Haulbag to beg, borrow, steal, rent, or buy
« on: April 12, 2012, 08:26:13 am »
  First two weeks of June, probably going to be hot. Partner has no haul bag, and we will need another one just for H2o and extra gear. Already searched ebay, craigslist, with nothing but new pigs out there.

  Anyone have another suggestion, so he doesn't have to buy new for one more wall? Probably be a sub bag to my smallish grade V bag, I never got a huge grade VI and thought I would never need it.

  I would be responsible for it, can pay shipping, leave a deposit, pay for it outright, or whatever. I sold my Fish budget bag this last year, as it was getting worn, and I was a broke student in need of climbing money.

  Any suggestions?

Hey, Bob,

I've got a used grade six Metolius bag that won't be seeing any action soon. The bottom hem and stitching are worn to the point of opening up a finger-size hole in the seam. The rest of the bag is in very usable shape; no holes or dangerous-looking wear. You're welcome to it if you want to reinforce the bottom. I say that not as a contingency for borrowing it, but because you don't wanna go up with that seam the way it is. I'm sure it's not a difficult fix, but I haven't had the inclination to do it or have it done. I'm in Huntington Beach CA 92648.

I have a poorly thought out Mad Rock Haul Bag that's probably 5000 cubic inches or so. Once you're dragging it up the wall you won't notice it's flaws but the straps to carry it are a pain to get the thing on with a big load in it. I've yet to actually use it on a wall and just picked it up at OR one year. I'll sell it for what I have into it, maybe $30 plus shipping.

All these sound pretty good. Baltaro sell me that bag and I'll lend out to dirtbags here in the Valley all summer.

If you wanna rent it looks like Jeff's got your back:

Wmorris, email sent.  All very generous offers, and workable. I figure a grade VI bag wouldn't go to waste, and there never seems to be enough pig room during decents, so this is a winner from where I see it. Mike, I do have an industrial sewing machine to work over the seam and beef it up, It is not a freearm machine, so it would be quite a wrestling match I am sure. Repairing your pig would not shy me away, but making a professional type repair may be a little out of my experience range on the sewing end.

  Thanks to all for the views and responses, if the big piggy doesn't work out, the mad rock is probably a great second bag. I will have to wait and see. Wahoo, first two weeks of June, already reracked with every thing inventoried and checked, Elcap again, tried and true partner, don't really care about weather, great adventure on the near horizon. again, wahooooooooo!

Bob, I really don't care what sort of repair job happens to the bag. If you wanna dirtbag the thing together, that's OK with me. Hell, I really don't care if you look at it and decide it'll take another trip up as is. It obviously has worked for who-knows-how-many routes in it's current shape or close to it. I replaced it already, so NBD at all.

  Thanks Munge, I already paid Wmorris for the big piggie, and it should be on it's way. I really needed a bigger bag too. Otherwise I am all about helping someone with a financial tightness, because I do understand it very well.

Yeah Im looking forward to it.  I moved to Boulder from Sacramento area, so cant complain about the rock but now just far from yosemite!  Im moving to orlando for about 6 months starting in June so Im looking for any motivation to make it through that time period!
