The Evolv Wingman crash pad is a perfect secondary or supplemental crash pad that (especially for such an affordable price), should be considered by any serious boulder. Boulderers will find that the Wingman is easy to transport and excels as a sit start pad, or as a tool to level out landings and covering the gaps between pads.
Keep in mind that the Wingman is not really meant as a primary crash pad since it’s only 1” thick. I wouldn’t recommend it to a beginner boulderer, to anyone looking to purchase their first crash pad, or as a “one-pad quiver.”
But I think boulderers like myself who often climb alone will find the Wingman helps cover a little extra ground and creates a bigger landing area—it often provides the necessary peace of mind to allow me to commit without the security of a spot.
