    2 Gossamer Gear 3/8" pads

    I carry two Gossamer Gear 3/8" pads. One is cut into 30" lengths and goes in the pad sleeve sideways. I have had it down to about 20 with no problems.

    $40 and 11 oz.

    Camp sit pad included.

    Kind of bulky to carry, but a robust kit that is light and a good value.

    looks like eva foam is a different material altogether, i'll get a sample and see how it compares. gossamer gear is the only place that sells retail (i think). i found some other places, but at first glance it looks like they're wholsale distributors. i'm gonna call and get a sample and compare it to the minicel, i'll also try and find out if anybody sells it by the yard.

    And they have been having a sale...see my post in this sub-forum.

    The foam Ed Speer sells is EVA also and he is a HF member who supports the site.

    I use this pad and love it much better than the stiff CCF pads.

    Walmart and Academy sells one similar, 3/8" thick, the one at Walmart is blue and the one at Academy is an aqua green color.
    The one at Walmart is back by the Yoga stuff
    The one at Academy is in the work out and weight department.
