Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does what it's supposed to well! A wonderful tool in anyone's climbing arsenal! I personally am not a fan of loose chalk, so I LOVE having a chalk sock, and this guy is so much better than the nonrefillable options out there. You can fill it up as much as you want (if you want smaller to roll on your hands, or larger to squeeze, as I do), and refilling it doesn't have to be a mess. Some dust in the air when filling, but c'mon: it's chalk! It definitely is more gym-friendly than loose chalk, and I use it for outdoor climbing because NO SPILLING! Bottom line: It does what it's supposed to do, and it does it well. It's a sock of chalk. Nothing to debate over buying or not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product This is a great sock, and beats spilling chalk and not getting enough chalk on you hands. A few minor complaints, though. When I first got it, it was so stuffed with chalk that I had to empty it some just to get it to fit in my chalk bag. This is easy to do, in fact, the plastic bag it comes in is a great place to keep it. Also, I am not a huge fan of the chalk that comes with the sock. Overall, a good buy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needed a quick mod The sock is fine, but the elastic tie and lock don't work too well as it comes. The lock slips on the elastic tie and the chalk spills into your bag. After a few days, the sock was completely empty and all the chalk was sitting at the bottom of my chalk bag. I recommend tying the elastic behind the lock or replacing the elastic for a thicker, static tie. Otherwise, it's a chalk sock; it'll do its job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient Simple and easy enough. Being able to refill it (and pick the amount of chalk) is convenient. My only complaint is that it has become a little difficult to get an adequate amount of chalk from it sometimes. I just keep a small amount of loose chalk at the bottom of my chalk bag for when this occurs. Still a great purchase though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a sock. It works. Why companies make non-refillable chalk socks is kinda confusing. Why anyone would buy anything other than this one? ... Right. This guys is filled to the brim out of the bag (not my preference) and included chalk was a bit on the clumpy side. Took a couple spoonfuls out and spent about 10 minutes breaking up the clumps and then it was perfect. It's a sock. It's refillable. What more could you want?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Better than most! I use this for climbing outside, in the gym, and bouldering. I recently lost my bag, and as a result my (this) sock, and my local REI was out of them at the time I went to go replace it. Unfortunately, they were out at the time, so I reverted back to block chalk. While I had started using loose chalk, I switched to the sock and never went back...until I lost my bag. So, after having been forced to switch back to loose from the sock I've realized that this product is pretty great. It coats my fingers/hands well without leaving a bunch of excess. While I think it's sometimes cool to blow excess chalk off my fingers, when I'm bouldering I don't want the chalk spilling everywhere (no bucket like bag for me yet) because someone else in the pit decided to kick it around (okay that someone is usually me). So, if you're looking to coat your hands/fingers but not leave excess residue on them that would otherwise cake you and your holds, then go for this sock. The size/capacity is great and it functions perfectly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good as my last one I had another Metolious Refillable Chalk Sock before this one (gave it to a friend that was getting into climbing). It released chalk much better than this one. I ended up taking a ultra fine point mechanical pen, putting a click or two of lead out and aerating the heck out of it. These holes are small enough that they won't cause any issues in regards to wear, but are enough that you get chalk when you squeeze the sock. But I've always loved refillable socks because I normally use about 85% chalk in the sock and 15% loose. Eh, it's what works for me haha

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Moderately chalky I have been using this chalk sock for a few weeks now and haven't had any major complaints. The only things that I had issues with was that it was very full when I got it, so I had trouble getting enough chalk on my hands, and the chalk that it comes with is not the best. At first I had a tough time getting enough chalk. I simply opened the hole a little more and everything worked out fine. Excited about a refillable bag!
