Chalk Bags

Chalk bags come in all shapes, sizes, colours and styles but they all do one thing, carry chalk. Chalk is used to remove sweat and give added adhesion to climbing holds and is used by climbers of all levels. We recommend the around the waist type bags as they are easy to climb with and don't get so easily misplaced. We also suggest using the 'chalk balls' rather than loose chalk as it's less likely to spill out of the bag in those dynamic manoeuvres.
