Mujo bouldering mat
The default choice for unyielding boulderers with a build quality to make even the most frequent flyers happy. An innovative package with everyday portability.
Mujo is a bouldering mat for climbers who run a punishing schedule devouring problems on grit, limestone, granite or sandstone day in day out throughout the year.
If you boulder this frequently you need to have confidence in the foam at the heart of your pad. Mujo has proven itself on this front time and time again hitting that sweet balance point between durability and cushioning, in short we have tuned it for performance.
Bouldering is abrasive, both on your skin and on your mat. We have climbers in our factory and they know all too well what damage can be done to a shell fabric that is unfit for purpose. For a high usage mat such as this they will tell you straight up they wouldn’t consider using anything less than genuine 1100D Cordura, and that’s precisely what we use.
Whether meeting up with friends at the local boulder hotspot or on a solo quest to find that mythical virgin boulder you can name as your own, you can have confidence that Mujo will be up to the task.

This full size hinged bouldering mat features an innovative, new, elasticated closure system which also holds the mat open when on the ground. The 1000 den Cordura shell ensures it stands up to the knocks and scrapes of use and a reinforced webbing loop allows a rucksack to be clipped in and sandwiched inside the pad. Quick to open and close, the elastic allows the pad to expand when carrying kit inside to the boulders without leaving any impressions on the foam. The strap can be used as a shoulder or rucksack strap or completely removed. THE BEST FOAM: based on some in-depth research, listening to what our customers have to say, and reinforced by our own climbing team’s feedback we have changed the proportions and densities of the foam of our pads since our original Phud and Woomf. They now give a sweeter, softer-feeling landing surface that is more capable of handling landings from differing heights. The close density match of the layers also combines to increase the long term durability of the foam and reduces the fade noticed after heavy long term use on many pads. We have known our foam suppliers for many years and have listened to their advice and knowledge to maximise the performance and value of the foam we buy and we are confident this as good as it gets. The only corners we have cut on Mujo are the ones on the pad itself. The rounded corners make the pads more difficult to make but they reduce wear points which is good long term. Made here in the UK in our own workshop we are in total control of every element, from the fabric to the seams to the thread holding it together. The shell is a burly 1000 den Cordura, not some far eastern copy spelt slightly differently, this is the real deal. By buying this pad you are funding a bunch of climbers to go and do what they love to do… climb. Closed cell foam density: 25 kg/m3 Open cell foam density: 30kg/m3

I love this pad, its far better that the black diamond and metalious pads my friends have. It was also cheaper, better quality and has a larger landing area. You would be daft to go for anything else. However due to the size it doesn't fit in my boot of my car but that my fault becuase I have a Vauxhall Corsa
It's a good pad for the price! I have my mujo for almost 3years and still rocks as new, durable and very good quality foam!
Best bouldering pad on the market!
I'm a massive fan of this pad! Bought one for my mountaineering club about a year ago and its been a go to pad for the club ever since (usually chosen over our other Black Diamond, Metolius, and DMM Pads). Contrary to what others have written, myself and others in the club have really gotten on well with the closing system of the pad as it helps hold the pad open on dodgy landings. The closing system also holds the pad shut without needing to do up the clips when moving between boulders. When the clips are done up, the pad hold firmly shut and I've found it sufficient to accommodate shoes chalk and a down. This is by far my favourite bouldering pad that I have used!
Terrible Closure System
The overall construction on the mat and the foam is great. The downside of this mat are that there are some sewing errors that I have seen on several peoples mats and the closure system is by far the worst out there. It is impossible to put anything inside the mat (such as shoes, chalk, jacket) without is falling out the bottom. I have personally modified my mat to make it more like the closure system on the Alpkit Project mat which is great and seem many people who have taken off the elastic cord and replaced it with velcro straps or regular bouldering mat straps. I would highly recommend the Alpkit Phud and Project mats, but unfortunately due to the closure system on this mat it is a no go.
