Victoriawrote a review of Mad Rock R3 Crash Pad on October 12, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've used the R3 on two bouldering trips now, and it is awesome for creating soft landings and protecting awkward obstacles on the ground. It's also great for carrying stuff with the 'burrito' style backpack wrap without anything falling out the bottom as you hike. The flexible roll-up design also helps when you are trying to fit one last crash pad into your car - the R3 squishes into weird spaces quite nicely! Overall a great pad and great value for the price.
