duct tape never occurred to you?

bouldering sucks though, better option would be to just rope up.

says everyone whos not strong enough to boulder...

anyways, get an organic pad...the straps are long enough to pretty much wrap around a whole other pad and still clasp the loops on your organic. They make them longer Im sure for that very reason.

Duct tape is a bad suggestion. Just curious why you felt the need to comment on this? You have added nothing other than the fact that you feel you a superior because you climb with a rope.

Organic is a bit overpriced and imports their materials, so I'm not too sure why they're so hyped. I do love the customization and they put out fine products but I don't think they're worth the dough.

Idk know a good way but this may work

Get a couple of ratchet straps and lay the pads out flat upside down.

Run the straps underneath (the side of the pad you land on should face downward) the pad and tighten until snug

Flip the pads over, so landing is facing up and the metal ratchets are underneath the pads, and crush whatever you need that 20 ft landing zone for :P

I was invisioning strapping just two together but 4(2x2) would easily work as well just get 4 ratchet straps and do 2 width wise and 2 length wise. Good 2 GO!

Keenan - did duct taping your mouth never occur to you?

Thx guys for the tips, maybe it's a bit obvious but was interested in how others solved this problem. Off to the hardware store with me!

Are you strapping them together to transport or to protect a landing? JJNS

I know a lot of people don't like mad rock pads, but they all come with velcro straps that you can attach to other pads. Works really well in what you want to do. I heard Organic does this now, you just have to ask them to customize it for you...as in add the velcro straps. Jan Tarculas

Sorry but you are a dick... What else needs to be said? Duct tape is about the dumbest suggestion you coudl come up with so I hope that was on purpose...

You are also young and dont know what you are talking about. And you are pretty skinny and have a really weird shaped face so I wouldnt be giving anyone shit.

Also your name is Keenan... hahahah why did your parents think that would be a good name? And where is your buddy kel!!???

I'm 6 foot 6 and weigh 200 pounds, not that I'm looking for a fight, but come at me bro.

The questions of late have degenerated into gumbydom, how the hell would you strap two pads together? a strap? some duct tape? who knows! who fucking cares! If you absolutely must do it I'm sure you can figure it out without 25 responses from people telling you the same thing. I'm a dick but it doesn't mean what I'm saying isn't true.

I didn't lie about my name. Where does it say your username MUST be your real name? You have the reasoning skills of a second grader.... Good job Sallie.

Also what is with unnecessary colon above? Do you have the grammar skills of a second grader?

In today's episode, Keenan comes back from the dead and reminds us that he's still incapable of contributing anything valuable to the discussion. And, the episode ends with a well earned bitch slap.

btw...6'6", 200...that's a bean pole description and like 50 lbs short of intimidating.

Two idiots fighting over pointless shit. Spot on!

Anyway, on topic. I was thinking about that earlier today, actually. I was thinking about making it easier to transport pads by strapping them together, but I hadn't thought about combining pads for ease pf protection.

I like the straps idea, as they could be wrenched together pretty securely. I mean, this is really just going to come down ti trial and error... whatever you can get your hands on.

For the record, I have spotted 3 grammatical errors in your post about grammatical errors. Can you find them? ;D
