Origin balances weight and portability with ample support and protection, so you can save your energy on the walk-in yet still push yourself on the project.
- 11cm foam sandwich cushions fall and prevents bottoming out
- Taco design is better for uneven landings with no central fold
- Reverse folding closure provides a flatter, more stable landing surface
Origin opens to a mid-sized 134cm x 100cm pad area with a taco-style fold. Taco mats are better for uneven surfaces as the uninterrupted landing zone means you don't have to worry about losing an ankle down a fold. The 'reverse taco' system folds with the firmer landing side on the outside to stop your pad from rocking on uneven ground.
We've used two different layers of foam: a 7cm layer of open cell foam to absorb impacts; and a 4cm layer of closed cell foam to spread your weight across the pad so you don't bottom out (hit the ground through your pad). Our foam is also cross-linked, a fancy molecule-bonding process which makes it more shock absorbent and resistant to repeated compressions.
This foam lives in a super abrasion-resistant 1100D Cordura® outer cover with a DWR coating to help it endure the rocky nature of being a bouldering pad. All mat covers are sewn and reinforced with bar tack stitching in our UK Factory next door, and come with a 25-year Alpine Bond.
Origin has 3 carrying configurations for comfort on even the most scenic of walk-ins! The removable rucksack straps and waist belt are on the landing side to preserve the life of your foam and stop you getting a muddy back when you fold it up to carry. The rucksack straps also double as a shoulder strap for hanging on another pad or boulder hopping. You’ve also got side grab handles for shifting your pad into position.
