I found this on Alpkit's website.
New Bouldering Mat (To Replace the Classic Phud)
All Colours and Sizes
We are setting up our UK factory to make the best mats around. We are hoping production will start in early January with the first one being ready by the end of January
Quick question regarding the current mats...
Is it hard to get the foam back in once taken out? Mine was reversed over by a land rover and the shoulder strap broke and needs sewing. Would just be easier if I took it out but I'm worried I wont get it back in.
Sorry for jumping in this tread but it's sort of relevant...
think i read somewhere that taking foam out invalidates the warranty - best to check with alpkit first.
anyone know how much the new ones are going to be and whether there's going to be a similar deal to the old one of phud + woomf for £120?

No, it's really easy. I've done it a few times when the outer cover has needed cleaning after a particularly muddy session. One of the inner layers has a very thin plastic sheath over it which acts as a slip-membrane against the other piece of foam.

That really doesn't sound right. Must be an urban myth! Why would they have the velcro closure ends if they weren't supposed to be used?
it was in the old phud description on their site which included:
"Open the velcro and let the mat air to dry. Be careful if you do remove the foam as we do not cover this as a warranty claim."
don't know if it's daft as i haven't got one, i'm just the messenger...
That's interesting but it does sound a bit odd as removal and reinsertion isn't a problem. Okay, it's a slight footer, but I've done it several times without damaging the foam.
