Mondo Crash Pad
With more than twelve square feet of landing space, the Black Diamond Mondo Crash Pad has your back when you hit up some of the tallest and scariest boulder problems. Black Diamond made the exterior out of an extremely durable nylon to protect it from the harsh punishments boulderers inflict on their pads every time they head up the mountain. Black Diamond also gave the top a PU coating for water-resistant and abrasive protection, and the bottom has a rubber coating for waterproof protection that also prevents the pad from slipping underneath your feet. Inside the pad, you get two thin layers of closed-cell PU foam on the top and bottom that dissipate the force of your fall, and you also have a thick layer of high-compression PU foam in the center that keeps the pad sturdy and ready to catch you for many years.
The Mondo features padded shoulder straps and a waist belt for your comfort while you hike, four handles (one on each corner) help your buddies move the pad underneath you while you climb, and two extra stowable shoulder webbings add convenience. This pad folds down small for easy travel, and hooking buckles keep the folded pad secure and ready to go.

- Q & A
This crash pad is huge, which is both a pro and a con. It is big enough to mitigate the danger on many boulder problems all by itself. It is super durable and cushions well on a fall. It is a bit heavy to lug around, but the waist strap helps position the weight in a supportive way. It is tricky to get through tight trees, but your friends will appreciate the top notch entertainment provided watching you struggle through the trees.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My first thought when picking up the Mondo pad was,
Please tell me BD bought good foam this time around?
