Tackle Bags for Rope or Camping

We have arranged these in size order, pretty much.. This corresponds closely to price, but not entirely - some bags have more metalwork or stitching, which increases price. We don't have every bag that's made; but if there's something that you want from our key manufacturers that you don't see, just ask. Most bags here are oval, as they hang better when deployed from a belt, and also carry better on the back in low passages. However we do have a bag suitable for Daren Drums!

A Big Cordgrip 
£5.00

A Big Cordgrip

Yes, it's A BIG Cordgrip. Alloy cord grip for use on tackle bag drawcords, or general caving bling. Strong spring so it will keep a bag closed reliably.
Bag Tether 
£3.60

Bag Tether

A length of 6mm cord to be used to attach the tackle bag to the caver. Traditionally known as a 'Donkey's Dick' but not in front of the caver's beloved grandmother. Supplied doubled (for strength) with extra knots along the length to improve grip (much easier to pick it up in confined spaces). Long enough not to let the bag be stood on while prussiking! A must for expeditionary cavers, where different types and ages of tackle bags will be encountered; and for those using Beast or Warmbac bags. Best used with a small, low profile - but full strength, not accessory - karabiner.
AV Kit Bag 15 litre 
£39.00

AV Kit Bag 15 litre

A small sized round - base PVC tackle bag, which can hold one standard sized Daren drum, with a little spare. Constructed with durable fabric, the Kitbag 15 has one side handle, plus a grab handle on the top, and also on the base (which has drain holes). Wide webbing shoulder straps are adjustable with plastic buckles. Well suited for use as a group safety sack. The bag has standard cord and eyehole closure. There is a clip-in point inside the bag, for small or rigging kit. As with most continental bags the tether is included, which can easily be replaced. Colours: Red; but blue or yellow on request.
MTDE Taladro bag 20 litre 
£42.00

MTDE Taladro bag 20 litre

A solidly built small, oval-base tackle bag with double shoulder straps, handles on both sides, plus one at the base and one at the top. Internal pocket with velcro'ed flap closure for small or losable items. Easy to carry, the shape is also particularly effective in narrower systems. Closed with cord and eyelets with built in lanyard. The double material base with extra reinforced seam makes this a potentially suitable bag for drills and diving equipment (it can hold up to five demand valves) - especially when used with the matching "protection bag". It is not made to accept a Daren drum, but makes a useful 'rescue grab bag' or emergency kit bag for group leaders in conjunction with the large Latex drybag, or the Ortlieb 20l drybag. Now comes complete with drain holes (unless specified)
Warmbac Tonnerre 22 litre 
£48.00

Warmbac Tonnerre 22 litre

A general purpose medium sized bag, included here because it will carry a pair of 1.5litre alloy bottles easily. Also, a well-padded (but not Daren Drum packed) set of regulators makes an easy load without the temptation of adding more heavy kit in! The Tonnerre is the middle bag in the image. Made of heavy fabric and with a double base (tape protected seam), the Tonnerre aims to present a decent handle when approached from any direction. This is an oval based bag with two side handles, drag handle on the base, and a large, reinforced and comfortable top handle / haul loop. Complete with adjustable twin shoulder straps (metal buckles), drain holes, and internal accessory pocket, this is a versatile and user friendly piece of kit.
Beast Big Momma 
£49.20

Beast Big Momma

Another classic bag, often missed, returns! Classic low volume bag for gnarly places, not available for several years but now relaunched. Adjustable shoulder straps and heavy duty side carry handle, this flat-sided sack can carry about 75m of rope but has traditionally been used for carrying digging or personal kit to places like the Hard Rock Cafe in Daren Cilau. It is really a tackle bag where durability and low profile are more significant than absolute capacity. All metal fittings and a double fabric PVC base for maximum durability. Colour is primarily PURPLE.
Petzl Classic 22 litre 
£54.00

Petzl Classic 22 litre

The Classic is a small to medium sized tackle sack with 22l capacity. As the name suggests it is well suited to carrying a comfortable amount of rigging kit, whether as a stand-alone in predominantly non vertical caves, or in more vertical 'nylon highways' where its compact size facilitates carrying two, or even more. The Classic is made of a mid weight material with a PVC like feel, and with welded seams, which removes a key wear point. It has two moulded carrying handles (side and top) as well as two shoulder straps. It also has an interior gear loop and top flap; and the whole thing is completed by a 90cm floating haul cord (so that when you drop the bag in a deep pool, you can hook it out - possibly!) Round base (will accept two Daren Drums, just). Yellow and black, only. Weight given as 0.55kg.
AV Kitbag 25 litre 
£42.00

AV Kitbag 25 litre

A medium sized round - base PVC tackle bag, which can hold two standard sized Daren drums. Constructed with durable fabric, the Kitbag 25 has one side handle, plus a grab handle on the top, and also on the base (which has drain holes). Wide webbing shoulder straps are adjustable with plastic buckles. The bag has standard cord and eyehole closure, with further security for small items, and protection of rope from mud, through a large PVC flap to seal the top. There is a clip-in point inside the bag, for small or rigging kit. As with most continental bags the tether is included, which can easily be replaced. Colours: Red; but blue or yellow on request.
MTDE Exploration 30 litre 
£45.00

MTDE Exploration 30 litre

An oval based medium-sized tackle bag of 30 litre capacity. Two side handles, handles at top and base, plus padded adjustable shoulder straps for comfort on longer walks in to the cave. Carrying cord integral to drawcord / eyelet closure. Double fabric on the base, with effective seam protection. A good expedition rope bag as it has a slightly bigger capacity than most British bags. It has useful array of carrying handles; fitted with two large drain holes as standard, unless otherwise requested.
Warmbac Berger 32 litre 
£50.40

Warmbac Berger 32 litre

A general purpose medium / large bag. The Berger is based upon the standard 100m rope bag but is more highly featured for use in awkward situations. Designed to carry expedition sized amounts of gear or rope easily and in comfort. The Berger is the right-hand bag in the image, the largest of the three. Made of heavy fabric and with a double base (tape protected seam), the Berger can cope with heavy loading. Reinforced handles on both sides and on the base, plus large reinforced grab handle on top for easy use in meanders. Wide shoulder straps for a comfortable carry. Oval shaped, making it more comfortable to carry the Berger on the back for extended periods. A work horse of a bag!
