Description

Sure, we’ve all been there. You’re lured in by “sending temps” then BAM! You’re hanging on the end of the rope due to a case of numb fingers. Well, at Black Diamond, we set out to once and for all crush the problem of numb fingers, and now we’re proud to introduce the Hot Forge Heated Chalk Bag. Built for climbers who suffer from cold hands, or those who are in constant pursuit of high friction but still battle with numb tips, the Hot Forge Heated Chalk Bag combines our innovative 3-level heating system utilized in our ground-breaking Solano gloves, with the technology of our Hot Forge insulating jacket, to give you the ultimate sending machine. By combining 80 gram insulation with our Hot Forge design, we landed on a bag that not only houses the heating element, but also traps heat effectively. What we created is a revolutionary heated chalk bag with three different temperature settings depending on the level of numbing out you typically experience given the ambient climbing conditions.

  • Heat your fingertips, knuckles and palms by gripping the ergonomically-designed heating element
  • Lightweight fabric shell surrounds the heating system
  • 80 g Thinsulate® insulation helps retain the heat
  • Includes Lithium-Ion battery and wall charger with international adapters 
  • Battery Life with Full Change: Low- 6-8 hrs; Med- 4-6 hrs; High- 2 hrs

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not warm I tried this once in 40°F weather, and it does not warm. You would be better off with those hot pocket things you get at a gas station. I am very disappointed, but of course Black Diamond refuses returns.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not an April fools I did not give in the the April’s fools tomfoolery and purchased one, it is pretty amazing. Would have liked it to work with one battery and come with a spare as it is pretty heavy with the current set up they have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No more numbing out! This heated chalk bag is a game changer. No more numbing out on the warmup or any route of the day for that matter. This bag stays toasty enough to keep your hands from complete numbness. It’s not heavy either like i read from another review.. lies. The weight is comparable to my regular Metolius chalk bag filled to the brim with chalk. I suggest keeping the bag closed while not using and to purchase the Solano glove back up batteries as well. That way you can keep the bag running on high all day long. I tuck it under my jacket while not climbing to provide some added heat under my coat and it’s primed and ready to go when you climb. Each battery lasts about 2.5-3 hours on high and im yet to go through all 3 batteries in a day of cragging. A definite must have if you plan on climbing in the cold. No more nasty disposable hand warmers. Heated chalk bag for life! Your hands will thank you, trust me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tech but wish it charged via 5V USB In today's world where you can practically charge all your devices via a 5V output with a USB connector it's a shame that this bag requires you to lug around a dedicated charger that outputs 8.4V at 1A with a narrow old-school pin connector. Weirdly enough the total power is below the 10W that most smartphone chargers operate at so this is not a power issue. Other than that it's a great product but I'm removing one star because of the inconvenience of not being able to charge this from my solar charger when I'm in the backcountry for days, climbing remote routes. Instead I will have to ratio the use carefully so it will last more than a day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So I thought this was a joke... I got this because I thought it was an April Fool's joke and that I was going to get a funny message or something after my order. I actually like it a lot, it is a nice size and the style is kinda cool. The heating element works well, though I haven't ever felt like I needed it (and have used it more when on the ground than the wall...).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bought in May, won't even turn on now... Bought one in May, worked great... Left it fully charged. Now less than 4 months later won't even turn on. Tried charging it again, still won't turn on. So didn't even make it to Winter. If it was $20 I'd chalk it up to a gag idea... but they charged $65.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from oh so toasty Okay, so I didn't buy this entirely because Honnold had it, but I would be a liar if I said that wasn't a factor. No but for real, this bag is a game changer. I have Raynauds and cold fingers are always the inhibiting factor for me. Yes, its a little heavier than your average chalk bag, however it gets so warm even on the lowest setting. Truly a game changer and totally saves my fingers. Everyone should have one, for real.
