Description

Crash off your next challenging problem, or crash for nap time.

As you edge your toe out onto a nickel-sized feature, your knuckles are white with crimping force as you hover over the safety of your Metolius Magnum Crash Pad. After the glorious top out, you plummet nine feet back to earth and decide to take a nap. After all, the Magnum's closed-cell padding and open-cell core make this Metolius mattress a worthy crag bed. When beer-thirty calls, and your buddies manage to drag you from a pleasant slumber, clip the rugged, aluminum buckles and sling this pad over your back for the trek to camp.

awesome camp bed and crash pad

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

First, this pad is 6ft long, which makes it an absolutely perfect camp bed. It exactly fits inside my marmot limelight 2p. Second, this pad covers a lot of square feet, giving you the confidence you need to go climb high problems without worrying about missing the pad upon a fall. Third, the foam seems really good. It is definitely on the stiff side, which is ideal for mid to high ball problems, not really ideal for low problems, but that is fine with me. THe carrying capacity does suck a bit, but you can mostly get around it by using the closure flaps and strapping stuff to it with some quick draws. Overall, I have had this pad for four weeks no, about 14 or so boulder sessions and a couple nights of camping, and I absolutely love it. It just barely fits in the trunk of my subaru outback, I dont even have to put the seats down.

This is more or less the gear capacity of the magnum, although I have strapped an entire backpack full of stuff to it before in this manner. This is two pairs of shoes (one is hidden), chalk pot and water bottle.

Burly crash pad covering the entire possible fall area

BEASTLY Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Magnum is exactly what the name suggests: BIG. I've used this over a few sessions and it's a godsend for those who have small groups but still want protection. Of course it's heavier, but you're getting two normal sized pads out, so it's quite understandable. The closure system is also quite acceptable and prevents loss of gear while hiking out.

Good for outdoor woodie

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

We're currently using this crash pad on our outside 12 foot high wall. While it is a bit stiff it's made well and covers a large area. It's large but easy to transport outside and provides extra safety for fall protection on top of rubber mulch we also installed in the fall zone

Such a great pad. I finally got to use it today. It was very cumbersome but the surface area is more than worth the work. Also makes a great couch or bed.

I absolutely love this crash pad!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I not only use this baby to soften my fall while bouldering... but it doubles as a great bed! I put it under my futon for extra height off the floor and for storage. I also use it to sleep on when car camping... fits 2 people nicely. ;)

I have owned this pad twice now and have been very happy with it both times. I traded the first one for a couple of cams before moving to Europe, but once I arrived and started bouldering I decided to replace it. The pad is intelligently designed and easy to adjust due to the numerous handles. The tri fold is not significantly more cumbersome to carry than most other pads I have used. I especially like that this one is narrower, making it easier to carry through dense forests in Germany.

The one downside I would point out is with the combination of stiff foam and the top and bottom closure system it is hard to secure extra gear (shoes, bucket, snacks) in between the folds.

(Here is a photo of it in my Renault Kangoo, prefect camping system)

Sweet crash pad!

Very excellent crashpad. I have been using it for 2 months and have been completely satisfied with this purchase. Huge coverage area!! it's a bit cumbersome to carry but that is to be expected with a tri-folding pad. It has two velcro pockets, one large and one small. My only concern is that the material might not be as durable as the mondo. However, I have put it down on lots of sharp rocks and awkward spots and it appears to be fine!
