As our lightest full pad with a square metre landing space, Phud can be found dashing round an evening circuit or working alongside a bigger pad when things get serious.

  • A removable shoulder strap makes Phud easy to carry in on the approach
  • Equal layers of closed and open cell foam prevent bottoming out
  • Grab handles on the side make for easy maneuverability when spotting

Phud’s simple carry system, with a single removable shoulder strap, makes it super versatile and portable. Throw it over your shoulder as you move from boulder to boulder or hang it on your main pad for the walk-in.

A taco-style fold - with the firmer, landing side on the outside - gives a single uninterrupted landing zone with no creases. It uses two layers of foam: 4 cm open cell to absorb impact of your fall, and 4cm closed cell to spread your weight across the pad so you don’t bottom out (compress your pad all the way to the ground). This foam lives in a tough 1100 denier Cordura® shell with a DWR coating, sewn and bar-tacked in our UK factory to endure the tough life of a bouldering pad.

Side grab handles make it easy for your spotter to shift the pad as you climb. When it comes to packing away, strong and secure aluminium tension hooks help you close cinch in the pad.

We fall off things a lot, so we make crash pads that can take a lot of falls. Our foam is crosslinked – a process which bonds molecules in the foam that would not usually link together to make it much stronger and reduce break down from repeated compressions. This makes our foam more shock absorbent and durable than other foams on the market.

Sustainability and Product Care

Product Care Information

Looking After Your Foam
Always store your pad flat to prolong the life of your foam and ensure it continues to lie flat when you're using it. All our foam is protected by a 3 year Alpine Bond. If you do want to replace your foam, you can buy new foam directly from us.

Cleaning Your Mat
To clean your bouldering pad, brush off excess dirt, wipe down with a damp sponge then leave to dry. Our bouldering mat covers are made to endure and are protected by a 25 year Alpine Bond.

Repairs
We have dedicated Repair Stations in our stores and we're fully equipped to breathe new life into your old kit. This includes spare parts, patches, new zips and wash and reproofing of your down and waterproofs. Pop into any store or contact us online for more info.

How It Is Made

Reducing Fabric Wastage
Our bouldering mat panels are cut to keep fabric waste to the absolute minimum. We also recycle as much scrap fabric as we can into brand new products.

Where It Is Made
Our products are made in the best factories in the world. We know the factories personally and they have all signed up to our Code of Ethics in our supply chain. This includes the Ethical Trading Initiative base code, fair pay, safe working environments, no child labour, no modern slavery, no bribery or corruption, no materials from conflict zones and humane farming methods.

All our factories sign up to our Code of Conduct. Find out where we make our product by visiting our Factories of Alpkit factory zone.

Reducing our carbon footprint
We are carbon neutral under PAS2060 and offset our Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 operations and transport emissions. We recognise that offsetting is not part of the solution but a point to pass through on a journey to Net Zero. Carbon Neutral is just a step in that journey.

We have joined the Science Based Targets Initiative which sets independent targets for us to achieve to do our bit to limit global warming to 1.5°C. Our targets are to halve our Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 2025 based on 2018 base year and reduce our total carbon intesnity by 15% every year to achieve genuine net zero by 2050.

End of life
When your partnership with this product is over send it back to us and we will pass it on to someone that needs it through our Continuum Project.
