Intricately, efficiently and seamlessly designed, the Blockbuster Chalk Bag is everything you might want from a chalk bucket and more. Like the rest of the Rock + Run range, the Blockbuster is a ‘no frills, no spills’ take on this kit essential, masterfully executing the fundamentals without the gimmicks or exorbitant price tag. Read on to find out what makes the Blockbuster the ultimate chalk dispensing companion.
Cut to the Crunch
The Blockbuster is ergonomic and delightfully comfortable to use – holding, transporting and dispensing chalk exceptionally well. We’ve all experienced chalk spillages in our time, usually thanks to a bungee cord that hasn’t quite pulled tight or the bag falling over; spilt chalk is a nightmare for your local crag and your wallet. Well, thanks to the super effective combination of Velcro with a roll top and clip closure and a large, sturdy base, your chalk isn’t going anywhere with the Blockbuster (much to the relief of your local climbing gym staff!).
The construction and quality of the Blockbuster is top notch, with a 1000d nylon outer and polyester inner with internal fleece panels proving to be tough and robust whilst feeling lovely in the hand. Crafted locally by Lake District company, Dirt Bags, the Blockbuster is ethically produced and made in small batches. Ethical composition and exclusivity are backed up with efficient engineering and refined design. The elastic brush loops and a Velcro pocket for climbing accessories are neat added touches which streamline any climbing trip and contain all of your skin care paraphernalia in one place.
