New Metolius Crash Pad Couch

New from Metolius, the Crash Pad Couch will turn your bouldering mat into an outdoor sofa!

We’re big fans of outdoor gear, but this doesn’t mean that we believe more if better. On the contrary, we aim to practice minimalism wherever possible. For us, the best gear is that which is multipurpose.

That’s why this new Crash Pad Couch from Metolius caught our eye. Planning a weekend away bouldering but have limited space in the van? This simple but effective collapsible plywood frame will transform your bouldering mat into a comfy sofa in a jiffy.

The sturdy wooden plywood frame packs flat and quickly slots together, easy assembly with no tools needed. This means you can leave the camp chairs behind and free up space in the minivan for another cooler full of beers…

The design is pretty simple. Feeling creative and you could probably knock one up yourself in an afternoon with $30 worth of plywood from the local hardware store. Providing you’ve got the tools and skills that is.

Or just save the time and hassle and risk of losing a finger (which would really spoil that weekend away bouldering) by buying this ready made version for a pretty reasonable €119.
