/ starting out bouldering pads?
Small mats are ok if that's all you can fit in your car or as an addition to a big mat but you wouldn't choose one as your first and only mat without good reason. Phud is quite a small mat.
Has the Phud got smaller than it used to be then? Mine is fairly big (won't fit in the boot of a Pug 206). Then again, I do most of my bouldering at the moment with a Woomf, which really is quite small.
1m x 1m according to the website. Mine is very similar to that (withoug going to measure it) but they no longer make it. I think mine is a Phud, it was the smaller Alpkit offering and fits a Z3/MX5 boot.
I think the old ones used to be more like 1.3 x 1.0m (I had a MK. 1 version and it was pretty decent for a first mat.) The 'Woomf' was the smaller, taco style one, also no longer produced.

It has got smaller then - mine is more than a metre square. The Woomf is the smallest mat Alpkit did - I think it is about 100x75 cm.
Sorry for the wait.
A friend has one which i have used on occasion. it seemed to be be a good pad and did everything i wanted. my friend seems pretty happy with it as well.
Perhaps they've changed the foam they where using.
