Rated 5 out of 5 by kateRutherford from makes me feel safe I didn't like to boulder before I got a Mondo. I hate falling and want to preserve my body for big routes in the Alpine, the Mondo makes me feel safe when I am up high, and it's great training for the mountains to carry it around :) I don't boulder with out it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ad rock from Been using mondos for 10 years Alot of pad snobs say the workmanship has gone backwards and the pad is inferior to competitors. It's still getting high usage from me. I use 2 my 2 mondos for any serious project I am working on, and they need to be doubled up when getting 5m above the deck. That's the nature of bouldering, I'm sure in the future pad technology will continue to improve, but for now I would'nt consider it a serious session if I didn't have my mondos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rayden8 from Great size, durability, and packability This is the best option for something durable and big that carries well on the back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mavrey from Good but could be better I really like it but they cut the corners a bit short on functionality and details. ie: they could have added a little metal loop so we could tie a packpack or another pad to it, i had a shoemaker add a strap and loop on the top of it to be able to clip and carry another pad, which made it perfect.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Frankstone from Poor longevity, save your money Purchased a few seasons back. Over a few seasons has developed pretty drastic damage to back surface and the foam has lost a lot of its structure. Contacted BD about trying to replace the foam and the only offer was a discount on a new one. Glad to see black diamond employing such sustainable practices and really standing behind the quality of their equipment. Pros: it's large. Cons: straps are uncomfortable, material quality is poor, when it craps out in 2 years you'll be pitching 25 pounds of foam and nylon in the trash.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dude from Great and all but, tears easily It's great; big, thick, good handles, etc. But since it tore two inches in the bottom on the first use, I do want to tell Black Diamond to make the bottom in a material that is stronger. It doesn't matter if the material is waterproof if there's a whole in it. As it is, I need to repair it. And therefore I seek information from Black Diamond's web site but have still not found any. In the future, I'll just have to avoid sharp rocks. Now, I'm just looking for some good support and to get back to bouldering with my pad! As I'm now more interested in my friends getting another pad to see if more durable, I'll recommend another one than this one. Otherwise, I wouldn't.

Rated 3 out of 5 by rliang from Ehh The good: *Fits perfectly in the trunk (44") of SUVs w/ raised wheel wells *Longer, like a strip, good for traverses and problems that don't move straight up. *Stiff and holding structural integrity *Water resistant fabric The Bad: *Buckles SUCK. Very hard to adjust and slide, almost impossible to remove w/o trimming the webbing that holds it in place. *Shoulder straps are not adjustable, in terms of height. *Shoulder straps are not padded. Pad is 20.6lbs, can easily add 10lbs+ of extra gear inside, making total carrying weight 30lbs+ Much to be desired, at price point, when compared to competitors
