Arc'teryx Haku Rope Bag
The Arc'teryx Haku Rope Bag features a funnel loading system that lets you quickly and easily pack the rope without the need to stuff - I'd recommend watching the above video to see it for yourself!
The Haku Rope Bag is large enough for a 60 m rope and a few bits of gear. It's made from 210 denier nylon and nylon ripstop for a high level of abrasion-resistance, and it features nothing more than the main compartment for a streamlined, lightweight carry. This functional system is ideal for quickly moving from climb to climb on a day out without having to coil or pick up - i.e. tangle - the rope every time.

Ripstop fabrics are made by weaving a nylon thread in interlocking, square patterns through a base material. (You can spot its distinguishable appearance in fabrics with a raised box or diamond pattern.) As a result, rips and tears, unable to bypass this nylon barrier, are confined to one very small area and will not spread throughout the fabric.

Packing your rope goes quite well. I like the option of having your bag half open to get you quickly moving to the next crag/route. (in this case you can also store your shoes etc)
Closing the bag fully gets the whole package quite compact.
Yet I miss having some kind of pocket for small essentials.
It looks nice though!
