Mad Rock Mad Pad Review

Mad Rock Mad Pad, $120

The Mad Pad takes the cake for pure shock absorption. With over 4.75 inches of foam, this lunker of a pad almost never bottomed out. The hinged closure and speed buckles make opening and closing a snap. I would have liked an accessory pocket, but since it costs only $120, I can’t really complain—this pad is a heck of a bargain. Velcro flaps on the bottom and sides let you secure it to other pads if you need to create a larger landing zone. Mad Rock: 503-797-1952, www.mad-rockshoes.com.
