Why Organic Pads?
- Organic climbing are the only pad manufacturer that use custom foam, it’s not off the shelf. Unlike every other pad manufacturer out there, Organic put foam in their pads that is specifically designed for you to fall on, however this foam won’t be new to you, it’s actually very similar to the foam you find in high end running shoes.
- And the outer fabric? We will let Josh (the man who makes your pad) from Organic climbing explain. “We use a true ballistic nylon for the outsides of our pads. The majority of “Ballistic nylons” used by many companies from messenger bags to pads are not real ballistics, they are imported fabric made to imitate the LOOK of a real ballistic weave but these will start to fray, or degrade much much faster. We still use the real stuff, and after 8 years using and abusing this stuff we will never change. We use heavy-duty industrial sewing machines so there is never compromise in our sewing work. I have a small batch of vintage machines sitting along side some more modern ones that were on a sewing line for parachutes in World War 2.”
- Still not Convinced? well how about this: “At ORGANIC Climbing nothing goes to waste. When we cut fabric to produce a product, we collect bins of all the scrap fabric. Then we take that and make smaller products, and then we take the scrap from that and use it as part of our design (e.g., a stripe or geometric art design on chalk bags, bags, crash pads, you name it). We keep going and going and going until we cannot anymore. We do that with all of the supplies used in our products.”
