Earth Bones Climbing pads are premium-quality bouldering crashpads individually handcrafted in Nova Scotia, Canada.

  Our pads are built for toughness. Each taco-style pad features a lower surface constructed from 1050-Denier Cordura ballistics nylon, and a 1000-Denier Cordura nylon landing surface. Inside, you’ll find a robust core of cross-link polyethylene closed-cell foam, sandwiched between three layers of 105-pound compression open-cell foam.

   All of our products feature military-grade hardware and heat-sealed inner seams for maximum durability. Our pads feature a wrap-around flap of tough, high-contrast 1000D Cordura nylon. When you carry your pad, this flap helps to keep your gear securely inside, and increases your visibility. When the pad is in use, the flap provides a clean, dry place to spot, and to clean debris from your shoes (we’ve included a removable patch for this purpose). Folded underneath, the flap protects your shoulder straps and waist belt from dirt and abrasion.

    Our pad’s carrying system features four points of adjustability. Whatever your height, you’ll be able to adjust your pad for comfortable carrying in a matter of minutes.

   Earth Bones Climbing pads were designed and developed by an experienced industrial textile designer, and are individually hand cut and sewn in Nova Scotia, Canada.

     At Earth Bones Climbing, our mission is to provide Canadian-made premium-grade bouldering pads at competitive prices. Through our Kickstarter project, we hope to raise enough money to build the material inventory we need to continue building top quality bouldering pads and accessories.

Risks and challenges

Earth Bones Climbing is prepared to hit the ground running, with our production facility already set up to manufacture pads. As our Kickstarter is running, we will be maintaining normal operations, cutting, manufacturing and maintaining a stock of certain universal elements of our pads and chalk bags, including flaps, straps and pad bottoms. This maximizes the time that can be spent on the unique features of each item as the final surveys are received. In selecting our fulfillment dates, we have allowed what we estimate to be ample time to produce the quantities to which we have limited our rewards.
