Very nicely made, fits my saddle, though the sides are a bit longer than my particular saddle requires (kimberley stock). It is rugged, but not hard at all. I'm really surprised at the quality; it is definitely worth the price. I just got it, but already prefer it to my other, $75 pad. One note, mine came as a charcoal gray, I'd call it black, but I actually like it a lot better than the pictured one.
