/ First Bouldering Mat?
Go Outdoors have good BD mats very cheap at present. Personally I like my DMM HIgh Ball
Any bouldering mat will do, no need to pay more than £120.
Pretty much all do the same job apart from the thinner sized mats.
Just shop around online for the best deal
This pad will last for years so hunt around for a good one. Look for a taco style pad, and one that closes inwards towards the dirty side so as to keep your back clean. I'm not a fan of the black diamond ones, POD super crash pad or Moon warrior are both really good.
Your first pad should really be the one just before your second pad...
