Great for aerials too.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It's soft enough to break a fall, but firm enough to walk on it too without losing balance. It folds up so I can store it. Has a bunch of straps for carrying it. Great use for aerial arts like lyra and silks.

Poorly Made?

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Just returned it after having it out of the box less than 24 hours. The stitching holding the velcro on where the pad opens to the foam was torn away on both halves of the pad. Can't imagine how this product would hold up in use! Bummer.

Great pad to protect from falls

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have three teenage boys who use these pads. We built a ninja warrior course and these pad have literally saved my kids' butt! They protect their falls and keep them from getting hurt. I have three of them. They are durable and lightweight for easy transportation. Best crash pad around.

Greatness

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

All around awesome, took a fall a big fall today and didn't feel a thing. I haul around two of them since I do a lot of bouldering by myself. At 10lbs it's no problem carrying two at a time, and they are also great for a quick nap or rest. The velcro for the shoulder straps comes undone occasionally with the two strapped together but one by itself is no problem. Don't hesitate, they are great.

'ol faithful

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have had my Madrock pad for over 15 years and it continues to be our best pad. It has been durable and dependable for soft falls. The thickness of this pad gives you added safety and confidence when falling from high balls. When bouldering solo, only one Mad Pad is needed...there is no need to stack more pads on top of this one! Would love to own another Mad Pad to Velcro them together to make an even better LZ.

My ankles are safe again!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I picked up this mat because it was on sale. I'm happy with it's weight and padding that it provides. It's easy to toss on your shoulders and move from place to place. It comes stiff, but breaks in well. If I were to do it again, I'd probably try to buy one that's a bit larger, but still, it's a great pad and I recommend it.

Safe and sound

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I purchased two of these pads. Knowing how they performed for quite some time. I knew it was time to replace the two I currently have been using. They are a little stiffer then the ones I currently own. Which translates to a safer mentality when on the rock. I know if I blow a hold the the Mad Pad has my bacon. I would recommend these to anyone who wishes to get a great value and have a pad that will last for quite some time.

Solid entry level pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought this pad to replace a Metolius pad I had been borrowing long-term from a friend traveling internationally. It's a solid basic crash bad without too many bells or whistles. It's certainly not the most bomber pad in terms of construction, but it'll get the job done. It had a rip on the outside within a few days, but that's entirely cosmetic. My main worry is the sew-in points of the various straps, which appear to be starting to come undone with time. The straps themselves also feel "cheap" compared to other pad straps, but they don't seem to have any issue, so it's hard for me to fault them too much.
Overall, this pad lets me get out and boulder safely, it holds my shoes and chalk when closed and doesn't give me any issues. If you're looking for a first pad, I definitely recommend it.

Rad Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my first crash pad, so I must admit I'm not the most knowledgeable in this department, however, it has served me quite well. No broken ankles or rough bail-outs. Really dig the chair feature, as its super comfy once it's broken in. Best part is the backpack straps for those long approaches. I would have liked to have seen a pocket for snacks and gear, but its not a big deal. Great, affordable first pad- I'd highly recommend it!

Great Pad.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Ive been borrowing them from my friends for years now, and finally got around to buying my own. 2 of them actually. great quality, they attach together via velcro flaps, and turns into a great camp couch. best piece of car camping gear ever. Priced to not break the walled, built to break your fall. 5 stars.......
and it comes in green!!

Gets the job done.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It seems like this crash pad will never die. I've slept on it a bunch too. Easy to move around, from boulder to boulder.

Wish I had a Thumbs Up Emoticon

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

What can I say, this is already among the most popular crash pads we carry here on backcountry. I've used this several times on several trips, and it's saved my ass numerous times. It's got a quick and easy metal buckle so when you get to the destination you're on the wall in no time. It's a crash pad, and there aren't too many technicalities behind it, it does its job as a crash pad and it's super light. Really nice to sit and lounge on when you're firing up the grill during the trip as well!

I'm MAD (in a good way) about this PAD!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I love this pad. It really made my climbing trip down to Zion a blast! The boulders there are pretty tall so having this under me made me feel safe and boosted my confidence. Falls are no problem the pad is not too stiff but not soft at all so when you take a fall you are in for a solid landing. The transportation of the pad is really nice. It is light and the straps (both waist and shoulder)are comfortable and can easily be adjusted. Also the metal buckles keep the pad closed and secure and do not budge as you are walking so there is no fiddling with anything. Also it's nice to have around when you are sitting and eating lunch or just resting It folds nicely and fits in the trunk of my rav4 and still leaves room for all my other gear that I might need for the day. If you are looking for a sweet pad I would suggest getting this one I'm actually waiting to get another one so that I can have two for longer problems.
