Rugged wool felt - 1" thick.
Received my new saddle pad yesterday and I'm extremely pleased with the quality of this pad. Even better than the photo shows. It is a darker gray than the detail shows as well, looking great with my black saddle. Perfect! Thank you very much.
Came back here to order a second pad for my wife, surprised to see a lower price. Darker gray, more like black, and nicer than the photo. An excellent buy.
"Heavy duty, but supple"
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.
