i'm clearly a bit slow - wtf is a sport or trad chalkbag? do they hold chalk differently? or is it that the chalk required for trad is different to the chalk required for sport? and where does my bouldering chalkbag fit into this?

Worthless poll without "Pancakes" as an option.

No. You need an "indoors" chalkbag, which is not in the OP's poll.

I have 3 chalkbags, large, medium, and small. Cool

The large bag is colored green-and-brown camo, so if I spend all day on a big wall, there's no visual discord.

The medium looks like anybody's sport clothing.

The small one, my sport chalkbag, is painted with a cool abstract pattern, very dynamic. It's like wearing a skimpy bikini -- I like to be seen with it, but I'm kinda self-conscious about people looking at me. Blush

(Edit to add...)
It's Saturday of a long week-end, so why the hell am I composing clever entries on RC.com ? Frown
