I have had the DMM Flight Bag, courtesy of DMM Climbing for a few months now and thought that I would try a product review on this blog.
The bag that arrived was in Red but they are also available in Green or Grey. The quality of it looked and felt very good the seams were nicely finished and strong. The bag’s dimensions are just right for most airline cabin luggage and there is plenty of pockets ans storage. My specific bag was personalized for me by DMM’s own embroider’s who had done a brilliant job.
Opening the main compartment which has two zip’s to be able to open it fully laid out. On one side is one compartment with a net closing the compartment off with a zip all the way round. The compartment is big enough for climbing shoes, chalk bucket and chalk bag and takes up the whole of this side of the bag.
On the other side which is open it contains 2 straps with clips and also a sheet for use when outdoors to keep your ropes neat and clean. Also at the top of this side is a small pouch. This side is large enough to store your ropes. There are also a couple of clips for keys etc.
Moving to the top of the bag there is another pouch which occupies the top 1/4 of the bag. In here I have my tape, thermoband,, sleeve for my prosthetic arm and snack bars. Perfectly adequate for most small items. One one side of the bag is a holder for a litre bottle and on the other side two side handles which allow you to carry it in a horizontal position.
There are some great straps in order to attach a helmet and some straps to hold a decent sized rope.
The rucksack straps are well padded and large enough to be comfortably worn. They have a chest and waist strap which holds the rucksack firmly against your back and a mesh back board to allow your back to breathe.
All in all I really like this bag, its size and features. You don’t need anything else. It costs approx £85 – £95 and can be purchased from a number of climbing outlets.

Here’s an excerpt:
A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,300 times in 2015. If it were a cable car, it would take about 22 trips to carry that many people.
2015 has been a fantastic year, a number of first’s and some big achievements. For Matthew climbing has taken off and 2016 looks to be even a bigger year. But to reflect on few key events of the past year. Read more of this article »
