Any feedback on a Vertigo crash pad? I found it for $95 on the web (description below). I am a little weary of buying a crash pad over the web because I would like to see how sturdy it is.

What would you boulderers recommend to a woman with little cash? all suggestions appreciated!
Vertigo crash pad:
LARGE SIZE: in open position: 36" x 48" x 3"
1" closed-cell foam top layer (spreads force)
2" open-cell foam bottom layer (shock absorber)
45 hinge at middle point
side carry handle
backpack straps
T-6 aluminum bucklesi

Do a forum seach - I've been looking at this pad myself and browsed through the forums here to get some info, seems like most of the comments I saw about them were positive.

Has anyone seen the Cassin crash pad, it looks a lot like the Franklin drop zone, but how is the foam? They are $99 on climbaxe.com and i was looking into getting one.
Thanks
