The Little Hero is designed as a first crash pad for the young crushers. We talked to a lot of parents and found out that there are several missing factors for them when they go out with their kiddos. First, the kids are missing their own pad. Your young one can use this pad as a play spot away from the landing zone or as a topper pad for the rest of pad pile. The second thing missing was a way for the kids to get their own stuff to the boulders. This pad allows for stuffing gear into the middle so that the tikes can take some of the load off of your shoulders. The torso length is designed for kids starting at about 44 inches in height, or about 4-5 years old. It only weighs 4 lbs., so it’s no problem to tote around with ease. If you find yourself doing longer approaches, we have add-on padded shoulder straps which slip over the shoulder webbing. The foam is all closed cell, so it’s not made as a standalone landing surface, but it provides great supplemental padding at the base of the boulder.
When your little crusher is ready for his or her own pad and they are ready to carry a light load, the Little Hero makes for an incredible first step in the process.
