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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
