Mad Rock Triple Mad Pad Bouldering Pad Review

Besides the Triple’s budget price, the bi-fold is its most intriguing feature, letting the pad fold up into a narrow, 24-inch package.

Mad Rock Triple Mad Pad $239.95
Real Estate:
22 square feet
Thickness:
5 inches
Weight
: 25 pounds
Design
: Double hinge with three pads

The Triple Mad Pad is one-of-a-kind. It is also the only one with three hinged pads that fold out accordion style, converts into a comfortable lounge chair and comes with a separate cleaning mat. Besides the Triple’s budget price, the bi-fold is its most intriguing feature, letting the pad fold up into a narrow, 24-inch package. However, the bi-fold and the firm padding limit the amount of gear you can wedge between the folds. Metal hooks and straps bind the three pads together. Three inches of open-cell foam and two inches of closed-cell foam superbly cushion long falls. A large handle on one end lets you scoot the pad around, but more handles would be welcome. For durability, the Triple’s all “Durable Nylon” shell, which is lighter than the material used on most pads, showed wear after minimal use.
