No one likes to carry everything in their hands. No matter what you are doing you always have something on you that needs to be stored. Be it on the way to the bakery, the office or the local crag, it is unimaginable without a bag to carry your bits and bobs. And since there are so many different uses and therefor different bags we want to try and clarify some of these variations and what to look out for when buying a bag. 

The first question you should ask yourself when purchasing a bag is what do i primarily want to use it for and how. much space it should provide. A light weight jacket for example will take up more space than a smaller, yet heavier laptop.

Here is a short list of suggested use:

  • up to 10 L (max. 5 kg): walking, city
  • 15 - 25 L (max. 8 kg): day trips hiking/bouldering/climbing with small baggage,
  • 35 - 45 L (max. 12 kg): multi-day trips (hiking), extended climbing tours, Alpine tours, ski tours
  • 45 - 65 L (max. 18 kg): extended trekking tours, traveling
  • 65 L and more (max. 25 kg): self-sufficient trekking tours, expeditions, extended round trips

What type of bag do you need/want?

In the climbing world at least there are three main categories of bags you can use, rope bags, shoulder bags and backpacks. Like the name suggests it the rope bag is necessary for transport of your indoor / outdoor climbing rope. This bag doesn't have many other functions, the tard should be included and ideally have coloured edges to attach the two ends of the rope to avoid a knot. The shoulder bag is handy in bouldering, such as the Moon Boulder Bag, it has enough space to fit the necessary gear such as shoes, water bottle, chalk bag, brush and a snack. The backpacks are available in many different sizes and therefor have multiple purposes such as described above.

  • Rope Bags

    A rope bag does not only serve as transportation method for your long outdoor ropes, but also protects them from dirt and abrasion. Here is a quick guide on what to look out for when purchasing a rope bag.

    Most rope bags are made of Nylon, a super robust material allowing you to put down your rope bag anywhere and still protect the rope. There are two types of carry system when it comes to these bags, one classic backpack design with padded shoulder straps that allows you to carry your rope comfortably on your back. The other design is more of a shoulder bag with a padded strap, this system is handy should you already be carrying a backpack. 

    Furthermore, rope bag designs vary from simple ones, just designed to carry and protect the rope to more advanced designs including zip pockets, removable tarpaulin, waterproof coating... These better designs come in handy if the rope bag is the only bag your taking to the crag. The shape of the bag also plays a role depending on how you prefer to pack your rope. Do you fold it, in that case you want a tubular bag or are you the type to stuff the rope in the bag, in that case a round bag is advantageous. 

    Another detail to watch out for are coloured rope end loops that help prevent knotting and tangling of the rope.
