Light as paper – strong as a rock!

A chalk bag made of paper? Paper that's tear- and water-proof, withstands even 40°C in the washing machine and on top of that also looks nice? Yep! You understood right! With our PAPNU we present a chalk bag that perfectly matches function and design. These stylish chalk bags in the designs BRIGHT, SHADE, POLYGON, FOGAL, DA VINCI and WALL CREEPER are made of tear-proof special paper, weigh in at a only 56g (without waist belt) and are super resistant. Also, they are 100% vegan, made in Austria and all raw materials for this quality product come from the EU. Sounds nice? We agree!

Lovely – inside and outside!

Neoprene. What most people only know from scuba diving was now used by us for the inside of our PAPNU PERFORMANCE. Neoprene is so wonderfully "close-meshed" that no chalk can get into the space between the interior and exterior bag. In addition, the material is resistant against bacteria, germs and fungi, its production is environmentally friendly and it has good adhesive properties. This way the chalk is distributed well within the chalk bag and coats your fingers cleanly. In addition, every PAPNU is equipped with a loop for a boulder brush, an adjustable and removable waist belt and two loops to attach to the belt.


Buy a chalk bag - do something good!

For the PAPNU WALLCREEPER we organized something very special, because let's be honest: Which animal could match AUSTRIALPIN better than the wall creeper? Its home is the alpine area, its territory are the rock faces which it approaches from the bottom and flies all the way up at an incredible speed – yes, even our passion can be found in its name. And because the “flying alpine rose” can also be marveled at at Alpenzoo in Innsbruck, we now adopted this fascinating animal and designed a new PAPNU in its honor. When buying this chalk bag, part of the proceeds benefits the protection of the wall creeper. 



For the lightgear junkies among you

If you thought that the 56g of the PAPNU PERFORMANCE are already the end of the story, you have to be very strong now: It gets even lighter! The PAPNU HELI.UM with its two awesome designs NO.PRINT and STONED is not only totally hip, but also the absolute fly weight among the chalk bags with only 13,7 grams (or 20 grams including the supplied waist belt). Okaay, right, this feature also won't defy the laws of gravity, but at least these things weigh less than a package of chewing gum – which already comes pretty close to flying. Right?

A lot of quality – little weight

Very often less is more – except when it comes to quality! True to the motto "Never change a running system", the promise of quality is therefore also valid for the PAPNU HELI.UM: It’s made in Austria from tear-proof special paper, 100% vegan and machine washable at 40°C. All raw materials for this chalk bag come from the EU. We like!

Who produces the PAPNUs and especially where?

We came together by happy coincidence: AUSTRIALPIN and Mapbagrag, two companies that share similar values and the goal of sustainable production. Mapbagrag, based in the Styrian city of Graz, is specialized in the development and production of products made of a special type of paper and is an expert in handling and working with this paper. Working together with their creative team, we quickly realised the mutual potential. With the PAPNU chalk bag we brought our first collaboration to life, a chalkbag that is both light and durable and available in 6 different designs. Stylefactor 100%. It carries the label "Made in Austria" for good reason.


Produced in Austria with raw materials from the EU - this definitely complies with our values and standards. The helping hands who prepare the packaging, the interior/exterior and many other things are the wonderful people of the non-profit association "Jugend am Werk". Without their dedication, the magbags and PAPNUs wouldn’t be what they are today!
