I inherited a pad-backpack but the previous owner took out the foam and only left a thin sheet of closed cell. Where can I order 2-3 inch thick open cell foam, preferably cut to size? Alternatively, what are the sources for 1" open cell and 0.5" closed cell (I'll make a 3-layer sandwich then)?

you can order custom sheets and they have recommendations for firmness for diy bouldering pads.

Since this one is going to be thinner (3" at most), I probably want it stiff but it looks like they got it all.

They recommend (and I recently bought) the 2.2lb Lux HQ open cell foam.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
