Crash onto a cloud.
The new Petzl Nimbo Lightweight Auxiliary Crashpad is the smallest of Petzl's new line of crashpads. It's meant to act as a satellite pad, to accompany a larger pad. It's a great pad to be able to use for sit-starts and covering a break between two pads, or it can be used as a shield to protect highball boulder problems. A carry-handle makes it easy to lug around with you in the woods, and it will be a welcome addition to any boulderer's arsenal.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bought this as a boldering supplement. I knew it was non-foldable, can't really attach to a backpack to carry. You need to use the handle. Way too stiff, hard as board. I love the exterior and thought I could replace the cell foam. Zipper tab is hard to reach. Broke the zipper trying to pull the foam out. Why put one in, when it's not functional?I would feel guilty returning it. So I'm going to try and get it modified, making it more fold-able and with a softer cell foam.
