Armaid Rubbit Self Massage Tool Climbing Gear Review

The Only Self-Massage Tool You’ll Ever Need

Climbing Gear Editors' Choice Awards

“There’s no body part that this nifty little gadget doesn’t work wonders on,” one knot-laden tester said of the multi-functional Rubbit. Slide your forearm between the flat roller on one side and the rippled foam on the other to target knots and pressure points, or trade out the rippled foam for an extra-cushy foam roller (sold separately) for softer, more general pressure. Testers loved that they could control the intensity by holding the prongs at the top or adding in a burly rubber band for more oomph, and several slots at the base allowed testers to customize the fit to the size of their forearms and desired pressure level, including widening the whole apparatus to massage their calves and thighs as well. “Whether I need to work out the painful knots from a mega bouldering session or keep my legs fresh after a 14-hour alpine day, the Rubbit addresses everything.” Detach the unit into two pieces to use the rippled side as a neck and shoulder massager, or place just the foam piece on the floor for a quick foot rubdown.
