Straightforward and Featherlight

I've put it through the wringer

Bouldering pads don't need to be complicated, in fact, they often work best when kept simple and straightforward. The Misty Mtn Highlander strikes that balance perfectly, not overdoing it with excess pockets, straps, or bells and whistles. Instead, it's cut down to exactly what you need - a taco style pad that fits the need for a single circuiting pad, double layering for your big-fall-potential proj, or contouring to cover a rounded edge or corner. I tested this pad on committing deadpoints in Joe's Valley, techy topouts in Little Cottonwood Canyon, and - most importantly - as a seat with friends around the campfire. Don't be mistaken: this isn't a large coverage highball pad but it definitely isn't pretending to be. It's minimalist, light as a feather, and well-built, with 3 closure straps outfitted with metal buckles that'll last a long time and a single carrying strap. The backpack and waist straps are comfortable but don't add bulk, I found it easy to stuff shoes and gear inside or on the pad for the approach to the boulders, and the handle was well placed to cinch down to the rest of my pads while carrying. Because it isn't super thick and the foam is on the softer side, it works well as a lowball pad, to help keep you from dabbing but still protecting your falls. The softer foam also comes in handy when double-stacking, since I felt like I wouldn't roll an ankle as easily if I landed on one of the edges. Lastly, the budget-friendly price means it's an easy pad to pick up when you wanna diversify your bouldering kit. Photo by Lindsi Lake

It's Neat

I've used it several times

Pretty heavy, but definitely worth your life to carry around and get some sick boulders in. Definitely would recommend if anyone needs a beginner pad.

Burly but an ankle saver

I've used it several times

It's heavy but man it's worth it. I took this for some soft sending that was 50 yards from my car. It's soft, easy to slide around, and cleans up really quickly! I guess keeping it heavy protects your ankles and cutting weight would just lead to hurting legs. Snag it and Send!

Big and burly

I've used it several times

This is the pad you want for those big tall boys. For a single fold, its quite large and its thick. It's a bit heavy for those far off boulders, but for the one's closer to the road - this is the one that will keep your ankles safe.
