An uninterrupted slab of three and a half inches (89 mm) of high-quality foam, the Drop Zone Pad by Black Diamond has a large carrying capacity. Built with two and a half inches (64 mm) of open-cell foam for energy absorption and one inch (25 mm) of closed-cell foam for force dissipation, its taco design and bottom and side flaps (with stainless steel buckles) let you stuff it full of gear. An accessory pocket on the side flap secures your small essentials. The removable, padded shoulder straps and hip belt (mounted high on the pad for clearance in tight spots) provide a comfortable carry.
Black Diamond designed its Drop Zone Crash Pad to go anywhere every day of the week. This mid-sized pad has an extremely durable nylon exterior that prevents tearing from tree branches and scuffing from the rocky ground. Black Diamond added a PU coating to the top for water-resistance and protection from abrasion, and an EPO treatment gives the bottom waterproof protection that also prevents the pad from slipping underneath your feet when you land. The pad's interior has a layer of closed-cell PE foam that dissipates the force of your fall, and another layer of high-compression PU foam keeps the pad sturdy and ready to catch you for many years.
The Drop Zone also features shoulder straps and a waist belt to help you get to your projects with ease, and two handles help your buddies move the pad underneath you while you climb. Its taco-style fold eliminates any dead spaces in order to prevent your ankles from rolling when you land, and the quick-closure elastic mesh flap lets you load the pad up (once it's folded) with your chalk bag, shoes, and maybe some drinks to celebrate your sending successes.
