Best of the "budget pads"
Review by: keinangst, 2009-01-20
After 4 years with the Mad Pad, I was ready for something newer and stiffer. Although the Stomp is technically an inch thinner overall, it actually has a half-inch more closed-cell foam than the Mad Pad (very few pads have more than the one basic inch of closed-cell). Bonus: It's much lighter, has Metolius' classic angled hinge, and a few more straps on it. Although it doesn't have pockets or any of the fancy bits found on more pricey pads, this thing is about as good as it gets at this price point. Highly recommended.
