    It's a classic for a reason.

    DMM's Classic Rope Bag gets all your climbing essentials to and from crags, faraway walls, and the local gym. With a 31 liter capacity, the Classic can store one 80-meter rope as well as draws, harness, and shoes, or you can fit two 60-meter half ropes and more gear with careful packing. This backpack converts into a messenger bag by removing one of the shoulder straps and attaching it to the front. This is extra convenient when you have an extra backpack with more gear.

    Made out of PU-coated ripstop, the bag and its integrated tarp protect your gear from light rainfall and the wet ground. The integrated tarp is large to make sure your rope doesn't touch any dirt, and tie-in points prevent the rope from tangling up on the approach. A secure buckled closure makes it quick and easy to pack everything up, and compression straps keep your gear from moving around while hiking. DMM added a zippered top pocket for electronics and other valuables.

    Just stuff it

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

    I got this bag for me and my boyfriend's sport climbing gear. We can fit our coiled 70 meter rope, both harnesses, 2 chalk bags, 12 quick draws, 2 carabiners with belay devices, a basic anchoring system, and our climbing shoes. The zippered top pocket can fit snacks, phone, keys, and other small personal items. The backpack straps are cleverly designed so that they can be converted to a duffle style carry if desired. My only minor complaint is the lack of a sternum strap and waist belt that would be nice for load bearing on longer approaches.

    Just stuff it

    Best Bag Ever

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love this bag. Use it for the gym and the crag and everyone comments on how nice it looks. Feels great even when loaded with gear and a rope. Very happy with it

    Good Bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got this to hold my 10.4 60m. Overall, this is a great rope bag, if you just want to carry your rope. There's not a whole lot of additional space for the rest of your climibing gear. There is extra space, but it's not ample and there's no inner organization options. It comes with a nice large tarp inside and is easy to stuff and cinch down with the strap system.. I do love the sling strap capability as well for when I'm carrying 2 bags at the crag. Also, nice little pouch on the tope outside to throw in keys, phone, snack, etc...

    I wish it had some extra space, but that's on me, probably should have just gotten one of their larger bags. This bag is as advertised and does what it needs to do well.

    Awesome bag and awesome company!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this bag! I have had it for at least a year and have used it regularly. I love the versatility of the backpack and shoulder sling option. I really wanted a bag that I could carry as a backpack to make it easier for hiking into the crag. Sure its not the most comfortable for long hikes, but the backpack option makes the long hikes doable. Super easy to switch the strap and hop around from route to route with it in sling style.

    The removable tarp option is awesome too. You can leave it attached, or unattach it and just take the rope to the next route instead of having to drag all of your stuff. The tarp is a great size and is really durable. I carry a 70 m, 10.2 mm rope and some extra gear. My rope is pretty big but I can also fit in a harness and a set of draws/carabiners/atc etc. Its a little tough to fit all my stuff in because my rope is so big, but the compression straps on the outside are also great for attaching stuff to.

    The company is also amazing! This is my first product from DMM, but I am a believer. The product is great, very well made and super innovative ideas. I did have a buckle break (though I don't know why, leave it to my boyfriend) and I emailed the company and they sent me over a replacement buckle right away. Great customer service! Great product! Buy this bag!!!!

    Super Comfortable and Plenty of Space

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love how comfortable it is as a backpack. I've taken it outdoor climbing about 15 times and I take my 70m rope, two harnesses, chalk bag, 12 quickdraws, daisy chain, climbing shoes, external phone battery charger, music speakers, tape, and a knife. Plenty of room.

    Let's multipitch.

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

    DMM is by far my favorite climbing company. This rope bag just proves that they know what they're doing. I invested in this because of the padded shoulders and the ample room in the bag for multipitching. I like that if i need to, I can take the tarp out and put it with my other climbing bag. The only thing I think this bag is missing is a chest strap. I fix that with a sling and a biner though!

    Great sport climbing bag!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Absolutely love this bag! I fit a 70 m. Rope and two harnesses. It is Also able to fit 14 quick draws, And an assortment of belay device's with locking caribiners. The tarp could be just a tad bigger, but overall it is a good size. The shoulder strap can be moved to make it a great duffle bag. It works great when packing another pack of gear. Straps are easy on your shoulders when using it as a back pack.

    Love it!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this to use as a gym bag instead of using an old backpack. It has been everything I wanted. The size is perfect, it fits two pair of climbing shoes, chalk bucket, and my harness easily. I highly recommend this product!

    Exactly what I wanted!

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

    This bag is awesome. I just got it and have used it several times. I keep my 70 meter rope and harness in it and they fit with room to spare. When I head outside I know the rest of my gear will also fit. It would be nice if it has some places to strap stuff to on the outside. It doesn't look like the type of pack that you'd want to have if you had to hike for a while. So far I really like it.

    Great Rope Bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This rope bag is great. It fits my 70 meter rope easily and the shoulder straps are super comfortable. The rope is easy to get in and out and the large detachable mat makes it easy to take the rope from climb to climb. It would be hard to fit any extra gear with a 70 meter rope, but I bet you could fit a fair amount of gear with a 60 meter. It would be nice to have room for gear, but other than that, it's perfect.

    Good design

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

    I loved the design of the pack , the duffle style opening and the straps to hold it all together which turned it into a duffle, but I always felt like i needed more space. I could fit my 70m rope, shoes, harness, 10-15 draws, a jacket and some food but had to be creative for it to all fit with the zipper closing. The tarp that can come off is great. The lack of waist or chest straps doesn't make it good for hikes longer that 15 min when your carrying all your equipment though. Also you have to be care full when placing it on the floor cause all that dirt gets on your back.

    Perfect Sport Climbing Crag Pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    There are only a few things I dislike about this bag. It's darn near perfect. First of all I wanted something with a vertical zipper and rope tarp that carried like a backpack and there weren't that many options. This fit the bill. I can fit a 60 m 9.8, 10-15 draws, harness, shoes, water, food, guide book, etc. if I pack creatively. I love that the pack has backpack straps, but can also be switched to duffel style carry quickly and easily. If the approach is long, but the climbs are close together I hike with the backpack on, then to move from climb to climb I just throw the duffel strap on and carry it that way. I do wish that the straps were a little more heavy-duty and I wish there was a waist belt, but the quality is top notch and it's super comfortable for 10-15 minutes of hiking. Internal gear loops would also have been nice. Other than that a couple liters of extra space wouldn't have hurt. This bag is awesome for sport climbing though. And it's way more affordable than the BD or Patagucci alternatives.

    Perfect Sport Climbing Crag Pack

    Great bag!!!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This bag is a good size for sport climbing. Not sure how it would fit a trad rack....looks like it would be a little small. But I haven't tried. Quality construction, simple, and the rope tarp is removable....which is awesome!!!! Overall great bag. I would buy another!

    Best bag out! Period!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this bag months ago because of how large it is, has tarp and is able to get extremely small with all the gear in it. DMM makes phenomenal products and this one is a must. I bought it in green so it is bright at night, plus its my favorite colour. I can fit the following in the bag with zero problems:

    climbing shoes
    12-18 quick draws
    ATC/gri gri and tons of biners
    5 slings
    60m mammut 10.0 rope
    chalk bag
    2-3 bags of chalk
    first aid/medic emergency kit
    and other misc. stuff such as tape, protein shake and the usual 5-10 clif bars

    and I still have enough room to fit much more stuff. The buckles are great, it is comfortable with good padding on shoulders, highly durable and does absorb or soak with water. Cant beat the price especially when its on sale. Great buy and a must in my opinion. I have tons of complements and people interested in it when I go to the local gym and crag.

    It's a Classic!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The bag itself is really well designed, especially with multiple compression straps to help you compress your gear to the smallest size possible before you hit the trail. Further, it is quite roomy in that it fits my 70 meter rope, my harness, chalk bag, and about 20 quickdraws. The one feature I have found to be incredibly nice though is the tarp. It is large enough for 60 and 70 meter ropes with room to spare and it is removable. Thus, with this bag, long gone are the days of dragging all the gear you brought up around just so you can move your tarp.

    The only true down side to the bag is the lack of body straps to secure it to your person as you hike about, thus making it less than ideal for longer adventures. Therefore, this pack is great and has some incredible features but it is best suited to roadside cragging and shorter approaches. It is definitely a rope bag worth checking out though especially at such a great price!

    First Climbing Bag...Great Choice!

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

    Got this as my first climbing bag so I don't have much to compare it to, but I will say my initial impressions are good. The design is great, especially the backpack/shoulder bag option. The tarp is unattachable by a velcro piece which is great if you wanna shake it off or clean it. As far as fitting gear, I fit my 60 meter rope, two harnesses, eleven quickdraws, climbing shoes, chalk bag, and some other various small climbing items. Was pretty full but could probably fit in a few more gear items and stuff it to the brim. The bag wasn't too heavy filled with all my gear, and packed down smaller than I expected.

    The one downside, I don't think it'd be the most comfortable for very long strenuous hikes in, but then again I wasn't expecting it to be as I read that in a review elsewhere. But the straps are lightly cushioned and would be fine for a light hike into a spot.

    Overall I'd recommend the bag, it has a functional design, and is definitely aesthetically pleasing. For anyone like me who does top roping and sport climbing on the weekends and just needs something to carry all their gear in, then this bag is for you. The price is definitely right and we'll see how it lasts. I'll update as it gets use.

    Hi there, just wondering what the actual dimensions of this bag is when full? Trying to figure out if it would be considered a carry-on, or small enough to be a personal item (to fit under a seat) for a flight. Thanks in advance!

    Hey Monica,

    While I don't have exact dimensions of the bag, both my roommates do have this bag. If completely filled I don't think you'd be able to fit it under the seat in front of you but you would be able to put it int he overhead bin.
