The Mantle is our all-around folding pad. With a thickness of 4 inches and the sandwich construction utilizing two different foams, the Mantle offers optimal cushioning and absorption properties. The outer material is strong ballistic nylon making for a very robust and water-repellent shell. The two halves can be zipped together either on the long side (47 x 45 in.), or on the end (90.5 x 23.5 in.), which makes this pad ideal for traverses. Thanks to its modular design and hedonistic level of padding, the Mantle also doubles as a luxury camping mat or guest bed. The Mantle comes complete with foot mat, sturdy shoulder straps and indestructible aluminum buckles. Weight 11lb 11oz Also, includes the Sit Start Pad! The compact Sit Start is the perfect launch pad for difficult and awkward boulder starts or as additional support on a larger crash pad. The practical foot mat in the middle of the pad keeps your shoe soles dry and clean. The alternating open and closed-cell foam construction makes for comfortable fall cushioning. Due to its small size and light weight you can take the Sit Start everywhere.
Everyone sets routes with confidence with this bad boy underneath them. Although this thing is an absolute nightmare to transport in a small car, it is the ideal pad for maximizing your protection. I love it, my friends love it, and strangers down by the reservoir love it. Worth every penny.
