Review by philchai on Nov. 26, 2008
One of the thriftiest buys, with respect to crash pads, the pad is significantly thicker (and harder) than others available on the market. The buckles and straps are durable and have not torn off yet (as indicated by other reviews). A step-off mat is provided to help with minimizing rock erosion (leave no trace philosophy). To combat its lack of surface area coverage, the velcro lining (on the outer edge of the pad) allows you to string together several crash pads.

Key Pros:
* Economical
* Thick
* Step-off pad included
* Can be strung together
For cons, the small surface area is a turn-off. In addition, the pad is not incredibly forgiving when you land on it; it is, however, softer than the ground so it does serve its intended purpose. The crash pad is a two-piece design so it is ideal for flat level surfaces in order to avoid sprained ankles from landing dead center on the pad.

Key Cons:
* Hard landing
* Small surface area
* Two-piece design.
Overall, the Mad Rock Mad Pad is a decent, economical crash pad that serves its purpose. I would recommend stringing at least 2 together as a good alternative to buying one larger crash pad. Black Diamond, Misty Mountain, and Metolius also have Quality pads.

Good price for the size.
A little soft for my taste. I have also heard complaints about the durability.
Metolius has an excellent crash pad line.

good price, easy to carry. I like how the two halves are connected solidly to make one continuous pad.
the little mat is handy for wiping shoes off
velcro along the bottom collects dirt and leaves easily.
Black Diamond and Metolius are nice too.

Nice and stiff for high falls, you can velcro several together for seamless landing, makes a great couch
not a taco

its softer than the ground
webbing ripped after 2 uses, somewhat awkward, not at all comfortable on your back

Large capacity, cheap, thick, backpack straps and you got yourself a first class couch round the campfire.
I'd recommend this one.
