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 1000D 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.

UKC's Paul Phillips and Alan James test out the Project and Mujo; a great detailed review for anyone trying to decide between the two!
[The Project is] a great taco-style mat that gives good protection with a set of simple featuresAlan James
[The Mujo is] a quality mat that I don't think can be beaten with a price tag of £120.00Paul Phillips
A tenuous start to get established, a tiny pair of crimps and an awesome crux highstep / rockover / mantle move onto the hanging slab to the mono of glory and it's all over. Doesn't sound like much, but every move is brilliant. Bouldering: it's just brilliant!
