Crash pads, bouldering pads, and bouldering mats all serve one crucial purpose: to lessen the impact of an outdoor bouldering fall by placing a protective foam layer between the climber and the ground. A crash pad can have various attributes that adds to the cost: the type of folding system, durability of materials, foam types and layers, pad size and other special features like floor mat, back straps, storage space, and the ability to turn the crash pad into a chair. You can find the best affordable bouldering pads to more featured, high density bouldering crash mats with comfortable closure buckles and handles making them easy to carry while moving between boulders. Choose from brands like Metolius, Madrock, Petzl, Organic, Cassin or Black Diamond Crash Pads.
