Chalk Bag

A small stuff sack with a drawstring enclosure at its top for carrying powdered gymnastic chalk to alleviate sweaty hands. The bag is attached to either a climber’s harness with a carabiner or is worn on a separate nylon belt or cord, which allows the climber to move the bag from one side of his body to the other to facilitate putting his hand in it.
