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.

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.

Do the pads being sent now have the new design feature of a waist belt?

Hey Robby
They sure do have a waist belt and it is awesome for those really steep approaches. I hope that this helps and let us know if you have any other questions!

How is this pad for packing some gear...

How is this pad for packing some gear inside? I know most pads can fit shoes, water, chalk, but any chance of getting a rope and harness into it for days of bouldering and sport climbing?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Antonio
I think if you utilize the back pack straps and waist belt and use some carabiners to attach a rope, shoes, harness ect. to them you can successfully haul all that gear up any approach. However to fold the gear in would be tough. You might be able to get away with a harness, shoes and chalk but a rope on being folded in would be a challenge and would be too heavy. I hope that this helps and if you want to chat about it more just chat in and ask for Jane H.

Love this pad!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The pad velcros to other Madrock Mad Pads, making flat long runner landings a dream to come off the problem. I've seen 5 of these velcro-ed together at the landing of Bumboy, Centerpede and Millipede at Horsepens 40 in Alabama - making the landing there unbeatable - no rolled ankles that day :)

I've been using this pad for 11 years of bouldering, and have yet to roll an ankle

Great Beginner Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great first pad for the aspiring boulderer. Little undersized for it to be used alone, but with a couple of these underneath me I have no anxiety going for a highball problem. Still fairly stiff after three years, but it's definitely softened up.

Crash Pad or Chair, you be the judge?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is one of the thickest and safest crash pads out there right now. The weight is very manageable and if you find yourself lacking a decent pack it doubles up to fit a fair amount of gear in it for those longer approaches. Then it's time for lunch and you can turn this into a serious couch for two. Comfortable all the way around and a must have for high ball drops.

Does what it's supposed to

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Pad was a little smaller than I anticipated, but it's light, the straps are good for carrying it on your back, and it gets the job done. The foam is a little stiff, but it still saves you every time.

Saves my ass every time.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Mad Rock Mad Pad does exactly what I bought it for. I am completely satisfied with this product in every way, especially considering the price I paid for it.

Good Pad

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I just got this pad and have no complaints at all. It seems very durable and it is easy to carry with straps for your shoulders and a handle.
