Waffa is a small crash pad for protection from up-close impacts. It’s ideal for protecting sit starts, ground traverses and covering over outlying rocks or strange landings.

  • Shock absorbent open cell foam, 4cm deep, for short low-level falls
  • Tough and super abrasion resistant 1100 denier Cordura® outer fabric
  • Fits inside the Project, Mujo and Origin for carrying on the walk-in

The Waffa's 80cm x 48cm landing space gives good coverage for your sit start and fits inside your full pad for the walk-in. It's also small and light enough to use as a bit of protection for your bony/fleshy parts when you're spotting your climbing partners.

Getting your butt off the floor can be the hardest part of a boulder problem. Waffa uses a layer of 4 cm open cell foam to absorb the impact of short sit-start falls. Our foam is also cross-linked, a fancy molecule-bonding process which makes it more shock absorbent and resistant to repeated compressions.

This foam lives in a super abrasion-resistant 1100D Cordura® outer cover with a DWR coating to help it endure the rocky nature of being a bouldering pad. All mat covers are sewn and reinforced with bar tack stitching in our UK Factory next door, and come with a 25-year Alpine Bond.

Martini, Pina Colada and Tequila Sunrise colours are built to order and are usually despatched within 3 weeks of purchase. If a colour is out of stock, contact our customer service team to book your place in the build queue.

Sustainability & 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.


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.
