Black Diamond Impact Crash Pad -

The Black Diamond Impact Crash Pad is excellent whether you're a beginner getting your first pad or you're stocking up for some intense highballer you've been eying for a long time. Its polyester ripstop exterior is durable and can handle sliding down rocky crevasses without a tear, and Black Diamond added a PU coating for extra durability and water-resistant protection. Inside the pad, you get one layer of closed-cell PE foam that dissipates the force of your fall, and another layer of high-compression PU foam that keeps the pad sturdy and ready to catch you for many years.

The Impact also features shoulder straps and a waist belt to help you get to your problem with ease, and two handles help your buddies move the pad underneath you while you climb. Its hinge-style fold makes moving from boulder to boulder simple and quick, and the three-strap closure secures the folded pad in place so you can get from the car to the mountains without a hassle.

  • Removable, padded shoulder straps and hip belt


  • Clean, three-strap closure with easy hooking metal buckles - no pockets or flaps

Built with a redesigned, premium multi-density foam layup and ready for everything from entry-level use to daily training circuits, the Black Diamond Impact Crash Pad is a simple and durable hinge-fold pad. The clean, three-strap closure system and streamlined suspension system make for easy transport, while the two side grab handles allow for quick pad shuffles when spotting.

Back to basics, the Black Diamond Impact bouldering pad has all of the cushioning of regular pads and less of the price tag.
Straightforward padding for boulderers on a budget, the Impact provides the same dimensions and cushioning of the Drop Zone without the pocket or flaps. If you don’t have much to carry, the Impact offers a lot of value with two and a half inches (64 mm) of cushy open-cell foam and one inch (25 mm) of force-dissipating closed-cell foam. Using a taco design, the Impact is a snap to fold up and carry with its minimalist design, stainless steel buckles, removable, padded shoulder straps and hip belt. Top 25 Category Product

Black Diamond Impact Crash Pad

My buddy had has one of these and it works great. So I decided to buy one for myself. I fell a few times from about 4ft onto my butt, no problem when you land on it. Also ditched a problem dropped about 8ft onto my feet. The pad has two layers of padding, one hard, and one soft. It gives a nice balance betweem firmness and softness so you dont bust an ankle. It weighs roughly 9 pounds and has a pretty good surface area. Im a little concerened about the shoulder straps stiching after crashing alot on it but I think it'll be ok. The Impact is a great deal, it costs much less than other pads and works just as good.

I have this pad for awhile now, and it does the job. I have used it alot and it takes everything I have thrown at it.Its been soaked in rain and mud, I washed it with a hose and put in the sun for half a day and it looks brand new! My friends and I have taken big falls on this pad, and have come out safe and sound. I gave this 4 stars just cause its a smaller pad and I believe its not for beginners who don't have the exp. to spot their landing. I like this pad and will beat and abuse it, if it fails in anyway I will write a new review and let you guys know.

Great pad

Good thick pad, easy to carry, very portable straps are comfortable on back. Best part is that there is no visible break(valley or seam)between the pad when you open it up giving you a larger surface area to "crash on". I looked at other pads that literally had two halfs with a seam in the middle or had an extra sheet that went across the top to cover the seam which I think would be cumbersome to carry and worthless at padding your fall.

Great smaller pad!!

I have had this pad for a while now and have been bouldering on it constinly. Even though this bad is smaller it still profomes. The foam can withstand anything and it is easy to travel with. Wether you use this pad for everyday climbing or just to bring when you travel you will be impressed.

Great pad

Great pad. Light weight, shoulder straps make it easy for the hike. Padding is firm, but not at all uncomfortable.
