Arcteryx makes some nice stuff. And if you can find it on a deal, that's even better nice stuff. The bag is a nice size for easy chalk access and the closure keeps the chalk in the bag. Has a tooth brush holder too, which you cant see in any of the pictures.
I really don't know why Arcteryx would charge so much for this.. Oh I know why, I feel for it :)When I bought this I was expecting the state of the art chalk bag, but it doesn't even have a zippered pocket (like some of the Petzl ones) or a tooth brush holder (like every other one). The material on the outside feels tough and the size is alright. My husband says it's a little smaller than his liking (he's 6'2" and has pretty big hands).I would only recommend it if you can get it on sale or you absolutely love the design. It's really nothing all that special.
