Review 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: mgoodro, 2005-04-04

I ordered this online on clearance; it was the cheapest I could find. I ended up with a red velvet one, which I would have never picked, but I like how soft it is. The size is perfect for my long, thin hands, even with a Metolius Chalk Sock. However, the bag is difficult to cinch tightly and still puffs chalk when closed. Also, the loop on the back is too long and narrow to clip a biner into so I'm forced to used the strap.

Update: The lame elastic pull cord gave out after a few months of use. I replaced it with some accessory cord and now I can actually close the bag tightly.

I got the purple velvet one, how could you go wrong. Found it to be a great size, and my hands are the same size of most men I know. My problem: the velvety material is soft enough that the palstic that makes the stiff rim of the bag has poked through. Fortuanally the plastic is bright green complimenting the purple well. I have climbed with it like this for 5 months, and its not getting any worse. Would have given it a 3.5 if I had that option because of this problem, but opted for a 4 because I figured that a different material might not allow this.

it is a bit on the small side, especially since i have small hands. doesn't hold much chalk, and doesn't close very tightly. the new chalk sock that i got had problems fitting in. and my hand definitely didn't fit in after that.
