I know a guy who manufactures boulder pads in Pretoria. His pads are the same size as the Black Diamond Mondo, but 2cm thicker and his foam is better that the stuff BD puts in. The shell material is the strongest stuff I've ever seen on a pad. He's offering a lifetime stitch cover. You can even get your own custom decal on it for free.
They're going for R1900. The Mondo is going for R3400 on MMO I think. I bought one myself and I love it. Some people say its a bit big, but thats what I like about it.
Go to www.explo.co.za
and check out the news and gallery section for some other info. His company is Llama Pads.
He's taking a couple of pads down to CT soon for the Roc n Road trip, so he can bring you one.
Call him directly on 0724371241. His name is Frits Pistorius
