Acquired Taste

This rope bag is awesome for reasons that are not at first obvious.

I originally bought this bag because it had the largest tarp of all the ones in the REI store, I had seen that my friend's Metolius rope bag's tarp was simply not large enough to prevent the rope from spilling off and getting dirty. I began to dislike the bag because it seemed too big for the rope, and it has a bit of an awkward shape making it difficult to stuff inside a larger pack. It was also difficult to carry comfortably by itself.

Eventually I realized you could tie an end to the red loop inside it, flake it, then after climbing, tie the other end to green loop on tarp and push the tarp into the bag. When you go to the next route, just open the bag, and Voilà your rope is already flaked and ready to go, the end is automatically found (tied to green loop). Tying to the red loop is a great way of making sure you don't ever lower someone off the end of your rope. It is probably for the ease of storing a flaked rope that the Planet Granite gym in California gives out all lead ropes in one of these bags.

On my latest trip, we had to hike through bush and even cross a chest deep river. My friends all carried reasonably large packs and suffered (and they didn't even a rope+draws on them). I just took this bag with a 50m 10.5mm rope, harness, draws, and climbing shoes in it (it all fit just about right), and carried only the bag. It was reasonably comfortable carrying it on my back if you adjust the strap length. On the way back I fell while crossing the river and the bag landed in the water for a few seconds. When I opened the bag later, the tarp was a bit wet, but everything inside was 100% dry (I think it may be waterproof).

I've had this rope bag for a good 6 years now and have taken it everywhere! I have a 10.2, 60 meter rope and i just pancake coil it onto the drop cloth, roll it up like a burrito and cinch it up tight with the compression straps. It packs small enough for me to throw it in my BD pack and still have room for all my other gear. I'm kind of particular about taking preventative measures to keep my rope as clean as possible, after all those ropes are expensive! The drop cloth is large enough that when I'm belaying, the slack never gets in the dirt. It's been with me to every single climbing trip for the last 6 years and it hasn't shown any wear and tear other than the lettering coming off a bit but I think it adds character. I have the blue color and it think it's nice and tranquil. The red and green loops on the drop cloth easily help me find the ends as soon as I unroll it and it help keeps my rope not knotty when it's being stored. Only issue I've had is when I once tried to haul it up on a multi-pitch climb. The steel buckles got caught in a crack and caused us a headache. I don't try and haul it up anymore.

Rope bags are meant to carry ROPES

The bag is quite large, fits a 9.8mm/70m rope with ease so you could probably throw in some cord or slings for multi-pitch for simple crag packing... but i WOULD NOT recommend packing any other gear (such as metal objects) in with your rope.

Your rope is your lifeline, pack accordingly.

The best thing about this bag is the unique way BD sewed the tarp to the "bag" portion. Unlike other bags this bag has the tarp sewn the entire length of the end that rolls into the bag so when you fold the sides to roll your rope, it goes in just-right every time.

The material is very durable and it has a comfortable, slightly padded shoulder strap that is comfortable for short approaches. For the longer approaches it stuffs easily into any climbing pack because of it's "flat-rectangular" shape as opposed to the typical "ball" shape most other rope bags have to offer.
Jimbo - Utah at REI on 05/05/2011

I have been very happy with this rope bag. I tend to carry extra gear to the crag so my rope is rarely inside my pack. The Super Chute has a good sized tarp and tie down loops that are colored red and green: easy to remember which end is the stacked side! The corners of the tarp that are attached to be bag are sewn up which creates a sort of funnel when you get ready to shake the rope down into the bag. The shoulder strap is comfortable but if you have an approach of a couple of miles you are better off strapping it to your pack.
One of the biggest wins in my book is how quickly you can fold, roll, stuff, and cinch this bag up when the day is over. No zippers to line up, no special flaking to make it all fit. Just shove it in. Very easy and versatile.

Best. Rope. Bag. Ever.

Pitches, it's all about the pitches. I feel inadequate as a climber if I'm not putting in pitch after pitch on a climbing day. Speed of climbing is important, but just as crucial is your ability to manage the little details between climbs. Re-racking gear, stowing shoes and chalk bags, and most importantly, packing up the rope. Now, don't get me wrong, I can coil a rope, and in some instances (multipitch and alpine climbing) throwing a backpack coil on is the best solution. But not out cragging, when you're cragging, you want pitches, and being able to just toss the rope in this back, tie off both ends, roll it up and throw it in the pack save precious daylight for, well, more pitches.
Psyched Will at Rock/Creek Outfitters on 04/04/2011

before I got this we always had to coil our rope, either carry it or put it back in the crag pack, then when we got there we had to unpack and re flake the rope. Now its just unclip and fold out and it's good to go and already on a tarp then just roll it up and buckle! This thing is perfect for those days at the sport crag when you're just trying to get as many routes in before the weekend is over and you have to wait another five days. It fits my 60mX10.5mm workhorse easily, no zippers but one pull cord that seems to be too long but I think i'll live.

This bag is a gem. The Super Chute holds my 60m rope and gear with room to spare. The bag has a huge thin tarp to help extend the life of your rope, and is also extremely durable. The buckle straps are bomb proof and do a nice job of compressing your rope to a manageable size. My only complaint would be the strap. The strap is very uncomfortable over a period of time. I almost always have my rope bag in my pack, but the few times I have not it has sucked. All in all, this is a great bag that everyone should own.

Jon Klinginsmith at Backcountry.com on 05/16/2013

I just got the super shute bag and I love it. I was debating about not choosing to get a rope bag, but they keep your rope much safer from debris and additional damage which increases the lifespan of your rope. I like this bag because it has area to attach each end of your rope and a very large tarp to flake the rope if needed. It easily fits my 10.2 70M rope and the strap makes it easy to cary if you have a full pack. It was a little more than the metolious one, but Black Diamond is my go to company.

BD Super Chute

I really like the design of this rope bag. The tarp is sewn in completely to the bag, so it all gets in the bag in the end.

You could add extra stuff to the bag, but I bought it for just my rope - everything else goes in another pack.

The only possible downside is the narrow shoulder strap. It really isn't a problem though if you just have the rope in there.

The bag compresses really tight and flat, so it fits well in another pack if desired.

Negative Reviews:

First rope bag I've bought. I like that it has a large tarp to flake the rope on. I wish it was bigger. I carried my 70m 9.7mm rope in it and barely had room for my harness to fit. I couldn't get my helmet and shoes to fit in the bag with the rope and harness. But, I guess that's forgivable as it's really just intended to carry a rope.
Pretty uncomfortable to carry. Only has one shoulder strap, without much padding. Having the one strap forces you to carry it off-balance, which sucks on the hike in and out. Makes it hard to hike with over uneven terrain.
I wish it had some kind of loops or something on the exterior as well. A place to hang some biners, draws, a helmet, or shoes would have been helpful. Also, since there's no attachment points on the bags exterior, you can't add on your own shoulder straps after you buy it.
The buckles have annoying attachment clips that you have to slide through the straps. This is really hard to do when your hands are freezing/wearing gloves, the straps are wet, or the bag is really stuffed full.
Overall, I plan on returning the bag and getting something larger and more versatile.

Good bag...for certain things

This bag works REALLY well and is well constructed, I throw it around and it takes a beating well. It's simple to use and I like the way it folds my rope up and rolls out.

The big(and only) problem is the single shoulder strap. Its just plain uncomfortable to carry around. Granted I stuff it with my 70m rope, trad rack, water, and 2 pairs of shoes.

I have come to hate carrying just this bag for almost any distance as it just slides right in the way if your scrambling over anything or is just uncomfortable despite the padded carry strap. This would work if you only have drive up(as in directly to the base or your) cragging for all of your climbs but that is never really the case, is it?

In all i still use this bag but i have to carry another bag with backpack straps with this one in it.

Difficult to adjust

The tarp was quite large and has convenient loops to tie the ends of the rope to in order to keep it flaked, however the side shoulder-strap was extremely uncomfortable for me. The double backed straps made the process of adjusting the strap extremely long. Id hold up the group trying to make the bag comfortable to hike with. I returned the rope bag.
