As our lightest full pad with a square metre landing space, Phud can be found dashing round an evening circuit or working alongside a bigger pad when things get serious.

  • A removable shoulder strap makes Phud easy to carry in on the approach
  • Equal layers of closed and open cell foam prevent bottoming out
  • Grab handles on the side make for easy maneuverability when spotting

Phud’s simple carry system, with a single removable shoulder strap, makes it super versatile and portable. Throw it over your shoulder as you move from boulder to boulder or hang it on your main pad for the walk-in.

A taco-style fold - with the firmer, landing side on the outside - gives a single uninterrupted landing zone with no creases. It uses two layers of foam: 4 cm open cell to absorb impact of your fall, and 4cm closed cell to spread your weight across the pad so you don’t bottom out (compress your pad all the way to the ground). This foam lives in a tough 1100 denier Cordura® shell with a DWR coating, sewn and bar-tacked in our UK factory to endure the tough life of a bouldering pad.

Side grab handles make it easy for your spotter to shift the pad as you climb. When it comes to packing away, strong and secure aluminium tension hooks help you close cinch in the pad.


We fall off things a lot, so we make crash pads that can take a lot of falls. Our foam is crosslinked – a process which bonds molecules in the foam that would not usually link together to make it much stronger and reduce break down from repeated compressions. This makes our foam more shock absorbent and durable than other foams on the market.

Care & Environmental Advice

Product Care Information

Always store your pad flat so that it continues to lie flat when you’re using it and to prolong the life of your foam. To clean your bouldering pad, brush off excess dirt, wipe down with a damp sponge then leave to dry. Our bouldering pads are made to endure. All our foam is protected by a 3 year Alpine bond, all bouldering pad ‘shells’ are protected by a 25 year Alpine bond. If you do want to replace your foam, you can buy new foam directly from us.
