Alot of manufacturers make sweet pads. Both the Metolius and cordless pads caught my eye. I ended up with the Cordless large pad. It folds like a taco. The advantage to this is it becomes a backpack complete with shoulder straps and a hip belt. It also drapes over rocks nicely, has a velcro pocket for small stuff and metal clasps for packing it up. Metolius' foam is a bit firmer and their pads are hinged. Because of this they don't drape well over rocks, around trees, etc... A partner of mine has a Metolius pad, so I use both. Both are great pads. Check out this article from Rock and Ice. http://rockandice.com/index.phtml?section=gear_show&content_id=76

I have a FUSE pad. I love it to death.
