Arc'teryx C80 Chalk Bag Reviews:


I have larger hands and before buying an Arcteryx chalk bag I would have to shake my hand out of my bag every time I used it. The best thing about this bag is the tapered opening lined with nylon which makes entry and exit very smooth. The plastic rim stays open and hasn't deformed much even when thrown in a pack. In a pack it doesn't spill or even "puff" chalk out because it closes up super tight. The material is built to last and small zipper pocket is big enough for a full roll of tape. There is enough volume for a handwarmer and plenty of chalk for a day.
Arc'teryx is notorious for having products that I would never buy at full price (or on sale most of the time) because they are just too expensive for what you get but their chalk bags are an exception to that rule.

Great design

The C80 is probably the best chalkbag I have used. The opening has a rigid ring that keeps it open all the time, so you never miss when you reach back. The large opening also lets you do two handed chalking.

The little pocket is really handy as well. I keep some change in there, my gym pass etc. At first I thought the material was thin, but it has lasted me a few years with only slight signs of scuffing, so its unbelievably durable.

The cord cinches down pretty tight, so no stray chalk gets out.

I like to attach my chalkbag to my harness - I guess its more of a problem of my harness... but it was a bit fiddly to get it to sit high enough.

I received the C80 as a gift a year ago and love it. It's not as big as it looks in the picture above,which is good, and I can get my whole hand in the bag. The pocket in the back is pretty much worthless to me, I have yet to use it once. the hard ring at the top also makes getting in and out of the bag easy during your climb, best part of the bag. the belt is easy to adjust and excess can be tied in a simple knot if you don't want to cut it. BUT $40 is a lot for a chalk bag! i can buy a $5 chalk bag, for that reason I give it 4 stars.

My original purchase was the C40 version of this chalk bag. My impressions of the build quality and design of the C40 were great, but the chalk bag wasn't large enough for my hands to get in there quickly and easily. I ended up buying the C80 in Cinnabar and giving the C40 to my girlfriend (fits her hands well).
The C80 fits my hands great, and the cinch does an even better job than the C40 at keeping the contents inside. As with the C40, I love the design with the rigid ring around the mouth of the bag. No more fumbling with a floppy bag to get your hands in there. I would recommend to anyone willing to pay the premium.

I bought the c40 a while back, and I have small hands, so it's worked really well, no complaints. I passed on the c80 originally because I thought it would be too big. However, I got a deal on one for $20, and decided to order. Turns out I like the size more. It holds more chalk, cinches up better, and isn't ridiculously large like I thought it would be. The pocket on the back is super nice, and it's typical arcteryx quality. Highly recommended, if you can find it on sale. Probably not worth the $40, but definitely for $20

Big like you think of Gods as large.

Love this chalk bag. It's well made and after making the belt removable (which took 5 min.) it hangs great on my harness.

Did I mention its giant? It's about 60% larger than the C40 and easily fits any hand. It also has a ring holing it open and quality draw string that actually closes the bag so you don't end up with a car full of chalk (er, at least not from this bag).

The Arc'teryx C80 Chalk Bag is massive on the inside to store loads of chalk and easy access for hand to reach back when you're pumped on a route. This bag is also very strong structurally with a tie down system that stops any chalk from escaping the bag while in your pack. This is the chalk bag every climber should have!

Great bag for big hands.

I climb exclusively outdoors, and like this bag a lot. If you have bigger hands, this is perfect for you. The only downside is the waist strap, I had to cut it off, instead of having a way to take it off and put it back on when you want to boulder.

Very Nice Chalk Bag by Fujifilm

This is a great chalk bag for a few reasons. One I love the size of the bag, second its durable, and third it looks absolutely great!
Logan Rice at REI on 07/07/2013

The opening is about 6 inches by 3 inches; it's a big bag. Too big for what I need actually.
