Ok...here's how it happened. I've been using bouldering pads since before the "hogs done ate my little brother". The fatal flaw has always been the depth Vs. support of the foam used inside the pad. Nice big fluffy pads are great for short falls...cooshy! On bigger falls the "cooshy" soon turn to ugly as you either bottom out or twist your ankle deep in the foam. So, on a recent trip to the boulders I found myself about 25 feet up, pumped, getting worried, and unable to downclimb even a single move.....I looked down at my "cooshy" pad. I though of my ankles...I though of the rocks hiding under the pad....I thought....."I need to make a new pad"! I dropped like a piano onto the "cooshy" and it kinda got gooshy. Yup, bruised the ball of my foot and half twisted my ankle. I called up the biggest foam company in the U.S. when I got back to the office and made an appointment. After a lovely factory tour we got down to business. They got me on the right track with more foam info than one man should posess. Seems the only guys who have had it right all these years were gymnasts. They bop onto pads all day long, feet first. Think dense foam. We have incorporated this idea of dense foam into our Maxi Pad. The Maxi Pad is about 2.5" thick and even has a full length zipper so you can quickly adjust your density to suit your needs. The Maxi Pad has an easy carry suspension system that goes from backpack style to an over the shoulder model in seconds. The fold over is not hinged, so when the pad is open you have the full value of the entire pad to bomb onto...no seams to ruin your day. The bottom fabric of the pad is an extremely durable VCN nylon (like our Beef Bags), which has the added advantage of "sticking" to slabs and funny angles better than Cordura or other nylons. In the FISH tradition for excess, we made the Maxi Pad close to a full 4 feet X 5 feet. Yup, 4 X 5. Miss that! Overkill construction, peerless durability, and a remote foot wiping swath make this pad the best available, and far and away the best value. You can also order the Maxi Pad without any foam. The empty version is nice if you want to use the Maxi Pad for a home wall and you just need a nice big sack to contain all your "cooshy" scraps.
FISH Maxi-Pad, empty: SOLD OUT
FISH Maxi-Pad, ready to bop: SOLD OUT
A smaller version of our Maxi Pad. The Mini-Pad is not as small as it sounds, logging in at a modest 36" X 48" and has the same features including the padding and carry system as the Maxi Pad. Good all around choice for a nice pad at a low price.
Mini-Pad, SOLD OUT
(Available in Mystery Bovine and Zebra only)
Here's a fun boot carrier that will help you climb better by up to 8 letter grades! Sounds like hype, don't it? Well, let me break it down this way: You are out cragging and as usual your boots are floating around loose in your pack. You have a seat to BS with some neophytes at the base of your favorite "wired" problem. With a cocksure nonchalance you offer to show them the "sequence". Smug as can be you pull out your boots and they are covered with squished prunes resulting from your impromptu seat. Rats! Now the kids are razzing you and calling ya "pops" as you try to wipe your boots clean. Never would have happened if you had our dasBoot. Shampelt top panel lets the stink out, 420 denier pack cloth keeps the bottom intact. A grab loop and cinch closure finish the masterpiece. Remember: Clean rubber sticks better. Try it sometime. $21.00 ea.
Booze Muffler, 3/8" closed cell foam and suave pelts
will keep the cold ones cold. The Muffler sports an adjusting
wrap around design that fits most cans and bottles with ease,
oh-so-good in your palm. Various pelts. $6.75 ea.
Fish Lids, whether you need a rug, or just want to keep the sun out of your eyes. Tasteful two tone with a big fat FISH logo right on the front. Adjustable to fit most heads. $15.00

We feature two chalk bags that have the wildest patterns in any arena. Think of the craziest Hawaiian shirt ever witnessed, exotic pelts, maybe brash prints --- sometimes even Elvis. Now, what if you had these on your chalk bag? You'd be stoked, right? Well here you go --- The "Fist" model is 7" tall with a 5.5" bottom, and the "Palm" model is 5" tall with a 5" bottom. Both bags feature a "best of both worlds" stay open rim that has non-kinking cable sewn in with numerous rows of stitching. Features a collar closure and our uniqe pile "ligament" inside the bag, plus there is a toothbrush holder for crag maintenance. An easy way to order is to ask for "wild" or "mild" and then pick a color theme.SOLD OUT
White Lung Chalk Bag:
A big volcano shaped bag that will hold tons of chalk...ok, maybe more like 5 blocks. Great for the home gym or those with extra sweaty palms. Pick the "wild" or "mild" versions as above. SOLD OUT
Chalk Bag Belts: Made from 3/4"
flat nylon webbing. Features a no-slip Fastex buckle.
One size fits all. $4.25 ea.
Pro Bag: Our "Pro Bag" is one sharp piece of luggage. We have put overkill construction methods into the world of high fashion. The result is a totally bomber duffel bag, suave as can be, that can hold a complete rack, rope, shoes, food, and still have enough room for a $3.00 bottle of "Thunderbird". The main body features heavy weight Ballistic Cloth in black, or for that sanitary look, our bomber White Vinyl haul bag fabric. The carry handles are made from 2" seatbelt webbing with a 1" tubular sleeve on the carry area. For the fashion kicker, we put eye poppin' fur animal prints on the 12" diameter end pieces. The short hair prints are your choice of Zebra, Dalmatian, Mystery Bovine, and Ocelot. Holy cow! You've got to see it to believe it. 12" diameter ends, 21" long. 2300 cu. in. $36.00 ea.
and B-2 Bouldering Pack:
The B-1 is a lightweight shoulder pack designed for carrying your boots, chalk bag, and maybe some water and snacks while bouldering. The pack body is our ONS Mesh, an extremely tough and durable fabric that is light in weight and since it is a mesh, lets your boot stink escape into the atmosphere instantly. A single over the shoulder strap is provided and is lightly padded with ShamPelt fur. The top pocket has an outside zipper so you can get to your tape and tincture before your flapper makes you bleed to death. The bottom is made from 18oz. VCN fabric for long life. Approximate size is 2000 cu.in. with a 12" diameter bottom. SOLD OUT
If you would prefer a more tradtional set up, order the B-2 Bouldering Pack, which has all the features of the B-1, but comes with two shoulder straps instead of the single strap for over the shoulder chic.SOLD OUT
