For a boulderer a good crash pad is essential, and now, with more options than ever, choosing the right crash pad can be tricky. We’ve taken some of the work out for you and tested three pads from some of the top climbing companies in the world. Today we’ll run through the pros and cons, specs and features of the Organic Simple Pad, Metolius Session Pad, and Evolv Maverick. Before we get started let me give you a quick intro to each pad. The Organic Simple is exactly that, a simple design with high quality, stiff foam, tough, durable exterior, customizable features, and is made completely in the US of A. The Metolius Session is the most affordable of the pads, and features some extra bells and whistles like a flap closure system with a stash pocket and carpet for wiping off dirty shoes. The Evolv Maverick is a slightly larger pad, with a width of 40″, has a flap closure system, and is built to take a beating. Now, let’s get into the details.
Four testers couldn’t get enough of this high-quality and functional mat; three-plus months of testing put the Simple at the top of everyone’s list. Thought to have the best foam in the review, this pad’s closedcell top layer with open-cell foam underneath made for comfy landings from five to 20 feet. Each of the four testers gave the pad a solid 5 (out of 5) in durability, after all their dragging, hauling, packing, unpacking, and overall abuse didn’t manage to break a single strap, buckle, or seam. “This pad’s best feature is its toughness,” said one tester.
