I've been bouldering indoors for a year now and would like to move outdoors this summer. Time to buy a mat me thinks!
But I'm having trouble choosing the right one for me. First of all I should say that I'm British but climbing in Japan. The choice here is pretty limited and the only way to buy is to order from my local climbing centre (I can't try before I buy! And I can't order from Bananafingers etc. because of the weight and size). With what pads are available to me I've narrowed it down to three pads. Please give me your thoughts.
Moon Warrior. PRO, very popular mat, cheapest. CON, I heard they have gone downhill a bit.
Snap Bun. PRO, thickest (very big pro for a noob) CON. Shoulder straps don't look comfy
Flashed Ninja. PRO, lightest, good shoulder straps. CON, expensive, fold is on the wrong side.
What are your thoughts?
I'm leaning towards the Snap at the moment due to the thickness.
Thank you in advance.
They're new and small enough such that they may be able to meet your design requirments (custom designs anyone?) they have tits-killer good foam and can no doubt sort you out with semi decent shipping prices if required?
Google them, they're foam is assuredly the best, customer service is beyond reproach and that customisable aspect really seals the deal.
