I have had one Superslacker for well over a decade. While some people prefer other bags, this well thought out CLASSIC has been around so long for a reason.
One plus is how easy this bag is to load and move from climb to climb. The ample room means you can fold the tarp over the rope and toss in your shoes and other gear. Close up and move - unfold when you reach the next climb.
This is also a cool bag for setting up top ropes. With the bag over a shoulder, undo one side of the bag and pull out the middle(I keep it where I can find it) clip it through the anchors/draws and with the rope inside the bag, drop the whole package. The rope stays clean and protected until you rap down and unfold it all.
Many of the great uses of this bag come from it's unique design. It is different from other designs and can be used in a number of ways. I prefer the Superslacker for both top roping and sport routes over other bags my friends use. I recommend this bag to others.
Durability is great. BD makes quality products. I for one like the zipper as well as the buckles. The zipper is a nice feature that you don't have to use when moving from climb to climb if you don't like it. The tarp is not necessarily small; but, another foot larger in either direction wouldn't hurt.
I've had many different rope bags over the past 12 years and keep coming back to my Superslackers. The rope tarp size is generous, rolling the rope into the burrito style shape is easy, the compression straps on the outside work easily and, contrary to a few others here, I really like the zipper. I will admit I've had the barrel clasps on the end cinches break but they're easily replaced for cheap. And, to be fair, I use this rope bag more than any of my others; multiple times a week.
My climbing pack is an Osprey pack so the elongated shape of this rope bag allows me to strap it vertically to the compression straps common on Osprey packs. This just works really well for me.
I've used this rope bag for 60m x 10.5mm ropes as well as 70m x 9.8mm ropes and never feel like I'm squeezing the ropes in there. The volume of this bag is very good.
I had previously owned a Kong rope bag that did the job carrying my ropes and some equipment but looked ugly. I got this one just based on how it looked and wasn't disaapointed, loogs good and highly functional and easily stowable on top of your backpack or justn sling it on a shoulder and ur done. Good build and nice material.
This is a nice bad with a large tarp. This bag can hold your rope, quickdraws, belay device, shoes, and harness. Don't expect to carry this bag on long treks to the crag. The strap is not very thick and cuts into your shoulder a little.
I love this thing! If you truly love your rope you need this or a rope bag. This protects it from the ground when flaking it. Protects it anywhere you go. Easy to find each end of the rope. Glad I got it!
I travel with this thing, as well. Works great for changes of clothes; lay em' all out and wrap em' up, and you have yourself a lightweight alternative to packs and duffels.
This is really a bad, outdated design. You end up with a lumpy mess, the tarp is too small, and it's an awkward size. Get a Metolius rope master
Yeah the zipper is nice once it is done up, but honestly not worth the hassle. Go with the Super Chute instead- buckles are better.
