. Have you encountered this at all or have a certain system of flaking it on the tarp?

      Hey Mike, I have encountered that issue with my 70m rope. I kind of had to play around with it a few times (My 70m is also new so I hooked up a draw and flaked it through like 50 times so the rope wouldn't knot on itself, which helped quite a bit) but I've found that if you have the tarp laid out, start flaking in the middle of the bag and let the rope create kind of a wide but longer range of space(I hope that made sense). When you pick up the corners of the tarp and give it "the shake" to drop the rope into the bucket, it shouldn't fold over on itself and the end will be on top. As long as I remember which tie in is the top I've been good(I always use the opposite color tie in for the top end)

      Best option for putting in a backpack

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      If you're looking for a rope bag to put inside your backpack, your search is over. No other rope bag fits inside a backpacker better.

      Pair this with a Miura 45 backpack and you're golden. It also fits into a Miura 35, but it won't leave you with very much extra space.

      Even if you don't want to put your rope bag inside your backpack, you should still strongly consider the Haku. As people have mentioned below, the bucket style + roll top design is pretty fantastic.

      If you're looking for the largest possible tarp, the Metolius Speedster and Rope Ranger both have slightly bigger tarps. But keep in mind a larger tarp means these other rope bags don't pack down as small as the Haku and I find the Haku tarp plenty big.

      Hey Mike, I picked up the Haku and Miura 45 and find the Haku to be a bit of a tight fit into the pack. Do you normally put your rope at the bottom of the bag, or towards the top? I find I have to slide the bag in sideways (top and bottom of the rope bag facing the back and front of the pack) to make it fit, do you find you have to do it this way as well?

      I do agree that the tarp is plenty big, most of the folks I climb with have bags with smaller tarps and their ropes wind up all over the ground, didn't have that problem with the Haku. I also like the tie-ins - I'll tie one end to the red tie-in, flake the rope onto the tarp, tie the other end to the green tie-in, and shake it into the bag. Never had a problem with the rope getting tangled, and I have yet to need to flake the rope out of the bag before running up a route.

      Good Bag

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      So far, I've only been using this in the gym. As expected, the past 2.5 months of 3 days a week climbing hasn't made a dent in the way this thing looks or functions.

      I wish the tarp were a bit bigger as it would make it easier to keep the rope on the bag when pulling it down.

      I've also found that i tend just grab the bag via the tarp and carry it that way as opposed to actually packing it back in when quickly moving from one wall to another in the gym, it manages this just fine except that i occasionally find myself tripping over the straps, i kind of wish there were a cleaner way to keep the straps closer to the bag (when the tarp side is up, the straps for closing the bag are towards the ground).

      Overall I'm happy with the purchase and would recommend to others.

      Ingenious Bag

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      The Arc'teryx Haku ropebag is perfect for hanging out around the crag. If you plan on moving around, just dumping the rope in the bucket is simple and easy. Fits a 70 meter rope easily and packs down to a nice size to fit at the bottom of a backpack. For your next rope bag, make Haku your choice.

      Return of the king

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      After the discontinuation of the Pali rope bag I was despondant. I wanted a bag that perfectly nested into my Miura 50, but alas there was nothing for me.

      Now that the Haku has come out I am psyched. I ended up getting two of these since my girlfriend also has a Miura 50 and we own a lot of ropes.

      First it fits very well into the bottom of the Miura 50 vertically if you have a 70+m rope in there and horizontally if you have a 60m or a very thin cord.

      The design is ingenious. When you start climbing the rope feeds out of the bag like a rope bucket and once the pitch is done the whole thing sits neatly on the tarp. When its time to move or pack up you just pick up the corners of the tarp and poof the rope drops into the bag via a "trap door" which keeps it flaked and ready to be dispensed once more. The bag also has a convenient shoulder strap so you can walk it over to the base of the next rig with ease.

      When you are totally done just pick it up, the rope drops in, stuff in the tarp, and roll the thing dry bag style. Slick and easy. I'm glad the Pali has a venerable heir.

      Just curious. Has anyone used it for picnics? Seems like it'd be a perfect picnic bag lol.
