    The famous Walmart blue PAD??

    I have searched several walmarts here in GA for the camping pad. I wanted to cut it up and make some wings sewn to a SPE. I can not find the pad anywhere. The only thing close is a heavy blue yoga pad!!
    Any suggestions ??

    Have you looked at Target, Kmart, or similar? Big 5? the local outfitters including REI also have the cheap blue foam pads.

    You can get a cheap pad if you live near an Army surplus store. OD green is better than the blue IMO.

    Look in the camping section where they have the sleeping bags. They sell 2 different styles/sizes. One is about 20 inches wide and has a semi smooth finish and the other is about 25 inches wide and has a waffle like pattern. Both run about $10. I know that the Walmart here does not have in stock all the time so if you do not see any ask one of the sales clerks.

    I got a pad at Kmart... it's kind of a light green but works about the same.
