Drew Rwrote a review of Metolius Session Crash Pad on April 30, 2017
Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Good first pad for beginner/intermediate climbers, and a great supplementary pad if you've got something bigger as well. Good thickness at 4 inches with fairly firm foam is a good balance of protection without being overly heavy or cumbersome to move around. Good secure closure and solid carry system keeps the pad higher up so it doesn't get in your way while scrambling or hiking steep approaches. Solid pad overall and pretty unbeatable for the price.
