Small or Personal Tackle Bags

This category covers bags that might reasonably carry personal kit (rather than group kit, such as rope), plus small containers for bolting and survey kit. We've arranged them roughly in order of capacity. Note that in this section, the ONLY bag that easily carries a full- sized DAREN Drum is the Petzl Personnel.

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.
AV Survey Pocket 
£10.00

AV Survey Pocket

A small, neat, and durable flat PVC pocket with a velcro closure, doubled entry for security, and finished with tape to protect all seams. Ideal for surveying kit; or a very secure method of carrying through-bolts for those who rig with them; or carrying and protecting batteries (especially within a tackle bag - fits the Scurion and Rude Nora cells very nicely). Has a tape loop for hanging from belt or harness. Size is c. 22cm by 20cm. Colour yellow.
MTDE Spikit bolting bag 
£16.50

MTDE Spikit bolting bag

Possibly the best hand-bolting pod bag anywhere.... Neat, made to fit hammer, driver, cones and anchors, drill bits and not much else. The storage of cones and anchors is very good and makes them genuinely hard to lose.Hang it off the Garma or the Spelshoulder Pro chest harness for a really user - friendly setup.
MTDE MiniKit 
£18.00

MTDE MiniKit

Small lightweight personal bag, made of PVC. Comes with a sturdy drawcord closure, belt loop, and internal pocket closed with velcro. Well suited for small items such as rescue kit, spare food, SRT gear, or a general purpose 'pod' bag with dimensions of 28cm by 14cm by 9cm. Low profile, simple, and effective. Fitted with a single large drain hole Note that while it *will, just* accept a full SRT kit, there will be no spare room at all. Anyone who wants a bag for absolutely everything - cowstails, sit harness and all - may prefer the larger MTDE MiniPro, or Warmbac Gournier.

Lyon Bits Bag

The Lyon Bits Bag is a small, cylindrical personal bag. Its dimensions are 29cm in height, and 14cm in width.

Medium-small lightweight personal bag, made of PVC. It may be carried in various ways due to its belt loop, side handle, and low-profile shoulder straps.

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.
Warmbac Gournier 10 litre 
£44.10

Warmbac Gournier 10 litre

A medium sized personal bag, capacity c. 10l. A good sized rigging bag, SRT kit bag, or small personal safety sack for deeper continental caves such as the Gouffre Berger. The Daren drum in the image gives an idea of scale. The Gournier is oval section with low profile shoulder straps. It makes it possible to hang it from the belt, or else wear it on the back in larger caves, or if abseiling with multiple tackle bags - big enough to count, but streamlined enough to be un-noticeable. Made of heavy fabric and with a double base (tape protected seam), the Gournier presents a decent handle when approached from any direction. Complete with adjustable twin shoulder straps (metal buckles) and drain holes.
Petzl Personnel 15 Litre 
£48.00

Petzl Personnel 15 Litre

The Personnel is a small tackle sack with 15l capacity. As the name suggests it is well suited to carrying a small amount of comfort and safety kit, whether as a stand-alone in predominantly non vertical caves, and also as a small-enough-to-cope-with secondary bag in more vertical 'nylon highways' at home or abroad. The Personnel 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!) Oval base (but will accept a small Daren Drum), weight given as 0.45kg.
Warmbac Tonnerre 22 litre 
£48.00

Warmbac Tonnerre 22 litre

A general purpose medium sized bag, it will hold 40m of rope comfortably; also a comprehensive safety kit packed into a dry bag. 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.
