The eco-conscious pad for complicated landings.
The baffles of the new R3 contain recycled EVA foam that would normally be collected and shipped for disposal. With the lower costs of manufacturing the R3, we were able to provide a 1680 denier shell that is the most durable in the industry. The ground shield unfolds to protect the R3's suspension system from dirt and moisture.

Review from Climbing.com
“When I needed this pad, I needed this pad,” said one tester who used it for a month in Hueco Tanks, Texas. “The separated tubes of foam wrapped around those hard-to-protect obstacles that tend to be right in the middle of your landing zone, so my ankles (and ass) were protected when I fell.” Although this pad is hefty at 18 lbs., it covers 55” x 35” x 4” (about half a foot longer than other mid-sized pads), and the weight came in handy when protecting angled landings: “It stayed in place without sliding off like smaller pads.” Plus, the weight carries well with the fully padded shoulder straps and waistbelt. The kicker of the R3 is the baffled construction: It’s filled with chunks of inexpensive, recycled EVA foam, instead of the normal costly sheets of open and closed-cell foam. (R3 stands for reduce, reuse, recycle.) This saves on manufacturing costs, so the designers were able to cover the pad with burly 1680-denier polyester while still passing along savings to us dirtbags.Bonus: “I slept on this pad every night in Hueco, and it was as comfortable as my bed at home!”
