Bouldering mats discussion 9-Jun-2006 At 10:23:18 AM sticky
Hey Ti

My two bob: - As for the inflation - it really depends on whether the hassle of the inflation process outweighs the hassle of lugging a hefty bouldering mat. How long does it take to inflate? Do you need any more equipment? What is the cost differential? What maintenance is required? How easy is it to repair?

Mats weigh a lot, and they're hard to fit into small cars; they're not even that comfortable to sleep on in a tent. So there is a market for your product.

Aside from the (potential) hassle of inflation, the next thing to work on is convincing people that it is robust enough to do the job. Reality and perception are different things, and it may prove a struggle convincing people that they can bail or fall from a highball onto a glorified thermarest, even if it is actually better than any bouldering mat they can buy.
