I love this pad. It has saved me more than once. Thick and stiff enough to throw over rocky landings and still soft enough to make those highball falls a lot more reasonable. While I don't recommend this as your only pad unless you climb with a posse all the time, it is too big for some landings. If you climb alone this pad is great for making you feel more comfortable without a spotter. Also can not recommend this if you climb in places where there is a lot of bushwacking involved in getting to the climbing. It is really wide and tough to hike through the bushes. All in all I love this pad and take it with me everyday bouldering.
