Waffa is a small crash pad for protection from up-close impacts. It’s ideal for protecting sit starts, ground traverses and covering over outlying rocks or strange landings.

  • Shock absorbent open cell foam, 4cm deep, for short low-level falls
  • Tough and super abrasion resistant 1100 denier Cordura® outer fabric
  • Fits inside the Project, Mujo and Origin for carrying on the walk-in

The Waffa's 80cm x 48cm landing space gives good coverage for your sit start and fits inside your full pad for the walk-in. It's also small and light enough to use as a bit of protection for your bony/fleshy parts when you're spotting your climbing partners.

Getting your butt off the floor can be the hardest part of a boulder problem. Waffa uses a layer of 4 cm open cell foam to absorb the impact of short sit-start falls. Our foam is also cross-linked, a fancy molecule-bonding process which makes it more shock absorbent and resistant to repeated compressions.

This foam lives in a super abrasion-resistant 1100D Cordura® outer cover with a DWR coating to help it endure the rocky nature of being a bouldering pad. All mat covers are sewn and reinforced with bar tack stitching in our UK Factory next door, and come with a 25-year Alpine Bond.

Product Care Information

Looking After Your Foam
Always store your pad flat to prolong the life of your foam and ensure it continues to lie flat when you're using it. All our foam is protected by a 3 year Alpine Bond. If you do want to replace your foam, you can buy new foam directly from us.

Cleaning Your Mat
To clean your bouldering pad, brush off excess dirt, wipe down with a damp sponge then leave to dry. Our bouldering mat covers are made to endure and are protected by a 25 year Alpine Bond.

We have dedicated Repair Stations in our stores and we're fully equipped to breathe new life into your old kit. This includes spare parts, patches, new zips and wash and reproofing of your down and waterproofs. Pop into any store or contact us online for more info.

How It Is Made

Reducing Fabric Wastage
Our bouldering mat panels are cut to keep fabric waste to the absolute minimum. We also recycle as much scrap fabric as we can into brand new products.

Where It Is Made
Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.

All our factories sign up to our Code of Conduct. Find out where we make our product by visiting our Factories of Alpkit factory zone.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.

End of life
When your partnership with this product is over send it back to us and we will pass it on to someone that needs it through our Continuum Project.
