Introducing TUFA Climbing, quality made custom chalkbags in Missoula, Montana. My way of supporting my semi-dirtbag lifestyle.

These bags have been tested and proven from the coarse granite of Chamonix to the nastiest desert OWs by Pamela Pack.

I'd love to help bring your ideas and designs into your hands.

All bags are $25 with no added customization fee.

Rip off Organic much? Zach Kling

Actually, no. The only thing similar between Organic and I are that we both make colorful bags from Cordura.

There are many other companies that also make bags just like these.

Furthermore my bags are different dimensions of Organic with a superior closure and fleece lining. The bags also come with Full Strength Bluewater Webbing belts.

I think of this style of bag as a medium of art. Has Organic been a inspiration to me? Yes. It has revolutionized the climbing industry with aesthetics.

Thanks for your concern.


This is something I really enjoy doing and a way to avoid a 'real' job.

Have a good one, Zach!

New bag design out. The 'Talc' is catered to sport climbers with an angled and slightly wider opening.

Any reason behind why its T-V-FA on the bag instead of T-U-FA, just curious, and by the way, I like the bags. Danger-Russ Gordon

Hey Danger!

My theory was that it would look pretty slick as a translation of the 'A'. It is indeed a 'U' not a 'V'. I get asked that question all the time hah

in future revisions of the logo I'll most likely change it.

Thanks for asking! :)

Just make the "A" more rounded to look like a "U".

If you use it send me a chalk bag.

I'm a low-key kind of guy so boring colors are ok.

I ordered a bag from Josh. He is very professional and quick to reply. He is also very willing to customize your bag to how you want it. Can't go wrong here.

Thanks Josh!

would you do one without the "TVFA" badge? I'd likely buy one if so.

honestly, that horrible logo ruins an otherwise beautiful bag.

Allen: Make a mockup logo and we'll talk

Brian: Thanks for the shoutout!

Adam: Absolutely! To be honest I can't wait to redesign the logo. No offense taken! Thanks for your opinion, the feeling is mutual.
Either send me a PM or fill out the form on my website and I'll work you up a master piece!

Thanks for the support; I really appreciate it! :)

Nice looking fit & finish. I assumed he was just going for the old-school latin inscription form of U, ala:

I'm not quite sure what was going through my head when I made the logos. I'm thinking we may need to have a logo design contest of sorts. ;)

I definitely wasn't trying to go too oldschool with the logo

Yo, I'd do something like this. Showing like a stalactite as the U and a tufa as the A. These are sloppy I just did it in paint real quick.
