Petzl Pad Party

This video is a really similar vibe to other Petzl RocTrip videos, but it's all bouldering! The athletes/climbers are all decked out with a ton of Petzl pads, and you can see them in various configurations throughout the video. At a touch over 8 minutes I found the video to be a fantastic part of my lunch break and felt like it went by quickly (and entertainingly).

Rock and Run Gear Review no rating given just a review

In spite of a few minor drawbacks, for me the Petzl pads offer the best balance of innovative features, comfortable carry, solid durability and good impact protection currently available. Whilst not cheap they do last well and the carry system alone is considerably more advanced and comfortable than any other pad I’ve used. In the Alto and Cirro, Petzl have certainly set a new standard in top-end crash pad design and function.
