The baffles of the new R3 contain recycled EVA foam that would normally be collected and shipped for disposal. With the lower costs of manufacturing the R3, we were able to provide a 1680 denier shell that is the most durable in the industry. The ground shield unfolds to protect the R3's suspension system from dirt and moisture.

It make many niceBy: Raph on 27 August 2015Very good pad. I love how it drapes over stuff, and you can put gear inside it when it's packed up (incl. a backpack). One little moan is that it doesn't sit perfectly straight when wearing it. Other than that, it kicks all sorts of ass. Certainly didn't find it too heavy to carry, and I'm only little.
Great, but HeavyBy: - ET on 3 February 2015Compared to all other pads I've seen/used, this one is heavy. Factor in their great design for chucking in tons of gear when folded up and it gets even heavier on your back. Not a deal breaker, but noticeable. Love the recycled content, suspension, stash pocket, shoulder strap cover. Wish it folded a bit better as it can be clunky to move around or wear on our back (empty) compared to other pads that have a hinge.
great for uneven groundsBy: Brendan on 19 November 2014A great boulder pad with a good design that gives you plenty of storage space. Climbing anchors got the gear too me fast, however parts were missing... I didn't receive suspension belt with the pad but CA customer service got back to me on the issue very fast and sorted it out
Excellent PadBy: Boulderer on 17 November 2013Took the R3 for its first solid test out to the Black Range bouldering area near Canberra. Lots of new development work with loose rock and bits fallen trees littering most of the landing areas. The ability for the R3 to drape over these obstacles provided really good protection. Also useful was the storage area in the middle where shoes and other gear could be quickly stuffed when moving between problems. One of the seasoned climbers in the group mentioned that is was the most comfortable pad they had used (and made a great sleeping mat as well!)
