Say goodbye to all your bouldering blues with the Mad Rock Duo Pad the next time you're headed out for an afternoon of sending blocks. The Duo's extra strap attaches your second pad to a daisy chain system so you can carry all the ground-fall protection you need in one fell swoop. With your eye on the highball prize, you know you'll want to conserve your energy to really give your problem your all, so strap on the Duo with its convenient soft-molded EVA hipbelt and load-lifting straps to efficiently carry your gear. Clip your shoes to the extra chain loops and slide your water bottle, chalk, and beanie in the expanding pocket for easy carry during the hike in to the boulder field. Once you've made it to the rocks, a hook-and-loop connection flap holds your pads together for continuous floor coverage as you work the moves. The Duo's added welcome mat gives you the luxury of wiping your shoes on this pad, instead of settling for the shins of your pants so you can have precise, clean footwork for all your sends.

Our Verdict - Editors' Choice - Outdoor Gear Lab:
With thick foam and excellent functionality, the Mad Rock Duo took our Editors' Choice Award home. For climbers who want to carry multiple crash pads at once, it is a uniquely designed pad with a strap system to make this task relatively comfortable. A large pouch and two straps on the back of the pad accommodate the addition of a second pad. Its stiff foam was great for high falls and a large footprint makes it a good pad on its own. The Duo has many features, including a water bottle pouch, integrated doormat, and straps that convert the pad into a couch. It shined while padding even landings and we couldn't get it to bottom out, even in long falls.
Sweet love pad!
This thing was great and I would buy another one if I needed one! Only thing I found bad was the blue holder for second pad curls out, but purly cosmetic.
Rated "Editor's Choice" on Gear Labs
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Was going to buy another big pad from Organic but they are really heavy. After reading the review on Outdoor Gear Lab, and having a 30% off coupon for Backcountry, I decided to give this pad a shot....Sooo glad I did. This pad is one of the best in every way. It is light but the padding is solid. Loaded with features, my favorite being the pocket for carrying an extra pad or pack. Suspension system is fully adjustable and has removable hip belt. This thing even makes a nice couch.
My only knock is the shoe mat. I've never been a fan of these and this one obstructs the big carry handle when closed up.
All in all I would highly recommend this pad over any other big pad.
Best pad around
This thing is the mega of crash pads. The foam is amazing and the suspension system to keep you strapped in is insane. Also loading up other pads is way to easy. Like floating through the trails otw to the boulders here in the southeast.
Mad Rock Duo Pad
Do away with those clunky straps and ropes to attach another pad for carrying. The built in carrier flap easily carries another pad behind it and becomes the protector flap when the pad is in use. In anticipation of the added weight to the system, we’ve constructed the pad with a robust suspension system that boasts soft molded EVA. Comes with other premium features such as a welcome mat, water bottle holder, load lifters and the excess strap pouch.
