Non-slip didn't work at all
I'm really not impressed with this pad. The materials used feel too cheap to justify the high price tag, it has too much padding, the yellow non-slip material peeking out from under the saddle looked ugly next to the bright white fabric, and the non-slip didn't work at all. My saddle rolled and slipped around more with this pad than any other I've tried. It comes with two inserts, one is a very basic foam and the other looks like coiled fishing line sandwiched between two sheets of mesh, very springy. It was rough cut and was shedding plastic bits everywhere when I tried to take it out of the shim pocket. Absolutely not worth it. Also bummed that smartpak no longer does truly free returns. They stopped sending the return labels in the box so you have to print them yourself. I don't have a printer so I was charged $4 for the label when I sent it back. Very disappointing experience.
