/ Rope bag?
Ideally its got to be big enough to fit in all my gear for a days cragging and be easy access ie one of those zips all the way down the front.
For around £50ish
What do you use?
I have an edelrid rope bag. Just an ordinary thing. £25 quid and I reckon you can fit a short rope, quickdraws and shoes in.
All my climbing stuff happily goes into a Bergahus arete bag which has a buckle on the top of the drawstring bit to hold a rope in place so you can stuff the rest of it full. It doesn't have a zip down the front. Most places do it for £53 quid.
There were some comparison reviews on here comparing a bunch. I think the Arc'Tyrex bag was favoured but is 3 times what you want to spend.
Try this one: I got a similar one from Decathlon about a year ago, not listed now tho
Ive looked at the la sportiva large rope bag and the moon aerial bag. The edelrid one looks ok.
I don't know about you but I don't want to be having to lug all my gear about every time I move the rope from one line to the next at a crag. I prefer a very simple rope bag (Ikea bags are fantastic for this) that I can either carry on my shoulder or stuff in my rucksack if I'm walking any distance.
