Metolius Quarterdome Haul Bag - Anyone got one
« on: August 10, 2009, 08:18:34 pm »
I've got a opportunity to buy one for a very good price (about half retail) and wondered what everyone's thoughts on it where.

Is it big enough for say a grade 5 route? Is it a useful size?

I'm not worried about quality, etc, since I've already got a sentinel, an Half dome and an El cap!

Thanks.

Whoa....I'd say you're fully "bagged".
You're not tryin' to get all "Peteish" are you?

Hey again, jm.

You pose some loaded Qs there, I think. Some crag out grade sixes and some make 4-5s into 6s. It's sorta about you, and whether a 4200 ci pack will fit your uses. If I recall you do a lot of alpine style wall climbing, so assuming that I think you'd find that size really useful. I have an A5 that's a tad larger at ?5500 ci, and that size works great, just a little too large so you can find stuff in it. That bag is cylindrical, so it rides like a trash can. I'd think the fitted shape of the Met would carry nicer and still not be too small. I'd be on that.

Say no to limbers, excavators and retro-bolters. No matter how much he smiles.

No chance of going Peteish! I go as light as possible and hence all the haul bags I try to take the smallest bag as possible.... If you take a large haul bag you will fill it!

Thanks for the feedback.

I have the next size down, yellow with black trim.  The black vinyl top melts all my snickers, stupid marketing driving choice of materials.

I cover all the black trim with gray or white duct tape. Seems to help a lot. I suppose you could paint the black cloth?

Bye the way if you don't already know, walgreens usually stocks white duct tape!
