BEST FOR: Duh, cold fingers

About damn time.

People who don’t get that cold don’t get it.

Read on, though, because this affects all of us, whether we are the sufferers or the climbing partners who are having a lousy-ass time listening to it.

If your fingers are freezing, climbing sucks, and you cannot climb your normal grades, which is the whole point.

Let this baby help you out.

For the first time: a heated chalk bag, and if it’s good enough for Alex Honnold, it should be good enough for you.

Only thing you have to do is charge it overnight, bang in the lithium-ion battery (lasts up to eight hours, depending on which of three intensity settings you use), and fire it up. 

Oh, you also have to pay for it, a mere $59.95.

Let the heating begin.

Rock and Ice vigorously tests all gear it reviews for either 50 days or 50 pitches. This is a time-consuming process and limits the amount of new equipment we can present to our readers. Every year hundreds of new products hit store shelves, and most of these aren’t reviewed due to our stringent selection and review process. To better keep you more up to date on what is new, we present First Look. Gear in First Look has not always been field tested, but is gear we think you’d like to know about as soon as it is available. Some of the gear will be reviewed using our 50 days/50 pitches criteria, in future print and online editions of Rock and Ice.
