Review by: Ian Nicholson ⋅ Review Editor, OutdoorGearLab ⋅ February 10, 2014  
The Vortex is a new rope bag from Metolius with a unique and convenient rope loading feature. The Vortex is very similar to Metolius' new larger Ropemaster HC in quality and construction but adds two more carrying handles and a slightly larger rope tarp.
