It is a hinged pad that features nylon construction, metal hook buckles, padded shoulder straps and the ability to separate the halves for sleeping or long traverses. The hinged design is advantageous in that it is quicker to fold and unfold and it lays perfectly flat when open. It also helps to prolong the foam life. Ingenious anti-hinge straps allow the boulderer to pull the halves together tightly, effectively eliminating any gutter effect and also stiffening the pad.

“The Stealth is like the group’s goofy little brother: If you want to squeeze just one more pad in the car, the Misty does the trick,” said one Colorado tester. “This little guy is great for sit starts and leveling out landings.” This is the only pad in the review that separates into two parts, making it great for filling in small gaps and covering long traverses. The petite nature of the Stealth was great for shorter climbers, who tend to drag the bottoms of larger pads when descending steep terrain. Backpack straps, a waistbelt, and briefcase handles offer a nice variety of carrying options, but beware that smaller items carried inside might migrate out the bottom or sides when hauling or boulder hopping. The pad’s extra-long straps were annoying and tended to catch on everything, but that’s easily solved with a knife and a lighter.
