this foam is great for building LARP weapons.
I used this to make my LARP sword and it worked awesome!!!!
This is an excellent cheap way to go 2 lbs closed cell foam that I use in my larping weapon and shield construction. I have also used it in various other craft projects wal-mart ought move it to the craft section, put it in a giant role and have the fabric workers cut it (with perhaps designed equipment) and sell it buy the yard. as per the other reviews it is poor as a camp pad, excellent for crafting. great for things like the growing larping community (this is the go to material for starters), tool storage, gun storage, and anything else you can think of just draw a line and use scissors or a razor blade to cut it.
As a side note the Nerf swords don't help the larp community most of us are older and would break them on each other.
I used this foam to construct shields round and square shields for LARPing. They were easy to cut and stick together really well with DAP contact cement.
As for using them as an actual camping pad, I cannot weigh in. I have no experience laying on one. But, this stuff is a staple for foam weapon and shield construction.
As for value, I marked it down a bit because I've seen them sold for less than I paid.
I bought 2 of these mats at $7 a piece to organize my tool box. just cut to fit in each drawer the trace out and cut for each tool. now i can see at a glance if anything is missing. and you can double layer for larger tool such as air tool.
I was going to get an expensive mat for doing some floor exercises when I happened across this item. It is thick and comfortable and meets the need perfectly. My knees do not sink through and it seems pretty sturdy. I highly recommend! !
I'm not using these a a camping pad. I use them to create "shadow boards" in my tool box drawers. Material cuts easy with a sharp knife and gives a clean look in your tool box. used 2 layers for deeper tools like pliers. Use double sided tape to hold down. I'm currently looking at some really thin magnets to hold the material down in my tool box as well.
Big money saver compared to Craftsman foam.
Sleeping on this camping pad with only a sleeping bag for extra padding was the WORST night of sleep I've had in a long time. It's about as good as sleeping straight up on the ground with a blanket or two under you- or sleeping on a thinly padded carpet. I experienced short moments of sleep interrupted by waking up to find my limbs tingling from lack of good blood circulation. I would not recommend sleeping on this. Go for an inflatable camping mattress or an air-mattress instead.
Could not tell the difference if I was on it or not.
I bought my second one of these, after owning the first for 15+ years and then making seat cushions out of it. (Double thickness works best)
For camping, this will keep the cold away and provide minimal cushioning. Even if you use an air mattress you might want to use this to provide cold insulation.
By far I've used it the most as an exercise mat. It's very good for that. Although it is easy to cut and dent with sharp things, the material retains it's shape really well.
My daughter had to do a chemistry project. We had to purchase this to make a rocket launcher. It worked PERFECT!! - -
I bought this to shadow-line my tool box. Just what I needed.
Cuts easily with a craft knife and the price was right.
I like a simple sleeping pad and this one is perfect for me
