Climbing the classics- Little Cottonwood dipping.

Climbing the classics- Little Cottonwood dipping.

Since the late 90’s I’ve been sewing and crafting hand crafted, one-of-a-kind, climbing and cycling bags. Everything from portaledges, to backpacks, to courier bags, to chalk bags have passed beneath my presser foot, hopefully destined for some taller mountain, narrower street, or faded trail.

Lately I’ve been focused on building quality chalk bags that will stand the rigors of the crag, the gym, or the [big] wall. My design has matured significantly since the first versions crafted in my good friend Scott’s basement over a decade ago- they’re stronger and more functional than ever.   All of my bags are made from the ground-up (like any respectable route) in my sustainably-powered sewing corner in Salt Lake City. My bags are well tested in one of the greatest labs in the world- the Wasatch.

A percentage of every chalk bag sale is donated to the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance– a local non-profit working on pertinent climbing issues right here in the Utah.

Check out my Etsy.com store here to see what oddities I currently have in stock. I love custom orders- so if you’ve got something in mind, give me a shout (via Etsy or arieleeflang at hotmail dot com) and we’ll get it rolling. If you already own one of my bags I’d love to hear your experiences.

Thanks a bunch,


P.S.- If you’re into collecting coupons from the Sunday paper (or not), here’s a coupon code for my Etsy shop worth 15% off any of my bags:  SnickeringGremlins
