Joe LeMasterwrote a review of Metolius Recon Crash Pad on October 6, 2018
Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Metolius always seems to make quality, durable gear and this is no exception. Large pad with a unique tri fold design that is no frills and just works, making it easier to navigate through tight trails and fits in the back of my three door Hyundai hatchback easily. A small gripe is that the carpet square to wipe your shoes became very piley (?) upon first use but after pulling off the excess it's not so bad now and still works to clean your shoes. It would be easy to get pads mixed up if other people at the boulders have the same pad but after tying a bandana around one of the numerous handlebars ( a good thing!) I can spot mine out of a pile easily.
