Mad Rock Mad Pad
 Mad Rock Mad Pad
The Mad Rock Mad Pad is one of the least expensive pads out of all the medium size bouldering pads we tested and it has some of the thickest and stiffest foam. It was nearly impossible to "bottom out"...

Black Diamond Mondo Pad
 Black Diamond Mondo Pad
The name says it all: the Black Diamond Mondo Pad is one mondo piece of foam. It is a crash pad that seems like overkill in the store. But when you take your first big fall on one, you wonder how you ...

Mad Rock R3
 Mad Rock R3
The R3 is the best pad we tested for conforming to lumpy landings. It is also one of the best pads for steep low-ball falls on your backside and it packs gear better than almost any other pad. It is a...

Travelchair Slacker
 Travelchair Slacker
The Slacker is great for those times when you need a quick seat. It's extremely easy to use and packs down small so storage space is not an issue. It's essentially a stool that folds up, so it doesn't...

REI Flex Lite
 REI Flex Lite
The Flex Lite is a great little chair. It's like the Alite Mantis but is half the price, sits higher off the ground, and is a little less durable. Both chairs use a similar design: they have tent-pole...
