SNAP - Bun Bouldering Mat
This is the new and much better looking version of a classic bouldering mat.
A "taco style" pad, meaning it bends in half rather than folds. As a result there is no fold to lose you ankle into.
The bottom of the pad is textured to stop it slipping on sloping terrain. When folded the bottom becomes the inside so there is no muddy bottom against your back or ruining the car seats. The rucksack straps are removable however so you still have a clean landing surface.
- Ripstop cover is washable
- Carpet logo patch for cleaning shoes
- 2 Handles
- Velcro closure tabs for less clutter
- 2 layers of foam: 2cm closed cell top sheet and 10cm open cell bottom sheet
- Open size: 100cm x 135cm x 12cm
- Closed size: 100cm x 60cm x 35cm
- Weight 5.5kg
Despite photos, the current models are coming with a red pad and a black outer.

Excellent mat, easy to carry with the straps and good size too.
Bought one of these from Dicks last year ( review below ) . Decided it was time to get hold of a second mat and the fact i decided to buy the same mat from the same place probably says it all . After a years use the first mat has no defects and has done it's job perfectly only differnce with the new mat is it's black and red . Service was excellent again ordered and arrive 24 hrs later with a couple of email updates in between . If she ever gets round to it the review above this one should be from my sister as she's just bought herself one =) .
Good mat, have now used it on a couple of trips. The muddy underside folds away into the middle (and does not smear mud and crap on your back when you carry it.... which is not always the case!?). I have a version in bright yellow and orange which is shows mud a little bit. But I do like those colours: nice and obnoxious. Speedy communication from Dick and Pete about shipment, and also speedy shipment. Unfortunately the mat has no ideas how to solve global warming, nor will it make you a coffee.
I purchased a bouldering mat from dick , initially i messaged him to ask about delivery timings which he replied to very quickly . I then recieved an email to tell me my order had been received and was being made ready to ship . I then received another email from pete assuring me the mat had been stored open as is preferable with taco matts and that it was on my way to me . The mat arrived bang on schedule the next working day after payment and was well packaged and all that malarky . Short version of this review great service , very friendly and pretty much the cheapest price to boot i'll be checking dicks climbing from now on for every purchase i make .
paid for itself after one fall
Fantastic bouldering pad with masses of foam protection and a really tough covering. Used it in anger at Fairhead these past two weekends where the heavy duty covering really got put to the test. Having jammed it between rocks and boulders it has created a great landing zone. I need a second pad to safely attempt other problems at Fairhead and I think I'll just go for another one of these............it's that good. On several occasions other people I bumped into commented on how good a quality the Snap pads are. Cool!
I looked long and hard for the right crash pad as it's not a cheap purchase so I wanted to get it right. This pad is awesome, it is very robust and put together very well with tough materials so I'm sure it will last a long time. Once folded it has straps so you can carry it has on your back which is handy when trekking through the woods to find the next problem. The foam itself is very sturdy and although I have yet to fall on it (fingers crossed I don't have to) I have jumped down from heights to dismount and am more than happy with it's performance. Dicks Climbing shop did a great job on the shipping, it arrived very quickly and neatly packaged
