The rune pouch storage interface.

The rune pouch is an item that can store 16,000 of three types of runes (except runes found in the Nightmare Zone). Players can cast spells using the runes stored in the pouch, so a rune pouch saves inventory space. Players cannot own more than one rune pouch.

It can be purchased from a Slayer master for 750 Slayer reward points, or purchased from Justine's stuff for the Last Shopper Standing for 75 Last Man Standing points. Alternatively, players can purchase a rune pouch note for the same cost or from another player, which can be exchanged at any bank for a rune pouch.

Players can speak to the magic combat tutor in Lumbridge to toggle an option which allows runes to be placed directly into the rune pouch upon pickup and runecrafting, provided that there is a stack of that rune already in the pouch with enough space in it to hold all of them. Alternatively, this option can be toggled from the Settings interface.

If players die while carrying a rune pouch in the Wilderness or in a PvP world, they will lose the rune pouch, unless it has been locked via use of a trouver parchment. It should be noted that the Trouver parchment does not protect runes stored within a Rune pouch upon death.
