    Simplicity at its finest.

    The Mammut Ophir Rope Bag is basically one large, rugged mat that you can easily roll up and buckle together, making it one of the simplest rope bags on the market. Its design makes it as compact as the rope itself, meaning you can pack it up and take it on faraway climbs much more easily than most rope bags. The shoulder strap makes it easy for your belay buddy to carry the rope while you haul the rest of the gear to nearby crags for a quick session.

    Simplistic Design

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I am thrilled with this bag, it is simple and rugged. It easily will fit 80m ropes and hasnt shown any significant wear after 2 months of being strapped to the outside of my climbing pack. The only down side I have encountered is the integrated tarp could be a bit larger.

    I love this rope bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    It is really good at being a tarp that carries the rope simply. It is also really light and packs quickly.

    It's a bit awkward to carry, but so are all single shoulder strap bags. If you're going a short distance, I don't think that matters. If you're going further, the unstructured nature of this bag makes it easy to pack into a larger bag. I much prefer it to the Black Diamond Super Chute bag, which I also own.

    Not much of a step up from my ikea bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you're going to spring for a rope bag, pass on this one and go for a proper one.

    The whole design is awkward and not very well thought out.

    If you flake your rope onto the tarp and roll the thing up, your rope is too wide to fit in the pocket, but the buckles are in the right place.

    If you flake your rope into the pocket, and roll the thing up, the buckles have been rolled into the bag and are inaccessible.

    The shoulder straps are at the widest part of the bag, so after you awkwardly have your rope in the bag, the whole thing kinda just flops around awkwardly with no real form. See Austin Robin's second picture below to see how much empty material there is between the shoulder strap and where the rope sits in the bag.

    I would buy 10 ikea bags before I would buy one of these... 10 ikea bags and 3 kilos of frozen meatballs that is... because they cost the same as this bag.

    silver lining: the material will stand up to abuse

    Just flake your rope narrower so it fits when you roll it in.

    If you flake it into the pocket, then just tuck the tarp into the pocket over your rope so you can still buckle it.

    If you flake your rope tighter/neatly (so it fits in) and tighten the straps it should have some structure. Although this clearly isn't a structured rope bag. If you roll your rope up tightly there won't be any empty material. Also an ikea bag will have even less structure because it can't be strapped/tightened.

    I agree that there are better bags for the price (my preference is the metolius dirtbag II) but come on...most of the issues you list are problems that are easy solvable.

    Feels great to carry too.

    This is the rope all wrapped up as we made our way back to the car. Fully adjustable shoulder strap that makes it easy to carry.



    After we finished climbing at the Green Valley Gap in St. George, Utah.

    Feels great to carry too.

    Like treasure from Ophir.

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

    This rope bag did exactly what I expected it to do. It is a compact bag that acts like a tarp so I don't ruin my rope. I wasn't really expecting a lot because of the price and it actually has more features than I thought it did.

    What I like about this bag is that it is really easy to use. You can get the rope out and ready very quickly just by unclipping two buckles and rolling out the tarp. No zippers to snag, not much to go wrong and keeps the rope in the designated rope pocket. The straps are easy to adjust and the shoulder strap is also easily adjustable to accommodate a long haul or a quick rappel.

    It has the two little open pockets that I'm actually not even sure what I will put in there, but hey, you have more pockets to add some extra things. When I find a good use for them I will let you know.

    One little feature that I do really like is the little loop on the inside of the tarp. It is probably used for the rope, but I ended up using it to clip my quick draws so they aren't just rolling around in the bottom of the bag.

    The fabric seems durable, the colors are great and true to the site, and it should last a while. I've only used it a couple times so I can't say much about the durability, but it should do exactly what I want it to do.

    If you are looking for a rope bag that can haul all of your gear and has a very large tarp, this is probably not the bag for you, but if you want a small and simple bag to hold your rope for an awesome price, the Ophir Rope Bag is a great addition to that room full of climbing gear.

    Why, Mammut, why?

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    What a rope bag is supposed to do: All I need in a rope bag is something to roll up my rope and not have to flake it all the time, while also keeping it out of the dirt/traffic/etc.

    This bag kind of fails at both points. The tarp is very small, allowing a messy rope user (me) to definitely end the day with some rope dirt, and the way it rolls up is dumb: You push the rope into the large pocket, then close the tarp over it like a satchel flap, which is terrible for keeping a rope flaked well.

    Look at the Black Diamond Super Chute. It has a huge tarp, rolls well, and is surprisingly light weight. For as little material as this bag has, it is still a medium-to-light weight rope bag. I gave it 2 stars, because it's nothing special, but it still does a basic job fairly okay, and I don't think it'll break down quickly.

    Not sure if you noticed the original product picture, but it appears to show the rope stowed in a manner that has the tarp INSIDE the bag, i.e. folded around the rope to keep the rope properly flaked when stored. Possibly a hint for a better way to store the rope than what you suggest.
