The Metolius Launch Pad is a thin pad ideal for lashing two small pads together. It has a great velvety top that is comfy to hang out on and is great for cleaning shoes before you pull off the ground.
The Launch Pad can be part of a versatile pad system if you have two thin pads like the Metolius Stomp. It is a good value unless you want the absolute cheapest setup, which is to buy two Mad Rock Mad Pads and lash them together with cheap webbing. The Mad Pad has a convenient Velcro tab for connecting two pads and eliminating the chance your foot lands between the two pads. So it really comes down to how much you like your other thin pads and like the option of having an extra soft one-inch layer of foam like the Launch Pad. I used it for a season in Tahoe and loved it. Today I would carry a medium pad and a huge pad. But if you are on budget or space constraints, the Launch Pad is a great way to build a versatile pad carrying system.
