An uninterrupted slab of three and a half inches (89 mm) of high-quality foam, the Drop Zone Pad by Black Diamond has a large carrying capacity. Built with two and a half inches (64 mm) of open-cell foam for energy absorption and one inch (25 mm) of closed-cell foam for force dissipation, its taco design and bottom and side flaps (with stainless steel buckles) let you stuff it full of gear. An accessory pocket on the side flap secures your small essentials. The removable, padded shoulder straps and hip belt (mounted high on the pad for clearance in tight spots) provide a comfortable carry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A little pricy, but an overall great crash pad. I got this bad boy for Christmas and couldn't wait for the weather to shape up, so I could try it out. It doesn't have as much give as I expected, but that just makes it better at absorbing your impact. So far I've used this for some bouldering and parkour and have been satisfied with the results. I'd feel safe taking up to a fifteen or twenty foot fall on this thing. The only issue is that it's a tad small, so aim well. The uses for it are endless, as it also works as a great suitcase and will be added to my slackline setup. The light design and easy-to-carry straps only add to the Drop Zone Pad's greatness.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is one BOSS crash pad! Got this pad and immediately headed out to Gov. Dodge in Wisco to test her out. The taco design, along with the mesh flap work super legit to store your gear while you hike to your favorite spot. There's a pocket on the flap for storing a few knick-knacks, but it can't hold too much when you have the pad folded up and cinched down. The pad isn't too heavy on your back, and the waist belt works well to secure while hiking. I haven't done any highballs with it yet, but it served its purpose on the overhang, traverse probs I was working on. The taco shell works well to conform to rocky terrain also. Enjoy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pad is great at first but wears out quickly. I have had this pad for over two years. At first it performed amazing with the foam being both soft on the joints when you fall and hard enough to never bottom out. Now the foam is becoming really soft. The closure flap is great for storing a pack or shoes. The straps could be padded a little more and the waist belt buckle was worthless very quickly. The loops that connect the straps to the pad could be reinforced. Mine recently broke and the home repair job isn't working well. The price is pretty good for the area and thickness of the pad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent first pad, comfortable and convenient. This was my first bouldering pad, and it is an excellent started pad. I use it mostly for solo trips. On some problems, it's the only pad I bring with me.,,Later on, as you pickup more pads, this one fits nicely to close up any gaps on a pad system.,,Very comfortable....very very comfortable. ,,Also, the 'taco' shell design is nice because packed up you can stuff shoes, chalk bag, food and anything else you need into it, the buckle system at the bottom prevents anything from falling out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Overall great for traveling and for solo missions. You can buy thicker pads for this kind of money but in my experience a wider surface area is more useful than an extra half and inch of foam. and this pad has the widest surface area i've seen in this price range. The fact that this pad has a no creases in the middle adds to its overall landing area and makes for a solid, yet cushioned, landing surface no matter what the angle. The bottom has a water-proof and non slip fabric. The top fabric feel think and durable. The mesh that closes up the pad when folded is also durable and great for throwing things inside. There is a decently wide gap at the bottom so its not a replacement for a backpack. I usually stuff the bulkier items first, a jacket or small bag (8-20L) and pile up everything else on top. also has a zippered pocket for keys and wallets.,,,,Highly recommended and great for solo missions.,,

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size and weight for all adventures whether roadside boulders or a long hike in to a secret spot this pad is perfect. The size is just right and the taco design gives you a better piece of mind when you pop off a project. It is small enough to take to any spot but big enough and tough enough to really protect your falls. Myself and friends have popped off high ball over hangs with stumpy landings and walked away fine. I would highly recommend this pad

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Pad Our rock climbing club recently purchased a few of these pads for members to use. The pad is great; sturdy enough to hold up on top of rocks and sticks, but soft enough to not hurt after a fall. The only thing that I would change about it is the taco design. I have never really liked it due to the awkwardness of fitting it into a car as opposed to a foldable pad. Other than that, I love this pad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is a good one. One of these has been catching my butt for years and is still like new(well, except for a few different types of stains, but that's on me). No tears anywhere. The foam has held up and is as stiff as ever.,,,,Con: the price has gone up like crazy over the past few years, but the don't seem to have made any improvements. Lame.
