We teamed up with some amazing sewers to bring you limited run Chalk Bags & Buckets in unique colors. These are the highest quality chalk bags & buckets with a FrictionLabs twist: every one has a different fabric pattern and comes with a FrictionLabs Patch already sewn on by incredibly skilled crafts- men and women at ORGANIC Climbing in Pennsylvania.
They are made from super tough 1000d nylon with customized color schemes.
The chalk bag has a stiff ring to make it super easy to chalk up. Inside of the burly nylon shell is a polyester fleece lining (it feels awesome!) with a drawstring cinch to keep your chalk where it belongs, even when you're not using it. The nylon belt is included with the bag, along with an elastic hook for brush storage.
The chalk bucket rolls down and seals like a boaters dry bag when not in use. The mouth of the buckets are also lined with velcro for quick and easy closure between problems. There are elastic hooks for brush storage and a zippered pocket on the back for whatever else you have in your kit (big enough to fit an iPhone 6/7+).
These sell out fast, so if you like one, snag it!
Got an awesome deal on a bucket + 5 Oz chalk. I definitely recommend it if you're into bouldering! It really helps you coat your hands without making a mess and losing extra chalk. Only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that the hook and loop enclosure isn't the greatest, but the velcro is super strong and keeps the bag sealed up tight.
I love the bag! plenty of space, sturdy. The design I received is not as complex as the designs on the site. I know they're all supposed to be different, but it seems plain by comparison. Still great for holding lots of chalk
This was a great bundle. The chalk bag and bucket are great! Needed a bucket for my home woody for bouldering and another decent size chalk bag. Both are perfect.
The color pattern I got is sooo ugly. You don't get to choose the actual pattern, which they don't really tell you. The pattern doesn't look remotely close to the picture. I actually called to tell them to make sure it looked like the picture, because I saw the fine print after the fact.
Honestly, just get a different bucket. Every other place that sells these, they look exactly like the picture, and I mean, all buckets are pretty much the same. It's just a big pouch, might as well just get one you know that you'll like. I am extremely dis satisfied.
I love this chalk bucket. The colors are awesome (I got the Raven scheme). It's very simple and offers enough room in the zippered pocket for my climbskin, file, finger tape, and clippers. Also, the roll top is nice. Chalk doesn't get out! Speaking of chalk, the 5oz sample is much more than I expected. Surely it will last a while! My only complaint is that the brush holder is on the side and my brush kinda gets in the way of rolling the bag closed. I believe the original Organic lunch bag bucket has a second brush holder that holds it horizontally near the base. I think I'd like that more. Still a great value vs the lunch bag since it's on sale right now!
Love the vibrant colors of the Friction Labs chalk bucket. I especially like the spacious zipper pocket in the back, which holds my wallet and iPhone 7 comfortably with a little room to spare. Perfect for the gym - I get a lot of compliments about it, and I always like seeing a smile on people's faces when they don't have chalk and I magically present to them this big ol' bag of Unicorn Dust. Looks big the first time you see it, but you get used to it and eventually appreciate the size.
This is the best chalk and chalk bucket ever so no more excuses on why your having an off day because this is the stuff!
I bought the bucket because of the deal with the free chalk. I'm so glad I did I love the bucket exactly what I wanted and made a few of my friends jealous. Haven't used the chalk yet but looking forward to it. Thank you so much Friction Labs keep this up and you might land yourself a life time customer.
Me and my daughter are incredibly enthusiastic about the crazy chalk. It is caring and feels great. We Will Never use other chalk again! Further the Shop support of frictionlabs is perfect and even the delivery to Germany was no problem. I will certainly order again.
Great chalk bag. The zipper pocket is big enough for cell phones(fits a iPhone6+) and any extra accessories you might need for climbing.
Only issue with me is it needs a handle of some kind!
The current bungeee strap is unreliable.
I really like the chalk. It seems to last longer than the other types of chalk I have tried and stickier too. The chalk bucket is great; no more spilt chalk!
Love the new chalk bucket Great large chalk bucket with rear zipper pocket and chalk can't wait to give it a go!!!....amazing dealings with the guys at Friction labs speedy delivery to Australia. Can't wait to order some more gear from Friction Labs!!!!!
This chalk bucket is exactly what I wanted/needed. It's large enough to really dig in and get up to my arms in chalk (which I love!). Plus, it has a storage pocket for my phone, wallet, etc. and a spot to clip my climbing shoes to so it really is a one-stop shop for the bouldering gym. Couldn't be happier!
I recently purchased this product as my first chalk bucket. I have only been climbing since the beginning of fall and it is currently February. Seeing the bucket online I loved the design of it. All the other bags on the market are all black and basic. This one has vibrant color and made of durable fabric.
I opened the bucket up and poured in the free 5oz bag of gorilla grip plus some left over unicorn dust. Getting to the gym I placed my hands in and got this beautiful quick coat of chalk. The bucket helps just get that good base layer before you climb. With my bag and chalk ball I never got this kind of coverage. When I'm done there's a Velcro strap to help contain chalk in case the bucket gets kicked, which I always see happen. As I climb I just dab my finger tips in as I need. Plus the brush loop is thicker and higher quality than other buckets I've seen. This means less chance of losing my brush and I appreciate that feature.
There are only two things I can say are bad with the bucket. One is the product does not look as good as the one advertised. Mine had 3 vertical running strips and compared to the advertised image is boring. The second is the size of the little back pocket. If it was a inch bigger it would be great.
I really do like this bucket and I hope it will last as I progress in my climbing.
Great for bouldering! Allows you to get more chalk on your hands without wasting as much, it's stable on the floor, doesn't leak when sealed, and has a pocket for hand care items. It does only have one brush holder, the Organics branded version has a second sewn on with the label. Chalk that came with it is definitely better than cheaper chalks, I wind up using a lot less and it feels better. I'll have to go through a whole bag and see if it's worth the premium from a value perspective, but it certainly is higher quality chalk.
Admittedly, I was one of those guys that thought "chalk is chalk." After using the gorilla grip chalk for a 90 minute session on my beastmaker, I am a believer... The chalk definitely stays on my usually sweaty tips longer than the popular climbing chalk that I typically use. Oh yeah, and the chalk bucket is great.
Great bag, the velco is super helpful to keep the chalk contained between boulder problems. Love it!
There is only 1 (one) elastic hook for a brush, not several as advertised...(come'on that's blatantly obvious!?)
The one I got was not nearly as cool looking as the one displayed. I know they are all "custom" but the pattern I got on mine was done by someone without imagination, or hurrying to get out for the weekend. The advertisement is sick, with the balance of colors and trick pattern. Mine is almost all yellow, with a horizontal blue panel over a small red corner. Not exactly what I was thinking based on what is shown, and yes, a bit of a disappointment.
Lost 3 stars because it has poor craftsmanship (loose threads, poorly stitched patch, the pattern) and the misleading advertisement (1 elastic - hook not several). Lastly, the fact the the " incredibly skilled crafts- men and women at ORGANIC Climbing in Pennsylvania" decided to let a novice work on some of these, and that QC decided to pass them on to consumer is a major bummer.
I've been eyeing getting a chalk bucket for quite a while and jumped on the opportunity when I saw the Sale. It's perfect, just the right size. I was able to put 15oz of chalk and still plenty of room of to fold up. I really like the way it rills up and closes. I've been using grocery bags to keep my other chalk bag leaking contained. This is a great design and makes it nice and compact. My only complaint is the design in the bag. I ordered Solar because I like the red and yellow criss cross design. What I got had some of the same colors but wasn't really what I wanted. It had a big brown strip and smaller red strip. I understand each design is suppose to be unique but I didn't feel this really shared the spirit of the Solar design on the site. It's a small complaint and I'll get over it but I would have picked another design if I knew there was this much variation.
My friction labs organic chalk bucket is the coolest thing I see around any rock I climb! Always holding up, very sturdy and holds a bunch of the best chalk in the world!
This bucket is a great size for a person who sweats a lot. I was a little disappointed it did not come with a belt, but I was able to clip it on my harness fairly easily. Now I never run out of chalk- even on multipitch!! The best thing is that when I'm done sending sweet routes I just close the bag and chalk is SEALED in. No more chalk in the backpack! The zippered pocket is pretty decent too. I'm sure it would be great for keys or a phone but I'll probably fill it with an emergency stash of chalk for humid days.
BTW, the chalk that came with this bucket is great so far. I'm pretty sure this chalk lasts way longer than the BD chalk I had before. Maybe I won't have to put emergency chalk in the zippered pocket after all, and I can pack it with homemade energy bars or inspirational quotes. Thanks friction labs!!
Great bucket! Good size. Stands up. Great materials.
And the chalk is excellent!
For any climbing, any chalk can be used.
But this chalk it's not "any chalk".
For a REAL climbing, this chalk is essential! The difference is clear.
I bought this for my husband who wanted a larger chalk bag. He was very impressed with how well the bag was made and its ability to contain the chalk without collapsing, as his previous bag did. He also loved the bright colors, (purchased the Raven) and the free chalk, which he hasn't had a chance to try yet. The only recommendation he had was he wished the liner was all the way around the inside of the bag and not only on the bottom. Other than that, it's a keeper!
Beautifully made chalk bucket and I have to say that the Unicorn Dust is, definitively, the best chalk I have ever used. I'd say I chalk up about 1/4 as frequently as I typically do with my other chalk. And all of a sudden, I am flashing V12s!
That's not true.
But the chalk and the bag are aces!
This is my first chalk bucket, but I have been climbing for a while and have seen a lot of them. The quality of workmanship is excellent, meaning that I don't have to worry about leaking chalk anywhere. It folds up very securely and is very stable when it is open. In addition, the color scheme is just awesome (I got the Raven). One thing to note, the back of the bag does not have the same color scheme, it is a lot more plain, but not a deal breaker at all.
Great bucket. Stands up. Stays open. Great Velcro closure, and a clip and cinch to roll it down (to make sure the chalk stays in). Plus it comes with their awesome chalk! Highly recommended.
The bag is great! Stands up, big hole for both hands, easy close. Doesn't give a lot of room for extra stuff with the smallish pocket, the brush hoop will only fit small handled brushes, and the velcro seal has the potential to leak chalk. But, it was exactly what I was looking for, so it's worth it. Plus 5oz of free chalk is hard to pass up.
This chalk is fantastic! I have never used anything like it. it stays on my hands 20x longer than any black diamond brand chalk. Keep doing what you guys do!
The size and durability of this bag is second to none. Sturdy, appealing to the eye, and noticed by all.
This bag has everything you need- the Velcro closure works great, the little zipper pocket is a nice addition, and the overall shape and feel is perfect. It is a much more square footprint than you might guess from the picture- it unrolls into a sturdy box that sits solidly on the ground with plenty on room to stick in both hands up to the wrist.
I was originally going to buy the original Organic branded version but the free chalk offer made this version a no brainer (plus who wouldn't want to rep the friction labs logo?) Love friction labs!
I bought this bucket as an upgrade for myself. The quality of the bag is great and I love friction lab chalk. 100% happy, would buy again!
I got my friction chalk bucket as a gift and absolutely love its functionality and color. It works great and the closer is perfect for a non leaking seal when tossed into a climbing bag.
