Crush and then chill.

Mad Rock made its Mad Pad Crash Pad with a cushy five inches of foam padding to boost your confidence as you top out the mantle on your problem. Closed-cell foam on the top of the Mad Pad disperses the force of your fall into the open-cell foam on the bottom. This Mad Rock crash pad converts into an oversized lounge chair when it's time to relax between sends.

  • Converts into a chair
  • Five inches of padding to boost confidence on highballs
  • Unbreakable metal buckles
  • Padded shoulder straps for easy transport

First Boulder Pad

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought two of these for my home climbing wall and to boulder outside (normally sport climb but occasionally boulder). This has been an EXCELLENT pad. It has taken months of abuse and holds its form well.

We also use it as a sleeping mat in our tent at night (and actually use the lounge chair option) when car camping. I absolutely love this and will be buying two more of these for extra protection at the home gym. Great product and fun colors!

First Boulder Pad

Good Pad - Blue is Royal Blue

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Pretty solid pad for the price! The blue is more of a royal blue then the turquoise-y color in the photo. Should’ve gone with the Hera blue... Definitely difficult to bottom out and love how easy it is to turn into a couch!

    The Mad Rock Mad Pad is one of the least expensive medium size bouldering pads we tested and has some of the thickest and stiffest foam out there. It was nearly impossible to "bottom out" on sharp rocks under the pad from any height. For its size, it is relatively light and compact. This is our Best Buy Award winner for bouldering crash pads because it is among the least expensive, most versatile, and well-featured pads available. That said, it is very stiff and low falls can be slightly jarring. If you don't do many tall problems, you might want a more forgiving pad with an angled hinge or a softer landing. Overall, the Mad Pad has the thickest piece of foam you can get for the money.

    Pad has barely changed in 10 yrs, but...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    that’s because Mad Rock more or less got it right the first time. I’m far from a fan of most things Mad Rock makes - generally I’ve found the quality and design to be a bit off, but somehow they nailed it with this pad. The design to secure the hinge (i.e. to prevent punching through) is well thought out and the system to join it to other pads is genius. I have one from 10 years ago that I’ve used and abused and one I just bought - if anything, the quality seems to have improved. Definitely recommend.

    "It's dope."

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    My brother got this for Christmas, and living in Utah it's too cold to get out to boulder so he hasn't been able to use it yet for climbing, but he loved the density of it. He's super stoked to use it.
    Also the title was the exact thing he said when he got it.


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Probably the best option for anyone just starting out or anyone looking to boulder by themselves. Having a portable couch is always convenient but this pad is also sturdy and well made; it can take a beating and if it's taken care of, it will last for quite a while.

    Bulky But For Good Reason

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    The only dislike I have with the pad is that while transporting it is it's bulky. The functionality on this however makes up for it all though. The thickness of the pad is calming when you're on a highball. My favorite part about the pad is that it doubles as a couch by extending it's straps.

    So far so good

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I dont boulder too much to need a big pad or enough to spend more money than what I did on this. My bouldering is a result of not having a partner for that day and this pad seems to be a solid substitute. 5 inches of foam is plenty thick to catch some bigger falls and my feet or back has yet to complain.

    mustache pad!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Really solid pad for the price, great size and shape and easy to carry. I have used this pad for years but the mustache edition is pretty swell!

    Rad Mad Pad

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is a pretty sweet crash pad. 5" of foam is nice for all sorts of falls. The buckles are nice and the fabric feels durable. I started bringing it to the crag regardless if I'm bouldering or not. It's nice to chill on chair mode when the homies are throwing down on sport routes. Can't beat the price either.

    Worth it

      This is by no means the best crash pad out there but for the price there is simply nothing better. Definitely would recommend to anyone who is new to climbing or looking for another pad for more ground coverage.

      Awesome Pad and Great Customer Service

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This thing is great as a crash pad, a bed, a couch, and a backpack while climbing. The foam is very firm and the fabric and straps are super durable. I ordered two for a trip to JTree and Bishop, unfortunately there was an error at BackCountry's warehouse and only one was shipped. I called their customer service and they were trying to get the second pad to be overnighted to my hotel in Jtree for free! Which was awesome. Unfortunately, the plan didn't pan out (can't remember what happened exactly). But their customer service stayed in contact, refunded my money for the second pad, and even offered a great discount for when I was ready to buy it again. I gotta say, not many companies do things like that anymore.

      Portable Couch

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      1 year later this thing is still in great condition. Just punch it a few times to get the dirt off.

      The "couch" feature is amazing - space for two! I can fit 3 in the trunk of my forester, and still cram some stuff on the sides.

      Good at all the things you need

        Light and thick pad that is surprisingly nice to fall on.

        Yo, This Pad

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        This pad rules. I purchased this as my second crash pad to team it up with the R3 and what a pair. It's not that big when laid out, but light in weight and much more fun to carry around from boulder to boulder. I've got the best of both worlds now.

        I've used this pad every day since purchasing it (yes, every day) and it has withstood the Arizona desert ground like a boss. It hasn't softened up at all yet either. From what I've read and what I've seen, this pad is going to last a very long time. Did I mention how light it is? Carrying it on my back or like a suitcase is a breeze when going up and down the sides of mountains.

        I haven't taken a big fall on this yet, but after a couple shorter falls, I have a lot of confidence in this pad to climb higher and higher. It's seriously such a great crash pad for anyone on a budget. Very simplistic and gets the job done. Oh, and did I tell you how light it is?


        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Its a great crash pad

        Love This Pad

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This pad is a great to add to your pad collection. It is nice a firm and doesn't soften up too fast making it last several seasons. Its not the biggest pad but works great with other pads, or as a personal pad for those solo bouldering sessions. One of the best things about this pad is the chill-ability, as it turns into a small couch for relaxing around the boulders or around the campfire.
