SmartPak SmartCell Western Saddle Pad Liner is rated

Functional and right thickness, but poor material
I am pleased with the function and fit of this item, but not its quality at all. While I love the size and shape, and it fits well under my saddle and provides great protection without being overly thick, it's top layer is made of some type of felt material that comes off in waves like shedding hair. It's really terrible! I keep using the pad because I got it at a good price point on a promotion, and it does its job, but the top later is absolutely embarrassing in how bad it currently looks after only a few months of use. I groom it with a lint brush after every ride to get rid of the felt material that pills off and bubbles up every time I use it. While I realize it's meant to be used as a liner, it would definitely be improved if it had a top layer of a more functional material like canvas instead of this weird felt. Not all riders may want to use it as a liner, and even if topped with a saddle blanket, I think this issue would persist.

POA pony finally had a even fit under saddle. Yah no dry spots. Just the right thickness that the saddle did not slip.
