Chalk bag is great. Mine is purple (the one they sent) with a black swath down the back side where the pocket is. I was looking for something with a zippered pocket to keep my keys and some cash, ID & credit card in. The pocket is a little tight, but I can get those things in it. I don't know that you could get in an energy bar-it seems to small for that, but I haven't tried. The chalk bag itself is pretty deep and holds lots of chalk. The loop for hanging off of a belt or on your harness is pretty wide and doesn't accommodate a carabiner very well.
All in all, it's exactly what I was looking for. A moderately sized bag that will hold a lot of chalk with a pocket for keys, ID and some mula! All for a reasonable price.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
