/ bouldering mat
Alpkit is the cheapest pad for value on the market - the wingman is not really a pad but a mat.
Alpkit for value
Moon for quality is the general concensus (I mean general some will disagree - and new pads are out all the time)
Decathlon have a Simond pad out give that a look
The new Alpkit pads are very good and without a doubt the best pads you can get if you're on a budget!
The newer Alpkit one look great but I think I'm going to get a DMM highball next as they are indestructible and probably the best I've used.
I've got an alpkit phud and it's done me proud. I also picked up a nice large one from the for sale forum here, definitely worth keeping an eye on. They come up on ebay on occasion too.
You should be able to get something for around £100 I'd imagine, don't skimp though, especially if you're just starting.
