The rune pouch is an item that can store 16,000 of three types of runes. Players can cast spells using the runes stored in the pouch, saving inventory space. Players cannot own more than one rune pouch. It can be taken to Entrana, since runes aren't prohibited by the monks.

The rune pouch storage interface.

It can be purchased from a Slayer master via the Slayer Equipment shop for 1,200,000 coins (ironman accounts cannot buy one in this manner) or for 750 slayer reward points.

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, provided that there is a stack of that rune already in the pouch with enough space in it to hold all of them.

If a player dies 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. If a player is killed by another player, neither player will receive the rune pouch. Since the death mechanics update on 22 May 2015, it is kept on death outside of PVP, along with any runes in it, despite what the current "Items lost on Death" menu claims.
