Expensive rope bags are for suckas! A small, 6x8 tarp at REI costs $3-5.

If you want a bag for jumping from route to route at the crag, the Ikea shopping bag is the bomb.

Ikea bags are great until the rope coils around the straps and makes a big mess. Plus the dust stays in.

I like rope bags:
no coiling (Coiling 60 m+ ropes is a bitch)
easy end finding
(Tip: if you always tie the top end to the bag with an overhand and the bottom with a fig8 you NEVER have to search for your rope end to start climbing...)
Your rope lives longer (less dirt )

I think you could spend your money on worse things than on a good rope bag. But its not necessary.
