Chalk bags aren’t like shoes or ropes or harnesses. They don’t impact how you climb or perform. And yet … who doesn’t have a lucky chalk bag? You get used to the feel, where it sits, the weight of it, and before you know it, 10 years have passed and you’re still cinching up the same crusty bag. That’s how it is with my chalk bag: the prAna Chalk Bag with Belt. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not the only chalk bag I’ve ever used. It’s just my favorite.
PrAna’s bag is small—although not too small—and comfortable, with a soft fleece lining. It cinches closed with a draw string that has never failed me. And the belt gets the job done. I like that it’s not too big, nor is it weirdly stiff (like some bags I’ve used). It packs down well, and opens back up with exactly the amount of chalk I left in it. I love the color options, which range from bold, modern colors, to neutrals, to interesting patterns.
