    Eva Foam at BigLots

    I found this today at BigLots while just looking around. I'm not sure if it's been mentioned before, but I couldn't locate. It's a roll 46"x 93" of Anti Fatigue eva foam. It's 1/4" thick and $18. I don't need, but I thought I'd just throw that out there for others who may Pictures are taken from crappy cell phone.

    Worth checking out! I may need to take a trip to town tomorrow. I made a DL hammock and that would work well. Thanks.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    Been thinking about this myself bit. We have a "hammock barn" and it would be nice to not have to drag our good UQs back and forth and just save the UQ for camping outside. Would certainly work for two nice wide torso pads.

    I use pieces of it for padding on my spreader pole to protect my tarp. Little circles and some shock cord is all it took.

    I had just thought about this today as well. I don't lnow why it didn't come to me sooner as I use these sort of pads to create foam armor for cosplaying and those suits are very warm. I plan on picking one up this weekend as I don't have any spare left from my last project. I'm wondering how it compares to a Gossamer Gear thinlight pads.

    I'm not sure of the weight, but I can tell you that the entire roll was surprisingly very light weight. I could have twirled on my finger if I wanted to

    I like it, how much is a roll?

    I know it doesn't weight much an entire IronMan suit is only about 10 pounds and that's 2 rolls of this stuff plus sealer and paint and electronics. I just picked up a roll yesterday, I'll weight it on Monday to see how it compares to the GG thinlight pads.

    if someone buys a roll, i'd be interested in buying/trading for a piece of it.
